|Created to establish Waverly's first Christian music festival, our goal expanded to making an impact locally, globally and eternally for the glory of God.|
When talking to people who don't know a lot about Revibe we are often asked how much it costs to attend. And typically a conversation like this follows.
Them: So Revibe is a free event?
Us: Yes! We want everyone to come hear great music and the good news about Jesus' love for them.
Them: But you'll probably take a "free-will" offering right?
Us: Nope, this event is FREE and we don't want to make people feel obligated to give. So no offering baskets, no intermission speech asking to empty your pockets, it's free.
Them: Oh, that's unusual.
Us: We know. So is God's love. In fact, it's crazy!
Right now we have a fundraiser going on asking our friends, Facebook followers, and community members to support this event. We do this for three reasons.
1) We want people to invite everyone they know to come to Revibe. Maybe someone who has never heard the gospel will come, and we don't want to make them feel uncomfortable by asking them to give away their money right then.
2) Most, if not all, of our expenses will incur prior to September 12, meaning we need to be fully funded before the day of the event so we can pay all of our performers and crew.
3) We want people who love and appreciate our mission to have the opportunity to give to Revibe. We do NOT want people to give because they feel obligated since they attend the event for free. Rather, we want to reach people who are already looking for ways to support us and are willing and able to help us financially.
The Revibe team started meeting in November to start planning for 2015. It is a highlight of the week for me. Why? Because it is entirely about YOU and for the glory of GOD. We want to make the day the best we can for YOU and for the glory of GOD. We want awesome music from passionate performers for YOU and for the glory of GOD. We want a life-changing message from the guest speakers for YOU and for the glory of GOD.
Revibe 2015 will not disappoint. God has His hand on this ministry because we see it almost daily.
