Springfield’s Victory Mission is hosting an event to raise awareness of their Restoration Program on Saturday, June 22, featuring Christian music artist John Tibbs.
The “Restoration Night of Worship” will take place at the Schweitzer United Methodist Outreach Center, 2747 East Sunshine in Springfield. The concert will start at 6:30 p.m. with local musician Kyle Lacey opening the show.
“Last year we had John Tibbs come to Springfield and play a small acoustic set,” Victory Mission Community Engagement Manager Janelle Reed said in a statement. “He blew us away with his talent and heart for people. This year we are gearing the event more towards the Restoration piece we have built in Victory Mission and Tibbs’s songs align with that very well. We couldn’t be more thrilled to have him back.”
The concert is free and open to the public. Victory Mission Coffee and pastries from the Mission’s Street Chef Catering will be available for sale to raise funds for the Mission.
There will also be information on Victory Mission’s Restoration Program. The program takes men who were living on the streets, or spent time in prison, or is seeking to overcome an addiction, and gives them an 18-month residential program to transform their lives.
