‘We’ve been taking a small group of young people to Lift events for the past 18 months. At each of these events, some of the young people have responded to a clear and relevant message that the band have put across. At the last one, two of our youngest group members responded to the gospel message. One of them said, “I loved the audience interaction. It inspired me to go to the next level of faith. I was amazed that so many young people my age were there and wanted to get closer to God.’
