Rehearse Hope – Greenville, IL

Hosted by Greenville College, with production provided by faculty and students in the Commercial Music and Audio Engineering programs, Rehearse Hope addressed issues of brokenness, hope and healing through the beauty of words and music. The event also promoted the significance of prison ministry and raised funds – through the donation of tickets – for a prison concert for the women at Greenville Federal Correctional Institution.

My first prison concert experience two years ago left me “gloriously ruined” (Kay Warren) for traditional music events, but our recent visit with the women at Greenville FCI (Greenville, IL) the following evening left me a bit speechless … I don’t mean to sound so dramatic, but I think a few of us departed the facility a bit stunned at how God showed up.
