THE SEND exists to mobilize and activate a generation into their missional and evangelistic calling.
It was born out of the prayer movement of The Call. After a catalytic gathering called Azusa Now, a collaboration of leaders came together to found THE SEND. Those leaders were Andy Byrd (Youth With A Mission), Brian Brennt (Circuit Riders), Daniel Kolenda (Christ For All Nations), Michael Koulianos (Jesus Image), Teo Hayashi (Dunamis Movement), Todd White (Lifestyle Christianity) and Lou Engle (The Call).
The vision was for a gathering where success was not the number gathered but the number activated to reach one of five key mission fields:
- (1) Nations
- (2) Universities
- (3) High Schools
- (4) Vulnerable Children
- (5) Local Communities.
From the first gathering at Camping World Stadium in Orlando, Florida it was clear this was not an event but a movement. A generation was ready to move from inspiration to action. Over the last years THE SEND has filled stadiums and arenas in Kansas City, Brazil and Norway and tens of thousands of people have committed to take missional action is the result. Take a look at the impact of each gathering.
THE FOUNDING COLLABORATORS:
Collaboration is best defined to us as “different gifts, equal sacrifice.” We believe thn only way to see nation-wide impact is through uncommon collaboration. That’s why Youth With A Mission, Lou Engle Ministries, Circuit Riders, Lifestyle Christianity, Christ For All Nations, Jesus Image and Dunamis movement united together to start THE SEND. Today, THE SEND continues collaborating with movements and ministries across the nation.
