Worship leader Sean Feucht, a Bethel Church School of Supernatural Ministry alum who has been touring across America on his #LetUsWorship tour, defying governor lockdown orders by gathering in large groups, not wearing masks, not socially distancing, and singing out loud Bethel worship tunes, played a concert in Chicago last night to several thousand worship-goers. This event took place despite the fact that the mayor of Chicago Lori Lightfoot brought in dozens of police to restrain the group from having their intended gathering. Feucht recounts:
We’re gathered here in south Chicago, we notified the authorities, the park service and the police, and the mayor alerted the police to show up and shut us down. The police told us that if we set up right now that they’re going to take all our gear and put is in prison. But Christians are rising up. I’m telling you guys this is a new day for the church, there is our 26th city and we’re not about to stop now.
Feucht and those gathered had the concert anyway in a pivoted form, interspacing the music with preaching and altar calls. Upon hearing word that some people attending had given their lives to Christ, the gang brought in a pickup truck, filled a tub with water, and baptized several people in the streets in the flat bed, while hundreds looked on, prayed and cheered.
After the concert, Feucht and those remaining took to the streets in some festivities, marching up and down throughout the streets of Chicago in the darkness while singing praise songs with over 1000 people in tow. (Numbers according to Feucht, we have not been able to independently)
Up and down they marched, playing guitar, banging a drum, and singing, many at the top of their lungs.
While Feucht may be generous with his estimations of the number of people attending in person, his presence is becoming massive online. His events are being watched by literal millions across his social media pages, accruing 70k comments across a few videos from today. Even a brief live stream by Feucht updating online viewers on the police situation has half a million views, and the event ended mere hours ago.
Feucht will continue his trek across the country, with over a dozen shows between now and mid-October.
