On the heels of a successful Main Street Live summer concert series, the music will continue on the West Lawn of Security Federal this Friday night. A youth rally for the unity of the community will be held from 7-9 p.m.
The event is being called “Resolution of a Revolution” by organizer Steve Madison.
“A resolution is something you are determine to do,” said Madison. “A revolution is a determination to take back. We have resolved to bring our youth back to the cause of Christ.”
Organizers hope to offer a positive influence in the community for the youth that might be struggling physically, emotionally or spiritually.
“What we are trying to accomplish is to bring churches and the community together to show support for our youth in the midst of all the things they face,” said Madison. “In the absence of positive influences, they find their own influences. Sometimes, those are not positive.”
After a brief presentation by Madison, the band “Right Here Redemption” will be offering musical entertainment. RHR uses music ministry to celebrate salvation, create an environment of worship, and see people dedicate their lives to Christ.
Front man and guitarist Chad Gentry and drummer Kevin Youngblood bring both a passion for evangelism and a desire to craft the type of divinely inspired songs that have been absent from the Christian music industry for the past several years. Influences come from bands such as Lifehouse and Chris Tomlin.
Resolution of a Revolution is open to young and old, interdenominational in nature, and free of charge.
“I’m hoping to make this an annual event as long as it goes well,” said Madison. “There are a lot of eyes on it. We are working with McMinnville Police Department to make this a safe event, among other things. Come out and support our efforts.”
Along with prizes to be given out to the youth present, food and beverage vendors will be on hand. Alcoholic beverages are prohibited. Smoking is not allowed in the crowd.
The event will be free due to sponsorship by McMinnville Electric, Security Federal, Everett’s Automotive, Healing Hands Therapeutic Massage, True Sound Productions, NAPA Auto Parts, The Shop, and local churches.
