Canadian born Dan Bremnes is a multi-award winning singer-songwriter, husband and father, and one of the hottest names in Christian music today.

Dan has won a host of awards and accolades, including the 2016 Juno Contemporary Christian/Gospel Album of the Year Award. With a passion and talent for music since age ten, it was a six-month mission’s trip in Australia with YWAM that forged his desire to write music that reaches people on a spiritual level.
As he was pursuing his professional dreams, Bremnes faced the tragic news that his mother was killed in a car accident. “I found myself in a very dark place, and for the first time in my life I realized I need Jesus as much as someone who’s never known Him needs Him… it was tough but it was also amazing because I realized that He's there for me too,” he says.
 
Dan will be performing free shows in the North Island sharing his music and heart for those living in poverty and his experience of visiting child sponsorship projects run by Tearfund’s partner Compassion, in the Dominican Republic.

Don’t miss this chance to experience an evening of music and stories that welcome you to engage deeply with the heart of God.
