(Taylor Berglund) David’s Tent has been worshipping for over six months straight—and has no intention of stopping anytime soon. David’s Tent is a 24/7 worship tent set up at the foot of the Washington Monument, on the National Mall in Washington, D.C. It’s named after how, in 1 Chronicles 15, David constructed a tent for the ark of the covenant and staffed it with worship singers and musicians for the length of his reign.
Jason Hershey founded David’s Tent in 2012, running it for 40 days to correspond with the 2012 election. In 2013, David’s Tent ran for 42 days, reaching 1,000 consecutive hours of worship. In 2014, David’s Tent did 50 days, one for each state. And on Sept. 11, 2015, David’s Tent started its most recent run—one that won’t end until Nov. 8 (Election Day). Ryan Montgomery, administrative director for David’s Tent, explained the heart of the organization and their three objectives. FULL REPORT
