Praise Band is the story of one music minister’s struggle for acceptance in a small town church still clinging to its traditional roots. When Pastor James Monroe brings Matt Young aboard as Crossroads Community Church’s new worship leader, Matt finds opposition all around him. Led by church treasurer Wayne Wilson, the congregation staunchly resists Matt’s guitar-driven, modern style of worship. Can the new minister convince Crossroads Community Church to accept his style of music and win their hearts before it’s too late?
A joyous celebration of life, community, and music, Praise Band will ring true to anyone familiar with long-standing congregations set in their ways or resistance to change. Filled with stirring songs that glorify God, this film proves that perseverance pays off and that shaking up the status quo can be a blessing in disguise.
