Emily Wilson

Emily Wilson travels the world and shares her faith as a speaker, author, and musician. She earned a degree in broadcast journalism at Arizona State University. She planned to become a sports broadcaster, but after reading Saint John Paul II’s apostolic letter, Mulieris Dignitatem, she felt a powerful call to use her education to spread the gospel by speaking and presenting. She is also the author of two books, including, “I Choose the Sky,” and “Go Bravely.” Emily loves Chipotle, the Pacific Ocean and living in Southern California with her Dutch husband, Daniël.


Andrew Laubacher, aka ALOB, was raised in Ventura, California, where he attended Mass, played many sports, hung at the beach and was always into music. He attended Catholic school before switching to a public school because he was “tired of the Catholic rules.” In high school, he partied hard. After a serious wake-up call, he decided to attend a Steubenville Youth Conference where he found God. That changed ALOB’s life. ALOB received degrees in theology and philosophy from Franciscan University. Today, his mission is to introduce the freedom and love of Christ through worship music and preaching to modern culture.

RISE UP presents a FREE evening for young people and families featuring Emily Wilson and Andrew Laubacher (better known as ALOB).


This is a FREE event but you are required to pick up a wrist band in order to gain admittance to the theater.  Only those with wrist bands will be allowed in.  First come, first serve so get yours as soon as you arrive.  We expect to be full.

Food Trucks arrive at 4:30 and food is available for purchase so come early and enjoy incredible food before the concert.

Games will be set up and available.  Get ready for some giant Jenga, basketball, ping pong, dancing and other fun activities.  These vary so you may have a new variety at each event.

Doors open at 6:00 p.m.  You’ll want to get into the theater when the door open because Rise Up gets going fast with a fun and high energy pre-event and you’ll get to pick your favorite seat as it’s all general seating.

At 6:30 p.m. the main event begins.  You’ll hear incredible and uplifting Christian music and a dynamic speaker who will talk about what’s important while challenging us to be who God created us to be!

8:45 pm. Our after party begins with live D.J., desserts to purchase and more fun!  Meet ALOB.  Meet the MC’s.  Meet Emily Wilson.

9:30 p.m. The event is over and wish you all a safe trip home!
