The Jeremy Camp I Will Follow Tour with Citizen Way and Royce Lovett came to the Catch The Fire Worship Center in Durham. Our St. Michael’s youth group gathered together with Damaris Acevedo and Tommy Kowas. Also joining us were members of St. Bernadette’s, St. Andrew’s, St, Michael’s and St. Joseph’s prayer groups. This was not only a concert but an amazing witness from the artists. Throughout the evening we heard testimonials and Biblical references. We were praising God and having a great time doing it. We were singing and dancing in our seats.
Jeremy Camp has 12 years of accomplishments as a songwriter and recording artist, including four million albums sold, and a GRAMMY nomination. Jeremy describes himself as “a minister who happens to play music as a way to minister.” Over the last year and a half, this ordained minister has experienced a season of artistic growth and musical creativity, evident with his new album, I Will Follow. Jeremy often finds God teaches him through song. The first single off the new record, “He Knows,” is one in which God spoke comfort over Jeremy’s past. As he shares in his book, I Still Believe, Jeremy lost his first wife to cancer at age 21 and in recent years, lost a baby to miscarriage with his wife. There are a lot of people hurting, and they often turn to Jeremy and his music.
Jeremy’s songs reflect years of studying God’s word, in which he gained a foundation from growing up in a pastor’s home and attending Bible college. Ministry for him is a lifestyle, one in which the whole family participates. Jeremy and his wife Adrienne, have two daughters and a son. Just looking at the pictures, you can see how this singer appeals to all ages!
