The Maverick Way Tour

November 3 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm

Experience a powerful, hands-in-the-air, Jesus-in-the-Room, worship experience. Featuring Noah Schnacky, Travis Greene, Todd Galberth, Forward City Music, and JWLKRS. Maverick City started with a dream to make space for folk that would otherwise live in their own separate worlds. To break the unspoken rules that exist in the CCM and Gospel World! But I think more importantly to be a mega phone for a community of creatives that have been pushed to the margins of the industry of Church Music. What brings us together, and that sound that is vivaciously smacking you in the face the first time you hit play on a Maverick track. Isn’t the sound of a community that centered around their deprivation, it’s the audacious sound of true belonging: The beautiful harmony of long-lost family.
