Last week Rob and Lee were able to travel to Nashville and meet with more than 20 other festival directors from across the U.S. as part of the annual Christian Festival Assocation meeting. For two days time was spent in prayer and worship, sharing festival experiences, talking about new and upcoming ideas, an artist showcase, and simple fellowship with like-minded people. All of this in an effort to improve festival experiences for attendees everywhere.
The final day in Nashville was spent at a Luis Palau Next Generation Alliance re:fuel conference. This was a great time of reflection and encouragement as evangelists from all over the country came together to share experiences and network in order to be able to work together. This time included prayer, updates on different programs from various organizations, and seminars.
We are grateful and blessed to be a part of both of these great organizations. Nashville, we'll be back!

The From Islands to Cathedrals Tour is leading up to the release of their fourth album “Cathedrals,” which will be released in November. The album celebrates the fact that we were made to thrive in community and are able to share Jesus in whatever we do. “It means the greatest thing we’ll ever accomplish with our lives is bringing Jesus with us to whatever vocation that may be,” says leader singer Mike Donehey “Our lives no longer depend on goals achieved or dreams realized. Our lives are hidden in Him, He is our life.”
Tenth Avenue North has released three studio albums: “Over and Underneath” in 2008, “The Light Meets the Dark” in 2010, and “The Struggle” in 2012. The group has had numerous songs climb the Billboard Christian Songs charts with 2010’s “Strong Enough to Save” and “You Are More” reaching number 1. In 2009, 2010 and 2012 the group won GMA Dove Awards for New Artist of the Year and Song of the Year with “By Your Side.”
Singer/songwriter Phil Wickham will open the show. The popular praise artist is a California native and has released multiple albums including “The Ascension,” which was released in 2013.

For the fourth year in a row, Rob was invited to speak at the annual Fareway Stores MDA Golf Classic. This event, put on by Fareway Stores, seeks to raise money for the Muscular Dystrophy Association. Rob, along with two other families, were invited to share with the golfers about what their contribution means to MDA and families who live in MD. It was a beautiful day for golf and a great event to be a part of once again. See you next year!
