Jars of Clay musical guest for Faith Night tonight at Greer
Jars Of Clay got its start in 1990 in a dorm room on the campus of Greenville (Ill.) College. The band received national recognition when it won the Gospel Music Association Spotlight Competition in 1994. Since then, the band has won three Grammys, nine Dove awards, and sold over five million records.
The group uses its youthful spirit and creative risk-taking style to give its audience a unique style of Christian music.
They founded Blood: Water Mission in 2002 after lead singer Dan Haseltine visited Africa and came back with a plan to provide blood free of HIV and water free of parasites and bacteria. The mission began with the 1000 Wells Project, a plan to have a thousand new wells built in Africa.
