About Christfest 2014
Saturday July 12, 2014
Christfest is a musical extravaganza for all denominations of all ages to come together and celebrate God's love. It will be an evening full of joy, music, and fellowship with 5 well known and accomplished Christian bands that play a wide variety of music. We hope that we will be able to make this an annual event.
Our confirmed performers are: Building Nations, Lexi Elisha, Mark 209, and Bobbie Lancaster, and Y.I.B.I.G.
Tickets are $10 for adults, $5 for children under 12, and free for children under 5. Doors open at 3pm, and the show starts at 4. The venue is the Green Center at DePauw University.
Building Nations is a high energy Christian Rock/Worship band that not only ROCKS any stage but strives to share the awesome news of Christ to ALL nations! The band is just getting started, and is already being blessed with so many great opportunities to play with some great artists. With only 3 years together the band has already accomplished so much.
Audiences respond immediately to the four-part harmony that they are accustomed to in Southern Gospel. However, MARK209’s sound has more of a country grace and their lyrics reflect the life that many live, which allows them to effectively communicate to their audience. Evident in their recordings is the fact that they utilize some of Nashville’s top writers and musicians.
In a culture full of girls and young women seeking to conform to unrealistic perceptions of beauty, Lexi breaks the mold. Audiences leave feeling they've just connected with a real girl who shares her doubts, fears, and dreams openly and honestly. Her desire to share the love of God with the world is coupled with her calling to speak life into a generation of girls who need to be told that they are not alone.
Galatians 5:1 says "It is for Freedom that Christ died to set us free,"and Bobbie is a walking testament to what Jesus can do when you turn your life over to Him. Once focused only on herself and her career, God has transformed her and is using her now as an instrument to inspire heartfelt worship and help His children experience what it means to have Freedom in His name.
