GCOWE 97 City March for the Nations

Excitement mounts for the march

The culmination of the Global Consultation of World Evangelisation will take the form of a huge City March called "March for the Nations" (From Joshua to Jericho). When Joshua mobilized an army to take possession of the Promised Land, one of the most amazing events in the Bible took place. God's people did not conquer Jericho with arms or ammunition. Their approach was unconventional - they marched, blew trumpets, shouted and praised God.

We believe that the March on Saturday, 5 July will likewise be an unconventional event. Leaders from over 120 nations of the world, together with the church in Pretoria and South Africa, will march joyfully declaring that our God, who is a God of Love, is concerned about all the nations of the world and that we share His concern for those that do not know Him as Saviour.

Date and Time:
On 5 July we will meet at 07h30 in time to start the March at 08h00. Please ensure that you are not late. The event should be completed by 12h00.
The March will start at the grounds of the Union Buildings in Church Street (opposite the World Mission Centre) and will end in Sammy Marks Square.
Radio Broadcast:
The event will be broadcast live in Pretoria through Radio Ripple and Impact Radio (103 MHz FM Stereo).
We would like to have as many banners as possible in the procession. The banners MUST ONLY draw the attention to Jesus and His Lordship. (The March is not a protest March). We want to encourage you as families, cell groups, youth groups, Sunday schools, etc. to make banners for this exciting event.
What to bring along:
Please bring along a PORTABLE RADIO so that you can tune in to the broadcast. Ensure that you wear comfortable walking shoes and possibly a hat.
Aged and disabled:
A special bus will be made available to transport the aged and disabled who cannot participate in the March itself. This bus will depart from the Union Buildings at the same time as the March. (If you need to make use of this bus, please ensure that you book at the organizer's office. The telephone number is 343 1165.)
