Are Christian rock bands entertainment or ministry? The answer is yes. Last night was my first time inside the Crystal Ballroom and the reason was to hear Relient K. I’m well outside their target audience, but my daughter, Abbie, is the kind of person who bought their latest CD the day it was released. I had a smile on my face as teens in Portland, Oregon, sang along with guys who started in Canton, Ohio. The packed crowd of standing, jumping young people knew the band’s lyrics and they loved every moment. I believe Relient K has a ministry that goes beyond just wholesome entertainment. But if wholesome entertainment was all they provided, even that would be a ministry.
