The Pentecostal/Charismatic Churches of North America held a three-day meeting in late February in Los Angeles focused on G.O. 2020, a massive evangelistic outreach planned for three years for the month of May. The group is a network of denominational leaders representing 40 million Christians in North America.
Sessions were focused on evangelism and prayer for Miracle in May 2020. Global Outreach Day International President Werner Nachtigal prayed and encouraged PCCNA leaders. Nachtigal was part of a team with G.O. 2020 USA Director Dave Gibson and Assemblies of God USA Evangelist Joe Oden that ministered at the annual meeting.
"I believe that we are living in the most opportune days of the Gospel in the history of the church," said Dave Gibson, GO 2020 USA Director. "I think we can see the finish line in reaching unreached people groups. Every single unreached people group has been engaged as of last year at the Finish the Task Conference by 2033. That's every Bible in every language and every church in every village."
Oden announced that the Assemblies of God USA has launched an "Each One Reach One" campaign as part of Global Outreach Day. "Next May we're praying and believing we can mobilize 10 million people to reach 100 million for Christ," he said. "Fifty districts have appointed evangelism coordinators to help get the vision of evangelism to local pastors. We're asking pastors to do something simple such as announce it." Assemblies of God USA has created a website at ag.org/go2020 with resources for equipping Christians to evangelize.
"Let's believe for one of the greatest harvests we've seen in the history of the church," said Oden. The year 2020 is the capstone of the PCCNA's three-year "Miracle in May" campaign launched in 2018 with a Year of Prayer, a Year of Caring in 2019, and then a Year of Sharing. The "Miracle in May" campaign started at the 2017 annual meeting in Charleston, S.C. Other PCCNA members, including Church of God, Church of God of Prophecy, and International Pentecostal Holiness Church, have devoted online resources to promoting and equipping members for evangelism and outreach on Global Outreach Day.
