Franklin Fellowship Church, located at 308 Jordan Road in Franklin, will launch its fall youth program with an “up close & personal” free “Back to School Of Rock Concert” on Wednesday, September 8, 2004 at 6:30 PM.
The concert will feature all-girl rock band sensation, BarlowGirl, who currently enjoy the #1 spot on the national Christian rock charts with their hit song, “Never Alone.” Also featured will be multiple Dove-nominated worship artist Todd Agnew, whose songs “Grace Like Rain” and “This Fragile Breath” were #1 songs on the Christian charts earlier this year. Opening the concert will be “Lenny,” a band of local high-school rock musicians who previously enjoyed national prominence as “Squirt.”
Vince Wilcox, co-owner of VanLiere-Wilcox management and volunteer youth leader at Franklin Fellowship Church, comments, “Our company works closely with Todd and BarlowGirl, and they are kind enough to help us draw attention to the fact that every teenager can benefit from plugging into a youth program‹not only for the support and friendship they can enjoy, but for the support and friendship they can offer their peers. ŒBack to school¹ can also mean Œback to church,¹ since growing spiritually is certainly as important as growing mentally and physically.”
Although the event is free, attendance will be limited to those who have concert passes, since the venue only holds 200 people. Students from Franklin Fellowship Church will be giving away passes for the event, and a limited number of tickets will be available through the event hotline at 615-791-4464 ext. 104. The largest single source of tickets is Christian Hit Radio WAY-FM, who will be awarding 88.7 tickets through an exclusive online contest at www.wayfm.com during the week of August 23rd.
The concert will be held at Franklin Fellowship Church, which is located at 308 Jordan Road, adjacent to the corner of Mack Hatcher and Liberty Pike in Franklin. The church, pastored by Dr. Tom Moucka, considers its mission “to prepare people to serve Christ and his Kingdom through whole family ministry, persistent prayer, and vital relationships.”
