Big Daddy Weave will play at Callaway Stadium in Lagrange on Saturday, August 9 as part of the TRUST 2014 Youth Explosion Event
(Lagrange, GA) — Big Daddy Weave, a Dove Award-winning Christian band, will headline the TRUST 2014 Youth Explosion hosted by Teaver Road Baptist Church in Lagrange.
The local church is hoping to attract thousands of youth to the event at Callaway Stadium at Lagrange College. The concert will kick off at 6:30 p.m. on Saturday, August 9, 2014.
“The goal of the event is to bring the youth in the community together for a back-to-school bash,” said Sharon Geter, who is organizing the event.
Wife to Teaver Road Baptist Church Pastor Danny Geter, she said the event is the culmination of an idea that sparked when her husband first came to the church.
“My husband became the pastor of Teaver Road Baptist in November of 2012. The first Sunday we were there, we pulled up in the parking lot a little early and he looked out over the ball field in the back and he said he could just see thousands of youth worshiping God out there,” she said. “I then made it my goal to see this happen.”
A “big contemporary Christian music fan,” Geter knew that a concert would be a big draw for the youth. She contacted the agent of the band Big Daddy Weave, an award-winning group, and after several weeks of discussion were able to settle on a date for the group to play in LaGrange.
However, Geter soon realized the original plan for the group to play at the church would require more parking than they had available. She spoke with Troup County Parks and Recreation about using Callaway Stadium for the August concert.
“The stadium was booked every weekend except the one we needed,” Geter said.
Having secured the location, Trust 2014 Youth Explosion was set. Big Daddy Weave will headline the event and Nashville artist Matt Price will be a special guest.
Coach David Rocker from Point University also will speak at the event.
The church so far has sold several hundred tickets to the event, but hopes to fill all 4,000 spots available for the concert.
