Stratford Festival of Praise

About Us

Stratford Festival of Praise is a movement of Christians united in the common purpose of Diligently Seeking God!, knowing that God is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him (Hebrews 11:6). We want to see revival in our city and we believe that this can be accomplished as those who call on the Lord come together to lift up the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. For the last several years we have come together for a weekend event each fall, and an expanding number of additional events held throughout the year.

Our Vision

Our vision is not just to have a Festival of Praise but to see our city become a Festival of Praise . . . a praise-filled community saturated with God’s presence – a reality that we believe can only occur when Stratford and area Christians unite in wholehearted surrender to our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ! Our hearts’ desire is to see 30,000 people living to praise God!

OUR CORE VALUES

Unity In the Body of Christ

We are commanded to love the Lord, but also to love each other.  God is glorified when His children join together in pursuit of Him.

Passionate Praise and Prayer

We’re all in when it comes to praise and prayer.  The scriptures tell us that God blesses those who diligently seek Him, so we want to do it with our whole hearts.

Repentance and Revival

“If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and heal their land (2 Chronicles 7:14  NIV).

Humble Spirit-Led Service

“Whoever wants to become great among you must be your servant, and whoever wants to be first must be your slave – just as the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many (Matthew 20:26-28; NIV).”

Stratford Music

As we worship the Lord, He places songs in our hearts.  Our desire is to give Stratford worship songwriters a venue where they can share their music.  If you would like to submit a file, please forward your file in a compressed format to mail@stratfordfestivalofpraise.com.  Please note that we cannot post copyrighted material on the site without the express consent of the copyright holder.
