Jesus Freak Hideout is a Christian music website. The website specializes in reviewing, previewing, and selling Christian albums. The website is known for its album reviews, independent music, artist interviews, concert dates, and ministry through devotionals and prayer.

Farro (jesusfreakhideout writer)] at whatgoesintothemind.com; Retrieved February 10 2007] The site is named for and inspired by dc Talk's 1995 album, "Jesus Freak". [ [http://www.jesusfreakhideout.com/cdreviews/JesusFreak.asp "Jesus Freak Review"] ; Jesus Freak Hideout; Retrieved April 7 2007] Also, the name Jesus Freak Hideout was chosen because John DiBiase, the site's creator, used many variations of the screen name Jesus Freak, and he created a chat room that was his Jesus Freak Hideout.

History

The Jesus freak Hideout was created on August 13, 1996 by John DiBiase, a then-16 year old fan of Christian music. The site got its start as an Angelfire webpage for its first two years on the web.

In the Summer of 1998, the site partnered with a major Christian record label, helping it reach a wider audience. Jesus Freak Hideout was launched at www.jesusfreakhideout.com. The website ended its relationship with the record label in 2001 and has continued growing as a significant independent voice among the Christian music community, becoming one of the top media resources of its kind. The site is updated daily and covers the latest in Christian music, including album reviews, artist interviews, contests/giveaways, music news, among other features. The Jesus Freak Hideout has also reviewed many concerts from bands such as Skillet, Relient K, Switchfoot, Anberlin, Blindside, The O.C. Supertones, and Audio Adrenaline. They have also had exclusive interviews with some of the very top CCM artists such as Rebecca St. James, TobyMac, Relient K, Family Force 5, Kevin Max, Thousand Foot Krutch, Audio Adrenaline, and many others. The site also exceeds the realm of Christian music and reviews current films and DVD releases, and has an active prayer requests department for those in need.

A few years after the Jesus Freak Hideout got its start, author J.M. Farro began writing devotionals for the site, which later went on to appear in four books published by Harrison House Publishers - "Life On Purpose," "Life On Purpose For Women," "Life On Purpose For Men," and "Life On The Go For Dads." Farro's "Life On Purpose" books went on to sell well over 60,000 copies.
