This festival is about Really Embracing Another's Life – the concept is for one person to participate in helping to change the life of one other person. No magic, no deep philosophic mind benders, no 8 simple steps to cure all mankind’s ills.
Encouraging fellow Christians (1 Thessalonians 5:11) and ministering to others (Colossians 3:16) is something Christians are called to do. For us, this is a given. With REALFest, we want to go a step further than that.
July 25, 26 and 27 we will invite thousands of people to meet on a piece of land in Western Iowa for three days of music, challenges and the promise that everyone that shows up will leave with the chance to reach to one person.
The focus for the festival, beyond ministering, will be threefold 1) Adoption 2) developing new Foster families and 3) Orphan care. It's about serving Christ by serving others...being the hands and feet of Jesus.
We will have representatives from many states like Kansas, Missouri, Iowa, Nebraska, South Dakota and Minnesota and national groups that will be on-hand to actually get people started in the process of becoming foster parents, adopting families and reaching out to orphans. These people will know the requirements and laws for the states they represent. No one goes home empty handed, no one goes home uninformed.
One stage, 10-15 artists, music from across the spectrum, but all aimed at the family. We will intersperse music with speakers and video presentations. REALFest is a project of Hands In Motion. Proceeds from the ticket sales go to groups that are recruiting new foster and adoptive families.
