One Night Stand combines club scene with faith

by Rebekah Bresee

Tomorrow night the Service Station will transform into a club, specifically a club bearing the message of God. One Night Stand, a movement which throws big parties focused on Jesus, started in San Diego and now tours the country.

“One Night Stand tours to different colleges, churches and venues around the country to share our passion and vision,” One Night Stand CEO Graham Saber said.

The outreach program was started to reach the party club culture. The event provides the same environment as a regular club, however it is based on Christian values.

“We throw a big party that has a message that there is more to life than a normal party scene,” Saber said. “There’s more to life than what culture tells us.”

ONS will land in Spokane with live Christian hip-hop and rap artists who will perform and share their testimonies.

Saber founded the event along with two of his friends. One of those friends is Austin Rovazzini, a Whitworth graduate assistant ministry intern and a member of the Awake team, a campus ministry.

“The main point of One Night Stand is to be a communication strategy,” Rovazzini said. “We want to provide an experience that is relevant and fun, but is for God.”

Rovazzini collaborated with his co-founders and his program connections at Whitworth to bring ONS to Spokane.

The free event will feature performances by three artists: Black Knight, Milliyon, and Saber, who is known as Marcus G on stage. He will be debuting his “Amen Mixtape” at the event. The night will conclude with a testimony from Rovazzini, as well as a message about what ONS stands for.

The event will be at the Service Station from 8 p.m. to 10 p.m.
