The lyrics of their Rap and Message are calling a new generation to embrace the life-altering power of God's love.
We, referred to as ONS (501c3), are a group of friends who are dedicated to share our lives and talents to encourage and point youth to a fulfilling life lead by the love and freedom of Jesus Christ. Our team is comprised of professional musicians, college athletes, filmmakers, graphic designers, youth leaders and teachers (all who have strong backgrounds in ministry). As friends, we decided to throw "parties" that we call "More than a One Night Stand," where we could express our passion, share our talents, and encourage a life lived for "more than."
We live in a MTV generation. Today you can't find a television show or song that isn't bleeped out or blurred. Truth is we want what is real. Our generation wants truth, unedited reality.
In an explicit generation one night stand presents the gospel of Jesus Christ explicitly. Plain up front truth of our sin and His perfect plan of salvation so that we can spend eternity with Him forever.
O|N|S is exploding a movement of artists and innovators desiring to worship their Creator.
One Night Stand is a movement started by a group of guys that grew tired of watching the culture search blindly for the next best thing.
We would watch countless Friday nights pass as our peers searched for bigger and better highs. Each weekend they found themselves less satisfied than the weeks before. The problem is without Jesus Christ people will never be fulfilled, and He is not typically invited to your average "Friday Night Party."
Consequently, we decided to throw an alternative party with a "more than" theme and Jesus at the center. Come party with us!
We want to take ONS to churches and college campuses around the country and wake up our peers to stand and have fun in Christ's name. Jesus wants us to live passionately, something that I feel gets lost in the idea of religion.
More than a One Night Stand redefines what it means to party. An environment that is laced with destructive behavior and selfish intent is now being exploded open with grace and truth.
My role on the team is handling all the production. Lights, sound, environment, flyers, design, etc. My heart in this is to do everything as good, or better than the world [a club or party] does it down the street. We are called to be excellent.
O|N|S has showed me a new way to look at Christianity.
One Night Stand is a 501 (c) 3 and all donations are tax deductable.
