Can God be Cool?

The Camrose Booster
April 4, 2006



This weekend's Wild Rose Celebration will feature a Saturday night program geared specifically toward the younger generation.  Organizers are inviting the teenagers and young adults of Camrose to leave their parents at home, grab a few friends and come out to hear Christian rock group Tree63 blast the roof off the Leduc Black Gold Centre.

"A lot of young people out there don't think that God can be 'cool'," says area youth pastor Curtis Neal, a member of the Wild Rose Celebration committee.  "The fact is that God can rock your world in ways you'll never imagine.  Letting Him touch your life is the wildest ride you'll ever experience!"

Neal says the organizing committee wanted to offer something specially tailored to youth, starting at 7:00p.m., so the message of faith could be communicated in a way that's meaningful and relevant to this critical age group.

Saturday night's band, Tree63, started in Durban, South Africa, as an alternative Christian rock group. They quickly soared to success.  The Answer To The Question is Tree63's most successful album to date, with Blessed Be Your Name taking the #1 Christian song on the 2004 Billboard charts.  Their most recent release, Worship Volume 1: I Stand For You, is already a hit with fans and critics alike.

Following Tree63's performance, 30 year-old Will Graham, grandson of renowned evangelist Billy Graham, will share a dynamic message on how God can transform your life through faith in Him.

"We are praying for a ton of kids to come to this event on Saturday night," says Neal.  "The music will be phenomenal and God is going to touch people.  It's going to be really fun."

The Wild Rose Celebration is an event of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association of Canada.  From April 7 to 9, 2006, the Black Gold Centre in Leduc will play host to Christian musical artists; Rebecca St. James, Tree63 and Alberta's own Kim Haller, along with Will Graham, grandson of evangelist Billy Graham.
