After successfully launching the “At Home Concert Experience” (AHCX) earlier this spring, Soldiers For Faith (SFF) continued to make a global impact over the summer. In Series 2 of the new virtual concert experience running in July and August, Christian artists continued to connect with individuals and families at home to provide them with a sense of community.
Earlier this year at the height of the pandemic, the new concert series began after a simple conversation between Chad Mattson, the lead singer of the band Unspoken, and Kelly McAndrew, CEO of AM Technical Solutions (AMTS) and SFF. They were discussing ways to deliver fellowship and “face-to-face” interaction between music fans and artists during the global quarantine. Together with other Christian artists, they decided to take a step forward.
A few concerts turned into an entirely new ministry opportunity through AHCX. Now, SFF has completed two series featuring a variety of amazing Christian artists, who were more than gracious in giving their time and talent to reach across boundaries and connect directly with individuals.
This uplifting forum for real conversation, authentic connection, and a world-class musical experience has been a major success not only in the U.S. but around the globe.
