PULSE is a prayer and evangelism movement on mission to empower the Church and awaken culture to the reality of Jesus. We bring a fresh expression of Jesus to this generation, with a voice and media that resonate with youth culture. We're not interested in making the PULSE name known; we want the name of Jesus to be known. Since PULSE's founding, we have linked arms with hundreds of ministries and churches around the world to fuel evangelistic movements. Whether we are hosting a big outreach event or providing the evangelistic voice at another organization's event, whether training evangelists on American college campuses or overseas in Africa, the common goal of everything we do is to share the hope of Jesus.
