RETURN

“And he will return the hearts of the fathers to their children, and the hearts of the children to their fathers”

Malachi 4:6

 

There has never been a greater need to rise up and instill hope to this generation.

 What the world desperately needs is Hope and Truth in this day and age. The message of hope will always bring life and freedom from fear.

By coming together in unity, we will reach out with love and compassion, hope and grace, and mercy for others.

We are looking to encourage strong family values, and see lives changed, by advocating a positive faith-based culture.  As we link arm in arm with one another, a spirit of unity is created within our community.

We are rising up a mighty army who is compelled to love and change our world for the better.

Our event, is having a positive, and profound, impact on people’s lives, through our extraordinary concerts, that are not only entertaining, but inspire, and speak life.

We want to create an atmosphere that is uplifting and encouraging to all who come out.

This years theme is calling people to RETURN …..with our whole hearts.

Hope is more than wishful thinking.  Hope is a confident expectation of good things.  Everyone NEEDS Hope!

“Now Faith is being sure of what you Hope for and certain of what you do not see.”  Hebrews 11:1

 

We look forward to seeing you at Hope For More

Entertainment
Informants

Informants narrows their agenda down into two categories: Worship and Mission.

Drawing from a close knit of friends with musical influences from inspirational worship to hardcore, Informants desires to create a worship atmosphere where people can experience the very presence of God and learn what He can do with just a few lives that are totally abandoned to him. Worship is the start, Mission always follows.

Informants believes that they are messengers that not only spread they’re message lyrically, but also through the art of music.

Based out of St. John’s, NL, they are pioneering a movement of acceptance, art, worship, and mission in their local communities and churches.

Kenny Mac

A Vocal Powerhouse! Kenny is a `Newcomer’ in the Canadian country music scene, in that he has been cutting his teeth performing solo as well as with his band, The Kenny Mac Band in countless shows varying from small-town bars to summer festivals across Alberta and Saskatchewan for nearly a decade.

 

Often compared to the vocal style of Keith Urban, Colin Raye and Bryan White, his vocal sound is entirely his own, adding a uniqueness that is often absent from today’s country music.

Aside from being an exceptional singer, Kenny is an extremely talented songwriter as well. His writings are a true testament of the person that he is. From emotional ballads, to good ol’ upbeat rockin’ songs, it is clear he writes from the heart and likes to stray from the proverbial `box’, creating fresh, entertaining songs.

Kenny’s live shows are definitely built for the audience! Whether he is performing with his band or playing a solo acoustic show, it is clear Kenny is also a fan of live music, addressing a major shortcoming that he believes lacks in much of today’s live shows… audience involvement. “I absolutely hate it when I go out to see a performer, and that performer doesn’t talk to the audience. Not me, Man! I might be goofy or silly, but I promise you, you will leave my show feeling like you know me better!” Kenny exclaims.

 

Not only is Kenny a gifted singer/songwriter, who credits all of his abilities and blessings to God, his honest and down-to- earth, humble mind-set is evident in his `day job’ as well. Kenny is an accomplished floorcovering installer/tile setter, owning his own small installation contracting company. Kenny says the self-discipline skills he has developed over the years with his work has more than given him the skills, the drive, and the determination it takes to make it in the music business. “If you have ever spent 18 hours kneeling on a concrete floor setting tile, or bruised both of your knees on a carpet kicker, I’m sure you will agree that you can pretty-much do anything you put your mind to!” Kenny says with a wide grin!

 

Kenny has been singing for pretty much his whole life, whether as a child singing with his uncles who also play guitar and sing, or in plays at school or on a tiny stage in a small club, it is clear Kenny was born to sing!  Kenny has recently discovered a great love for writing and singing gospel and worship music.  “It’s no secret my faith has made me a different person.  I’ve overcome so much in my life in the last couple years with the love and guidance of my saviour, Jesus Christ.  It’s a natural step for me to sing for my creator!  It’s very exciting, to be able to sing country music as well as enter into a whole new genre!” Kenny exclaims.

 

“I’m looking forward to what the next chapter of my music life will be!  Where is that and how does it look?  God only knows!  I have a feeling I’m on a Need-to-know-basis.  I wouldn’t have it any other way!”

Nic Brouwer

Nic Brouwer is a worship leader from small town Saskatchewan with a call on his life to “wake up the church through music.”

Depending where you’re coming from, that could sound very strange, very offensive, or very needed.

Whatever the case, with one listen to Brouwer’s music, you’ll be convinced that he believes in this call wholeheartedly.

His songs are authentic, heartfelt and exhortational in nature and you will leave a listening session feeling challenged and refreshed.

Nic has been leading the Church in singing for almost 20 years and even led worship in Spanish in Mexico for 2 years. Along with his wife of 15 years, and 3 children, Nic lives in Marshall, SK, just outside of Lloydminster.

Orly Rodriguez

Orly Rodriguez was born and raised in Miami, Fl. After graduating high school in 1992 Orly pursued a succesful career as a computer technician. He started his own computer repair and sales business at in the spring of 1994. From this time on Orly continued to further his career by working in New York for the Dow Jones Local Media Group. It wasn’t long before Orly ventured off into television and media and moved back to Florida to work for Univision. In 2002 everything changed for Orly as he began a downward spiral in the world of drugs and alcohol. But hope wasn’t far behind and in 2004 he entered a Christian Rehab program in Orlando, Florida where he first encountered the truth of the gospel of Jesus Christ and was born again. In 2005 He came out north to Pambrun, Saskatchewan to study at Millar College of the Bible. During his second year at Millar he discovered the need in Canada for teenagers struggling with addictions and began working as Pastoral Director at Rock Solid Refuge in the summer of 2007. In 2008 he married the girl of his dreams Rosella Rodriguez and entered into part time ministry as interim youth pastor at Vanguard Community Church and continued his work in Rock Solid Refuge with his wife Rose. In 2009 Orly completed the four year program at Millar College and received his bachelors in Biblical Studies and Strategic Ministries. In 2010 Rock Solid began its first summer as a year long program. Orly and Rose worked diligently with Rock Solid to ensure a successful transition and in November they moved into Shaunavon to take a three month Sabbatical from ministry. During this time Orly and Rose felt a strong calling to the Shaunavon Alliance Church and began pursuing God for wisdom in the decision to leave Rock Solid Refuge. After much prayer and clear confirmation Orly and Rose affirmed the calling for ministry in the Shaunavon Alliance Church and began serving as Senior Pastor in January, 2011.

 

Orly and Rose moved to Lloydminster and is currently in ministry as the associate Pastor at Southridge Community Church in Lloydminster, AB.
