No, LifeLight is a non-profit 501c3 ministry which focuses on reaching those seeking the hope and love of Jesus Christ through contemporary Christian media including; Festivals, Missions, & Outreach events. In addition to evangelism, our goal is to bring the body of Christ together.
Absolutely not. We are partners with local churches and ministries and are an extension of the church. LifeLight exists to help bring the body of Christ together to reach outside the walls. Our non-denominational organization is made up of many different churches and only exists because of the local church.
No; however, one of our main goals is to reach our youth. While it is clear that our youth are in trouble and God is using LifeLight Festival as a means to reach out, it is about much more. We bring generations together. This festival (crusade evangelism at its best) has something for everyone, regardless of age. The message of the gospel never changes and it is presented in a real and relevant way for all.
God laid it upon our hearts to make this festival FREE, affordable to everyone. Statistics show nearly 90,000 unchurched people live in Sioux Falls alone. There is a great need for evangelism and our desire is to plug people back into the local church. We don't feel cost should be a stumbling block to attract these people.
Yes, yes!! We believe the Lord deserves excellence. Top-quality Christian musicians and speakers are part of our festival, much like a Graham Crusade or Palau Festival. All LifeLight events promise to be superior in quality.
LifeLight selects artists and speakers on the following basis: prayer, ministry of the artist, quality of music, style of music, availability, booking requirements, etc. We try to offer a variety of styles. Sometimes, artists are not available for the dates we have open. Artist’s fees range widely and some artists are more difficult to schedule because of their sound and staging requirements. Unfortunately, the more popular the artist the more expensive they are--one challenge in a FREE event. We continue to trust that God will provide through his people and churches the necessary resources so that we can continue to offer popular artists with powerful messages.
LifeLight is funded because of the generosity of its supporters. LifeLight is a non-profit 501c(3) faith-based ministry. We are funded through church and individual donations, offerings, corporate sponsors, fund-raising, ticketed events, and program advertising.
We couldn't have LifeLight Festival without our dedicated volunteers! Each year hundreds of people give of their time and volunteer in one or more areas. As the festival grows, so does our needs for more volunteers.
Admission is FREE! Offerings will be taken at the LifeLight Festival. Your donations are truly appreciated; we depend on your support to continue this mission. LifeLight Communications is a non-profit 501(c)(3) ministry. For camping information, registration, and prices click here.
