This week, we performed in Czestochowa, Poland, a city renowned as the epicenter of the Black Madonna cult (which worships Mary). As we prepared to play there, we prayed that God would set people free from this religious idolatry, and we believed in faith that He was going to do something amazing that night.

We set up our stage in the middle of a wide open square in the center of the city. The concert began, and by the time we were a few songs into our show, over seven hundred people had gathered to watch us play.

The crowd continued to grow, and it was clear that people were being moved by our message. David preached from the stage and shared boldly how only Jesus defeated death, and that only through Him could we be saved. He invited those that wanted to receive Him to raise their hands, and over one hundred hands went into the air.

You could feel God’s power throughout the square.

After the show, the band and local church went into the crowd to talk with those that had responded. Our videographer and I interviewed a young guy who was overwhelmed with emotion. When asked what he thought of the show and our message, and he just kept saying, “Amazing!” over and over. I asked him why he chose to raise his hand. Holding back tears, he said he could feel the love in our message. I prayed for him, and asked that God would protect the decision that he had made.

A few minutes later, we talked to Veronica, a girl in her late teens. She told me that, when it became obvious we were talking about God, she chose not to react, but as David shared the Gospel, it was as if a balloon containing all of the bad things she had done started to deflate. These were her words!

I asked her if she had prayed to receive Jesus, and she hadn’t. Upon explaining to her that it was not too late, she prayed right there and gave her life to Jesus! It was unbelievable! I had the privilege of seeing God working in Veronica’s life in real time, as we spoke!

Our concert in Czestochowa was incredible! The next day, we spent over an hour as a band sharing all the testimonies of lives changed by the power of the Cross. That night, we had a “Meet the Band” follow up event, and a young couple who had come to the show but had not responded to the message, came to hear more. By the end of the night, both of them had prayed to receive Jesus!

God seems to be moving in a uniquely powerful way on this tour! Pray that this continues, and that thousands of people are reached for Jesus this summer!

"No Longer Music" (NLM) is an evangelistic music and theatrical production group led by David Pierce which, for 30 years, has used the stage to communicate the Gospel of Jesus in night clubs, city squares and festivals, to young people who would never step foot into a church.

    For this month’s Come&Live! artist interview, I chatted with Misha Nokarashvili, lead singer of the band NUTEKI from Belarus.

  • Finish the Race

    I have never been around someone more anointed than John*.

    We were together in one of the most dangerous parts of Amsterdam, and he started talking to a guy on the street. Suddenly, the man dropped to his knees and began to repent.

    Later, we went to Vondelpark in Amsterdam. This park is located in the center of the city and was where all the alternative people hung out. We sat together on a hill, and people started coming and sitting at his feet. It was like John had some magnetic presence. After the crowd gathered, he would just begin to talk to them about Jesus. I had never seen anything like that before.

  • Episode 71: Chucking Puppies, the End of U2, and Why Do We Tolerate Immoral Public Figures?

    All the regulars are finally back together again! With Luke bringing his diplomatic sensitive side to the conversation and Chad talking for days, what else do you need?

    In this episode, they discuss the demise of U2, the effect that fatherlessness is having on our world and how apparently white christians don’t get care about morality.

    Think that sounds crazy? Well that’s not all, in David’s random story he tells of the time his band was labeled as a Satanic group in the newspapers.

  • I Don’t Dig Wells!

    God desires to use Millennials to change the world, but as with every generation, they face unique roadblocks to living in radical obedience, and they seem to experience a particular difficulty in entering the mission field. In my previous blog posts in this series, I addressed two significant reasons why: fear of commitment and the need to instantly specialize.

    In this post, I would like to look at a more fundamental barrier - the fear of the very title itself.

  • Episode 70: Christian Boozing, AC DC, and the Death Grip.
    While Luke is hanging out in Russia, Ben, David and Chad try something new... they bring in the buzzer! For each topic discussed, they have 8 minutes to answer before the buzzer goes off and it’s time to move on. They talk about some difficult subjects, including the excessive consumerism in the USA, whether or not Christians should be casual about alcohol consumption, and the continued downfall of celebrities that are being accused of sexual harassment.

    Why is AC/DC in the title you may ask? Well, listen to David’s Random story and you’ll find out!
