• Thank you so much for considering me to lead worship for your event! The following is a letter from my leadership. I greatly appreciate your time in reading this before officially sending your invitation. Thank you!

    Dear friends in Christ,

    We appreciate your role in revival and considering Bryan and Katie Torwalt to come and be a part of it. Bryan and Katie are valuable members of our team, here at Jesus Culture. As such, we are very protective of them and interested in their short and long-term success. So we have developed this set of expectations of what we consider requisite for them to come and lead worship at your event.

    You will need to budget for 6 people total (full band including Bryan and Katie). Bringing their team allows Bryan and Katie to be at there best and can focus on leading and ministering.

    Bryan and Katie/band typically fly out of Fresno or Sacramento, California on United Airlines. They will let you know the available ticket prices for economy and will buy the tickets themselves. They would need to be reimbursed as soon as possible as the tickets are on their personal credit cards, certainly before they leave for the trip.

    Bryan and Katie do not require a set amount or fee for their ministry. Obviously, we ask that you cover all of theirs and the band’s travel expenses (if you are bringing the band), which includes the airfare reimbursement, hotel, and food. We operate on a culture of honor and believe ministers are worthy of being blessed for the grace on their lives and their hard work. We know it is in all our hearts to live generously so an honorarium, which keeps in mind the number of band members brought along is encouraged.

    Please don’t misunderstand our heart. Bryan and Katie are great servants and wouldn’t mandate these guidelines for themselves, but we know them to be necessary and want to make sure we are covering them as they travel.

    If you are in agreement with all of this, the next step is to fill out the invitation form. If you do so, we are expecting that your decision makers be in agreement with all of the details of this letter. We will consider the invitations prayerfully and give approval if that seems good to the Lord.
