After the recent tragedy in Times Square where a troubled former Navy recruit mowed down 23 pedestrians, killing one young girl, Christian leaders rallied together and brought Jesus Week to the heart of New York City. A reported 14,000 people were in attendance this past weekend in Times Square for Jesus Week. Jesus Week is an evangelistic outreach that brought the churches of New York together to celebrate and lift up the name of Jesus through prayer, the reading of scripture and live performances.
