Sean Feucht, a missionary, musician and a speaker at last year’s March for the Martyrs, is scheduled to be a keynote speaker and worship leader at the 2021 March for the Martyrs.
Feucht has released over 22 albums and co-authored 5 books. He is the founder of several global movements: Burn 24-7, a prayer and worship movement; Light A Candle, a movement focused on global missions; Hold the Line, a movement that encourages the church to exercise its civic duties. All three of these movements highlight Feucht’s commitment to bringing revival, worship, prayer, and the Gospel to the United States and across the globe.
Burn 24-7 builds communities (called Furnaces) in cities around the world that host monthly prayer and worship meetings that last 24 to 48 hours. The movement began in Feucht’s college dorm room and spread quickly across the country and the globe, with now over 300 communities. Feucht’s goal in creating this network of Furnaces is to “cry out to God night and day for an awakening in the church, an unprecedented global harvest of souls.”
To reach people for Christ, Feucht’s ministry, Light A Candle, focuses on providing humanitarian aid around the world. Light A Candle organizes long and short term mission trips, sponsors children in India, and distributes food and supplies to Iraqi people fleeing ISIS. Feucht himself has been to a multitude of countries (North Korea, Iraq and Afghanistan), spreading the Gospel of Jesus Christ and listening to the testimonies of Christians who have experienced persecution. He has been a voice for persecuted Christians around the world and for religious freedom.
“We’re seeing Christian persecution skyrocketing around the world to levels like we’ve never seen before,” said Feucht in an interview with For the Martyrs. “I know there are other storylines happening and other crises that are taking place around the world, but we cannot forget our brothers and sisters in these nations — we can’t turn a blind eye or a deaf ear to their cry. Now is the season, more than ever, where we need to rise up and be advocates.”
Through his political activist movement, Hold the Line, Feucht organized large prayer and worship services called #LetUsWorship, protesting the COVID-19 restrictions on churches. These protests/worship services were held in cities across the United States, from the National Mall in Washington, D.C. to Waterfront Park in Portland, Oregon during the height of the 2020 riots. Feucht continues to hold these events to advocate for religious freedom in the United States attracting thousands of worshippers.
“We have to go against the grain sometimes and we can’t be afraid to swim upstream,” said Feucht in a short interview with Mike Huckabee. “We can’t be worried about the mob, the trolls online or whatever. We have to do what God has called us to do. Even when it seems like it’s not popular or it seems like it doesn’t go along with the narrative of what we’re seeing, we just have to do it. The Lord will be there with us, he’ll make a way and people will follow.”
For the Martyrs is excited to have Sean Feucht return as a speaker and worship leader at the 2021 March for the Martyrs. To hear him speak at the March for the Martyrs, register at https://forthemartyrs.com/register/
