Teen girls around the nation can participate in a high-energy, inspirational 2-day weekend tour with some of the top Christian music artists, authors, and performers.
The Revolve Tour will kick off Friday in Dallas and feature such artists as Britt Nicole, Group 1 Crew, Courtney Clark Cleveland, Hawk Nelson, and newcomer, Jamie Grace. The tour will also feature speaker and author Jenna Lucado Bishop, daughter of bestselling author Max Lucado.
It is estimated that about 6,000 girls will attend the event at each of the 10 cities. This year, the main theme of the tour will be about dreams although issues about relationships, guys, friends, faith, and choices will also be addressed.
In a video message aimed at Revolve girls, speaker and author Jenna Lucado Bishop – who said she has a "deep" calling to give hope to teen girls – encouraged her young viewers to pray to God on a regular basis and talk to God about mundane things in their lives in order to build a relationship with Him.
Also speaking on the tour is author and speaker Chad Eastham, one of the few male participants in the Revolve Tour. Eastham will give expert advice on guys and relationships. Males attending the Revolve events are usually volunteers or chaperones, such as dads, uncles, and youth pastors.
The Revolve Tour was started in 2005 by the Women of Faith ministry and is produced by Thomas Nelson Live Events. Since that time, the tour has drawn an estimated 370,000 people.
"The Revolve Tour provides an opportunity for girls to look around a big arena filled with other girls and see that they're not in this life alone," said Amy Chandy, vice president of development at Thomas Nelson Live Events.
She added, "At the event we encourage girls to open up about everyday situations they face and create bigger conversations with each other. We want them to know they are loved by a big God who cares about them."
The 10-city tour will end on April 16 in Ontario, Calif.
