Jon Neufeld to perform at Comox Pentacostal Sunday

Singer, songwriter, guitarist, recording artist and worship leader Jon Neufeld will be performing and leading worship in the Comox Valley for a Community Night of Worship happening Sunday Oct. 18 6:30 p.m. at Comox Pentecostal Church (1919 Guthrie Rd – Comox).

The evening is in partnership with Food for the Hungry Canada.

Neufeld, formerly of the band Starfield, began his tour Sept. 11 in Ontario. His concerts – and morning and evening times of worship – will feature songs from his new album, “Burn Bright.” and well known “Starfield” songs as well.

After recording seven albums in 15 years, Neufeld recently settled in Portland, Oregon with his wife and two young sons.

Neufeld describes the album as somewhat atypical.

“It’s a pretty happy album overall,” he explains. “Not necessarily what I intended. I think my bent is to write slow, moody, brooding, existential music. But this is a compilation of the last two years, during which I’ve been learning to give and receive the love of God in a new way. These songs are a reflection of that, and also a reflection of what it has meant for me to be connected to a local church. Something I’d really missed over the previous decade.” These songs are upbeat, lyrical and represent emotions that point to the goodness of God and His unfailing love.

“I am so excited to not just put on a concert, but to join with the body of Christ in pursuing the presence and peace of the Holy Spirit through song, prayer, and unity,” says Neufeld. “All are welcome.”

Advance Tickets $10 can be purchased from Comox Pentecostal Church or Courtenay Fellowship Baptist Church. Tickets will be available at the door as well. For more information call 250-339-4530 or go to www.jonneufeldmusic.com/
