However, the credentials held by the managing partners is secondary to their passion for celebrating the true origins of the music of the Jesus movement: the One Way Experience.
40 years after Explo ’72–the revolutionary gathering of over 100,000 Christians in Dallas in the summer of 1972–it is the goal of One Way Entertainment Group to create awareness, pay tribute, and embrace the artistry of the groundbreaking contemporary artists that began this movement–a movement thats still in motion.
One Way Experience is a return to the heart of where this life-changing music began. It is a reunion of artists and a rekindling of hearts. The team believes that God has changed lives and will continue to do so through these artists and their songs, and that souls will be reconnected to a passion for Jesus that can change the world.
