RiseFest returns better than ever

It’s been 20 years since Rob Roozeboom founded Rise Ministries. We have watched it grow over the last two decades, and the progress has been truly impressive.

Last year, when so many things were called off, canceled or postponed, RiseFest, the signature event of Rise Ministries, was canceled. It was a difficult decision, but the correct one.

This year, RiseFest returned, with two days of music and message at the RiseFest grounds on the eastern edge of Sheldon. Bands are performing for 16,000 people on the new Harvest Stage, the latest sign of the success of the Christian festival.

It seems nothing — a pandemic, powerful storms, the challenges of building a successful ministry — can stop RiseFest. That’s wonderful news, and we wish it and Roozeboom, a truly inspiring figure, many more years of success.
