Passion City Church pastor Louie Giglio will be a guest speaker at Winter Jam 2020 and says, like the popular tour, his mission is to share Jesus with all the world regardless of age, economic status or standing in the church.
The Winter Jam Tour Spectacular is known for bringing Christian music’s biggest names on tour together to inspire families all across the country. The popular first-quarter tour will kick off a new decade in 2020 with award-winning singer/songwriter Crowder as the headliner.
Heading to 42 cities around the United States, Winter Jam, known for it’s “no ticket required”/$15 donation at the door, will have acclaimed pastor, author, speaker and Passion Movement founder Louie Giglio on selected dates. Also in the lineup is rapper Andy Mineo, pop group Building 429, the rock band RED, singer/songwriter Austin French and Winter Jam creators and tour hosts NewSong, among others.
The following is an edited transcript of Giglio’s interview with The Christian Post where he shares about the upcoming tour, his relationship with Crowder, and his commitment to share the Gospel of Jesus with all.
Christian Post: What are you looking forward to most about being a part of Winter Jam 2020?
Giglio: I just think being a part of it is pretty great. I don’t know how I made it this far in life without being a part of Winter Jam. So I’m excited, one of the things I think I’m excited about the most is the family nature of it because Crowder has done Winter Jam before, so we’ve been out, and I popped in and out with him. But at the same time, just hearing him talk about the devotion, the way the team becomes a big family, and how all the different artists and speakers really do feel like a brotherhood and sisterhood at the end of the run. I think a longer tour like this gives you that opportunity to really build relationships and build friendships and that bleeds into the night. There are all these amazing artists there, going from city to city week after week, month after month, and we’re coming as a “we.” You feel that in the night, we really are all pulling for each other, rooting for each other, cheering for each other, believing for each other.
And the impact, the tens of thousands of faces that are there night after night, after night after night, is pretty extraordinary and you think that we get to invest in and serve all those different lives, it’s really humbling.
CP: Winter Jam always features a diverse group of artists and now Crowder is headlining the tour, tell us about your relationship with David Crowder synonymously known as Crowder?
Giglio: I love David because he is an original, he really is truly, in my opinion, one of a kind in the worship world. I’ve seen that from his earliest days as a college student at Baylor, we were around at the same time back in those days. I was leading a ministry, he was in school there. Shelly and I were a part of their very first album, not from a label side like we are now but just as personal supporters of helping them make their very first independent record. From that moment to this moment, the two things that are true about David is that he blazing a trail.
