The Christian music event was initiated by Craig Church of Craig Church Ministries Inc., a nonprofit evangelistic organization based in Wilkes County. Church said that he felt God leading him to initiate something positive in his hometown which inspired his organization to bring FaithFest NC to fruition.
The mission of FaithFest is to use worship music (in a variety of genres) and the Word of God (via testimonies
and the preached Word) to unite believers, save the lost, bring a community together, and spark a revival
that will change our area and beyond.
