Crowder Draws a Huge Crowd at Spring Festival in Murfreesboro

by Rich and Laura Lynch

Christian music superstar David Crowder and his band Crowder made a tour stop on Saturday, April 13, 2024 to play the heavily attended Spring Festival hosted by World Outreach Church. The weather couldn't have been more perfect even if world events were on everyone's mind in the midst of all the fun and excitement in Murfreesboro.

David Crowder fronted a fine large band in Murfreesboro.

Pastor Allen Jackson greeted the large gathering seated on lawn chairs for as far as the eyes could see with apologies for possibly being a little jet lagged as he had only just returned home from a trip to Israel. Then he announced that the tiny Jewish nation had come under attack in the past few hours from an Iranian ariel bombardment. Rather than dampen the spirit of the event - for the believers in attendance this news just made the evening prayer service feel all that more Biblical in nature.

Allen's message focused on the movement of God while providing concrete advice on how listeners can overcome fear through the knowledge of understanding that God is always there with them in all circumstances.

What a crowd for Crowder at the World Outreach Church Spring Festival.

Crowder - before and after Allen's sermon brought the goods and proved just why he was a favorite act with top billing on this year's Winter Jam that hit many markets across the country earlier in the year especially as he kicked off his prayer portion of the night with a rockin' cover of the "I Saw the Light" by Hank Williams .

Crowder mixed in many "Resurrection" and the "Holy Ghost" songs early in his set that also featured a take on his latest single, "Grave Robber" that had listeners up and on their feet while "Run Devil Run" kept the energy flowing. For "Red Letters", Crowder took a seat behind the keys to tell the story of how his grandmother helped alert him to the words spoken by Jesus in the Bible.

Pastor Allen Jackson delivered a powerful sermon; Crowder considers the "Red Letters".

But, Crowder wasn't the only family-friendly attraction that drew folks to the outdoor festival with roots in the popular services the church hosted throughout the pandemic. The night out also includes Hot Air Ballons, opportunities for water baptism, activities for children, food trucks and more where everyone was invited to bring their friends and favorite outdoor chairs or blankets.

This year's lineup includes Crowder who joins Shane & Shane, Matt Maher and Matthew West as featured performers in April. Past acts that have played at the facility include We The Kingdom, Anne Wilson and For King + Country. So, you can see how the World Outreach Church are really drawing the cream of the crop of Contemporary Christian Music - thus, making their large parcel of turf in Rutherford Country some really hallowed and blessed ground in Mid-Tenn.

Pray for Israel as the nation was attacked by foes just hours before the concert and worship service began.
