NORTH CHARLESTON, S.C. (BP) -- Evangelicals from across the state of South Carolina plan to gather at the North Charleston Coliseum & Performing Arts Center for a day of prayer and fasting called by Gov. Nikki Haley.
The June 13 event, "The Response South Carolina: A Call to Prayer for a Nation in Crisis," will mirror a similar emphasis on prayer to be held during this year's Southern Baptist Convention annual meeting June 16-17 in Columbus, Ohio.
"The Response is an evangelical all-day event of worship, fasting and prayer to intercede for a nation in crisis," said Brad Atkins, pastor of Powdersville First Baptist Church in Easley, S.C., and chairman of The Response South Carolina planning board. "The event is open to all those who believe that salvation is found only through Jesus. It is not a time for preachers to pontificate or politicians to make political speeches. It is a called time of repentance and worship."
