Winterfest Kicks off 2019 Season

Church of God Youth and Discipleship is once again hosting the popular Winterfest weekend beginning at the end of this month.

Frontier Winterfest, to be held in Arlington, Texas, is set for January 25-27. It will be the first of 13 locations in the United States, taking place between the end of January and the last weekend in March.

Winterfest began in the early 1980s as a weekend retreat for four Church of God youth groups in Tennessee. Since then the phenomenon has grown to annually attract more than 40,000 young people stateside and 20,000 overseas. The agenda generally consists of a Friday night opening concert and message, Saturday night concert and message and Sunday morning service. During the day Saturday is usually reserved for local attractions. Some of the most well-known artists in Christian contemporary music circles have been guests at Winterfest through the years. Guest speakers have included some of the most cutting-edge leaders who have witnessed thousands of conversions and re-commitments.

While the musical guests will vary by locations, the female duo Kaylee and Erica will perform at almost every venue. Other musical guests include Planetshakers, Eddie James, Influencers Worship, Citylife U Worship and People and Songs. Some of the scheduled speakers include Reggie Dabbs, John Gray, Preston Centuolo, Russell and Sam Evans, Jim Rayley and Eric Petree.
