Gathering to
change Culture

 In every city we have seen prayer tents filled and lives changed after the alter call was given. We are praising God for so many changed lives!

If music is the universal language, then it makes sense that LifeLight would use this tool to reach people’s hearts as we proclaim Jesus’ name. From the very beginning, the heart of LifeLight has been to reach people with the truth and revelation of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Changing course from the annual large festival, LifeLight now holds smaller, one-day festivals, both in the United States and internationally. Our regional festivals bring music, speakers, and action sports into local communities, sharing the love of Christ and hosting a positive, safe atmosphere for youth & families.

It is a recurring theme to hear back from each city that the people attending our festivals are people who would chronically avoid church. After coming to the festival, they are now seen plugging into the local Church!
