The Love Loud tour is comprised of AsWeAre, WeAreVessel, and Silversyde. This tour will be focused on presenting the love of Christ loudly through His acceptance of us just AsWeAre. He created us to be who we are and we have to learn to love ourselves in all of our imperfections and short comings. We have to realize that we have to see ourselves through the eyes of Christ if we want to impact this world of hate and intolerance that we face everyday. This tour is sponsored by Rock For Life.
