This year, Steiger band Nuteki was able to play 19 concerts across various parts of Russia, including the Far Eastern region of the country and Siberia. Russia passed a new law in 2016 forbidding the preaching of the Gospel, which has resulted in many churches becoming afraid of doing any kind of evangelism.
During Nuteki’s recent tour of Kazakhstan (09/07 - 09/21), they were able to play five concerts for a total of 4800 people, 180 of which prayed to Jesus for the first time! Kazakhstan is a predominantly Muslim country, and is considered very closed to the Gospel.
Sobre Todo Nombre recently returned from a short tour in Norway, where they played gigs in two different clubs in Kristiansand and Oslo. The last time they played in the country, they were told that unless they refrained from preaching the Gospel, they wouldn't be able to play again in a local venue in Kristiansand - yet somehow they were invited back again.

If the Apostle Paul Had a Band - Part 5

We’ve been reading through Philippians, and looking to Paul and his team to set the example for us in the art and music scene today. Paul toured all over the place, preached Jesus, and planted churches. We’ve been challenged by his love for his audience, dedication to the proclaiming of the message, and sacrifice for the cause.

You see, if Paul had had a band, they would have been different to most bands and artists today because they’d be completely sold out for Jesus. In Philippians chapter 3, Paul declares, “Indeed, I count all things loss for the excellence of the knowledge of Christ Jesus, my Lord.”

Why Did Nabeel’s Death Hit Me So hard?

The first time I heard about Nabeel Qureshi was when someone handed me a copy of Seeking Allah, Finding Jesus. I was on tour with No Longer Music, and I flew through the book on the two-day journey from Germany to Portugal.

I have had the privilege of sharing the Gospel in many countries with predominantly Muslim populations, including Northern Iraq, Lebanon, and Turkey, and Nabeel’s story was inspiring and incredibly helpful. I was profoundly affected by his remarkable testimony, and was struck by how difficult it is for a Muslim to convert to Christianity.

You Can Rent Me, but I’m Not for Sale!

I am a full-time missionary and have been for seven years. I work for Steiger International, an organization dedicated to reaching young people outside the church, and helping them grow in their relationship with Jesus.

Working in music and the arts, I interact mostly with twenty-somethings. And although stepping into full-time ministry holds its challenges for everyone, I’ve noticed some unique barriers that the millennial generation is facing. I have found that for this demographic, the chasm between inspiration and action tends to be perilous and sadly, few manage to successfully navigate it.

Artist Interview: Artem "R. Tech" Usov

This month, I connected with one of the most recent additions to the Come&Live! artist family, b-boy Artem “R. Tech” Usov from Ukraine. He filled me in on what he’s been up to recently, and talked about how he uses his platform as a breakdancer to share Jesus in the hip-hop scene, both in his home country and around the world.

On July 27th, Come&Live! bands No Longer Music (NLM - USA) and Nuteki (Belarus) teamed up for the third time to share the Gospel on tour in Ukraine. During the course of their 11 shows in ten cities, the two bands were able to bring the message of Jesus to over 20,000 people.

Come&Live! band No Longer Music (NLM) has been on an intensive European tour since June 10, sharing the Gospel through their bold and creative blend of music and theater. They’ve already performed in such countries as Germany, Poland, and Hungary, and the coming month will see them continuing to do shows in Ukraine, Moldova, Turkey, France, Italy and Switzerland.

The last week of June, Come&Live! band DENS set out on their first of two, short, summer tours in the USA. Starting out in Pennsylvania and finishing in Illinois, they were able to share the Gospel to hundreds at festivals, bars, and venues along the way.
