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.

    IIn this episode, Ben apologizes for rushing to judgment on an article that was shared on the podcast community page. The guys use this opportunity to talk about several key points that were made in response to Ben's comment. They ask, does the Gospel "work" with secular people? Is it arrogant to challenge people to share the Gospel, and is preaching the Gospel a unique calling, or something all believers should do?
