Red Letter, currently in its sixth year, was started by Instructor in Worship and Music and Director of Choral Music Dana Hofstrom as a worship group that would prepare people for leading worship, but also be responsible for taking care of some of the chapel worship.
In it’s first year, the name “Red Letter” was chosen by the group because of the Red Letter editions Bible, the words spoken by Jesus while He was on Earth.
For a few weeks over the summers, Red Letter goes across the country on tour.

This summer Red Letter will be doing a four-week tour during the months of June and July:
