Chris Tomlin @ Jacksonville Veterans Memorial Arena
Apr 20 @ 7:00 pm
Chris Tomlin @ Jacksonville Veterans Memorial Arena | Jacksonville | Florida | United States
GRAMMY® winner Chris Tomlin continues to bring the church together in unity and prayer with his 2018 Worship Night In America (WNIA) tour, kicking off April 5, 2018. Special guests include Kim Walker Smith of Jesus Culture, Matt Maher, Christine D’Clario, Tauren Wells, and Pat Barrett. The tour will hit 24 markets across the U.S. including Jacksonville on April 20, 2018!

“It is powerful when all streams of the church come together in an act of unity to worship and pray…that’s the heart behind 2018’s ‘WNIA Tour.’ It’s a picture of God’s kingdom together, and the sound of thousands and thousands of voices pouring out His praise,” says Tomlin. “I pray these nights are filled with revival and restoration as we all join together proclaiming one name. As the scriptures say, ‘Lord I have heard of Your fame, I stand in awe of Your deeds… renew them in our day.’”

Chris Tomlin’s 2018 “WNIA Tour” follows his 2017 “WNIA Tour” which made 24 stops in arenas with sellouts across the country, including Nashville, where Tomlin made history as the largest ticketed Christian concert at Bridgestone Arena to date. This feat came amidst a massive year for Tomlin, when just last fall, Tomlin became the first Christian artist to receive the SoundExchange Digital Radio Award, recognizing more than 1 billion digital radio plays. Justin Timberlake, Garth Brooks and Pitbull are the only other artists to have received this award. Following this success, Tomlin filled the iconic Red Rocks Amphitheatre for back-to-back nights this past September as the first ever CCM artist to play the historic venue two nights in a row.

“I’m really excited to be joining Chris Tomlin on 2018’s ‘WNIA Tour.’ When I’ve been a part of it in the past, I’ve loved all of the unity among all of the different churches represented. It’s a really powerful night of worship – and so much fun!” – Kim Walker Smith of Jesus Culture

“I’m so grateful for Chris’ friendship and leadership in bringing together worship leaders from all across a diverse body of Christ. More than ever, we need opportunities as the people of God to come together in the midst of division and be unified in our celebration of the grace and mercy of a God revealed in Jesus.” – Matt Maher

“I deeply love when the people of God unite for His cause. The foreshadow of every great move of God is unity and unanimity in heart and spirit. The 2018 ‘WNIA Tour’ is just that, the joining together of souls that are hungry for a great move of God in our nation. I am very humbled and excited to be a part of, more than a tour, a united front that carries the banner of God’s love — breaking the barriers of language, culture or race — through worship for our nation and generation.” – Christine D’Clario

“The idea of the whole church gathering together in unity, focused solely on worshipping the one true God, proclaiming the name of Jesus as Lord, Savior, Healer, King, is both awe inspiring and powerful. 2018 ‘WNIA Tour’ is one of the closest manifestations of this idea — and ideal — that I’ve experienced. I’m excited to watch Him move in the people each night, but to also see the life- and culture-change that will take place through those same people in the days and weeks afterward.” – Tauren Wells

“What I’m looking forward to the most is not only the incredible night we will have together as we gather to worship in each city, but the opportunity for the impact of these nights to reach far beyond the event itself. Incredible things happen when people come together in unity to lift up the name of Jesus and I am so excited and honored to be apart of it.” – Pat Barrett

Tickets for the “Worship Night In America” tour will be available at christomlin.com starting Nov 17 at 10am local time. As a SPECIAL OFFER to early ticket-buyers, a 20% promo code will be active Friday, 10am local time through Monday (11/20), 11:59pm local time using code “INSIDER.”

ABOUT THIS PRODUCTION

Fifteen-year-old Christopher has an extraordinary brain; he is exceptionally intelligent but ill-equipped to interpret everyday life. When he falls under suspicion for killing his neighbor’s dog, he sets out to identify the true culprit, which leads to an earth-shattering discovery and a journey that will change his life forever. Called “one of the most fully immersive shows ever to wallop Broadway” by The New York Times, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time is a record-breaking theatrical phenomenon that simply must not be missed.

North Florida Super and Spring Weekend (Spartan Race) @ Diamond D Ranch
Apr 28 @ 7:30 am

Saturday, April 28th – Super

8+ miles

24-29 Obstacles

There’s nothing mediocre about this middle distance race. The Spartan Super offers the ideal blend between distance and speed. Offering racers a true athletic test. If you consider yourself a more seasoned athlete determined to push beyond excuses, you just might have the mettle for a Spartan Super. Serving up 25+ Spartan obstacles and 8+ miles of rugged terrain, the Spartan Super spares no one. Developed as the second race in the Spartan Trifecta, the Super is where you prove to yourself you’ve got everything it takes to face the Beast.

 

Sunday, April 29th – Sprint

3+ miles

20-23 Obstacles

The Sprint may be the shortest distance race, but it’s still a favorite amongst both new and returning racers. It’s the perfect distance for those looking to start their Spartan journey. The Sprint also allows returning racers a manageable distance to see how far they can push themselves. Delivering 20+ obstacles over 3+ miles, you’ll never run the same race twice. Once you complete the sprint you are 1/3 on your Spartan TRIFECTA: The ultimate Spartan achievement.

 

Spartan Kids – Saturday & Sunday

Roscolusa 2018 @ Roscolusa Songwriters Festival
Apr 28 @ 4:00 pm – 10:00 pm
Roscolusa 2018 @ Roscolusa Songwriters Festival | Ponte Vedra Beach | Florida | United States

We are a songwriters festival based in Ponte Vedra, FL where we bring hit songwriters from Nashville, TN to the warm beaches of Florida to share the stories behind their songs for a one-night musical event. Our favorite part of Roscolusa is the opportunity to donate to a charity. This year, a portion of our proceeds will benefit the Tom Coughlin Jay Fund. Their mission is to help local families tackle childhood cancer.

 

 

Our mission: To bring the cozy living room atmosphere outdoors for an intimate night of popular music performed by the original songwriters themselves and to shine a light on the creative world of songwriting. At Roscolusa, you not only get to hear hit songs, but you also get to hear the stories behind them. We created Roscolusa to be a multifaceted event. Yes, we will have some of the best singer-songwriters performing their original music, but you will also see some of Jacksonville’s finest food trucks, a play area for kids, and a teen zone!

Our favorite part of Roscolusa is the opportunity to give to a charity. A portion of all our proceeds will benefit the  Tom Coughlin Jay Fund. Their mission is to help families tackle childhood cancer by providing comprehensive financial, emotional, and practical support.

We are proud to announce that Roscolusa Songwriters Festival presented byMomentum Transportation, will be returning for our 7th annual event at Nocatee located in Ponte Vedra, Florida on Saturday April 28th, 2018.
