About The Reason

The Reason is a family Christmas experience designed to celebrate and share the true reason for the season. Jesus came to rescue the world—He offers us a reset. Let’s bring the Gospel to people in your city this Christmas season. The Reason is a high-energy night of music and a message about the Hope heaven sent that first Christmas night. Invite your friends, family, and more to hear the message of Jesus!



The idea for The Reason started at a prayer meeting of college students who wanted to share the story of Jesus’ birth with their families over Christmas break. They began praying and planning in partnership with PULSE—and God moved. Since 2010, more than 55,000 people have participated in The Reason events in 20+ cities.


Christmas is a busy season, and family members can get scattered at different parties and activities—The Reason is designed to bring the whole family together to celebrate Christmas. Christmas is also a time when many people are more interested in stories of faith, so The Reason is designed for people of all backgrounds to enjoy Christian music and a Gospel message in an accessible way. Invite your friends!
