Christian band Inhabited to perform free concert at Wayland Baptist University

Release Date: February 7, 2008

PLAINVIEW – Wayland Baptist University and Stonebridge Fellowship church are hosting a free concert with the Christian band Inhabited on Wednesday, Feb. 13 at 7 p.m. in Harral Memorial Auditorium.

The Houston-based band plays everything from worship music to Christian rock and reaches a wide variety of audiences with their message. The band was officially formed in 2003 by brother and sister set Marcus and Sara Acker, after the pair had led worship at their youth group and played for a youth lock-in a few years earlier. Now, the band includes Sara as lead vocalist, Marcus on the guitar, friends Charlie Harper on drums and Chad Carouthers on bass.

Their first independent project, Innerview, was a product of their passion to make a lasting impact with their music nationwide. Their career was fueled when a local deejay on a Conroe, Texas, radio station handed their album to Nashville promoter Kyle Fenton, who helped propel the single “Rescue Me” into the Top 10 on Christian Rock radio.

Soon, the band attracted attention from record labels, and their album The Revolution was launched as the debut release on Fervent Records in 2005, produced by Monroe Jones, who shaped the careers of notable artists like Third Day, Chris Rice, Mark Schultz and Ginny Owens. They are set to release the album Love later this month.

Inhabited said its inspiration is a mission to connect with this generation, combined with a passion for music and a burning desire to reach beyond the surface to the heart of its audience.

“Never before in my life have I been more certain about where I’m supposed to be,” said Sara, who has long had a heart for missions. “It is our destiny to breathe a message of life into this generation.”

Area churches are encouraged to bring groups to attend the concert on campus.
