Momumental Win in Mexico City
We had a monumental, God-moving and answering win this week. On Friday we booked the Metropolitan Theatre on September 20th for our training event for 3100 students.
We've been working for months on securing a venue for our event this fall, but found that virtually every venue in this city has already been booked every Saturday throughout the fall semester. The Metropolitan Theatre had the 20th of September open, but there were two groups ahead of us who wanted to rent the venue on this date, but had yet to sign a contract.
On Friday both of the groups who were on hold for September 20th decided to move to another date. We moved quickly in committing to rent the Metropolitan on this date.
The Metropolitan is a classic old-style theatre that seats 3100 people. Typically the venue is rented for 3-4 hours for a concert, but they are letting us have it for 8 hours. We've lined up Ticketmaster to handle ticket sales, and the price will be a little over 5 bucks per student.
So here’s the line up for the fall semester:
August 8: Rick Warren will speak to 3500 pastors at the World Trade Center (and we share during this time the vision of Citywide transformation, movements on every campus, and give pastors ownership of inviting their top students to the Sept 20th training).
September 20: Train 3100 students at the Metropolitan Theatre to reach students on their campus lauching and leading a movement on their campus. If God continues to move, I believe we will have groups on most of the 400 university campuses in this city by next year at this time.
