The main emphasis of Circuit Ryder is Music Outreach and Mercy Services. One of the best forms of communication with youth globally is through music. It crosses all language and national differences. Music is a powerful tool to touch people’s lives.
Music and Missions
Since 1996, we have helped various Christian rock bands from 16 countries play in 11 different nations. There have been so many incredible opportunities to go to places where people would not expect this kind of message. Clubs, bars, prisons, military bases, open-air stages, festivals, etc.
In most of these venues we are asked the same question: Why do you come to a place like this?
The answer is simple: This is where Jesus would come.
Most people think of a “mission’s trip” as going to another country and visiting an orphanage or building a school or church. These are wonderful things to do and we have been part of some of these things. But there is a very valuable and important place for Music in Missions. I am asking you to consider being a part of Music and Missions outreach.
