National Day of Prayer

We had 175 participants from around the world join 13 HPN staff and local prayer leaders for an amazing hour of worship and prayer for the entertainment industry – all done over a Zoom video call!

The event was hosted by Karen Covell, Merlinda Balmas (HPN Hollywood Chapter director, 9t5 Marketplace) and Branden Stoltz (HPN Hollywood Chapter director) and featured presentations from Virginia Tucker (HPN Community & Events Coordinator), Dr. Naima Lett (HPN Beverly Hills Chapter director, Hope in the Hills Church), Dan and Peggy Rupple (Mastermedia International), Dean Batali (TV writer / showrunner), Caleb Monroe (IKON, RealityLA church), and Shun Lee Fong (The Greenhouse). Michelle and Dan Lutz (worship pastors, Expression58 church) led a powerful time of worship.

The evening closed with a time of fellowship between the Zoom participants, and then an After Party hosted by the HPN Hollywood Chapter.

Praise God for a fruitful event on the National Day of Prayer, not at all hindered by this time of social distancing.

On Monday, March 3rd, Karen Covell started a new session of her 6-week J BOMB class in her home, based on the book of the same name by herself and husband Jim Covell. The class was attended by 18 industry professionals who also attend the Warner Brothers 9t5 bible study. They met for three weeks and then the coronavirus stay-at-home order stopped the in-person classes. Karen looks forward to starting up again with this very special group of Warner Brothers Christians once they can gather together in-person.

Group of people at the Hollywood and Highland mall

Over 40 HPN members gathered at Hollywood & Highland mall to walk the red carpet and pray specifically for the actors, people behind the scenes, the films and issues involved in the 2020 Academy Awards ceremony.

During the prayer walk, HPN members were able to pray for the leader of the Oscars post-production team and her fears of rain and high winds disrupting the rooftop after-party. Praise the Lord the wind and rain did not interfere with that party!

Another praise: HPN members prayed specifically for a spirit of humility to be present in the Oscars. Praise the Lord, many of the acceptance speeches at the Oscars were full of humility, honoring and thanking fellow nominees, and advocating for pouring into up and coming artists.

The night proved to be full of answered prayer and encouragement to our community.
