In August of 2015 God brought a dream to life. The dream? Christ followers coming together in downtown Augusta, GA to celebrate their common faith in Christ. That sun-drenched Saturday morning thousands of believers from across the CSRA gathered for the first ever March for Jesus Augusta.
Again, in October of 2016, thousands came together to celebrate and worship. In August of 2017 and again in August 2018 we gathered for a memorable time of praise, prayer, worship, and celebration.
Saturday, August 17, 2019 YOU are invited to join us as we gather together in downtown Augusta to lift up the name of Jesus and boldly proclaim His Lordship over our community.
We need to publicly share our faith in Jesus Christ and the hope that is found only in him. When the Body of Christ is unified it encourages the local church and displays unity in our community. It’s NOT about being the same, it’s about being united.

Who is organizing the March?
Christians in media in the CSRA are working together to oversee the details of the March. They include WBPI-TV 49, 88.3 WAFJ, 99.9 WUCC, 1380AM WNRR, The Real Talk with Youth program, and Bryton Entertainment. The March is not about any single church, ministry, or denomination; it's about lifting up the Lord Jesus Christ and declaring him the Lord over the CSRA.
What is the theme of the March?
We'll be praising the Lord as we walk down Broad Street, while we walk we'll be sharing the song "Every Praise" from Hezekiah Walker as our March theme.
What is the date of the March?
8-17-19. Saturday August 17th, 2019. All who want to lift up the name of Jesus and celebrate with believers from across the CSRA are welcome!
Where will the March begin?
We'll begin near Curtis Baptist Church. We will march together down Broad Street, then gather for a time of community praise, celebration, music, and prayer at the Augusta Commons.
What is the route of the March?
We'll start on 13th and Broad Streets near Curtis Baptist Church, walking about nine blocks together to the Augusta Commons area.
What time is the March?
Folks will begin gathering before 8 AM. The March itself will begin at 8:30 AM.
What is the purpose of the March?
This is NOT a political gathering. The purpose of the March for Jesus Augusta is to bring the Body of Christ together in unity to praise Jesus Christ and declare his Lordship over the CSRA. We believe the March serves as a statement to the community that the Church (in spite of our differences) is united as a community of faith. We hope this example will in turn inspire and encourage Christ followers in other cities to celebrate with their own local Marches.
