Minneapolis-based Evangelist Nick Hall will share the Gospel message during the event. Nick speaks to young people around the world through his ministry Pulse. His biblical messages encourage people to reset every area of their lives to Jesus.
This year's lineup includes Grammy-award and 23-time Dove-award winning artist Chris Tomlin, Dove-award winning band Casting Crowns, Christian hip-hop artist Lecrae and Northern Irish folk-rock Christian group Rend Collective. These artists and more will share their unique styles of Christian music.
"It's an incredible honor to be part of this impactful community event for the third time! Returning to this stage holds a special place in our hearts. We look forward to creating more moments and connecting with this community in life-changing, Kingdom-minded ways," said Mark Hall from Casting Crowns
"We couldn't be more excited about this fantastic lineup of artists, along with other bands who will perform," said Nick Hall. Their performances, along with the Gospel message, will help share the love and hope of Jesus with more people than ever.
In the last decade, Amplify has drawn tens of thousands for the sole purpose of exposing as many people as possible to the Gospel message of Jesus Christ. The festival leaders expect high attendance again this year.
