Why Popular Christian Musicians Flock to Marshall

Why Popular Christian Musicians Flock to Marshall

Lexi Saugstad and a few Marshall High School classmates had a vision in 2012: To worship and cheer on popular Christian music artist Britt Nicole at a concert.

Except they didn’t want to travel to Sioux Falls or the Twin Cities; they wanted the Southern-based singer to travel to Marshall.

“There were people who didn’t think we could pull it off or believe in us,” Lexi said. “But God gave us dreams that didn’t fit the worldly (perspective).”

Lexi’s mother and sister emailed Britt’s manager.

“He suggested that we all just buy tickets to her nearest concert to come see her,” Lexi recalled. 

But Lexi and her friends would not give up, and they tapped into family, friends and local businesses to compel Britt’s manager to make the trip to Marshall. On Oct. 30, the fourth concert featuring Christian music stars will return to Marshall High School, this time with Tenth Avenue North, Hawk Nelson and Dan Bremnes performing.

“The cool thing about these concerts is that each year they seem to get a little bigger and a little better,” said Marah Mulso, one of the original organizers. “More and more work has to be put in to them, but it provides many opportunities for FCA youth to step up into leadership roles.  

“To God be the glory!” 

The concerts would have never gotten off the ground, Lexi and other student leaders said, without Robin Knudson, Minnesota FCA’s Marshall Area Representative.  

“Robin believed in us – that was the biggest part,” Lexi said. “She did not shut down our idea or discourage us. She believed in us and showed us how to follow the Lord down the path he was leading us. She was our mentor during all of this personally, as well as on the overall idea of the concert. Her passion for Jesus and the people of our community who need Jesus is amazing.”

Community members, local businesses and hundreds of volunteers rally to pull off the concerts. 

“It was amazing to see God open door after door and bless all the hard work that was put into getting Britt to Marshall,” Marah said. “The most gratifying and rewarding part about the Britt Nicole concert was to be in one place with many of my classmates, peers, community members, and family all worshipping ONE GOD. I remember being able to feel the Holy Spirit move within the room, and being able to see Jesus work in everyone’s heart.” 

Karley Polejewski started to get involved in 2014, before Building 429 headlined the concert. Specifically, she helps with food preparation. Though adults do help, Karley said she’s proud that students power these concerts. 

“The most gratifying part of these concerts is the impact that they make not only on our FCA group or our high school, but on the entire community,” Karley said. “More than once we've been questioned by bands about Marshall being able to support a full-fledged concert. Each time, Robin is able to confidently assure them that God's hand has worked in amazing ways here and that is due to such an enthusiastic community for Christ.”

Added Trisha Bergjord, “It's amazing to see a small idea come into reality in a way only God can do.”

I was blessed to go to the first Britt Nicole concert there in Marshall with my daughter Mindi Schnaser & my grandchildren, Lexi, Ashton & Ty. Lexi was one of those girls with that dream. So gratifying to have these young people see how the Lord can work. Prayers that this years concert touches many lives! God Bless✝

I gave had the privilege of attending the last 3 concerts. Britt Nichole was amazing, as well as Manic Drive and Coffee, I think was the gentleman's name. Manic Drive returned to Marshall for a Friday Night Lights concert. Building 429 with Hawk Nelson and company almost rocked the roof off the high scool during the second concert. The Newsboys, and Finding Favor (one of my personal faves) and other artists at the third concert at the RA facility on the SMSU campus was such a special event because it was the first time that my entire family attended a Christian concert together. These events are life changing and I pray that God continues to bless our Marshall community with the ability to keep bringing these inspirational musicians to spread God's message. I can't wait for this concert!

Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to start my own blog (well, almost...HaHa!) Fantastic job.
I really loved what you had to say, and more than that, how you presented it.
Too cool!
