It was pretty much the most awesome moment to be up there with him and Tim Tebow was up there, and he's speaking and it was just a powerful moment," West told The Christian Post during a media Q&A.
The event, which drew nearly half a million people, was inspired by evangelist and college pastor Nick Hall, founder of PULSE. Together 2016 brought Christians from all over the nation together in prayer to empower the Church and awaken the culture to Jesus. more >>
