Nick Hall, evangelist and founder of PULSE, has called on one million people to gather in Washington, DC, on July 16 to "stand for Jesus."

"Our dream is for one million people from all backgrounds to be part of this historic day, standing together for Jesus on the National Mall," Hall said in an opinion piece on the Charisma News. "We're praying for a crowd that is bigger than any of us have been a part of; we want a glimpse of heaven on earth. We believe Jesus can do unprecedented things in our time."

Ten years after his first event, Hall urged Christians to rally for revival at the National Mall, at an event titled, "Together 2016"

The event is organized in collaboration with over 250 groups, and will have more than 30 speakers pray and worship together with the huge anticipated gathering. Some 1,000 churches have already accepted invitations to participate in the worship rally, and more are expected to join in.

"What would it look like, on one day, to rally the entire nation together, not around what we're against - and that's often what we get known for - but rallying people around what we're for, and around the change that Jesus offers?" Hall said at an interview with "Fox & Friends" on Easter Sunday.

Hall had been doing campus ministries for the last four years, and told the young generation that they have an opportunity to "reset" their past by coming to Christ.

The event seeks to bring Christians on a large scale and pray for America to "reset."

"Moments of historic change [are] often marked by historic gatherings, and so, for us, we really believe that this is a time to shift the nation back to what matters," he said.

"During this political year we see so many people of faith becoming negative, critical and jaded... Where is our help found? Where is our hope found? Not in political leaders. What better time to do something on a large scale that draws our attention back to where it really matters?"

"We can still unite, regardless of our differences, and we really believe that Jesus is the one that can bring us together," he continued.

Speakers and Pastors at the event include Francis Chan, Ravi Zacharias, Luis Palau, Josh McDowell, Christine Caine, Sammy Rodriguez, Rev. John Jenkins Sr., Jo Saxton and Nick Hall along with artists including Hillsong UNITED, Kari Jobe, Matthew West, Jeremy Camp, Casting Crowns, Lauren Daigle, Kirk Franklin, Lecrae and Tasha Cobbs, who will be leading the free, one-day event.
