Big Daddy Weave is gearing up to head back out on tour just one month after a life-threatening infection led to bassist Jason Weaver having an emergency double amputation.
The band had quite the scare when Jason had to undergo surgery to remove both of his feet last month. Through it all the band stayed hopeful and now that Jason is home recovering, the guys have decided to head back out on the road for the fourth edition of their Beautiful Offerings Tour.
Hitting venues across the country, the tour is set to kick off Aug. 18 in Watertown, South Dakota, featuring Plumb and breakout artist We Are Messengers. The 50-city tour, sponsored by World Vision, will conclude Nov. 20 in Charlotte, North Carolina. more >>

WASHINGTON – Multi-Dove award nominee Christine D'Clario hit the stage last Saturday representing the Latino community at Together 2016, and said she believes everyone can see past racial differences if they focus on Jesus.
D'Clario is of Italian, German, Irish, Puerto Rican, and Dominican descent. She believes her multi-ethnic background gives her a wide perspective and helps her understand the racial conflicts currently happening in America.
"I know what it is to be in a blended community and I know what it is to be marginalized for not fitting in perfectly with one area or the other. But what I've learned from that is to find the commonalities and to try and focus on what unites us more," D'Clario told The Christian Post during a Q&A session. more >>
While there are times when Justin Bieber says he doubts God, it's at those moments when he see's God moving in the world.

Kehila News Israel, an information portal of the Messianic community in Israel, wrote a detailed analysis on "Tomorrowland," noting that the festival synthesizes musical performances with "fairy tale" stories apparently made to promote the "Luciferian, Wiccan and Hindu religion." more >>
WASHINGTON — Contemporary Christian singer Lauren Daigle urged millennials to combat fear and hatred with love in a message at Together 2016 at the National Mall on Saturday, and hopes they left feeling empowered to seek God's wisdom wherever their mission field is: at school, work and in their communities.
"The word empower is something that kept coming up in my heart," Daigle told The Christian Post during a Q&A on Saturday. "If we show people that fear isn't actually the place that we have to surrender to, fear isn't actually the thing that we have to answer to, but instead it's going in and loving people."
"It's going into the places that are dangerous and saying, 'OK God, I'm going to partner with you in this mission to go after that person who can potentially harm me.' Or to go after the homeless and say, 'I'm going to love you,'" Daigle shared. more >>
