It's finally time! We've been praying about this decision for almost two years now and we can't wait any longer to tell you about it! So let's get right to it.
Usually when festivals have a big announcement like this it has to do with a major headliner, but this is bigger than that! What can be bigger than an awesome headliner you ask? Here it is: The big announcement is...drum roll please...our ticket prices!
Before you close this screen thinking I've greatly exaggerated the magnitude of this announcement, hear me out! It really is a big deal! You see, the reason Connect Festival's ticket prices are our big announcement is because they will be $0! Yes, you read that right, zero dollars! Tickets will be available for the next Connect Festival for free!
Hopefully you're as excited about this as we are! I bet some of you, however, are confused at why and how we are doing this. It's a huge leap of faith for us, but we've been praying about this for almost two years and feel this is the direction God is calling us in for the future of the festival. So here's a quick explanation of why and how we are making Connect Festival free:
Why?: Over the four years we have held Connect Festival we have seen God do some amazing things in the lives of those who attended. Truthfully, seeing this and hearing all the stories in the weeks following each festival is what keeps us going. Each year we ask you, the church of New England, to use the festival as a way to reach the unsaved in your lives by inviting those who may not accept an invitation to a Sunday morning church service hoping that an invitation to a music festival would be a little less intimidating. It's worked! People have come and have seen God in a new and exciting way! However, there will always be barriers in this world that will keep people from coming to an event like this. So we wanted to remove as many of those barriers as we could and the biggest barrier we felt was the cost of the admission ticket. So by removing that barrier we hope to see many more lives changed at the festival each year.
How?: We are still plan on putting on the same quality festival with the same quality artists and speakers, the same professional production, and the same fun family activities. So it's going to take a lot of hard work, fundraising, and generous sponsors and supporters to made this happen. Our prayer is that the church (you) of New England sees Connect Festival as a major evangelical event and will support it with prayer and giving. We will be holding fundraising events each month to help raise the necessary funds to put on the event.
Where and When?: The location and date of the next Connect Festival will be announced soon so stay tuned! Until then, please keep this new vision for the festival in prayer. We will say that the festival will be held in the same region of south eastern New England. This is where the festival started and we feel this is still our mission field.
