Brandon Lake vividly remembers the night a group of arena security guards accepted Christ during his Summer Worship Nights Tour with Phil Wickham. 

It was 2023, the first year of the tour, and the two singers were on stage in the final moments of a concert, having asked members of the audience to raise their hands if they wanted to “start a relationship with Jesus or to rededicate their lives,” Lake says. Suddenly, Lake noticed a commotion in the audience, to his left.  

“What had happened was when we gave this invitation to raise your hand if you want to say yes to Jesus, apparently a line of security guards all raised their hand,” Lake told Christian Headlines. 

Christians in the audience surrounded the security guards and helped them take the next step on their spiritual journey. 

“Many believers there that night ran forward and celebrated with the security guards,” he added. “It was just really cool. Because that's why we do this. It's not to entertain. It's to see people have an encounter with God.”

Tickets went on sale March 22 for the 2024 Summer Worship Nights tour, which will hit 17 cities and again feature Lake and Wickham, with special guest Hulvey.
