    Pulse exists to bring the message of Jesus to the pulse of a generation by all means possible, through the ministry of Nick Hall and a team of emerging evangelists.

    Through Pulse events, tours, partnerships, livestreams and digital efforts, Nick Hall and a team of emerging evangelists share Jesus online and around the world. In doing so, we unite churches and equip believers to share the Gospel to an increasingly lost and polarized culture.

    Through the Pulse Housing & Training Center, Pulse 100, Pulse Internship, and digital resources, Nick Hall and the team are equipping and unleashing a new wave of evangelists to reach the lost and carry the torch of evangelists, in, through, and for the local Church.
