Theme: I Choose Compassion
Music: Bread of Stone
Sioux City-based and ministry-centered Bread of Stone takes their name from a vision of being unfit, then transformed, to be used for God's work. Having toured with a veritable 'Who's Who' of major CCM artists, including: Newsboys, Superchick, Sanctus Real, Petra, Buildin 429, and several others. Bread of Stone has matured in their music and message and maintained their focus as an indie band solely at God's directions. The band's fifth album release "Hold the Light"deftly incorporates rock, pop, and praise. The album is the most definitive musical snapshot yet of Bread of Stone and their ministry. Off-stage, Ben and Bill Kristijanto founded "The Light Project"--their ministry in Indonesia, the country they called home for nine years, to empower those who are not afraid to carry the light of Jesus into the darkness, even when faced with persecution.
