Over 5,000 Join Sean Feucht, Eric Metaxas in Times Square: ‘There’s a Church That’s Rising Up That’s Refusing to Back Down'

Sean Feucht’s “Let Us Worship” tour stopped in New York City’s Times Square on Sunday night (Sept. 25) in an event that Feucht said “was hijacked with praise, joy and salvation…If it can happen there, it can happen anywhere!”

There was no stage, big light show, or video production, just Feucht’s band filling Times Square along with 5,000 other voices, the majority of which were New York City residents, singing praises to God in one of the busiest parts of the nation.

Feucht told ChurchLeaders that the NYPD said “they’ve never seen anything like” the faith-based Christian event they witnessed last night.

“When people say the church is dead here, don’t listen to them,” Feucht said. “God is moving, people are rising up. There is a bold church in the midst of, you know, the COVID pandemic and the lockdowns and the tyrannical government orders from the governor and mayor here. There’s a church that’s rising up that’s refusing to back down and we experienced that last night and it was very, very, very powerful.”

Videos of the event posted throughout social media show that thousands of people from all races and different denominations came together to worship God. Clips show people speaking in tongues, surrendering to God, praying over people, waving flags that read “Jesus,” dancing, and screaming the name of Jesus in the streets of New York.

Christian conservative radio host and best-selling author Eric Metaxas joined Feucht Sunday night. In response to Feucht’s Twitter message, “Revival just hit Times Square. No one wants to leave,” Metaxas said, “And keep in mind, we were there praising Jesus loudly not merely in Times Square last night, but at the very moment—sundown—when the Jewish New Year was beginning. Aslan is on the move!”

“Today when we worship we are doing spiritual warfare,” Metaxas told the crowd. “We’re not just singing songs. The enemy wants this city. The enemy wants to rob you and your children of salvation. Jesus wants you to stand firm and induce spiritual warfare. When we worship, I want you to know you are doing spiritual warfare—you are calling Jesus into this place and he is going to come and we are going to see his hand do things in this city.”
