Australian megachurch Hillsong will draw thousands to New York City’s Madison Square Garden next week for its annual conference tour organized under the banner of “No Other Name.”
The “No Other Name” theme, which is also the title of Hillsong Worship’s latest album, takes into account what the megachurch considers its “collective mandate, calling and great honor.” That mandate, attributed to “His Church on earth” and based on Acts 4:12 in the Bible, is to declare everywhere: “There is NO OTHER NAME whereby men and women find their salvation, sense of purpose and eternal homecoming.”
The popular ministry, led by Pastors Brian and Bobbie Houston, will return to New York City for the second time since its premiere U.S. conference in 2013, when reportedly nearly 7,000 came together for the two-day meeting.
While last year’s NYC Hillsong Conference was held at Radio City Music Hall, this year’s gathering will be held at The Theater at Madison Square Garden, which has a seating capacity of 5,600. And though tickets sold out for the Oct. 16-18 gathering in September, Hillsong Church was still inviting interested parties to put their names on a waiting list in case any seats become available.
