Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania (Virtual March)

Pittsburgh March for Jesus plans to present a Virtual March in which Christians are encouraged to participate from their homes. This virtual March will be televised by our local Pittsburgh Christian Television Station (CTVN) and aired on social media. The program will take place on Saturday, May 30, 2020 from 11 AM to 12 Noon EST. A worship team will minister song selections from the designated MFJ master list live on the CTVN set.

Declarations, proclamations and prayers will be offered by Pastors, leaders and individuals during the transmission. The broadcast will be interspersed with still photo clips of different people groups and families on their knees praying and praising God from their homes and in small groups. We hope to televise real time comments and praises from the participants. CTVN has a network of churches on a sister station called Faith and Family, we hope to employ these congregations along with our current contacts in the production and participation of this event. The program concludes asking all the participants to simultaneously get on their knees together with the studio audience and crew. At this synchronized moment with up lifted hands all will proclaim the Lordship of Jesus Christ.

Minneapolis/St. Paul, Minnesota (Celebrate Jesus)

This event was created to unify the body of Christ, and lift high the name of Jesus. The event starts at 10:30am where we ask believers across all cultures and backgrounds in the Twin Cities to march through their neighborhoods, communities, and cities for Jesus. This march is a prophetic act of our love for Jesus and despite the current circumstances we will still march together. There will be live music streamed on the free app, Praise FM. We expect this day to be powerful and would love for you to take part in it!

Decatur, Illinois (Praise Driving)

Churches may do an alternative form of March for Jesus on May 30th, as state and local ordinances allow, by having a “praise-drive” or “car parade”. Organized by individual churches for neighborhoods they are located in or minister to already, cars are decorated with color, Scriptures, and encouraging messages–and depart at 10:00 am from their parking lots all over the city. Local radio stations may broadcast the MFJ music or people may play it through phones and car systems (no loud sound systems on vehicles, since we won’t have city parade permits). Song lyrics and prayerscripts will be available to churches for download and distribution. Prayer walkers may want to carry small sound devices to play the music, walking in small groups through the neighborhood and interacting with neighbors as appropriate. Groups should take videos, selfies, even drone footage of their groups to post to local and national MFJ sites. Blanket the whole city: north, south, east and west- with praise and proclamation at 10:00 AM on May 30th!
