Proceeds to Benefit Youth Through Outdoors Outreach Programs

BOILING SPRINGS, N.C.—Contemporary Christian music group NewSong will perform a concert on Saturday, June 20, on the campus of Gardner-Webb University. General admission tickets are available to the public for $5 each, and all proceeds will benefit local youth. The event is presented by the Shelby-based foothills chapter of Cross Trail Outfitters (CTO).

NewSong, a Dove Award-winning and Grammy-nominated band, has released more than 20 albums since forming in 1981 in southern Georgia. The group, also founder of the nation’s largest annual Christian music tour “Winter Jam,” recently released a live worship album titled “Faithful.”

The band’s concert is part of a day of CTO-sponsored activities on the GWU campus. CTO is a nonprofit Christian youth hunting and fishing club that seeks to disciple and mentor to boys ages seven to 20 through a common interest in the outdoors. All proceeds from the concert will benefit the organization’s youth.

“Our motto is ‘building men, preserving our heritage and sharing our faith,’” shared Chip Camp, an event organizer and leader of the Cross Trail Outfitters foothills chapter. “We are very focused on getting kids outside in God’s creation to experience the outdoors and grow spiritually.”

The concert is set to begin at 7:30 p.m. in Paul Porter Arena inside Gardner-Webb’s Lutz-Yelton Convocation Center (LYCC). The bands When Stars Fall and Reno will also perform.

Floor seats for the event are occupied, and all other seats will be available on a first come, first served basis. For tickets, click here. For more information on the event, visit, or call Camp at 704-473-3833 or Chris Weaver at 704-692-6185.
