ABOVE: Nick Hall, the founder of Pulse, appeared on a recent edition of CBN's Newswatch to give a preview of the Good Friday Worldwide broadcast airing on the CBN News Channel.
Good Friday, observed this year on Friday, April 2, is a Christian holiday observed around the world commemorating the crucifixion of Jesus Christ and his death on the cross. And this year, CBN is providing several special Good Friday services.
The first Good Friday service was presented from the Garden Tomb in Jerusalem at 5 PM Eastern. You can still watch it BELOW in our CBN News YouTube link:
The second Good Friday service was provided by the evangelistic ministry called Pulse. This year's hour-long program featured Francis Chan, Nick Hall, Ebony Small, for King & Country, Michael W Smith, Tasha Cobbs, and Kari Jobe.

Pulse's program will also air on the CBN News Channel throughout the Easter weekend at the times listed BELOW:
APRIL 2nd 8:00-9:00AM
APRIL 3rd 8:00-9:00AM
APRIL 4th 5:00-6:00AM
The account of Jesus's crucifixion and death can be found in the Bible's first four books of the New Testament — Matthew 27:27-44; Mark 15:16-32; Luke 23:26-43; and John 19:16-27.
Good Friday is always observed on the Friday before Easter Sunday, the day Christians believe Jesus conquered death by rising from the grave. The Bible says Christ-followers will rise to meet Jesus when he returns as promised in 1 Thessalonians 4:16-17.
"For the Lord himself will descend from heaven with a cry of command, with the voice of an archangel, and with the sound of the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first. Then we who are alive, who are left, will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air, and so we will always be with the Lord."
For this year's observance of Good Friday, CBN News is providing special coverage of the Pulse ministry's Good Friday Worldwide broadcast.

Pulse created the online service last year in response to churches not being able to meet due to the pandemic. It reached 115 million homes in 120 different countries.
This year users were able to register to host the program in their own homes to help their family and friends hear the good news and many helped spread the word about the program on social media by using the hashtag #GoodFriday21.
Pulse aims to bring the hope of Jesus to the next generation whether it's through Live events or Live-streams, local revival gatherings, raising up leaders, or creating digital resources. "We exist to make Jesus known," the ministry's website declares.
