Our Savior’s Lutheran Church, 909 W. 33rd St., Sioux Falls, SD.  

Mark your calendars for October 21, 2017 when Prison Congregations of America will host a concert by Rachel Kurtz. Rachel has a powerful voice and sings gospel and old church hymns with a powerful voice. 

Rachel Kurtz is an incredible singer/songwriter from Minneapolis, with a beautiful voice and an amazing story. Rachel shares personal testimonies of tragedy and triumph with a vulnerability that captivates her audience. She has performed at the last three ELCA Youth Gatherings and has had the opportunity to travel to Africa, Germany and India with her music ministry. Her song “Make A Difference,” unveiled at the 2012 ELCA Youth Gathering, has become a widespread sensation sung by praise bands, youth groups, and school choirs from coast to coast. She has a strong desire to make a difference in the world through her music and a passion for global justice. 

Listen to Rachel!
