RYFO is a ministry to musicians of all backgrounds, beliefs and genres of music.
We exist to eliminate the cultural divide between the Church and musician community by building bridges of service and relationship.
We envision a global Gospel movement of hope that transforms musicians’ lives and influences the lives of the fans who follow them. We believe this movement will spread through an awakening of faith, identity and purpose among musicians.

WHAT WE DO

Serving Practical Needs

Since 2009 our growing network of Christian host families has provided Radical Hospitality to thousands of touring musicians. Artists that are weary from weeks or months on the road are finding spaces where they don’t have to perform or impress, but rather they are able to safely rest and simply be.

Developing Trusted Relationships

In September 2016, we launched our first Artist Chaplain team in Phoenix, AZ to provides Soul Care and Discipleship to local and touring musicians. As this program expands to other cities around the world, a growing number of musicians will be invited into reflective spaces to wrestle with questions about faith, identity and purpose.

Forming Strategic Partnerships

Some of the musicians we work with are seeking to further their missional calling. We individually resource and equip these artists in order to sustain and multiply the Gospel impact of their cultural influence.
