JPM 5k & Musik Festival + Plus Family Fun Walk

We are getting excited for our big annual fundraiser / event, the JPM 5k & Musik Festival (+ Family Fun Walk).  There are several great ways to help us and partner with us this year.  Would you please prayerfully consider helping in at least one of the following ways:

1. PRAY!!

Prayer is powerful! Please pray for the runners, for the event itself, for Doug Holliday as he preaches, for the audience to hear and receive the message, and for Jesus to be lifted high.  Please pray for Tim Timmons and the other musicians, and for the event organizers.  And please pray for good weather.

2. Make a Financial Contribution

This event is expensive to put on (even though it is supposed to be a fundraiser).  We want it to be so much more than just a fundraiser, we want it to be an event that blesses the community and brings people into the kingdom.  Any financial contribution made to JPM will help make this event a success!

3. Become (or Help Us Find) an Event Sponsor

We are looking for businesses that would like to partner with us by becoming an Event Sponsor.  If you are interested, please contact Jeff.

4. Participate in the Action

Sign up for the 5k or Family Fun Walk (or both)!  Registration is now open at

5. Volunteer

We are looking for people who would be interested in volunteering to serve at the event.  There are many different ways to serve and help out.  If you are interested and willing, please contact Jeff.

6. Spread the Word

To help make this event a success, please join us in spreading the word.  Social media, word of mouth, or even hanging up posters around town or at your workplace could make a big difference!  Flyers can be printed from

JPM 5k & Musik Fest Coming Back to Fredericksburg July 30

The 3rd annual JPM 5k & Musik Festival (+ Family Fun Walk!) is coming back to Fredericksburg, OH in 2016!  We will be using the same great course as 2014 (so many of you said you loved it!) but we will be changing a few other aspects of the event.  Major changes include:

  • We are moving the race from late September to the middle of summer!  This year’s event will take place on July 30.
  • We are moving the event from a morning race & afternoon musik festival to an evening race & musik festival! Registration will start at 4:30pm, followed by the 1 mile Family Fun Walk at 5:30pm, and the epic 5k at 6pm.
  • We are hiring a professional timing company so results and awards can be posted and given away promptly at 7pm.
  • We are excited to announce that we will be finishing the musik festival with national recording artist, TIM TIMMONS!  This free community concert will start at 8pm.
