VISION AND HISTORY:
THE STORY- WHAT IS OUR PURPOSE? Joel 2:28
LifeThirst Restore Me Tour
LifeThirst Worship, Concert & Evangelistic Outreach Ministry is a fun gathering in unity for all ages with Laura Kaczor and LifeThirst Band from Nashville. Our prayer for those that come is an encounter with the presence and person of the Lord Jesus Christ and His love, and the Holy Spirit’s Living Water that is the only thing that satisfies all of our thirsts and restores us. Our passion is for this to happen at as young of an age as possible as we believe it is life-changing and leads to life-long worshipers and disciples of Christ!
Laura and LifeThirst Band lead familiar worship songs along with original songs and her stories behind them, and a clear Gospel message is always shared with an opportunity to accept Christ and a time of prayer. The event may be with or without an outside speaker or guests. LifeThirst partners with churches, ministries, schools and colleges with the vision for evangelism, revival and restoration to transform a generation for Christ in America, one person, one youth, one family, one school, one church, one region at a time!
LifeThirst has its roots in the youth focused Jesus Fest, which began as a grassroots vision in 2000 in PA that grew from 50 to unite 1000 from 150 churches and youth groups monthly, then quarterly for 7 years where Laura Kaczor was the worship leader along with local and national speakers and several thousand came to Christ or recommitted their lives to Him! All glory goes to God! (See videos below of past Jesus Fests and speakers, or on her you tube channel LauraKaczor7).
In 2010, the new name LifeThirst was inspired by Laura Kaczor (Stevens) and her husband Kelly Stevens and her band was formed from Nashville. They began the LifeThirst Tour and the 501c3 non-profit, Laura Kaczor Ministries, Inc. (See videos below of past LifeThirst events or on her you tube channel LauraKaczor7).
How Did It Begin?
Involved in music all of her life, Laura wrote her first song at age 10 for her neighbor dying of breast cancer that touched her greatly. Later her song writing greatly increased while attending the University of Pennsylvania where along with Jesus Fest every month, she led worship for CRU on campus and was part of UPENN’s Christian a capella group, Full Measure. She then moved to Nashville and has produced 4 albums of original songs with GRAMMY nominated and multi-Dove Award producers, John Carter Cash, Don Koch and the latest album, Restore Me, was produced by Ian Eskelin (Francesca Battistelli, Sidewalk Prophets). Ian is a GRAMMY nominated, two-time Dove Award Producer of the Year. Songwriters on the album were Laura Kaczor Stevens and Amy Lewis Strother.
Laura has had 6 songs reach the Top 20-25 Billboard Chart, and she was awarded a Top 10 New Female Christian Singer by NewReleaseToday in 2012. One of her latest singles, “Greater” from the Restore Me Album, is being played on 94 radio stations nationally and internationally. Her songs are played in Canada, Ireland, Scotland, Australia, Netherlands, UK, Phillipines, USSR, Hungary, Albania and more!
Since the first release of Restore Me, Laura has had a time of sabbatical for the arrival of their two children, and the successful open heart surgery for their son. Now, Laura and Kelly and the LifeThirst Band and Team desire to share their message of hope and restoration on the LifeThirst Restore Me Tour, for they truly know first hand that only God can RESTORE!

“I had a life-changing encounter with the Lord my senior year in high school starting first in our youth group, then at Creation Festival, a huge Christian music festival held annually in Pennsylvania. My youth group organized the trip, and at the time, I had never really experienced any concentrated amounts of modern worship. I met God in those moments, very intimately, and I experienced how worship (through music, my passion!) can bring people closer to the heart of God. It was transformative, and I decided then that I wanted to use my gifts to serve God and to bring others close to Him, the way I experienced it.
Music is a great disarmer and a great unifyer bringing together all generations and all denominations. Jesus prayed 4 times in John 17 that we would be one, as He and the Father are one, and that is how the world would know that the Father has sent Him. LifeThirst is for anyone thirsting for something only God can satisfy. We pray you will find it here in the person of Jesus Christ!”
-Love, Laura and Kelly
"Thank you so much for coming to our area Sunday night for the LifeThirst. I can't even begin to explain what a night like that did for me, and many others I’m sure! There are no words to describe it. Basically God was there. God shook the very ground we stood on. He made His presence known and it was a beautiful thing to see. LifeThirst was a night in which God's power, love and grace were so evident! My yearning for prayer was as strong as it was at Passion Conference. God broke so many people and then lifted them up. ♥Keep spreading His Word and reviving the fire in us all!" - Janine Truppay, University of Valley Forge
"The LifeThirst was a breakthrough that I have desperately needed in my life... I want to be a youth pastor and for a while I was running from that call... words cannot express my thanks....Laura, I feel like you stole my diary by the way... your lyrics wrecked me.... thank you!!!" – Nicole Berkibile, University of Valley Forge
