Essential Worship's Vertical Church Band and Premier Productions have partnered to announce the upcoming dates for their Vertical Nights Tour. Kicking off March 8 in South Bend, Indiana, the tour is scheduled to hit 14 markets across the U.S. Tickets are on sale now HERE.
The tour will visit The Chapel at CrossPoint in Buffalo on Friday, March 10.
At each tour stop, concertgoers will get to enjoy a message from Pastor James MacDonald of Harvest Bible Chapel, along with music from Vertical Church Band and special guest and worship artist/songwriter Paul Baloche. Other special guests scheduled to appear on various dates throughout the tour (but not in Buffalo) are Meredith Andrews, Jason Ingram of one sonic society.
Along with the music and message, what also makes this tour unique is that at each stop a "Worship Workshop" will be offered. The workshop will encompass multiple afternoon seminars and is designed to help worship leaders grow in serving their local churches, with instruction on servant leadership, mentorship, servant-heart worship leading, a band workshop about instrumentation, arrangements, song selections for their worship team, and a conversational Q&A session with the members of Vertical Church Band. The workshop will be facilitated by Baloche and select members of the Vertical Church Band.
"Leading a night of worship and the word, while also getting to minister to worship leaders with our workshops, is the center of what Vertical Church Band is all about," said Andi Rozier, pastor of worship at Harvest Bible Chapel. "We cannot wait to get on the road and visit these amazing cities and meet some amazing people along the way."
Vertical Church Band includes worship leaders Rozier, Jake France, Lauren Smith, Tara Stutes, Andrews and Jon Guerra who lead each week in one of seven campuses with 13,000 people in attendance across Chicago's Harvest Bible Chapel. Sung in thousands of churches weekly, some of their most popular songs include "Open Up The Heavens," "Spirit Of The Living God," "Lamb Of God," "Worthy Worthy" and "Found In You." Their latest release, 2016's "Frontiers," includes the songs "Exalted Over All" and "This We Know."
