Christian music is a massive category of musicians from all kinds of genres and backgrounds that get lumped into one category simply because of the subject their songs are about.
Instead of hoping they’ll find it themself, there are dozens of ways you can introduce your secular friends to Christian music. These are some of the best options, and how you can carry them out!
Show Them Christian Music They Don’t Realize is Christian.
There’s plenty of Christian music you may not realize is Christian! Flyleaf’s song “All Around Me” saw international success in the punk and alternative music scene, without many realizing this group is a Christian alternative band.
Similarly, “Poet, Knight, King,” a soft song that’s become popular in DND and fantasy fandom circles, is another song that’s seen immense success without many realizing that this is a song by a Christian band called The Oh Hellos.
Other groups, like U2, have publicly called themselves Christian bands– which can allow you to show them as examples of Christian music being incredibly popular. This might sway your friends and loved ones into trying more Christian music.
Introduce Them to Styles Besides Christian Rock
There’s more to Christian music than just rock! Introduce your secular friends and loved ones to other styles of music; there are rappers that are Christian, as well as those that perform R&B, pop, and anything else you could want to find. Keeping the many countless genres open to them will allow them to connect better to the Christian music world and give them the opportunity to find music they enjoy.
Although Christian rock is fun and good, it’s not the only kind of Christian music out there, and it’s great to be able to explore the other opportunities.
Play-Off Their Personal Interests and Needs
Are they currently going through a breakup? Give them Christian music that’s aimed toward healing through Christ. Do they need something to perk them up and give them the energy to get through work and daily life? Give them Christian pop that will make them move and dance in celebration. If you can meet them where they’re at needs-wise, you’ll be able to spark an interest in Christian music they may have never found otherwise.
Invite Them to Fun Concerts and Events With Christian Music
The best way to inspire anyone to get into Christian music is to help them feel the energy you do when you listen to it. Taking them to concerts, live shows, and Christian music venues will encourage them to feel the energy of the crowd and possibly connect with the music on a deeper level. This can inspire them to look for more Christian music that makes them feel this way and possibly attend more concerts and live shows with you so they can continue to feel this energy.
Everyone Can Enjoy Christian Music
Christian music can be one of the best ways to connect with your religion while also enjoying the mellow and soothing tunes of bands you like. Share the music you love with those that matter in your life, and you’ll create another way to perfectly connect with them.
