West Des Moines Christian Church in West Des Moines, IA has hosted an acoustic coffeehouse concert series for years called The Lighthouse Coffeehouse. After taking a hiatus, the series has been retooled and premiered in June of 2011 as The Lighthouse Concert Series at West Des Moines Christian Church. They are looking to feature varying genres of music including inspirational, folk, blues, acoustic and more. Artists will receive compensation which will be negotiated based on draw and experience. Also, the addition of an outside Courtyard and 500 seat sanctuary have added more performance space options for the series.

The Lighthouse Concert Series at West Des Moines Christian Church offers 3 different types of performances:

  • 500 seat sanctuary

  • Outside courtyard

  • Fellowship hall “listening room”

It might seem unusual to see blues, folk, or rock groups in a church setting, but the truth is, churches have been offering live music for years to their respective communities. While people who love live music like to get out and see as much as they can, some don't want the hassle of usual concert crowds, cigarette smoke or alcohol-drinking patrons.
Churches solved this problem by bringing quality performers of varying genres to a "listening room" environment, where both the performer and the audience have a rich experience.
