So what is the purpose of Christfest?
Christfest is all about changing lives, believing in hope, loving you and glorifying our Creator. Our prayer for Christfest is that people will be changed, restored, and challenged to serve the Lord and to make a difference in this world.
Why should I bring my youth?
First, it’s a place with a happy atmosphere. What kid doesn’t like that? We’ve tried to create a family, safe and fun environment for you and your youth to renew, grow and connect with other believers as we all worship our Creator. Christfest have so many bands that appeal to the younger generation, and have been blessed with a platform to appeal to and reach the hearts of those who have not yet come to know our amazing God. Challenge your youth to bring someone they know that has not made the decision to follow Christ.
We would love for you to bring your youth out to learn from and worship with our amazing speakers, worship leaders and entertainers. Are you ready? We certainly getting ready to bring you and your youth group a life changing experience.

Sometimes, artists are not available for the dates we have open. Artist’s fees range widely and some artists are more difficult to schedule because of their sound and staging requirements. Unfortunately, the more popular the artist the more expensive they are–one challenge in have sponsors for the event and free-will donations. We continue to trust that God will provide through his people and churches the necessary resources so that we can continue to offer popular artists with powerful messages.
