Jesus Culture Band tour dates
The Jesus Culture Band -- sometimes called Jesus Culture Music, or just Jesus Culture -- is the official band of the Jesus Culture Ministry. Formed in 2002, this evangelical Christian band performs a mix of original and cover worship songs for enthusiastic crowds. Jesus Culture Band tickets offer admission to a concert that often features ecstatic, charismatic worship experiences.
Jesus Culture Band background
The 1990s saw a dramatic increase in vibrant, youth-oriented Christian evangelism. In 1999, one group took its inspiration from surrounding evangelical Christian culture and what they perceived as a need for the Gospel in the world around them. Banning Liebscher, the youth pastor of Bethel Church In Redding, California, coordinated the first Jesus Culture conference with the help of his youth group.
The Jesus Culture Ministry swiftly gained attention as a high-energy rallying point for enthusiastic young evangelicals. Tony Cummings, music editor of Cross Rhythms, hailed it as "one of the most significant Christian movements in post-war America". Its conferences focused on helping young people experience the love of Christ through vivid worship experiences, and serving their churches.
Music is key to the Jesus Culture Ministry's services. The Jesus Culture Band, headed by youth pastor and singer-songwriter Kim Walker-Smith, have provided music for the Jesus Culture Ministry's events for a very long time. The band released its first CD, Undone, in 2002, and in 2006 they released Everything on Jesus Culture Ministry's official record label, Jesus Culture Music.
The Jesus Culture Band and its members (including Melissa How and guitarist Chris Quilala) release several albums every year. These are usually live recordings of their concerts, at both Jesus Culture events and other venues.

Their 2014 release, Unstoppable Love, met with similar widespread attention, including some from Worship Leader magazine.
