FAYETTEVILLE, Ark (UATV) – Rapper Lecrae and singer Joe Barnes visited the University of Arkansas.
On Thursday, April 14th, Christian fraternities at the University of Arkansas, in partnership with Christian Organization “Pulse”, put on a concert featuring Lecrae and Joe Barnes.
This concert comes just a week after Greek Fraternities hosted “ROW” weekend, during which artists such as T-Grizzly visited Fayetteville for a weekend of events.
The event put on by Pulse however is more than just a concert. There were guest speakers, merchandise stands, and moments of worship for University of Arkansas students.
Pulse is currently hosting shows on college campuses all across the country as they prepare for a major event. On June 24th-25th, Pulse will be hosting “Together 2022” at the Cotton Bowl in Dallas Texas.
This event will mark the 50 year anniversary of “The Jesus People” movement. The Jesus People was a movement in the late 1960’s and early 1970’s that encouraged young people to become involved in the Christian faith.
While the movement eventually subsided, it spawned a new form of evangelical Christianity that still exists today. Youth churches, youth groups, youth ministries; all were created as a result of the Jesus People movement.
