June 22, 2019 @ 5:30 pm - 8:30 pm

| free


417 is facing broken-heartedness. Join Christian music artist John Tibbs and Victory Mission for a night of worship to seek restoration for our community!

This family-friendly concert is free and open to the public! Come and worship alongside Victory Mission Restoration Program men and other families as we praise God for his faithfulness and ask him to redeem what has been broken in our own lives and the lives of those around us.

Doors will open at 5:30 at Schweitzer United Methodist’s Outreach Center (2747 E Sunshine St, Springfield, MO 65804). Local artist, James Kyle Lacy will open for us at 6:30, followed by John Tibbs. Victory Mission Coffee and Street Chef Catering pastries will be for sale throughout the evening.


Hailing from the midwest, John Tibbs has built his success the old-school way: playing shows, writing great songs, and truly caring about those he meets along the way. Tibbs was catapulted into the music industry by a successful release with Noisetrade.com. Through that platform, John developed an online community of more than 100,000 supporters who helped crowd-fund his independent recordings, and it wasn’t long before he’d piqued the interest of major record labels.

In 2016, John released his debut full-length, Dead Man Walking, to great critical acclaim. Reviewers said about the album, “with shades of Bruce Springsteen, John Mellencamp and Creedence Clearwater Revival, the heartland rock Tibbs traffics in is just right for the weightier, darker side of the redemption story.”

Following the success of his 2016 debut record which garnered a Top-20 AC (Christian) single and a Dove Award nomination in the Rock/Contemporary Album of the Year category, John partnered with ToneTree and Bethel/Heritage Media to release his follow up, Heartland, crowd-funded through his online community via PledgeMusic to continued great critical acclaim.

In 3 years, John has toured over 500 dates all over the U.S. amidst these releases as well as co-penning songs with writers and artists like Dave Barnes, Matt Maher, Michael Farren, and Paul Mabury. Be on the lookout, as he does not seem to be slowing down anytime soon

John currently resides in Nashville with his wife, Emily and their dog, Lady.


Our Restoration Program is an 18-month residential rehabilitation program. Men come to us after living on the streets, spending time in prison, or deciding that they want to live free of addiction. We take a holistic approach to restoration, and our program is designed to transform men’s lives by working through spiritual, personal, relational, vocational, and financial benchmarks.
