The following is a news release from the Billy Graham Evangelical Association.
IDAHO FALLS – About 2,400 people attended the Idaho Falls Look Up Tour with Will Graham Saturday at the Mountain American Center. The opening day of the weekend-long event featured two separate outreaches — KidzFest for children, and Student Night for teens and young people.
Both events included messages from Will Graham, and free concerts from Rend Collective, a Christian folk rock worship band originating from Northern Ireland. The Dove Award-nominated group is well known for their unique sound and their hit songs, including Build Your Kingdom Here and My Lighthouse.
“Each person here is hand-made in the image of God. That is how much God loves you. You were created to have a relationship with Him,” said Graham on Saturday night, speaking from John 3. “You can only fulfill your purpose when you surrender your life into God’s hands.”
Between the two events, more than 350 people responded to the invitation to make a commitment to Jesus.
Sunday’s program begins at 5 p.m. at the Mountain America Center, and will feature music by Latin worship leader Christine D’Clario and Grammy-nominated singer/songwriter David Crowder.
