Against the Current

“Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s Will is – His good, pleasing, and perfect Will.”
-Romans 12:2
Against the Current is one of six a cappella groups at Boston College. It all started as an idea by Jihoon Shin (’99), Ali Graham (’99), and Ruth Johnson (’00) who wanted to form a group for the purpose of bringing the Gospel to the Boston College community through a cappella music. After spreading the word through campus fellowships, the group was finally formed towards the end of the fall semester in 1998. Against the Current aspires to serve God on the campus of Boston College in conjunction with the campus fellowships, churches, and other organizations.

Against the Current is a non-denominational Christian a cappella group that ministers to the campus community and the Greater Boston area through music and testimonies. The performers assembled in the spring of 1998 with the intention of starting a group that would worship God through a cappella music. Against the Current has grown to be a music ministry including members from each class, race, and denomination of the Boston College student population. In the 2008-2009 academic year, Against the Current celebrated its tenth year anniversary.

Band Interests
As Christians, we aspire to a higher standard, not just the set of rules and laws of this world, but to live by the Word of God. Our goal as a Christian a cappella group is to worship God and share the Gospel message to Boston College through our music.
