During an interview with the Christian Post, Wilde said that the aim is to have evangelistic crusade events held in as many African countries as possible.
So far, the organizers say they have partner ministries lined up to lead and organize crusade events in at least 30 African countries. But they are calling on churches around the world to help organize crusade rallies in the remaining countries.
“It is amazing, all the unity that God is bringing about for One God – One Day – One Africa,” Wilde told The Christian Post.

What organizers think to do
According to Wilde, the rallies will feature local singers and preachers to best reach their local populations.
Besides, they will plan to take care of basic needs such as renting crusade grounds and buying sound equipment with funding.
As well, 1GDA aims to send 10,000 local evangelists to travel to villages and towns throughout Africa to bring the Good News to their neighbors.
The organizer made clear that that event is an oportunity for the body of Christ to join for a purpose.
“It is not just one denomination. We are all one body and God has really put everyone together for this.
So this will be the largest Christian outreach actually in history in the world.
There’s nothing like this that has really ever been done covering an entire continent, not just a country, but a continent with the Gospel of Jesus in one day.”
