Creation NE Main Stage, June 28

By Linda
Creation Festival, Creation 2017, Creation NE

Creation 2017 is upon us. The Main Stage is about to be fired up on Wednesday, June 28th. Introducing some of the bands that will bring us those incredible musical moments that we will long remember.

Starting at the main stage at 4:25 pm,  Written in Kings, from the UK will break in Creation 17. The band states that they“strive to change the atmosphere wherever they are.”  Everything WIK strives for is excellence, whether it is in live performance or recorded music, the hope is that it will change your world, even if just for a moment. Captured in the moment with Written in Kings rocking our world sounds like a great way to start the festival.

Next to hit the stage at 5:00 pm will be Jordan Copas. Jordan is a rapper with a calling from God that brought him through difficult years. God is using him, an unlikely candidate (like the rest of us) being used to reach people for God’s glory.

What started out as a one night worship gathering featuring what was then called “Solomon’s Porch” in 2008 at Calvary Chapel in Carson City, Nevada has brought us the super talented band now called “I Am They” begins at 5:50 pm. They have been categorized in the genres of worship, Christian rock, pop, country, folk rock, pop and country pop but whatever genre you put them in, this will be a beautiful, inspirational and worshipful concert under the stars. This will set the audience up in the attitude of worship to sing our hearts out to the Lord in the worship time led by Sorensen.

Bread of Stone is set to hit the stage at 8:30 pm. The band was established in 2004 with music that includes pop, rock and praise. Ben and Bill Kristijanto, followed their father’s advice when he shared with them that he felt the brothers had a calling to music ministry. “We have never set out to make a statement of ourselves as artist,” said Bill Kristijanto, “We are able to do so only through God’s grace.” The band released their 5th album, Hold the Light in 2016. This Bread of Stone video features with their single, The Change features Beacon Light.

The closing performance at 9:50 pm is the one and only Crowder.  What an amazing collection of music this talented artist has given us. He is passionate about his Jesus and ours. His songs are injected with faith in God, worshipful, inspirational, and can break into a hoe-down at any time. He is classified in the genres of contemporary Christian, worship and folktronica.  His former band “The David Crowder Band” formed in 1996  It disbanded in 2012. Crowder’s songs permeate the Christian music airwaves. His most recent album is called “American Prodigal“.

This will wrap up the first night of Creation NE, Main Stage.
