Don't Miss the Matthew Ward Concerts at the Music Factory in Anoka on August 2nd & 3rd!!
Dear Fellow Ministry Leader,

We are really excited to tell you about the Matthew Ward Band concert coming up at the Heart of the City Music Factory in Anoka in just a week and a half - on both Friday and Saturday nights - August 2nd and 3rd at 8 PM!

Matthew was the amazing male vocalist brother of the influential "Jesus Movement' era sibling group "The 2nd Chapter of Acts". Matthew Ward went on to pursue a successful solo career after many years as part of the 2nd Chapter of Acts touring the world. Matthew's voice is a real wonder and is considered one of the best male vocals in Christian music!

Matthew will be coming with a 7 piece band - including two female vocalists to recreate the 2nd Chapter of Acts sound - as well as performing songs from his many solo projects.

This is a rare opportunity to hear one of the great pioneers of Contemporary Christian Music! He is not only very talented, but he is very sincere about using his talents for the glory of God!

Tickets are $40.00 in advance and $45.00 at the door. The Music Factory is not handicapped accessible and there are some stairs to climb . JUST CLICK ON THE LINK BELOW TO ORDER TICKETS NOW.

Phil Keaggy's Two Shows SOLD OUT and now ANOTHER SHOW HAS BEEN ADDED !
We knew that Phil Keaggy would have a great turnout to his two concerts at the Music Factory on September 14th, but we didn't expect them to sell out by mid-June!! So we contacted his agency to see if he would be interested in doing another concert on the night before the other two - on September 13th and he agreed! So we are really excited to let those of you know that if you didn't order a ticket in time for his other two shows, you've got a chance to order your tickets now for this extra show before they sell out again!!
