'The Church Has Left the Building': Big Crowd Rallies to Worship at Redding's Sun Dial Bridge


ABOVE: Worship leader Sean Feucht appeared on the Friday afternoon edition of CBN's Newswatch to talk about the worship movement taking place in several cities across the US.  Newswatch is seen weekdays on the CBN News Channel.

Worship leader Sean Feucht has gone coast to coast with his outdoor gospel outreaches, and now he's back in California, ministering to people in Redding, Pasadena, Bakersfield, Fresno, and San Diego.

Since California's government has banned indoor church gatherings, Feucht (pronounced Foyt) and his Burn 24/7 ministry are standing for religious freedom by holding large outdoor worship events.

In a video posted to Feucht's "Hold the Line" Facebook page, hundreds of people attended his worship service in Redding under the Sun Dial Bridge on Wednesday. The event was live-streamed on Facebook and users joined the service from all over the country and around the world.

In a recent Facebook post from an event he held in New York City, Feucht wrote that with the response he has seen to the gospel, he believes a Great Awakening is coming to the US. He wrote:

"The enemy has greatly overplayed his hand. He scattered the church and closed her doors. 

Governmental authority was abused to shut her mouth and silence her song. But now that the church has left the building, she is FINDING GOD IN THE STREETS! 

Beaches, parks, and neighborhoods are being filled with a sound of unified worship and prayer. The sick are being healed. The lost are being found. The hopeless are finding hope. Even the fountains are becoming a fresh spring for baptisms! 

I believe there is a Great Awakening coming, a second Jesus People Movement."

Some users readily agreed with the worship leader's assessment with one writing on the video post, "Reminds me of our old Jesus movement days."

Another wrote, "Look at the people on the hill! May God receive ALL the glory!"

Another person mentioned Gov. Newsom's singing ban in churches. "Shout out to California for not letting any man stand in your way. The Lord is with you where you gather," Maureen Cook Mattice wrote.

And another user wrote, "Hallelujah!!! What a beautiful scene watching you all praising our Lord!!!"

CORRECTION: An earlier version of this story mentioned Bethel Church. In a statement, the church clarifies, "This event was hosted and financially supported by Sean himself, and was not hosted or sponsored by Bethel Church or Bethel Music."
