SHELDON, Iowa — RISE Ministries has announce the theme for this year's RiseFest as "Hope Lives."

RiseFest has partnered with the Christian Festival Association (CFA) and other festivals to share a message of hope, with a goal of encouraging communities to come together and share stories of hope during this time.

“We couldn’t be more excited to launch the 'Hope Lives' campaign," said Rob Roozeboom, president and founder of RISE Ministries. "RiseFest is more than music, it’s a mission, and that mission is to spread hope.

"We are asking you to join us in this mission," Roozeboom continued.. "When you purchase a Hope Lives T-shirt, sweatshirt or yard sign, you're helping three different organizations — Upper Des Moines Food Bank, the Sheldon Mobile Food Bank and RiseFest. Friends, there’s a day coming when we will reunite, celebrate and have overcome, because hope lives."

RiseFest rescheduled date is now on Labor Day Weekend, Sept. 4-5. Most of our lineup has been kept in place with the new date. Featured performers will include Big Daddy Weave, Jason Gray, Cade Thompson, Unspoken, Jeremy Camp and Newsboys UNITED.

Tickets are still available, and an Early Bird Special is being offered through June 30. Prime Package tickets are also still available and include exclusive access to the Prime Tent, refreshments, food, a Hope Lives T-shirt and other activities.
