LIVINGSTON, N.J., April 9, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- COVID-19 and shelter-in-place mandates across the country have disrupted plans for a traditional American Easter Sunday this coming weekend. This year, however, a group of church leaders have planned a national video streaming broadcast event called Easter Across America. It will be a free two-hour video streaming event offered on Facebook and beginning at 7pm EDT, 4pm PDT.

Almost all families will have to forgo the big holiday dinners with extended family, egg hunts, and other outdoor group activities typically associated with the holiday. Social distancing and shelter-in-place quarantine measures have been in effect for weeks in various parts of the country and many Americans are starting to feel the effects of isolation and an uncertain future.

"It's time to place a pause on the pandemic and be reminded of the treasured message of hope and renewal in the Easter Story," said Kenny Jahng, co-lead of, which has a membership of 24,000+ church leaders across the country. "We're seeing that people are yearning for a sense of unity and shared experiences again," said Jahng.

"We feel that Easter Across America is what the country needs right now," according to Katie Allred, founder of's Facebook Group.

The event promises a mix of family-centric content, featuring brief messages from prominent preachers, engaging music segments, eclectic comedy routines, and other segments offering a moment to laugh, relax and focus on the message of Easter tradition. The current schedule includes:

  • Andy Stanley
  • Bob Goff
  • Max Lucado
  • Miles McPherson
  • Edgar Sandoval Sr.
  • Michael W. Smith
  • Kari Jobe and Cody Carnes
  • Mark Hall of Casting Crowns
  • Jeremy Camp
  • Candace Payne
  • Michael Jr.
  • And many more

Medi-Share, one of the leading health care sharing ministries in the United States, is supporting the event and will offer a special presentation during the broadcast offering the audience a way to participate.
