Chris Tomlin’s Good Friday Nashville Concert Expands Audience With Global Livestream

By Movieguide® Contributor

Chris Tomlin’s 7th annual Good Friday Nashville concert will reach a global audience this year, streaming on YouTube and Facebook. 

“There is a passage in Hebrews 13 that I return to when I think about this night,” Tomlin said. “It says, ‘Through Jesus, therefore, let us continually offer to God a sacrifice of praise–the fruit of lips that openly profess his name. And do not forget to do good and to share with others, for with such sacrifices God is pleased.’” 

“That truly is the heart of Good Friday Nashville,” he continued, “for all streams of the church to come together, celebrate what God has done and is continuing to do in our city, and then give back to those most vulnerable in the community.” 

Since the first Good Friday Nashville in 2017, the annual event has continued to set records with sold-out concerts at the longest-running annual charity-related concert at Bridgestone Arena. 

The concert was moved online in 2020 and 2021 reaching 32 countries through television and radio partners. Last year it was able to return as an in-person event and this year, it will reintroduce the online aspect alongside the in-person venue, once again allowing the concert to be heard around the world. 

The money raised by Good Friday Nashville benefits the foster care and adoption crisis through Tomlin’s nonprofit ‘For Others.’  

Best-selling author and pastor Max Lucado will return to deliver this year’s Easter message.  

In the past, Tomlin has surprised attendees with special guests like Rascal Flatts, Lady A, We The Kingdom, Lauren Daigle, and Hillsong United. He has already confirmed to be joined by Blessing Offor and Jenn Johnson (Bethel Music) and has hinted at another surprise guest. 

The concert will kick off at 7 pm central this Friday, April 7th. The event is presented by K-LOVE, Air1, The Fish, and WAY_FM. 

Movieguide® has previously reported on Good Friday Nashville: 

Christian music artist Chris Tomlin announced the return of the annual Good Friday Nashville concert after the event was canceled the last two years due to the COVID-19 pandemic. 

The Grammy award-winning artist started the event in 2017 and quickly became one of the most attended Christian concerts, selling out each year. 

Good Friday Nashville is set to take place at Bridgestone Arena on April 15, 2022. 

“After two years of having to worship together virtually due to COVID, I am so excited to be coming back to Bridgestone Arena, live and in person, for Good Friday Nashville,” Tomlin said on his website. “What an incredible opportunity to gather again as a church and as a local community to remember the hope we have in Jesus because of His sacrifice on the cross.” 

The money raised by the concert goes directly to Tomlin’s non-profit organization ‘For Others,’ which seeks to provide aid for children in the foster system. 

“Good Friday Nashville is one of the most rewarding things I have ever been a part of. When this event began 5 years ago, I had a dream it might become an annual thing… a tradition for family and friends to come together, to celebrate, to remember,” Tomlin said. “As we got closer to that first Good Friday, I felt a need to make this night more than just a concert. My wife, Lauren, and I had felt a calling to shed light on the foster care and adoption crisis in our nation. It was through that and our first Good Friday that our non-profit, For Others, came to be. And so, each year Good Friday Nashville benefits helping children find forever homes across our state. So, when you join us for this powerful night of worship… know that you are a part of making a difference in so many lives.”
