Ministry Areas

At LifeLight Communications, we do ministry year round. During the festival, we need extra hands and hearts to help! We offer a children's area so even the youngest in the crowd can have a great time. And we’re privileged to see many people find salvation through Jesus at the festival, and we need prayer warriors to come alongside them. Several times during the weekend, we need servant hearted people to hand out ministry materials to those seeking Christ, and for those mission minded people, we host a missions area where people can learn more about what we do the other 362 days of each year. If you have a heart for ministry, this area is for you.
