The site of George Floyd’s death has been the location of seemingly endless protests.
At least, that’s what the liberal media wants you to think.
But they won’t tell you how God just took over the entire area – with miracles to prove it!
Floyd’s death while in police custody was a tragedy for all Americans.
It’s sparked protests, riots, and unmitigated violence against police officers and civilians alike.
But the place where it all started—the intersection of 38th Street and Chicago Avenue in downtown Minneapolis—has recently become a site of revival and hope as street preachers have claimed the corner for Jesus.
Joel Bomberger, a preacher with Circuit Riders, said that the citizens of Minneapolis are hungry for love and change in the wake of Floyd’s death.
“A team of our Circuit Riders went to Minneapolis to hold open-air preaching of Jesus and healing calls at the intersection where George Floyd was killed,” Bomberger said.
He posted pictures of himself and other pastors baptizing new converts at 38th and Chicago:
Baptisms happening right now in Minneapolis! Right at the corner of where George Floyd was killed! 🙌🏻😳🙏🏻Just got a…
“There are too many testimonies to recount!!” Bomberger continued. “They were able to preach to thousands and saw hundreds responding to the Gospel of Jesus!!”
“Dozens and dozens of people healed, filled with hope, changed, and born again by the power of Jesus this weekend in Minneapolis!”
Once divided by race and trauma, the Minneapolis community has rallied around this message of hope and transformation, coming together to glorify God through worship and baptism.
And God has been doing great miracles in this place of suffering!
“Just got word that a deaf ear was just opened by the power of Jesus! Praise God!” Bomberger added after one revival session.
Dozens of Minnesotans are coming to Christ through the work of Circuit Riders, Bomberger shared.
The street preachers regularly share the Gospel and lead crowds in salvation prayers.
In recent days, citizens have repeatedly prayed, “I believe that You rose again, defeating life and defeating death. I give you my life. The Holy Spirit…lead me, guide me, show me the fullness of what it means to follow You, in Jesus’ name, amen.”
Bomberger and Circuit Riders are not alone in their work at 38th and Chicago. Several other ministries, including Youth With a Mission (YWAM) and Worldwide Outreach for Christ, are holding daily church services at the intersection.
“We’re going from pain and hatred to healing and hope,” reported Christophe Ulysse, a YWAM leader. “There’s this new narrative of the gospel.”
Ulysse has seen powerful transformations in the past few weeks, including a drug addict who found purpose in Christ and a 19-year-old man who received a calling to be a preacher.
“We need to show that we can affect positive change,” Ulysse said, reflecting on the results of his ministry in Minneapolis.
“You have a voice and you can go to the nations. You can carry this on,” he encouraged citizens.
“We’re empowering them to be carriers of hope.”
Even Ulysse himself has been transformed by worshipping at the site of Floyd’s death. He’s felt the presence of God and the hope of Christ in new ways.
“I came here and I was broken,” he admitted. “It affects team members differently, but those of us of color, as we’re here, we’re watching the change happen through the gospel.”
“My heart is so filled with hope. Those in the neighborhood are saying this is unprecedented unity. They’re feeling an outpouring of love and hope from this nation.”
“The pain [of Floyd’s murder] went to the nation and now the globe,” Ulysse added, “but we believe that healing is now going out from the intersection to the nations and the globe.”
George Floyd’s family is overjoyed that the site of Floyd’s death has become a place of such love and hope.
They’ve been outspoken to encourage peace and justice in the wake of the tragedy, instead of violence and rioting.
“They [the family] endorsed [these preachers],” said Joshua Lindquist, a leader at Global Revival Harvest. “They said, ‘please, this is the message the community needs.’”
“God did a miracle. God’s using this tragic situation for His glory. God is shifting the narrative,” Lindquist concluded.
“Out of [George Floyd’s] life, many will come to the Lord. Many will come to Jesus.”
Praise God for His mighty work in Minneapolis! Let’s pray that this movement continues to transform the city.
