12/03/2014 - Newsboys to Headline RiseFest

RiseFest is pleased to announce the 2015 Saturday night headliner, Grammy-Nominated, Dove Award-winning, Newsboys. 


“This is probably the biggest band announcement RiseFest has ever made.” said President and Founder of RISE Ministries, Rob Roozeboom. “Newsboys is a band that I have respected and enjoyed since I was a teenager in high school. They’re one of the biggest bands in Christian music and we are ecstatic to have them at our 10th festival. Also, my 7 year-old daughter has been asking me for the last year if we could get the ‘God’s Not Dead’ band at RiseFest. Not that she had anything to do with the decision to bring them in…well maybe just a little!”


Since arriving on the scene in 1985 in their native Australia, the Newsboys have taken Christian music by storm. Nearly three decades later, the iconic band is an undisputed industry leader, garnering six gold albums; 8 million units in career sales; 33 #1 singles; multiple GRAMMY® and American Music Award nominations; and signature hits ranging from “He Reigns” and “Born Again” to their recent 15-week chart-topper, “We Believe.” Expanding their reach into film, the band appeared in the 2014 Pure Flix hit, “God’s Not Dead,” inspired by their song of the same name. Currently comprised of drummer Duncan Phillips; lead vocalist Michael Tait; guitarist Jody Davis; and keyboardist Jeff Frankenstein, the Newsboys’ latest recording, Hallelujah For The Cross, marks their first-ever collection of hymns.

Keeping things fresh can be a challenge in all aspects of life.  Old things can seem stagnant and past their “due date” and we get caught up in the glitz of what’s fresh and unchartered. And then there are those things in life that just become more poignant, more meaningful and quite simply, more needed as time goes on.  Their depth and power never seem to lose their luster.

So, when the Newsboys decided to unveil their first ever hymns collection HALLELUJAH FOR THE CROSS, this was their first challenge.  How do we take these powerful, foundational hymns, that for hundreds of years have managed to stay valid and not become redundant even though they were written so long ago, and refresh them for today’s listener?  The hymns don’t necessarily need to be rescued but a new audience needs to hear them.

“This album is a nice detour to a place, by today’s terms, less traveled,” Michael says.  “I won’t say unchartered because I’ve been there in the past but this is not my usual fare. For me, as a seasoned musician, I like the fact that we could bring something, still intact, that might usually be left to an older generation, to the forefront of where we are today with CCM and music period, and make it new again.”


RiseFest tickets are available now for individual and group rates. These tickets are good for both the Friday and Saturday of RiseFest. A new ticket edition, the Prime Package, is available as well that includes RiseFest ticket, festival t-shirt, autograph fast pass, and special hospitality tent. Only a limited number of these packages are available. Tickets can be purchased here or at the RISE Ministries office. 


RiseFest features well known and up and coming Christian artists. In addition to  musical acts, attendees can visit seminars and listen to speakers. Children can play games and make crafts in the Kids Zone. RiseFest 2015 marks the festival’s 10th installment, the fourth in Sheldon after being held in Orange City since 2005. Camping is also available for the weekend. RISE Ministries, along with its sponsors, partners, and volunteers seek to make the atmosphere of the event fun and meaningful for all ages.
