October 2020 – In July, thousands of people gathered on Huntington State Beach in Orange County, California, for what some say reminds them of the Jesus Movement of the 1960s.
The beachside gatherings, known as Saturate OC, have caused a ripple effect, growing from a few hundred people the first week to 2,000 by the third week. At press time, future plans for the movement were open ended.
Saturate OC is under the leadership of New York couple Parker and Jessi Green.
“In 2016 we decided to move from New York to California because we saw a few visions and through prayer, really believed God was going to do something in Orange County,” Jessi told
After a year of preparation including church partnerships and evangelism training, the Greens are now seeing God bring their vision to life.
“The vision that we saw is happening,” she exclaimed, “and people are getting saved and baptized and then going out and sharing the gospel throughout the week and coming back the following week and baptizing people.”
Sean Feucht, a worship leader with Saturate OC, told Fox News, “[I] think the church has been locked away in quarantine for so long that we forgot the power and authority of when we get together.”
“We can still be the church even if we’re not in our buildings,” he added.
