For the first time, a nonprofit organization dedicated to ministering to professional musicians finds itself on the Vans Warped Tour. 

A team of volunteers from RYFO will be stationed at select tour dates this summer to offer their services to the performing bands—which over the life of the tour features 126 different bands, including well-known mainstream acts Mayday Parade, 3OH!3, All Time Low, Bowling for Soup, and Yellowcard.

In addition, several Christian bands are part of the lineup, including The Devil Wears Prada, Icon For Hire, Anberlin and For Today.

On the tour, “our volunteers will also be available to encourage and pray for the bands,” writes RYFO intern “Kiah.” 

RYFO—which is short for “Rock Your Face Off”—has served the needs of thousands of touring musicians with practical assistance, free meals, beds to sleep in, care packages, prayer and friendship. 

The organization also will take the opportunity during Warped Tour to introduce the artists to its new mobile web application, which connects musicians with RYFO resources offered by its network of missionaries.

Though RYFO still holds a significant desire to see Christ-following musicians on the road cared for, “God has also deepened our desire to see the Good News of Jesus' love shown and shared with all musicians (local and touring) that do not have a personal relationship with him, and those that may have been disenfranchised from the Church for one reason or another,” reads RYFO’s website. 

“We long to be a part of the Father's reconciliation plan, while continuing to see the needs of Christ-following musicians supported as well. Our heart is to see musicians discipled and to see God's glory reflected through their lives,” it continues.

RYFO will be on hand at seven Warped Tour stops, including San Antonio (June 14), Albuquerque (June 17), Pomona, Calif. (June 20), Ventura, Calif. (June 22), Chula Vista, Calif. (June 25), Maryland Heights, Mo. (July 2), and Atlanta (July 24).
