O2 Kalispell

Four years ago, in 2011, we hosted an O2 Experience in Kalispell, so wrapping up this tour in the same place was super special. Looking back at how much has changed and all God has done from then until now is astonishing. From the event branding to the execution of the evening to how much our team has grown, and most importantly the lives God has changed (over 4,000 decisions for Christ at O2 since that 2011 event!), it’s staggering what we get to be a part of.

We hosted O2 Kalispell in the historic Liberty Theatre downtown, shutting down the block in front of the venue and filling the street with food vendors, local partner organizations and a fun, street festival style vibe. The coolest thing about this space was seeing people of all ages fill the outside seating to watch the event on a giant LED screen. People filled the chairs, sat on the curb, leaned against building walls and stood to hear the gospel and God’s plan for their sex lives. The Liberty Theatre and our overflow space in the Strand Theatre were also filled.

There are so many incredible churches in the Flathead Valley, and it was great to see their support and encouragement for this event. We saw churches and organizations from several different communities bring groups with them. One of the things we emphasize as we do these events is those who make commitments to Christ get plugged into local churches. It’s encouraging to see the body of Christ working together for His glory.

The vibe of the whole event was high-energy and super fun – a great way to end our summer O2 run. Throughout the course of the three-city Montana tour we saw 160 decisions for Christ and 806 commitments to strength and honor. We love taking the O2 Experience on the road – across the country and someday across the world – but there’s no place like the Last Best Place.
