Why Hello!
We are a Christian Rock & Worship band from Washington state called The Incandescent . God's been doing some pretty awesome things surrounding our music lately. We've had the opportunity to write, record, and travel around the Pacific Northwest for the last 6 years and things are beginning to grow to a more national level!

On a recent trip home from Creation West  & Praise Fest  in Canada, our 1999 Dodge Ram Van met an untimely end. We are currently in the midst of a heavy travel/ministry season and are looking for help in purchasing a new van to continue reaching people with the love of Jesus.

Unfortunately, we are not in a position to go out and purchase a new or used vehicle, and thats where this GoFundMe account comes into play. If you've been impacted by Christian or worship music in some way would you consider partnering with us in a new vehicle purchase?

It's been amazing to watch what God has done through the events we've been a part of! Students have met Jesus, men & women have been restored, lives have been changed and the list goes on & on! We don't want in any way to take the credit for these things, but simply recognize that God allowed us to be a part of reaching people!

Over the past couple years the band's been blessed to play with TobyMac , Third Day , Kutless , Colton DixonCrowder , For King & Country , & Switchfoot ! We've also been been featured at Creation Fest  (West) Spirit Fest  (Texas) Dove Fest  (Oregon) & Son Fest (Utah). We're looking forward to where the road ahead may take us and we'd love for you to be a part of the journey!

Thank you for taking time to check out our campaign! If you decide to help out, just know that every little bit helps us in HUGE ways. Thank you for your time and for investing into THE KINGDOM

Hey all you ramblers! We are so grateful for all who have shown great generosity in our pursuit of a new van! We have found a van that meets all our requirements (pictured below) BUT we are still in need of some funding. We hate needing to ask for help in this area but we can't do this alone. We would appreciate any contributions large or small and thank you in advance! (Note: The price on this killer vehicle is about half of what we've been anticipating.)

Hola Ramblers!

Just wanted to take a moment to thank everyone who has donated or shared this campaign with their friends! We're so thankful for your support and are trusting God in this season!

We also wanted to share an awesome story with you of how what we do has touched someones life dramatically!

Actually, we'll let them tell it! This is our friend Britni who lives in Oregon, and she recently posted this online.

"@britters1020 When I took this picture two years ago, I was in a terrible place. Battling my eating disorder and depression were starting to overwhelm me... and I was about to give up on life. But then I went to High Voltage Fest and decided unless something awesome happened I was done living life. Well, God definitely has a sense of humor because the band @theincandescent played that year. Every single song they sang was about living life for Jesus. And I took that as a sign, went back to counseling and got back on track to being happy. And now even though life isn't easy I can truly say I'm happy with who I am as a person. And my battle scars are just what make me... me. #battlingdepression #alwaysontheroadtorecovery #formerbulimic #transformationtuesdays #lifeisworthliving #thankyoujesus"

When we read this it was so hard to fight back the tears... To know that what we are doing is making an impact on peoples lives. Music is a powerful tool that when used for good can change the world... We desire to be world changers and ambassadors of hope. Will you consider helping us to do this?

Blessings,

- The Incandescent -
