The Rev. Major Jemison, senior pastor of St. John Missionary Baptist Church, said the evening's activities will offer the Christian faith community a chance to get to know one another and find ways to help others.
“It's a great opportunity for us to really see the depth of our faith and our commitment to our city,” Jemison said.
The Rev. Trevor Williams, campus pastor of LifeChurch.tv Edmond, said he was encouraged by how churches came together to help tornado victims.
“There was so much love and so much help that was poured out,” he said.
Ogburn and Williams emphasized the network event will not promote a specific church or pastor.
“What a beautiful thing to see so many churches and denominations come together,” Williams said. “We're just trying to lift up the name of our savior Jesus Christ.”
