When I was 16 years old I went to Creation ’96. It was held at Hershey Park in Hershey, PA that year. It was an awesome week of music, speakers, fun and fellowship. I was challenged by the speakers I heard, and I signed up to sponsor a Compassion child on that trip.
I know some folks criticize events like this, saying that the Christian walk isn’t about “mountaintop experiences” but when you’re a teen and facing peer pressure, it’s a real encouragement to see thousands of other teens who are seeking God.
So, here’s a list of Christian music festivals coming up this summer:
Sonshine Festival – July 13-16
