Jesus answered her, "If you knew the gift of God and who it is that asks you for a drink, you would have asked Him and He would have given you Living Water - JOHN 4:10
Whoever drinks of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst. but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life - John 4:14
What is LifeThirst and what is the vision?
Have you ever longed for a time of refreshment for your church, your pastors, your staff, but also would like to host a powerful worship and evangelistic outreach to the community that would lead to salvations and revival and restoration and setting a region on fire?
The LifeThirst Team would love to come in and take care of everything for you!
Laura Kaczor and LifeThirst Worship Team from Nashville partners with churches, ministries, pastors, youth pastors, schools, colleges, conferences or retreats to bring a LifeThirst Worship Event to your area, or bring the LifeThirst Worship Team to your event to reach everyone who 'thirsts' for more of God!
“LifeThirst is a worship, concert and evangelistic outreach ministry that my husband Kelly and I started to incorporate our love of music and our heart for young people and families. The mission is to see restoration, transformation and revival of this generation through the unconditional love of Jesus Christ and knowing who we are in Him!
I had a life-changing encounter with the Lord my senior year in high school. I was 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 – everyone loves music, especially young people. So, if you can create an atmosphere of fun, where people of all ages experience awesome music and worship... it creates a great platform to deliver solid Biblical teaching and the Gospel. The concert setting draws people, the presence of God through worship captures their hearts, and the Gospel and the Word of God saves, delivers, equips and transforms them! I have seen those that become true worshipers, in spirit and in truth, love the Lord with all their heart and ultimately become His servants, and it lasts...for life. The younger the age this happens the better!
LifeThirst is a great unifier. Jesus prayed 4 times in John 17 that we would be one. There are no denominational affiliations, so it’s brought together all ages from many different walks. It has its roots in a 7 year monthly, then quarterly youth, young adult and all ages event in PA (Jesus Fest) where I led worship and we had guest speakers and testimonies, that grew from 50 to 1000 uniting 150 churches. We’ve seen thousands come to Christ and many more recommit their lives to Him, and we’ve seen revival breakout! Rather than a one-time event, a regular event can truly lead to spiritual development and transformation of an entire region. And it provides an attractive and consistent evangelistic outreach. It’s been powerful, and we hope to bring LifeThirst across the U.S. and abroad!”
– Laura Kaczor Stevens and Kelly Stevens

"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
