Let Us Worship’ Leader Sean Feucht Says ‘Revival Is Here’ by STEPHEN STRANG for Charisma News
Since the days the COVID-19 pandemic first became big news in the United States, religious freedom has also become big news. In a country founded on the basis of religious freedom, this issue has become more and more politicized.
Worship leader Sean Feucht of Bethel Church in Redding, California, has come to realize this better than almost anyone. I invited him to record a recent episode of The Strang Report podcast to discuss his burgeoning “Let Us Worship” movement, the government opposition he has faced and what all this could mean for the future of the church.
Sean’s movement has exploded across the country, beginning near his home in northern California and extending to places as diverse as New York City; Minneapolis, Minnesota; West Palm Beach, Florida; and just the other night in Kerrville, Texas. But the most exciting event is still to come, Sean says, with what he says will be a “significant gathering” set for Oct. 25 on the National Mall in Washington, D.C.
But why? Why would a worship leader with an international ministry suddenly shift his focus to his own country? And why offer these worship events amidst a global pandemic?
Sean has a simple answer: God’s prompting. “When the pandemic happened, and when churches closed in and these kinds of crazy restrictions began to be imposed on churches, specifically in California, where we’re probably feeling it the worst … I just really felt like now is the time to really activate a lot of what we’ve been doing around the world for the last 20 years. We have a history of going into war zones and into places of catastrophe, places of intense persecution and darkness and bringing worship, bringing the presence of God and bringing breakthrough.”
