Christian group Newsboys United will perform at Warsaw Community High School Nov. 4.

The doors will open at 6 p.m., and the show starts at 7 p.m.

Clark Shepherd, founder of Allowing Christ To Shine (ACTS), said the concert will have both the new and old members of Newsboys. It also will be the eighth annual fall concert for ACTS, which brings Christian music to Warsaw.

While this is the second year for the event in the high school’s Tiger Den, Shepherd said in past years ACTS has brought concerts to Grace College and the WCHS Performing Arts Center.

“This will be the biggest band to come to Warsaw,” Shepherd said. “This is a big-city concert coming to Warsaw.”

The group’s influence in Christian has been around for years.

The group was looking for cities for their tour and they reached out to ACTS to book them in Warsaw, Shepherd said. He received an e-mail from them while at dinner in Fort Wayne.

Shepherd also stated the organization wouldn’t be able to put on the concerts without help from sponsors.

Newsboys United’s  “Greatness Of Our God” tour kicked off in Troy, Ohio, on Sept. 12. It will feature Grammy-nominated recording artist Ryan Stevenson, as well as singer-songwriter Adam Agee. There will also be a guest appearance by forcer dcTalk member and singer-songwriter Kevin Max, according to a news release about the tour.

The Newsboys’ latest release, “United,” debuted on the Billboard Top Christian Albums at No. 1 upon its May 10 release. The group has such hits as “God’s Not Dead” and “We Believe.”

The group has sold over 10 million units, have eight Gold certifications, 33 No. 1 radio hits, four Grammy nominations, two American Music Awards and multiple Dove Awards.

“I think this will be an experience for people in this area,” Shepherd said.

Warsaw is known as the orthopedic capital of the world, and Shepherd said he thinks it would be great if the town would be known as the Christian music capital of the world as more and more Christian music comes in.

Shepherd also said he thinks the group will bring more than music during the concert.

“These concerts can bring people closer to God,” he said. The group will also help spread God’s word.
