**4-Him and DeGarmo & Key to reunite for cruise audience!**

March 5, 2008

4HIM (Nashville, Tennessee) –March 5, 2008 – Still 11 months from its' January 22-26, 2009 sailing date from the port of Miami, Premier Christian Cruises' "K-LOVE Friends & Family Music Cruise 2009" is already full steam ahead towards its' annual launch—five days and four nights of ‘tropical family fun and relaxation’ with a unique blend of Christian music, inspiration, and ministry.

Living up to its’ annual reputation as one of Premier’s most popular events at sea, the January 28-February 1st 2008 K-LOVE Cruise gave more than 2,700 passengers who came to have fun, the added bonus of an onboard, hands-on opportunity to participate in the work of The James Fund. The cruise was blessed not only with the glorious tropical sun-drenched destination of Calica, Mexico but with the crowning addition of God’s provision of $100,000 in support funds for the on-going benefit of children in need in Mexico.

The James Fund is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization founded by Family Christian Stores in 2003 to meet the needs of widows and orphans in the communities it serves.

Notes Steve Biondo, corporate spokesperson for Family Christian Stores: “On the January K-LOVE cruise, we had a unique opportunity aboard ship to share the story of what God is doing through our ministry to benefit the orphans in Mexico. On previous cruises, we have seen orphans adopted, many of the cruise-goers have chosen to start orphan care ministries through their churches, and many have subsequently volunteered for hands-on work in the missions field. Thousands have made donations to the James Fund to bring hope to the needy with housing, daily care, education, and skills training to improve their lives in Jesus’ name. It’s been a tremendously powerful, refreshing and inspirational partnership—both for cruise-goers and for those organizing the cruise itself.”

Adds Mike Novak, President of K-LOVE Radio Network: "The invitation to a partnership several years ago between Premier Christian Cruises and K-LOVE to benefit the James Fund was the beginning of an incredible relationship. The ministry focus on all three fronts is identical. Our unique opportunity through radio is to reach-out and speak to literally millions of people at one time. The James Fund is very 'hands on' in their outreach to children--we feel that it has literally puts 'hands and feet' on the ministry heart of K-LOVE."

Ahead in ’09, Premier Christian Cruises is committed to the largest scale presentation yet for the ‘09 K-LOVE Friends & Family Music Cruise, orchestrating a move to the largest ship ever to host the event. Cruise-goers will enjoy their time at sea aboard the Carnival Cruiseline’s luxurious sea liner, Destiny, which will sail from Miami to Grand Turk Island on the January 22-26th itinerary.

Artists confirmed so far include: Building 429, Mandisa, Rush of Fools, Nicole C. Mullin, Phil Joel, Salvador, Brandon Heath, Annie Moses Band, Monk & Neagle, Phil Wickham, and Denver & The Mile High Orchestra. On an 'exclusive' note, Premier has also secured for cruise-goers highly anticipated reunion concerts by 4-HIM and Christian music pioneer duo, DeGarmo & Key--the only staging planned anywhere for either artist presentation. Best-selling Christian author, Karen Kingsbury is also confirmed as a speaker with additional music artists and speakers to be announced.
