ALWAYS ONE MINISTRIES
Always One Ministries is a 501(c)3 non-profit ministry based in Kokomo, Indiana. Our goal is to touch as many lives and
impact as many young people as possible, through bringing in Christian rock concerts and events. Always One
Ministries (A1M) began officially in 2011, so that we could begin the process of fund-raising money to put on bigger and
better shows.

A1M, is responsible for the annual Kingdom Come Festival, but also for a couple of concert series: The Pit, and
Revolution Next. In addition to those series, A1M also plays host to several random tour
groups throughout the year.

A1M PARTNERS WITH TRINITY LIFE CENTER (PENDLETON, IN) AGAIN FOR THIS HUGE SHOW
   We were so stoked as, one by one, the pieces for this incredible
show began to fall into place. I mean, Lastwatch and The Protest, on
their own...is a can't miss show. You throw in a band like Made Alive
and the show becomes even better. You have the privilege of working
with a rapidly-rising band like Silversyde and it just became a show
that you won't soon forget. This show came together so nicely, that
you had to know God has something special planned.
   Then all of a sudden, we get a call from Adam Kronshagen, our
friend who drums for the incomparable Icon For Hire. He was hoping to
find a way to begin speaking a message that God laid on his heart
about "PURPOSE" and adding Adam to this already jaw-dropping show
was a no-brainer.
   Pendleton, Indiana's Trinity Life Center will be THE place to be on
Saturday, February 8th. Tickets are just $7 at the door. ($5 in advance
by purchasing through our online link
HERE)
   Made Alive, Silversyde, The Protest, and Lastwatch with special
guest speaker, Adam Kronshagen.... for just a mere $7 at the door.
That is too good to pass up!
        When Shawn Jump from Icon For Hire told us about a band they had been playing with
on the road, he asked if we would add them to a show that Icon For Hire was going to play for
us. We said, sure. I mean, it's Shawn Jump from Icon For Hire asking us for a favor...were we
going to say no? lol. Right after we said yes, he told us that the band's name was Loftland,
and they were a pop band from Wisconsin. He also added this little prophetic word.... "you are
going to love them." Well, Shawn was right.
   Since their first Kokomo performance at our debut Revolution Next event, Loftland has made
a name for themselves here in Kokomo They must have enjoyed Kokomo too, because after
that performance they made appearances at two different Family Worship Center's PUSH
events (youth group), they played a surprise birthday party, they came in with Manic Drive's
EPIC tour, for Kingdom Come Festival appearances in both 2012 and 2013, and honored us
by selecting Kokomo as a tour stop on the Let's Make It Loud CD Release tour. Kokomo has
grown to love Loftland, and Loftland seems to love Kokomo.
   When Dominic contacted us about doing a show in January, we jumped at the chance. We
found a location when our good friend Teddy Conn, and his youth group from Woodland
Church of God opened their doors to the show. The puzzle was complete when Dominic
asked us to check whether or not The Perfect Dream would come and open the show for
them. Those kids are amazing, and it was an easy choice for Dominic in asking for them.
   So this past January 11th, before all this arctic freeze/polar vortext had cancelled almost all
forms of life...lol, we were able to put on a GREAT show in front of a very nice crowd at
Woodland Church of God in Kokomo.         
   The night started with The Perfect Dream playing and, as usual, a lot of astonished faces
when people saw how young these kids were, and how amazing they rocked. I even noticed a
LOT of parents come to the stage area from the back when they played their cover of Fall Out
Boy's hit song. The Perfect Dream had set the stage nicely for Loftland.
   Loftland came out and played SOME of the older songs, but most of their brand new songs
from their debut full-length album (their first since signing with Dream Records)... we also met
the new lineup...since we last saw them, Steven and Zach have departed and Joey has joined
the group. They put on a tremendous high-energy show, as always, and even had the crowd
sit down for a bit to enjoy a couple slower classic Loftland songs. Heck, Ben even played the
trumpet in one song.
   All in all, it was another great show that A1M was honored to help put together and be a part
of. Make sure you check out the photo albums in A1M's facebook page for more pictures from
that night.
A1M RADIO CONTINUES TO BE A HIT
    We started it back in August of 2013 in reaction to none of our local radio
stations playing what we call "real" Christian Rock. We created an online radio
station in order to heavily feature bands that have played in, are playing in, or
will be playing in A1M events. The station is not limited to these bands, and
does play other national "hits" as well...we even throw in some locals and stuff
never heard before too.
   In addition to the music, we have Chris Bousum (A1M co-founder) on
Monday nights, doing a radio show called "Return to the Movement" where he
focuses on the historic look back at the Jesus People Movement of the 70's.
Then on Wednesday night Chris and Jay Karp get together for 2 hours of
absurdity they call the Chris & Jay Show. Those shows have been the most
listened to in our short history. The destructive duo usually have guests
ranging from A1M staffers to bands (Made Alive) and musicians like Dean
Rebhorn from Follower and Matt Hanna from Lastwatch.
   Occasionally one or more of them will pop on to do some LIVE radio
broadcasts, but even when it is not LIVE, our daily rotation features a wide
variety of amazing music in every genre. It may go from acoustic folk music in
one song, to the next song being hardcore, then to rap.... you never know until
you check it out.
