The Rescue Mission is excited to announce its first ever Light the Night Concert Event! Light the Night is The Rescue Mission’s evening of worship and celebration at Foellinger Theatre in downtown Fort Wayne. This will be a time to reflect on the amazing work God is doing at The Rescue Mission with musical performances by award-winning contemporary Christian artists Matthew West and Riley Clemmons 

Matthew West is a five-time GRAMMY® nominee, NSAI’s 2022 Songwriter-Artist of the Year, ASCAP’s 2023 Golden Note Award recipient, and a multiple ASCAP Christian Music Songwriter/Artist of the Year winner. He has 15 studio albums under his belt, the latest released in 2023, a double album - MY STORY YOUR GLORY. Composed of 22 tracks, the first part of the double album, MY STORY, embodies the countless stories fans have shared with the songwriter over the years as well as personal experiences and the second part, YOUR GLORY, marks his first official Gospel worship album. West's most recent single "Don't Stop Praying" released earlier this year marks his biggest streaming single debut in West’s 20-year career. He is also passionate about providing hope and healing through the power of prayer and story. Along with his father, Pastor Joe West, they founded popwe, a non-profit ministry helping others to craft, share, and live a more meaningful life.

Light the Night is a family-friendly event for all ages at Foellinger Theater. Doors will open at 5:00PM and the concert will start at 6:00PM. Local food trucks Ziffles, Baby Got Smack, and Mercadito will be there and open, serving food and drinks.
