It’s only June, but Christian music fans can start planning their New Year’s celebration now, as the lineup for the 15th annual Winterfest was announced Friday afternoon.
Lecrae, Skillet, Crowder, and Switchfoot will help ring in 2018 on Dec. 30 and 31, along with top speakers and performers who will welcome thousands to Liberty University’s campus for the largest Christian New Year’s party on the East Coast.
Other acts include Hollyn, Zach Williams, comedian John Crist, and illusionist Justin Flom. Crowder and Hollyn both performed at last year’s Winterfest. In addition to the on-stage performances, guests can also attend Q&As with the artists.
Winterfest attendees can also take in a variety of recreational activities while on Liberty’s campus. They can go swimming, rock climbing, and ice skating, as well as skiing, tubing, and snowboarding at the Liberty Mountain Snowflex Centre.
Though it’s a time of fun, the event still has a spiritual focus. Each year, hundreds have responded to the Gospel. This year, the theme will be “Out of the Ashes,” emphasizing a focus on coming anew in your relationship with Christ.
