(Minneapolis, MN) — April 21, 2023 — Evangelist Nick Hall will share the Gospel at FTS, the largest university outreach event in history, on April 29. The evangelist, speaker, and founder of Pulse will speak in front of an at-capacity stadium crowd of 60,000 or more.
This is the first time a stadium event of this magnitude will be held at a university campus, and it all started when two University of Oklahoma students named Josh Robinson and Nathan Wong co-founded FTS and dreamed of holding the event many months ago. The student leadership team asked Nick Hall to be the main speaker at the outreach.
“Revival started at Asbury University earlier this year, and now we’re seeing a movement forming again in Oklahoma City with the next generation as they look for hope in a dark world,” says Hall. “FTS is a place where an entire community can come together in one stadium to hear the Gospel message.”
Chance the Rapper will headline this unprecedented event as he crosses the divide between popular culture and a stadium-capacity evangelistic outreach. Kari Jobe, the Grammy-nominated worship artist behind the songs “The Blessing” and “Forever,” along with Grammy-winner Chandler Moore from Maverick City, will also perform.
The free event, known as FTS for “Fill the Stadium”, takes place at the Gaylord Family–Oklahoma Memorial Stadium in Norman, Oklahoma.
Following this stadium outreach in April, Hall will share insights about how to reach the next generation at a high-profile TEDx event to be held in Fargo, North Dakota on July 20. The event will take place at the Fargo Civic Center where Nick will have the opportunity to share the Gospel during an 18-minute TED Talk presentation.
Other speakers at the TEDx event in Fargo include venture capitalist Molly Wood, Harvard student Penelope Hartogensis, and filmmaker William Greenfield.
Hall sees TEDx as a catalyst for another ambitious plan: to reach the entire state of North Dakota with the Gospel, starting with his TEDx talk and into 2024.
“Pulse launched in North Dakota back in 2004 through my English paper at NDSU,” he says. “Before that, my life was impacted through Luis Palau’s Mission North Dakota back in 2000. People have been asking us to lead a statewide effort for years, and we are asking if now is the time?”
