I'm blown away by some doors God has been opening over the past few weeks to spread the gospel. One incredible opportunity coming up is at Joyful Noise Family Fest on June 7-8 at the National Sports Center in Blaine, Minnesota.
KTIS is a radio network out of Minneapolis that does incredible ministry. They were recently listed as the 2nd most listened to radio station (secular or Christian) in the Twin Cities.
They have founded the Joyful Noise Family Fest a few years ago, and it has quickly grown to draw massive crowds of people for a festive atmosphere of Christian music artists and family fun. Last year, more than 16,000 people packed National Sports Center in Blaine for this festival.
The KTIS team has asked me to share the gospel 5 or so times throughout the festival. I am absolutely astonished by the grace of God in this opportunity.
On Friday night, I will be sharing the gospel in between Gungor and Switchfoot. On Saturday, I will be presenting the gospel multiple times, including at the end of the evening between Jeremy Camp and Third Day.
Not only do I want to ask you to pray like crazy for me, for their festival team and for all those who will be with us on these days ... but I also want to ask those of you in the area to pray and consider who you could bring to hear the gospel at this?
This will be an incredible weekend of friends, family, fun, good music, and more. Here's 3 good reasons to invite a friend who needs to hear the hope found only in the gospel:
1. They will have a ton of fun.
2. They will see that Christians can have a ton of fun.
3. They will have an opportunity to hear the gospel, shared clearly and passionately, with an opportunity to respond.
I would also encourage you to not only invite a friend (or a few friends), but to consider paying for their ticket, and picking them up to ride with you. As the Billy Graham Association used to say when I was working on Rock the River: "100% of the people you drive to an event will come." :)
So pray about it. And pray for me while you're at it. And pray for your friends who are still searching and need to know about the love and grace of God in Jesus. Will you join us for this? Will you help someone who needs to hear the gospel out in a significant way by buying their ticket and yours here?
