Our story

The History of Our Movement

Decades of generational inheritance and spiritual lineage

In 2018, our spiritual father Lou Engle called for celebration over the ending of his ministry, The Call. For over two decades, TheCall hosted massive Joel 2 catalytic gatherings for the purposes of prayer and fasting across America. CONTEND has come out of this very movement.

We believe that is time for the double-portion generation to come forth. There is coming another generation who will take the message of fasting, prayer, and Nazarite consecration to the nations, filling stadiums and transforming cities in their wake. But we are convicted our hearts must stay connected to the roots of our spiritual fathers. For this purpose, we hope to commemorate the legacy and ministry of a father on this page.

We love you Papa Lou!
