Jesus takes the promoter wheel during Winter Jam 2022—aka a big ol' Christian music festival. Though all of the bands have different styles—like nu-metal Skillet or pop-heavy R&B singer Tauren Wells—they all have the same Christian message.

Tickets are not available in advance, just show up and $10 will get you in.
The event also has faith that the big guy will protect you from COVID-19, posting, "We would like to make Winter Jam available to all. Therefore, we will not be requiring proof of COVID-19 vaccination or negative test results to attend Winter Jam 2022."

Tickets for the all-ages show are general admission, so if you want to be close to the stage, you might want to get there early.
