Who We Are

PULSE is a prayer and evangelism movement on mission to empower the Church and awaken culture to the reality of Jesus.

We bring a fresh expression of Jesus to this generation, with a voice and media that resonate with youth culture. We’re not interested in making the PULSE name known; we want the name of Jesus to be known. Since PULSE’s founding, we have linked arms with hundreds of ministries and churches around the world to fuel evangelistic movements. Whether we are hosting a big outreach event or providing the evangelistic voice at another organization’s event, whether training evangelists on American college campuses or overseas in Africa, the common goal of everything we do is to share the hope of Jesus. Learn about our specific initiatives to share Jesus worldwide.

Big Events

We share the hope of Jesus at 150+ live events each year. We believe big events are a powerful way to reach this generation and share the message of Jesus. Every event is embedded in a strategic process and spearheaded by local partners who then carry the message on long after the event.

Reset Lives

After PULSE events, students have handed us razors and bullets, drugs and alcohol bottles, abortion appointment cards and suicide notes. We’re sharing Jesus—and Jesus is changing their lives.

Meeting A Need

Today’s youth struggle with depression, self-harm, addiction and suicide at unprecedented rates. But behind the alarming statistics are stories of hurting people. Our hearts beat for this generation to know Jesus.

prayer

At PULSE, prayer is the engine that drives all our efforts. At each event, there are people praying backstage (and sometimes under the stage!) for Jesus to awaken people’s hearts. Prayer and evangelism are the two heartbeats of PULSE.

How We Began

In his junior year of college, Nick Hall wrote a paper about how to reach his generation with the Gospel. The paper went viral and exploded into a student-led movement of 1,200 students responding to the Gospel on Nick’s campus—and fast spreading to other campuses, reaching more than 50,000 within two years. People prayed, God moved, and PULSE began.

Why We Exist

This generation is our mission field. So many are cynical and skeptical, hurting and hopeless, and increasingly disconnected from the church or a relationship with Jesus. We want them to know Jesus—and as they orient their lives around His love, we believe they can change the tide of culture. The story isn’t over for this generation.
