University of Mobile President Dr. Mark Foley and UMobile’s Twelve23 Movement director Dr. Joe Savage have been invited to lead a session about the university’s grassroots movement to transform a nation during the 2011 Global Day of Prayer, a worldwide movement started a decade ago in Cape Town, South Africa.
The purpose of the event is to unite Christians for worship through praise and prayer while mobilizing the church to become involved in social issues such as redeveloping urban areas, feeding the poor, clothing the unclothed and supporting the oppressed. Last year, more than 400 million Christians in 220 nations participated in the international call to prayer, according to organizers.
The international conference is being hosted this year in Jacksonville, Fla., at the Jacksonville Veterans Memorial Arena. Previous host cities have included Hong Kong and Cape Town. Plenary sessions will be at the Hyatt Regency Jacksonville, with events on the June 11 Global Day of Prayer broadcast live by The God Channel.
Foley and Savage will give a presentation on “God’s Plan to Transform a Nation: How One City is Doing It & You Can, Too!” on Friday, June 10 at 1 p.m. and 2 p.m. at the Hyatt Regency in Jacksonville. The presentation will include information about the university’s Twelve23 Movement which was launched a year ago by the UMobile Center for Leadership.
