Citywide Gathering Worship City Praise Scheduled at Nashville Churches
With sights set on Adelphia Coliseum, WorshipCityPraise
announces the next location of its ‘Web of Unity’ Church Tour will be Harvest International Church, 4430 Lebanon Road, Hermitage. The event will be held on Tuesday, January 16th, at 7:00 p.m. CST, and is free and open to the public. WorshipCityPraise is a monthly citywide gathering created to
bring people together of all ages, races, denominations and backgrounds to worship God through music and pray for the city of Nashville and its leaders.
Through May of 2001, WorshipCityPraise will be held in various churches and denominations throughout the greater Nashville area. The desire is to create a “web of unity” within the congregations as the monthly gathering moves from church to church of various denominations. In the planning stages is a celebration at Adelphia Coliseum on June 9, 2001, as a one-year
anniversary of the Nashville Billy Graham Crusade.
The foundation for WorshipCityPraise is a monthly prayer luncheon,
appropriately titled WorshipCityPrayer. By invitation of Nashville Council
Member (District 28) Jason Alexander, the prayer gathering is held in the
chambers of the Nashville Courthouse Building. The next prayer gathering of
Nashville area pastors and spiritual leaders will be held on the first
Thursday of the new year, January 4th at noon to pray for unity among the
churches, pastors and leaders of the city.
Over 15,000 people have participated in WorshipCityPraise since its
origination in March of 1999. Formerly held under the name SONICPRAISe, the worship gathering has met at various locations to accommodate the growing number of people attending the monthly event—including the recent summertime series at the Bicentennial Mall Amphitheatre near the Nashville Capitol
Building. This fall and winter, churches throughout the Nashville
metropolitan area have hosted and are scheduled to host WorshipCityPraise.
WorshipCityPraise is organized under the direction of Jeff Deyo, former worship leader/lead singer of Dove-award winning and Gotee recording artist, SONICFLOOd.
“These gatherings are not about a man, not about a band, not about a denomination,” remarks Deyo, “but about hearts and lives radically changed
within the body of Christ.” One element of the mission of WorshipCityPraise
is a call to unity. “Coming together in one location is not unity. Unity is
joining together for the same purpose and then going out to change our city
for Christ. It’s not about filling Adelphia with worshippers, although that
will be exciting. Adelphia is not the end—it’s only the beginning,” says
