What Is a March for Jesus?
Simply a parade composed of worshipping Christians walking behind sound trucks playing simple worship songs while some carry Christian banners and some dance along the route. It is a beautful, powerful worship experience for all ages. Dozens of local churches are supporting this interdenominational event.
Why March for Jesus? ....Because:
He is worthy of our worship!
We point others to the only Hope for this life and the next
God will bless any city that honors His Son like this.
