When living the life of a Christian musician, it can be tempting to focus all of your efforts on improving your music. It’s commendable to want to hone your craft, but music is far from the only thing that matters in this world. As a musician, you are more than the notes you play and the lyrics you write and sing. Looking beyond your skills, you should be molding yourself into the person you want to be. A Christian musician has to consider what message she is sending through her actions as well as her music. Even more important, you have to know what you stand for and why it matters. Taking a step back from the simple Xs and Os of being a Christian musician, we want to help you understand why your faith and beliefs are important.

We had an amazing time at Camp Electric in 2019, but one of our campers had an even better summer by receiving a special gift from Darren Mulligan of We Are Messengers. Brienna is a 15-year-old guitar player who earned a special slot at this year’s camp thanks to an annual contest put on by the WAY-FM radio network.
What is this Camp Electric Contest?
Sometimes we at Camp Electric have the ability to connect talented young people with famous musicians at little to no cost. This is all thanks to a series of contests, discounts, and scholarships put on by our wonderful sponsors and partners as well as everyday people who believe in what we’re doing each summer.
