Cody Davenport joins us at Replenish Festival on Saturday evening, at 5pm on the Restore Stage. Cody’s musical interest started young as his parents were part of a gospel quartet. He gave his life to Jesus at the early age of 4 and by Junior High he was leading worship and playing guitar.
Cody’s favorite things are his family, music, and Jesus. Having grown up in Northeast Ohio, he is also an avid fan of Ohio State football. Cody met his wife, LaRae at Liberty University where they both attended, and four years later were married. In 2011, they had their first child, Harper Gray and then the second, Titus Boone in 2014.
Cody’s self-titled worship album was released in the fall of 2011 and since that time it has been streamed and downloaded over a million times! You can find it on most streaming sites and you can download it from iTunes.Cody recently moved from Virginia to Florida and is now serving as the Worship Pastor at Lakewood Ranch Baptist Church in Sarasota, Florida.
Replenish Festival started out as a 3-day weekend festival beginning on a Friday evening and ending on Sunday with worship. In 2016, the format of the festival switched to a 2-day format of Saturday and Sunday. This year, we are happy to go back to that original 3-day format opening our gates on Friday and offering MORE music, MORE speakers and ultimately MORE fun.
This 2017 year, we are also excited to bring you Matthew Tuck as our Friday night headliner. This 21-year-old has been doing Christian music for less than a year, but is letting his faith for our Lord SHINE bright! “Christ drives me, my family and friends drives me,” Matthew tells us, “I’m tired of Christian music being seen as corny and fake. I’m here to prove rap and hip hop are still relevant without drugs and girls. To me, rap has meaning, and that driving force behind it is what I’m trying to spread.”
Matthew performed a concert for Fields of Faith (a ministry outreach of Fellowship of Christian Athletes) last fall for a couple thousand in attendance. Soon after, churches and organizations started “blowing up” his phone asking for private concerts. With that, he decided he should record an album and has worked hard on that project this past year. The album officially releases on July 7th, so YES it WILL be available for sale at Replenish Festival and Matthew has said he would be glad to sign it for you! His concert tour will start July 21st.
To keep up with Matthew, be sure to follow him at these social media links:
Voices of Truth is a family stitched together by their love for God and their love for music. With God being the center of their ministry, His presence and anointing shines through their unique acoustic style and original song lyrics allowing the band members to easily connect and relate with people of all ages.
Singing and writing lyrics is more than just a hobby for Voices of Truth. It is their calling. It is their purpose. It’s how they worship God. If you listen closely enough, you can catch a glimpse of the story behind each song lyric. These ladies may be young, but their lyrics reveal the different phases of their spiritual journey and breathes the testimony of who God is and what He can do.
Voices of Truth bring a rare blend of harmony and acoustic contemporary style to the stage producing a sound that nurtures their roots and their purpose. A sound that was created to make a statement. A sound that drives Voices of Truth outside of their comfort zones and vocal ranges. It’s a sound that was crafted to reach beyond genres.
Like most of us, Voices of Truth is a work in progress. God is continuously sculpting them and pushing them beyond the limits they have set for themselves. But, they are quickly realizing there are absolutely no limits on this journey and often cling to Luke 1:37 as a gentle reminder that nothing is impossible with God!

Replenish Festival welcomes back Lenny Hall with Sons of Thunder Ministries. Lenny brought the Word during the 2016 Replenishfest and we are excited to have him join us again. Lenny, along with Timothy Harris, established Sons of Thunder Ministries in 2013.
Lenny’s testimony is that he lived his life giving his “hour” to God every week and then for the rest of the week lived his life how he wanted, but soon got “to the end of the rope.” He states he remembers lying in bed one night and saying, “God, I want more of you. There’s got to be more to you, God, than what I’m getting.” When his friend, Timothy, came over to Lenny’s house one day, Timothy had a word from God to share. “Lenny, you’ve got to stop living this way. YOU have a calling, step into it.”
That night, God gave Lenny a dream and showed him what Sons of Thunder was supposed to be and even what they would have to go through to get where they are today.
Sons of Thunder Ministries has a desire to be a sword in the hands of local ministries to effectively establish the Kingdom of God in people’s lives.
Lenny and his wife, Brandy, feel called by God to travel throughout the world as revivalists sharing the love of God and preaching the good news of the gospel of Jesus Christ.
Lenny and Brandy share a love and passion for reaching the lost. The mission of SOT, through continual revival, is to see people healed and set free by the power of Jesus Christ.
“We feel that God is in the process of pouring out the greatest world wide revival in history. We have a hunger and a passion for ministry and believe in teaching and preaching the Word of God found in the Holy Bible in its entirety.”
Lenny and Brandy continually seek God’s council to be good husbands and wives, good fathers and mothers. Lenny continually strives to be the spiritual leader of their home and a good shepherd to all God continues to bless them with.
Come to Replenish Festival and hear the Word God has given him for this Replenish Festival 2017! In addition (and newly announced) is that a coffee shop called “Holy Grounds” is in the works to be opening soon! A community event is being planned where Lenny has invited a well-known person to come and share a message with all who attend. The person to share has not been announced at this time and Lenny plans to make the special announcement AT Replenish Festival! While he won’t say WHO it is, he assures us the community will NOT want to miss that special event!
From the hometown of neighboring Franklin County, Cry for Salvation was started in 2011 when it was decided their church needed a youth band to “liven things up” on Wednesdays. Two of the band members, began leading worship and soon, they realized there was a bigger calling to spread the Word of God by taking things outside the church and to community needing the Truth… “Cry for Salvation” was born.
Cry for Salvation has also shared the stage with several acts, such as DENS, Exonerated, Joon D, The Return, Relinquish, and more. Their hope and prayer is that people listen to their music and not only enjoy it but see that Jesus can take broken and make us into something beautiful. “Our calling is not to fill ourselves full of Christ and then stop when we are full. Our calling is to overflow with Christ’s love and compassion, to be a disciple, to change the world one song at a time!”
We want to see God work through us and to be a part of changing this broken world and making it something beautiful as he has done to all of us.
