Christian Music Festival Set To Change Locations

UPDATED 3:15 p.m.
The Lincoln County Planning and Zoning Commission has granted the LifeLight Christian music festival a permit to hold its annual festival on a 220-acre farm just east of Worthing next Labor Day weekend, September 3-5.
The LifeLight board voted Tuesday morning to approve the new location.
Alan Greene, CEO and co-founder of LifeLight, says his group feels like the Worthing land is its permanent new home.
The farmland is owned by Evelyn Pederson, whose husband, Dwayne Pederson, died about a year ago. Their daughter, Karla Lems, said she and her mother prayed about what to do with the land.
She says they contacted LifeLight after hearing about the festival's needs. Lems says it was "a God thing."
The festival has been held near a water park west of Sioux Falls.
