Jeremy Camp is a songwriter and recording artist with 12 years experience and 4 million albums sold.  He has performed in more than 32 countries and describes himself as “a minister who happens to play music as a way to minister.”

In 2013 a missionary in Kyrgystan reached out to Jeremy asking for him and his band to hold a  revival event.  When Jeremy arrived he said he felt “oppression and fear like I’ve never felt in my life.” As the day of the big event approached, intimidating threats and imprisonment warnings targeted the missionaries and Jeremy’s band. Even the local news channel told the public not to come. And yet, 8,000 people still showed up. As the crowd gathered, Jeremy lay on his face crying before God. “Lord, I can’t do this,” he said. “This is too much.’ He realized the dangers of what was happening. "In my heart, I wanted to go home and raise my kids; I wanted to grow old with my wife. When I said, ‘I can’t do this,’" the Lord spoke to me and said, ‘Perfect. You finally got it. You can do this.’”

The moment was pivotal. Jeremy said,“Something clicked,” “I had been sharing the scripture all my life, Acts 20:24, where Paul says, ‘I consider my life worth nothing to me; my only aim is to finish the race and complete the task the Lord Jesus has given me—the task of testifying to the good news of God’s grace.’ And in Galatians, ‘I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me.’ It’s just all these scriptures where Paul is saying, I know. My life is not my own. I’ve given my heart to Jesus. He’s my king, I’m his servant. And I think from that, I began to understand, it’s not me. I can’t do it. It’s all Him.”
