Worship Band: Sixteen Cities

We are excited to welcome back Sixteen Cities ! T heir story and band philosophy fit so well with the heart of our trip! Without any intention of being a Christian rock band, they started meeting at their high school each week, in an attempt to reach their friends for Christ.  They reached hundreds of students on their campus and saw radical transformation at their school as a result of reaching out. It wasn’t long before the band knew they were called to use music as a way to reach their generation. “It is our desire to be a band of servants, humbly offering our gifts and talents to reach this world for Christ. We know we’re just a bunch of normal guys, living each day in the grip of God’s grace,” says front man Josiah Warneking.  Hear their or watch their to get to know them better.

Speaker: Alex Hershey, The Branches UMC. Alex leads a brand new church called The Branches, in Plainfield, Indiana, which has only just launched in December 2013. He has been a student pastor in the hills of Kentucky, an associate and youth pastor in Monticello, IN, and a head pastor in Union City, IN. He has a heart for camping ministry and missions. Alex Hershey is a husband, father of Elliott & Audrey, lover of music and sports and all things Cardinals baseball. Most of all, he is a follower of Jesus Christ and has a deep desire that all people come to know the awesome love of God.
