In Charlotte, leaders from Evansville (IN), Philadelphia, Richmond & Williamsburg (VA), as well as Raleigh, Wilmington & Winston-Salem shared prayers for expressions in their cities. Kelly believes Philadelphia & Richmond expressions will “happen soon.”
Their event has outgrown this year’s venue. So Movement Day Charlotte is reviewing larger hotels for next year’s expression. It’s also developing The Charlotte Mission Platform, an online platform that will connect all churches in the city. This powerful tool is set to launch this fall!
Court the media. Faith was an essential element to MD Charlotte’s breakout success, but so was publicity & media coverage. In late December only 200 tkts were sold. By Feb. 3rd, the event was sold out! Extensive and highly positive coverage in media outlets like millennial news source Charlotte Agenda jumpstarted sales.
In the 21st Century, it helps to have a strong marketing team. @CaseySCrawford (pictured), Super Bowl Champion and founder of Charlotte’s Movement Mortgage, put his communications team to work for MD Charlotte, a powerful assist that costs the organization nothing. As early as possible, find a marketing ally in your city!
Take a Leap of Faith! Sharing your vision with the world can serve as a powerful catalyst even if you’re not 100% prepared! Plans for an expression shifted from “talk” to “action” when Bishop Claude Alexander announced Charlotte 2018 from the stage at Movement Day Cities – while Rob Kelly and his team were still in the “discussion” stage. #MovementDayCLT
Charlotte’s Rob Kelly says attending other expressions – including @movementdayuk, @movementdaygreaterdallas, and New York on several occasions – helped Movement Day Charlotte develop its vision. If your city is contemplating an expression, do your homework, he says. #MovementDayCLT
Cultivating relationships with Movement Day Founder @MacPier helped Kelly, Bishop Claude Alexander, Nicole Martin (@Nmassiemartin), and other Charlotte leaders better understand the work that goes into building a citywide movement. #MovementDayCLT
Feb 3’s inaugural Movement Day Charlotte was an “overnight success” several years in the making & thanks to the tireless efforts of Director Rob Kelly, his team and volunteers as well as Charlotte’s ministry and marketplace leaders. #MovementDayCLT

Movement Day Charlotte was a success! Over a thousand leaders from the greater Charlotte area packed into one room to convene, connect, and catalyze the body of Christ. Our friends at For Charlotte and @movementmtg put together a report called The State of the City, highlighting some of the issues Charlotte faces and how the church can come alongside. Go to forcharotte.org to see the full report!
It’s just a few weeks away. Movement Day Greater Dallas is Feb. 24 at Dallas Baptist University (@dbupatriots). There’s still time to reserve your tickets for this life-changing event.
Today was a special day. Almost a year ago I agreed to take on the challenge to make Movement Day Charlotte the best it could be. 900 people from 200 different Charlotte churches gathered today to glorify His name and to unite together to impact this wonderful city. I am so grateful for the people that I have worked alongside to make today a massive success.
Kevin and I are excited to be in Charlotte this weekend for Movement Day. Today at the pre-conference, we sat in a room with people from all over the country who are praying, dreaming, and collaborating to mobilize the church to engage with their city. A small group of people from Raleigh are here with us as we dream together what God might do if we are willing to lay down our own agendas, logos, egos and kingdoms to see God’s Kingdom come our city.
Will you pray with us?
In London, we saw a hunger for God from so many leaders. This MD passion is global, not just focused on the cities of the U.K. When these leaders speak of “us,” they’re talking about the US, all of Europe, Africa, Asia and Australia, too! #MovementDay#MDUK
With a full day of plenary sessions, tracks and exhibitors, 900 leaders will gather at Saturday’s Movement Day Charlotte to discuss significant issues ranging from Engaging Millennials, Serving the Marginalized, Multiplying the Gospel and much more. Registration opens at 7:30am. #MovementDay#Charlotte
Looking 15 years ahead to 2033, all the leaders gathering at the @evangelicalalliance offices in London were committed to building movements in their cities, including towns like Bristol with well-developed movements & emerging movements in the earliest stages of planning an expression. #MovementDay#MDUK
Dutch leaders Hans Luttick and Duurt Vonck hosted a 25-person contingent of City Movement Leaders in a first-ever gathering. They believe MDUK’s Roger Sutton can be a guide for them as they look to launch MD Netherlands in 2019. #MovementDay#MDUK⠀
“It was encouraging and helpful to keep focused, dream big and take small steps." —Duurt Vonck
Ten cities were represented in London during Movement Day UK's 15-year vision plan meeting and we were invigorated by the enthusiasm and vision expressed by all the leaders on hand. This short video captures this sense of teamwork. #MovementDay#MDUK
"What does a Movement Day look like in your city?” —Roger Sutton, Director of Movement Day UK #MovementDay#MDUK
The 30-plus international leaders gathered at the @evangelicalalliance offices in London to craft an inspiring vision for the next 15 years of Movement Day UK. This group, which included President of the New York City Leadership Center, @CraigSider, deeply pondered the question: “What does a Movement Day look like in your city?” #MovementDay#MDUK#UnitedKingdom
