"Then the eleven disciples went to Galilee, to the mountain where Jesus had told them to go. When they saw him, they worshiped him; but some doubted. Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” Matthew 28:16-20
It's all about the Gospel!
As believers, we have been instructed by Jesus himself to spread the gospel. Fuse Ministries has utilized large event evangelism to accomplish this since 2009 with events increasing in size to current day Connect Festival which attracts an audience of over 3,000 people from all over the Northeast. These large evangelistic events utilize music from top names in Contemporary Christian Music, testimony from artists and speakers throughout the day, a Gospel message and a concert/worship at the close of the evening.
We can't do this on our own however. Like most large scale evangelical opportunities, we need the support of the local church to pull off these events in our communities. That is why we're asking churches to unite with us in this amazing opportunity we have to spread the love and hope of Jesus in a big way!
Who We Are:
Fuse Ministries is a New England based outreach ministry whose mission is to share the gospel of Jesus Christ through sung and spoken word. For over 15 years, Fuse has been providing outreach events across the Northeast with artists and speakers who have traveled the world proclaiming the Gospel. Fuse is a 501c3 non-profit organization devoted to reaching the lost with the promise and hope that can only be found in Jesus!
What we need to succeed?
Fuse is excited about the revival of music ministries throughout our region and nation. We need area churches and Christ-based organizations to partner with us and help bring more free or low-cost outreach events to New England. We are looking for partners who can become true partners and provide a sustainable monthly donation. 100% of these donations will provide outreach opportunities within our area with opportunities for to reach out to those who may not be comfortable coming to church. Why not bring the church to them?
How can you help?
Monthly Donations: You church and/or members of your congregation can provide tax-deductible contributions through our website or by mail.
Amzaon Smile: For your members who use Amazon for shopping, they can search Amazon Smile and select donations to go to Fuse Ministries with every purchase.
CCM Shout Out: A "Cameo"-like service that allows you to request customized "shout out" videos from your favorite Christian artist. A great way to encourage others by helping the ministries of these artists and Fuse.
What if all the church leaders & their congregations banded together in unity under Christ?
Can you imagine what would be possible if we all joined together in prayer, partnership, and proclamation to share the extraordinary love & hope we share in Jesus?
How many lives could we impact? How would our communities change?
What happens after we fill out the online form?You'll receive an email from one of the Fuse Ministries board members as an introduction so you can ask any additional questions you might have. Filling out the form does not obligate you to host any events, but you'll be added to a list of willing churches to be contacted when a concert opportunity comes up that would fit in terms of location (tour routing) and event (seating capacity, production required, etc.). When an event is being planned you'll receive an email with the details of the event and you can respond whether you church is willing and available to host. If not, you can pass and wait for the next event opportunity.
Why should we host concerts at our church?Hosting concerts at your church is a great way to bring new people into your building. It's also a great way for your members to invite someone that doesn't attend church to an event where they'll hear about Jesus in a new and exciting way. We're all about spreading the love & hope of Jesus and this is just one more way that you can do so.
What size venues are you looking for?Whether you seat 200 or 2,000+ we need you! Seating capacity needs differ based on the artist and event.
Does it cost anything to host a concert?No! There is usually no cost to the host church. Fuse Ministries takes care of all the costs and financial risks associated with producing the event including artist honorarium and travel expenses, etc. If your church is able to provide meals, hotel rooms, or help with some of the ancillary expenses it's a HUGE blessing, but usually not required. Occasionally, we do ask churches to help us share in these expenses so we can put on the event, but that is always clear before you decide if you would like to host or not. No pressure at all from us! We're a ministry too with one goal: to bring people to Jesus!
Will you need to use our sound system and/or lighting?It depends on the event or tour. Many tours travel with their own production equipment and just need to tie into the building's power supply. Other artists only travel with their instruments and require the use of the church's sound system. This is all know in advance so you'll know before you decide if an event is the right fit for your building.
Are concerts free or ticketed to attend?It depends on the event. Fuse Ministries likes to produce as many of our events as we can as free-admission outreach events in order to reach as many people as possible. However, sometimes the event expenses require us to charge for tickets. When we are forced to charge for tickets our goal is to just cover expenses and in the event there are left over funds (a "profit") after all expenses are paid, the extra money is reinvested into our free-admission outreach events. Fuse Ministries is a 501c3 non-profit ministry and is run by volunteers. So no one is profiting from these events. It's all about sharing Jesus!
Do we get to choose the artists we host?Absolutely! When you fill out the form on this page you'll be entered onto a list of churches that we contact when we have artists coming to your area. You get to decide which artists you agree to host!
