“We are expecting thousands of people from all over the nation,” explains Darrin Hillis, of Team One
Productions. “We have strived to shape an event that embraces a multitude of people, cultures, and ages. We would like this event to be a place where God can show off the colors and diversity of His people and be glorified by the unity of our worship of Him…the One True God.”
Over the four days in June there will be gathered
at Shelby Farms a richness of resources unseen before in Memphis. Over 80 musical acts will perform on six stages. Musical styles will range from the extremely popular rap-core group P.O.D. to the lively gospel of John P Kee to the esoteric lyrical Celtic band Iona to reggae, to world beat, to hip-hop to great rock and simple folk singer songwriters.
Along with this incredible collection of music are the even more impressive thirty, multi-session, workshops and seminars
conducted by men and women of national and international stature. Gathered to share and inspire are such respected leaders as George Verwer of Operation Mobilization, John Perkins of Voice of Calvary Ministries, Clive Calver of World Relief, Marilyn Laszlo of Wycliffe Bible Translators.
But as the TV infomercial says, “That’s not all!” Art, from the visual arts to the spoken word, will also be a strong and prominent
presence at One Festival. A “by invitation only” Art Gallery coordinated by Lee Benson of Union University will exhibit the work
of national artists, an Artist Market offers artists a chance to display their work in whatever medium they work in and make it
available to the public, a Spoken Word component will feature poetry reading, story telling, improv theater, and spoken word
Wycliffe Bible Translators will recreate a south Asian village along with international ethnic musical instrument demonstrations,
drum circles, and a creative children’s program all add to the already warm and eclectic spirit of One Festival. Those who desire a
physical challenge will enjoy the One Xtreme Games featuring the John Payne Classic Mountain Bike Race, Xtreme Volleyball
Tournament, a 5K Cross Country Race, and skate board demonstrations by the Manna Skateboard Team.
Under girding all this is a spirit of worship. “Worship will not be a single production, but rather a heart attitude expressed in
multiple formats and events across the grounds,” explains Henry Huang of Team One Productions. “Our hope is that One Festival,
with all it’s wonderful resources, will bring glory to God and make His heart for missions and reconciliation across all lines… known.”
