Update on SatanCon!
God did amazing things at SatanCon.
From Fox News. Christians associated with an organized evangelistic outreach at the recent SatanCon in Boston claimed approximately 100 people converted to Christianity during the event.
Kris Kubal, chief program officer at the Purcellville, Virginia-based Intercessors for America (IFA), told Fox News Digital that their sources on the ground claim there were approximately 120 conversions to Christianity attributable to evangelism efforts at the venue. …
Multiple Christian groups, such as IFA, converged on Boston over the weekend in response to SatanCon, dispatching members to post around the event, pray and communicate their faith with those in attendance, Kubal said.
IFA’s regional leaders in Boston told the Christian Post they felt called to pray for the souls of the attendees. …
“Our approach was very different from what you may have seen on the news,” Kubal said, noting that those associated with her organization were not the ones shouting and brandishing protest signs outside the hotel. “Our approach was to speak in love, and we were more interested in people being set free, not praying against them; having conversations, not shouting.”
Kubal said they were surprised to learn during their conversations with some of the Satanists that many of them had been raised as Christians, but “maybe had a hurt from the church and now had navigated away from the church.”
“So that was a surprising thing,” she added.
While some people were antagonistic toward their efforts, Kubal noted the absence of any notable clashes and said there “were a lot of good conversations that happened.”
Kubal added that “we may never know” the ultimate results of their evangelism outreach in Boston, and quoted John Quincy Adams: “Duty is ours, results are God’s.”
Sean Feucht, founder of the Let Us Worship movement, was also involved in the outreach and said approximately 250 Christians from 20 different nationalities “mobilized” a response to SatanCon. …
In what he described as “a concerted church effort” involving local ministers and multiple groups, Feucht said participants worshiped, prayed and “led at least 98 people to Jesus, but prayed with hundreds more.” …
Both Kubal and Feucht suggested that the U.S. is engulfed in a spiritual war that is becoming increasingly apparent.
“I think the darkness is getting darker, I think the light is getting brighter, and this is the season we live in,” Feucht said. “It’s one of great polarization.” …
From The Christian Post. Christians from across America infiltrated The Satanic Temple’s SatanCon in Boston, where they met with and witnessed to atheists and satanists at what was billed as the “largest satanic gathering in history” over the weekend.
The gathering was held in downtown Boston on April 28-30, with the theme of “Hexennacht in Boston,” a German phrase that means “Witches Night in Boston.”
Evangelist Sean Feucht shared a video from the event on Twitter Sunday that showed one of the SatanCon attendees on stage ripping up pages from the Bible. Some of the Christians who were covertly ministering at the event claimed that nearly 100 people had made decisions to follow Jesus, he added. But that claim has been disputed by others.

Lynn MacAskill, one of the regional leaders in Boston for Intercessors for America (IFA), was among the Christians at the event. She told The Christian Post, “While Christians were definitely in the venue and mingling with the SatanCon attendees, we did not hear of any salvations among attendees.”
“However, we were told by several sources that Revive Boston and YWAM evangelists did record 98 salvations and at least 15 recommitments to the Lord among regular people during street evangelism,” MacAskill told CP on Tuesday. In Feucht’s defense, MacAskill said the stories were simply “crossed,” but he was correct that Christians were in attendance at SatanCon.
“Numerous Christians from several teams did minister to SatanCon attendees though, with some great stories, so seeds were definitely sown,” she added. “God really did move as we were able to be in the venue. Everyone was peaceful and polite, and we felt God gave us specific prayer assignments, especially on Sunday, that were powerful.”
MacAskill added, “There were many opportunities to show kindness and love to those attending in the name of Jesus.” Leading up to the event, Christians from across the United States prayed for the Christians who planned to attend the gathering.
“You could definitely tell a lot of prayer had gone before us due to the peaceful nature of interactions and openness of many, though definitely not all attendees, to dialogue with believers,” MacAskill said. The IFA Boston co-leader revealed that most of the attendees were “averse to being prayed for.”
“A lot of them had been raised Christian and had been hurt or oppressed by the church, so I think that’s something we as the Body of Christ need to learn from so as not to push people away from knowing Jesus,” she continued. “Several evangelists shared with me that although they were opposing the Church, many of them smiled or their eyes softened or even shed tears when they heard the name of Jesus and that He loved them.”
Nevertheless, MacAskill believes “seeds were sown,” and now she charged believers to continue to show the love of Jesus to the world: “We need to be faithful to continue to pray that these seeds will be watered and that other Christians will be called to show the love of Jesus to these people wherever they call home.”
According to its website, events and panels at the event included: “Hellbillies: Visible Satanism in Rural America,” “Deconstructing Your Religious Upbringing,” “Sins of the Flesh: Satanism and Self-Pleasure,” “Reclaiming the Trans Body: A/theistic Strategies for Self-Determination and Empowerment” and “Re-imagining Lilith as an Archetype for Reproductive Justice.”
SatanCon was held intentionally in Bean Town and “dedicated to Boston Mayor Michelle Wu for her unconstitutional efforts to keep TST out of Boston’s public spaces.”
The organization was referring to the efforts of city leadership to pass a measure prohibiting the use of city flagpoles as a “forum for free expression by the public,” which followed a U.S. Supreme Court ruling finding that Boston’s refusal to allow a Christian group to fly its flag on a city flagpole violated the U.S. Constitution.
The Satanic Temple has been engaged in a feud of sorts with the city of Boston that dates back to before Wu assumed the title of mayor. In 2021, the group filed a lawsuit against the city for denying its requests to give invocations at city council meetings.
