What is David's Tent?
A Public Worship Gathering
David’s Tent is about defining a culture that is centered around publicly honoring Jesus. We want to see worship in public spaces become the norm, not a special event. Amos 9:11 speaks of the restoration of the fallen Tent of David, meaning that a descendant of David would once again be on the throne. This is fulfilled in Jesus Christ, who has been crowned King of the Ages! David’s Tent DC is a national confession that Jesus is Lord of America and that we receive Him as such.
A new normal is being set—that America’s capital city will be known as the place where the nation gathers to worship Jesus, just as Jerusalem was known as the gathering place for worshipers in David’s day (Psalm 122:1-5). We see a generation rising that is jealous to see Jesus exalted in the highest places of our culture. The thousands of worshipers from all 50 states who gather here each year are helping this new mindset take root, centering our city and nation on Jesus.
