Freshman Hanna Roddy said, "I look forward to Winter Jam all year round! My favorite part of Winter Jam is the atmosphere. Not only is there an atmosphere of worship, but as soon as I walk into the stadium, I feel an atmosphere of family. I know the artists don't have a clue who I am, but it has always been so beautiful to be in a room where everyone is crying out in worship to the same God!"
Junior Kayla Gibson elaborates, "Winter Jam is a place where all Christians come together in one building and worship our Lord and Savior!"
Winter Jam isn't only important to the fans, but it's also significant to the artists and Winter Jam's founding members.
Artist Kari Jobe said, "Winter Jam is a special tour. It’s always amazing to be in a room full of people who have different backgrounds, stories and experiences but to come together to lift up one name, Jesus! I love hearing everyone worshipping and lifting up His name. I also love the diversity that this tour brings, everyone is sure to have a moment in the night that they can connect. It’s an honor to be a part of such an impactful tour.”
Winter Jam founding member Billy Goodwin asserts, "Greenville, SC holds a special place in our hearts concerning Winter Jam, because it was there 26 years ago in the old Memorial Auditorium that God birthed in our hearts the idea for doing this type of tour. Our desire from the beginning was to try and remove any barriers that would prevent people from coming and experiencing a wonderful night of praise and worship. It has been an incredible journey, and God continues to prove Himself faithful every night as we see lives changed for eternity."
Winter Jam has grown to be an integral part of our Christian community here in Greenville, SC. Don't miss out on a night of worship. Gather your friends and head out to the 2018 Winter Jam Tour Spectacular.
