True Worship unites people of all walks

Bodies swayed to the gospel music that filled the room as Christians of all ages and backgrounds joined together for one night of worship.

About 500 people from all over Fort Worth — Catholics and Protestants — gathered Tuesday in the Student Center Ballroom for True Worship 2004.

“He has a plan for every single one of us, as long as we say yes to Him,” said Brad Thompson, who helped put the event together. “We’re here tonight to accept Him into our lives.”

Flyers posted around campus promised “One City, One Campus, One Night, One Lord,” and that is truly the best way to describe the event.

“I think people were really touched by it,” said Thompson, a senior radio-TV-film major. “It’s powerful when people come together.”

Different ministries on campus and churches across the city decided to hold the event because they got a good response when they put the event together three years ago.

“We really felt like God wanted us to bring different ministries and churches together for one powerful night of worship,” Thompson said.

A band specially put together for the evening played song after song of gospel music, pausing in between to preach and lead the crowd in prayer.

“It’s a good opportunity for the student body to worship together,” said Kristine Clark, an admissions adviser for Christ For the Nations.

As the music played, most people in the crowd sang along. Some closed their eyes and outstretched their arms. Some held babies and some held hands.

“I came because I just wanted to worship the Lord,” said senior Leslie Ginger. “This is amazing and I really want our campus to change.”
