Why you should bring all your teens (and their unreached friends) to Winter Jam this year

Starting this Friday I’m going to be on tour with Winter Jam and I can’t wait! This year’s lineup is shockingly good: Crowder, Hillsong Young & Free, Passion Band, Red, Andy Mineo, Building 429, New Song and so many others. I think this is the strongest top to bottom lineup Winter Jam has had in years!

This musically diverse and super fun lineup will make your teens bang their heads, raise their hands and move their feet! It will be a party with a purpose!

And this year Louie Giglio will be speaking at tons of the Winter Jam cities! I love Louie! He’s one of the most creatively dynamic preachers out there. God is using him to lead a movement of college students and young people to love Jesus more deeply and live for him more passionately.

Last year Zane Black and yours truly split the Winter Jam Tour as speakers. Yes, Dumb and Dumber hit the road with the big boys. One of us gave the Gospel in every one of last year’s 44 city tour. As a result of the Good News being preached, 38,666 young people indicated faith in Jesus via text in response!

This year Zane, Louie and I will be splitting the tour. One of us will be preaching the Gospel in every city. Actually, both Zane and I are going to the first Winter Jam city this weekend (Jacksonville, Fla) just because we want to hear Louie preach!

We will preach the Gospel in between performances of some of the best Christian artists on the planet and the Holy Spirit will bring people from darkness to light and from the power of Satan to God.

Also in every city, either Zane or I will be doing a training of 7 things in 7 minutes that will change the way you do youth ministry during the youth leader break out.

Yes, you’ll still get to hear from some of the amazing artists who will be on the Winter Jam Tour, but you will also walk away with practical training that will help you become more effective.

Winter Jam is a hard event to beat. In a world full of high cost youth events and concerts, all Winter Jam asks for is a $15 donation at the door. That’s it!

Sure you’ll have to wait in line a bit, but waitng just builds the anticipation. It creates the buzz among your teens to make the night unforgettable.

Go to and look for the city closest to you. Then put it on your youth group calendar and make plans to go!

On behalf of all the artists (and preachers) on tour this year, we can’t wait to see you and all your teens at Winter Jam this year!

It’s gonna rock!
