Sharing Hope to the Hopeless
“Though music be a universal language, it is spoken with all sorts of accents.”
George Bernard Shaw (1890)
The No Wake Zone concert is a ministry event. Music is the vehicle to minister hope, healing and encouragement to individuals and families who are “drowning in the wake.” Addiction is like the aftermath of a wake. It wreaks havoc in a person’s life and their loved ones.
Pastor John Lippard shares his testimony through music of hope and healing through Jesus Christ. According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse* “addiction is an illness, just as heart disease and cancer are illnesses. An addiction is not a weakness. It does not mean someone is a bad person. People from all backgrounds can get an addiction. It doesn’t matter if you are rich or poor. It doesn’t matter where you live. It doesn’t matter if you went to college or not. An addiction can happen to anyone and at any age.” And just like any disease or illness there is hope for healing, through Jesus Christ.
At every concert Ministry Time will be a main focus and training before and after the concert for the ministry volunteers will be provided. Local and National Resources for those seeking help will be available and to the local church hosting the concert.
