Movement Day Launches New App and Hosts Global Cities Press Conference October 29th

GLOBAL is the Word!
Movement Day Launches New App and Hosts Global Cities Press Conference October 29th

New York City- Collaboration, community and gospel movements are what Movement Day is all about, and on October 29, 2015, leaders from around the world will once again gather at the New York Hilton Midtown to further that very cause. Seeking to bridge the spiritual, economic and racial divides in our cities, Christian leaders will gather for the 6th consecutive year to address today’s urban issues and maximize their leadership potential. All have purposed to accelerate city transformation through the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

In recent years, global interest and participation in Movement Day has been on the rise and leaders at The New York City Leadership Center, founders and hosts for the annual event, aim to capitalize on this growth in order to replicate the movement in other major global cities, to catalyze leaders, and to foster collaboration on a worldwide scale.

Utilizing today’s global technology, the world of virtual collaboration is now available to participants for iPhone and iPad in the newMovement Day 2015 App (as well as for Android users). “This app is very interactive,” says Director of Movement Day & Events, Ebony Small. “It extends well beyond simply offering information and actually allows users to engage with one another without leaving the platform. It will help to centralize communication for our participants and allow them to effectively collaborate on a global level.”

Among its many features, the new app will allow users to:
  • Message their colleagues directly;
  • Discover others who share the same interests;
  • Integrate their online profiles from Facebook, Twitter &
  • LinkedIn; and
  • Publish quotes, photos and social media updates.
Furthering the cause of global gospel movements, Movement Day 2015 will also host a press conference at the end of the day to announce Movement Day Global Cities 2016 – The Nations of New York Hosting the Nations of the World to be held at the Jacob Javits Convention Center, October 25-27 2016.

The press conference will be conducted at the conclusion of Movement Day on October 29, 2015 at 5:30 p.m. in the Gramercy West, 3rd floor, of the New York Hilton Midtown, 1335 Avenue of the Americas NY, NY 10019. Panelists will offer a brief overview of the movement, current realities, and anticipated outcomes followed by a Q&A with the audience.

Facilitated by The New York City Leadership Center and the Lausanne Movement, an anticipated 5,000 global leaders will gather next year at Movement Day Global Cities 2016 for the sole purpose of impacting the spiritual and social climate of their cities by creating learning communities, sharing best practices and advancing high-level, city-changing collaborative partnerships.  The three-day event is expected to be a world-historic gathering of Christian leaders for this generation and will be led by an expert faculty that includes Bishop Claude Alexander, senior pastor of The Park Church, Rev. Bill Hybels, senior pastor of Willow Creek Community Church, Dr. Tim Keller, senior pastor of Redeemer Presbyterian Church, Dr. Luis Palau, founder of the Luis Palau Association, and Dr. Gabriel Salguero, president of the National Latino Evangelical Coalition.
