JOHNSON CITY — A continued mission to gather representatives from 1,000 area churches to worship Jesus Christ and engage in the vision to restore Appalachia from drug abuse will be held this fall at East Tennessee State University.

Adoration 2019 will take place Sept. 28 at the ETSU Mini-Dome. The event, described as a regional conference, is being led by young adults and college students. It follows Adoration 2017 and Adoration 2018, both of which drew thousands of guests and hundreds of churches, according to Adoration organizers.

The theme for Adoration 2019 is “Love One Another,” based on the words of Jesus in John 13:35: “By this everyone will learn that you are my disciples, if you love one another.”

“We believe our demonstrations of love for one another can bring healing to the Body of Christ and to our community. When churches work together, great things will happen!” said Simon Mehaffey, Adoration 2019 media director.

The event is free and open to the public. Activities that day will include a public prayer service at 2 p.m.; the Organizational Expo at 3:30; a block party with food trucks at 3:30; and a two-hour main event beginning at 6 featuring speakers, worship music, and information about the drug epidemic in Appalachia.

A church can become part of the 1,000 by appointing a person to be its representative, with that individual registering at www.adorationlife.com. Churches and individuals can also sign up on the website for the biweekly newsletter and can follow Adoration Life on Facebook, Instagram and YouTube.
