UPDATE More than 7,500 spectators celebrated the New Year and hundreds made first-time decisions or recommitted their lives to Jesus Christ at the 13th annual Winterfest, held Tuesday and Wednesday at Liberty University. See the Liberty News story for a photo gallery and all the details. 

Winterfest is the largest Christian New Year's party on the East Coast. From Dec. 30-31, guests will jam with some of the top artists in Christian music, hear from challenging speakers and special guests, and enjoy Liberty's recreational offerings. The event ends with a spectacular countdown to 2015, complete with confetti and balloons. (Check out the full schedule.)

Light up the stage

This year’s lineup of performers includes Lecrae, the first solo Christian artist to debut atop both the Billboard 200 and the Gospel Albums charts in the same week. (Lecrae spoke at Liberty’s Convocation in 2013.) The Grammy-Award winning rapper will close out the first night of concerts, which also includes worship artist Kari Jobe and the pop duo for King & Country.

One final panel of artists will take the stage on Dec. 31 before the countdown begins. The Newsboys, led by Liberty alumnus Michael Tait, will entertain audiences with pop-rock worship before Skillet closes out the year with an explosive performance.

During the day, guests are invited to Q&A sessions with some of the artists.

Ignite faith

Winterfest guests can look forward to a spiritually enriching atmosphere. They will interact with other believers and be encouraged by Christian speakers, including  actor/producer Kirk Cameron, John Luke Robertson of “Duck Dynasty,” and popular author/speaker David Nasser, Liberty’s senior vice president for spiritual development. 

Explore Liberty

Visitors can explore Liberty’s campus and choose from a variety of fun recreational activities. They can hit the slopes at Liberty Mountain Snowflex Centre, ice skate at the LaHaye Ice Center, or roll through the Liberty Mountain Skate Park. At the expanded LaHaye Student Union, guests can test their limits on a new 40-foot rock climbing wall, take a dip in the pool, or play a variety of indoor sports, including basketball, soccer, and volleyball.
