A Note from Our Festival Director:
As we prepare to celebrate the 31st Kingdom Bound festival in two short weeks, I would first like to THANK YOU for supporting the ministry for these years. We are grateful for the many Pastors and churches that have partnered with us to expand the Kingdom of God. Next, I would ask that you prayerfully consider these things…..
1. PRAY for Kingdom Bound 2017. Isaiah 61:1 says “The Spirit of the Lord [a]GOD is upon me (us), Because HE has anointed me To bring good news to the afflicted; He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, To proclaim liberty to captives And freedom to prisoners; To proclaim the favorable year of the LORD.” I believe this is the favorable year of the Lord – this verse clearly communicates the mission of Kingdom Bound. Pray that God continues the work He began in 1987 to bring people to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ and to encourage believers. Ask God to show you your part in this ministry – who is He asking you to bring to the festival. Be obedient, God will do the rest.
2. HELP US GET THE WORD OUT. After these many years, there is still the need to tell others about Kingdom Bound 2017. Pastors, you can help by showing our video to the congregation on an upcoming Sunday. Share our social media posts, display posters and fliers in your sphere of influence. Kingdom Bound is so much more than excellent music – there is something for everyone.
3. Join us on Thursday July 27 for our first ever Kingdom Bound Night of Worship (#KBNOW). We’ve carefully constructed a special evening that will focus around worship and unity for our region while featuring some of the best worship leaders in the country including Kari Jobe, Rend Collective, We Are Messengers, Paul Baloche, and WNY’s own Brothers McClurg. Pastor Jerry Gillis of the Chapel at Crosspoint will share the message on this evening. We will also celebrate communion together and close with a candlelighting ceremony. We are extending a special offer to the churches of WNY as part of our effort to allow as many as possible from every congregation to be present at this unique night. From now until the festival, every order of 3 tickets will automatically be upgraded to receive a 4th ticket free. Use this to bless your congregation or to invite those who need the encouragement and refreshment of this night.
Thank you again for partnering with us to present the Gospel through the Arts. Please let us know if you have any questions.
