WILMORE, Ky. — Asbury University officials have announced the institution will be co-sponsoring a Christian music festival at Servant Heart Farm (formerly the Ichthus Farm) in Wilmore later this year. River Rock Kentucky will feature some of the biggest names in Christian music alongside an eclectic lineup of up-and-coming artists.

River Rock Kentucky makes its debut Sept. 15-16 — buy tickets today before prices go up in June!

The event will feature artists like Jeremy Camp, The Newsboys, Hawk Nelson, Rory Comtois, Love Collide and many more. Organizers are also welcoming volunteers to help with the festival. Sign up here.

Students in Asbury’s Media Communication program will be involved in facilitating River Rock Kentucky, continuing a tradition of excellence that integrates faith and vocation.

“I’m excited for the incredible opportunity Media Communication students have to help facilitate the event,” said Tom Mangione ’19, a Worship Arts major at Asbury. “Students get to use the knowledge they've learned at Asbury, not only at a real concert, but at something that's unapologetically for the glory of God. They get to live out Asbury's motto of ‘Academic Excellence and Spiritual Vitality.’” 

“Great Christian music has been in Asbury’s DNA for a long time,” said Mark Troyer, vice president for Enrollment Management at Asbury University. “We hope River Rock Kentucky will be a time for students, alumni, friends and community members to again come together in Wilmore, celebrating the gift of music that God gave us as a form of celebration and worship.”

Comtois, who is the worship arts pastor at Bethel Harvest Church in Nicholasville, Ky., was instrumental in creating River Rock Kentucky. Comtois hopes the event will be a rallying point for worshippers, bringing churches and individuals into unity.

“I want to see everyone come to one place together to worship Him in true unity — because that is where the glory falls,” he said.
