"It always blows our minds that this happens," said Kyle Gagner, one of the organizers. "We're always blown away by what God can do."

Running since 2012, Off the Charts has attracted some of Christian music's top names while continuing to offer the entire event for free. This year, Tenth Avenue North, Zealand Worship, and Micah Tyler were all featured. Manitoba artist's SCRIBE and The Color were also there.

"When I drove up in this little city and we pulled in and saw the stage and the people here, it just blew me away," said Texas artist Micah Tyler. "Apparently, this is the place to be right now."

"It just means God's moving," said SCRIBE. "People are just excited about what Jesus is doing through the art scene."

Gagner says that we are built for community living, which is why an event like this is so important to him.

"We want everyone to know the incredible love that Jesus has for us is off the charts," he explained. 

Cavalier is located 122 kilometres southwest of Winnipeg.
