Students of Jubilee College of Music (JCM) at Olivet University Riverside campus attended Casting Crowns' Only Jesus Tour concert at FivePoint Amphitheatre in Irvine, CA.
The open-air concert theatre was filled with thousands of people for the event and gave the music students a higher level of worship experience with fresh live music. Worship leaders Cody Carnes, Kari Jobe, and Tauren Wells also performed at the event.
Casey Lai, an undergraduate student at JCM, shared, "Kari Jobe's praising session moved my heart to worship naturally. I felt the Holy Spirit at work."
Joy Song, a graduate student, said the lyrics of Casting Crowns' song touched her heart. "I was overwhelmed by the worship music. The location and ambiance created a relaxed feeling as we followed the singer in worship. Especially one song from the Casting Crowns band was quite energetic, and its lyrics reached into my heart. I am not alone. God is ahead of me. He will never abandon me."
Students were inspired and filled with joy after the concert. They look forward to being trained as professional worship leaders in JCM.
