The Christian holiday of Pentecost commemorates the descent of the Holy Spirit on the followers of Jesus while they were in Jerusalem. To honor this year's holiday, the Christian Broadcasting Network (CBN) and The Jewish Voice will be hosting a major global broadcasting event to air on many major Christian networks in the USA and others around the world on May 29 and May 30.
The television program and web special is called Night of Promise and will run for two hours starting at 8pm EDT (*see below for specific airing information) each night. Additional programming will stream directly following the broadcast two-hour format.
The special will be co-hosted by Gordon Robertson, CEO of the Christian Broadcasting Network, and Jonathan Bernis, CEO of Jewish Voice Ministries, International. The event will feature special appearances by CBN founder Pat Robertson, Michael W. Smith, Joel Osteen, Kathie Lee Gifford, Mike Huckabee, Joyce Meyer, Jentezen Franklin, Greg Laurie, Samuel Rodriguez, Marty and Misha Goetz, Jonathan Cahn, Janet Parshall, Robert Morris, Don Moen, Paul Wilbur, Sid Roth and Aaron Shust and many more.
"Two thousand years ago, the Holy Spirit was poured out on the church. The times were difficult then also, but in the midst of the upheaval, God did incredible work," said Jonathan Bernis.
"Our goal in creating this Night of Promise television special is to unite Jewish and Christian leaders in faith to encourage followers during this difficult time and to believe for an outpouring of God's Spirit in our nation, in Israel, and around the world," said Gordon Robertson.
The special will also serve as a fundraiser to provide humanitarian relief efforts to the people of Israel, who have also been hard-hit due to the global health pandemic. Proceeds will be distributed to several ministries, including Operation Blessing, to aid in those efforts.
