NewsBoys Frontman Michael Tait Came to Christ after Hearing a Message about Hell

Newsboys frontman Michael Tait recently reflected on his life, career, and how he came to saving faith.

In a recent interview with CBN Digital, Tait shared what lessons he’s learned throughout his long music career.

“One big thing I’ve learned [is] just to stay true to who you are when you’re doing what you do,” he said.

He attributed the “power of the Almighty God” for allowing him to spend years in the music industry, adding that he believes his music becomes stronger and more creative as he gets older.

Tait also opened up about his faith journey, including sharing that it was “late” for him to dedicate his life to Christ fully. 

“Dad was also a cab driver, so he … drove cabs, and they preached church on Sunday,” he said. “If you got in my dad’s cab, there was a good chance you would be saved in more ways than one.”

When Tait was about 17 or 18 years old, a preacher came to his school and spoke about the “subject of hell, and how real hell is, and how beautiful heaven is.”

“He preached on what preachers don’t preach about much anymore,” the singer said. “You can’t get saved on the back of your dad or your mom; it’s not osmosis. It’s a thing we have to be one-on-one with God.”

“I got fired up that day, man — pun intended,” he added. “I got fired up, and I went … forward for prayer, and I accepted God for myself as my Savior that day in high school.”

Like any Christian, Tait acknowledged he has had his “moments” throughout his walk of faith, noting, “We’re sinners saved by grace.”

Nevertheless, the singer stressed God has been faithful to him throughout his life.

“When I’ve been grossly unfaithful … He keeps bringing me back to the cross,” Tait said.
