We have come up with some numbers that we feel are fairly accurate to gauge our total reach. Out of more than 2400 host sites that participated, over 1,000 of those were churches, and others were neutral sites, hotel ballrooms, gymnasiums, homes, etc. We have had more than 480 report back with their results. When we extrapolate the data (counting only about half for the sites that haven’t reported) the totals we end up with are these:
235,000 attended host venues on Sunday
37,000 attended at the stadium on Sunday
Total live Sunday attendance: 272,000
The response to the invitation totaled a little more than 18,000!
That would make last Sunday the largest single presentation of the gospel in American history! Praise God!
When we add our Saturday totals, it means that we reached 312,000 people in live attendance over the weekend, with more than 22,000 making professions of faith. When we add the internet viewing audience, our total number of people who watched either live in person or on the web is over 400,000! These numbers don’t reflect how many people – potentially in the millions – also viewed or listened to the event live on television and radio.
Now we focus on Dodger Stadium. Let’s not let up. Keep on praying! Pray hard for the crusade, web, and media teams. They are working overtime to get us to the finish line.
Blessings to you all!
