New Orleans, La. (May 15, 2015)----- When God's Not Dead became the most successful Christian film of all time in 2014, the movie's producer, Troy Duhon, set out to launch the same concept theme with The Millennial Tour 2015. The national tour is currently scheduled to visit 14 cities across the country during the summer, with the first date taking place May 15th at New Orleans' Saenger Theatre where three of the tour's ten artists will open for for KING & COUNTRY. The summer tour dates include several major festival performances, including all five Creation Festivals, Lifest and AliveFest, among many others. The Fall segment of The Millennial Tour 2015 will visit 25 cities in 13 states, and an announcement with all details will be made later this summer.

The tour features Christian artists from the Millennial Generation, with the full roster including: Billboard-charting Pop-Dance artist and actress, Abigail Duhon; winner of 2015 We Love Christian Music Awards (Next Big Thing category) and Billboard charting Pop/R&B artist and actor, Spencer Kane; 2015 Stellar Award nominee and Billboard charting Gospel R&B artist, Jor'Dan Armstrong; CCM/Worship artist, Jamison Strain; GRAMMY®-nominated Hip Hop artist, Tru Serva; Pop/Rock sister duo, LoveCollide; Urban/Hip Hop recording artist, JG; Pop/R&B artist, Dawna; New Pop/R&B Group, Outcast Republic; and Christian Urban artist, Johnnie Rep.

Also featured via video throughout the event will be Dr. Rice Broocks, author of the book God's Not Dead, who will share four key foundational teachings about apologetics (defending Christianity), as well as the Director of The Human Right, Heath Adamson.

After seeing the tremendous feedback from the Christian community about how important it is to help the younger generation of believers defend their faith, Duhon and Broocks developed a concept of taking the theme on the road through The Millennial Tour 2015.

"We watch our kids being raised in church, and in their teenage years many of them lose interest or aren't able to really defend what they believe when confronted by atheists or agnostics," explains Duhon. "Rice and I feel that the millennial generation, specifically high school and college age students, are needing specific teaching about how to defend their faith against scientific debate, but through an event and from peers they may be more willing to hear it from. The Millennial Tour 2015 combines music and teaching with a two-and-a-half hour event that will leave the students wanting to dig deeper into why they are Christians and why there is a God. Plus, they'll get to see the next generation of Christian artists perform and share how they are defending their faith every day."

"Millennials aren't looking for formulas for faith, they're looking for authenticity," adds Adamson. "They're looking for absolute truth. It's not about tradition for them, or for anyone, it's about knowing the truth. We hope to help teens and young adults learn that they both have the same fundamental human right, which is to know the truth about their origins and what truth is. We believe this is through a savior called Jesus Christ."

God's Not Dead created a national stir, among atheists and Christians alike, when the film's direct approach to the question of an omnipotent God as creator of all things was based on real-life college situations facing Christian students. The film used several references from Broocks' book of the same title. Set in a classroom at a university, the movie revealed the difficulties Christians face with defending their belief in God and the Bible in the midst of an education system and society that explains away God in lieu of science. The highly-anticipated sequel to God's Not Dead is expected to release Spring 2016, marking the big screen debut of many of the artists appearing on The Millennial Tour 2015. Fans who attend the Fall tour will get a first look at the trailer for the upcoming film. Centered around a group of high school students, the movie explores the historical debate of Jesus' existence in human form on earth.
