When we began our careers in youth ministry, Matt Maher was just beginning to tour as a musician. He was the camp musician at my LIFE TEEN basic training in St. Louis in 2002. We had the opportunity to see him in a school gym back in 2003. From there he has grown to perform for bigger and bigger crowds. Through the years we have attended and enjoyed his concerts in a lot of different settings in several different states. It has been amazing to see his music and ministry grow and change from a parish musician to a internationally known Christian artist. When the founder of Teen2Teens asked me if I wanted to play as an opening act for Matt Maher, the answer was a resounding, "yes!"
In addition to the honor of opening for Matt Maher, the concert was hosted in St. Louis. It was great to be among people whom I know and love. The night was a whirlwind of catching up with old friends that we had not seen since we left for Florida six months prior. We even saw a few faces from our hometown, Effingham, IL. The crowd was young and vibrant and fun! Thank you St. Louis for the great memories!
