On June 15th I posted some disheartening news concerning City Reach Washington DC. After months of trying to secure a location for the tent on the National Mall, Pastor Ken Taylor was finally presented with guidelines that we could not possibly meet. You can read that post HERE.
Since that point, Pastor Taylor has been searching for an alternate location for the tent. He has checked on parks, churches and any other locations that seemed appropriate but with no success. Last night we made the decision to pull the plug on the planning of City Reach Washington DC for this year. I hate it so bad but it is the only decision to make at this point.
I have been looking forward to having City Reach in Washington DC for well over a year. A whole lot of other folks have been excited about it too. I appreciate all the interest and all the prayer for this particular tent revival. It seemed like it was a sure thing for much of the time. I did not anticipate it falling apart at this late date. I am so sorry that we have to cancel.
I appreciate all the work that Pastor Ken Taylor put into the effort of this campaign. He put countless hours into it. I also appreciate the other Pastors in Virginia and West Virginia that had joined in the effort. I will be talking to them over the next few days to see if they would like to pursue a City Reach another year.
We are already checking on the possibility of moving another City Reach into the late August/early September slot since that is prime weather for tent revival. I will keep you posted right here on any further developments.
From the very beginning of this adventure we have asked for prayer about the schedule. We desire to be in the right place, at the right time, preaching the right message to the right person. God is able to guide us in that. I know that for certain.
Thanks for reading today.
