About Jesusfreakhideout.com

. About Us: Our History

Jesusfreakhideout.com™ is one of the world's largest Christian music online resources. Created in August of 1996 as what originated as a small webpage titled "The Jesus Freak Hideout," the site was the flourishing creation of music fan and graphic designer John DiBiase. In August of 1998, the site blossomed into Jesusfreakhideout.com, bearing a big vision for spreading faith-based music across the globe via the web. JFH began during the infancy of music media services on the web, before it had been an acceptable source for information, and has endured well into a time when web media has become a primary source as printed media begins to fade. With well over a decade on the web under its belt, the Jesus freak Hideout looks forward to the future. Our goals are many, as we do our best to bring the latest and greatest in Christian music to the Internet masses and beyond. We believe firmly in the positive messages that Christian music has to offer, especially with all the highly negative music that the mainstream market is always pushing to the public. In addition to the message of the music in the Christian industry, we believe in pursuing excellence artistically in the quality of the music that artists produce in the name of Jesus. We also believe very strongly in bringing the message of Christ to the world through music. We've all seen God do mighty things through it and only look forward to seeing more mighty works done. On top of this, we hope to encourage our fellow Christians and all those who wish to visit the Hideout through prayer requests and devotionals. Finally, we feel it important to share our views on current films through our in-depth movie review section, branching out just a bit further from the music world. Please feel free to browse Jesusfreakhideout.com and become a part of this ever-growing online community! Welcome!

. Why the name "Jesus freak Hideout?"

We get this question quite often about the name "Jesus freak Hideout" (note: Hideout is one word, not "hide out"), and we would like people to understand that our name is more just a 'catchy' name than anything else. However, the "JFH" has become symbolic for being a gathering place for all who wish to come - for all the "Jesus Freaks" (or 'ardent enthusiasts' for Jesus) on the world wide web to come and not hide, but to gather, fellowship, and learn about Christ and the music which was made to glorify Him.

The origin of the name isn't too exciting. While chatting online in 1996, John, the creator of the Hideout, had gone by one of the many variations of "Jesus Freak" screen names dc Talk fans would often use at the time the album Jesus Freak was new. NetCentral.net chat rooms were then offering free private chat rooms, and although it was never used, DiBiase created his own "Jesus Freak Hideout," never having any inkling about what the name would come to symbolize or be used for in the years ahead...

. What is with that little cartoon character? Who's "Lloyd?"

Many often wonder what the deal is with the little cartoon character that graces the top of many of the sections (and has his own called "Lloyd's Crazy Captions"). This is Lloyd, a chipmunk character DiBiase began drawing in 1994. For a little more information about Lloyd, visit his staff page.
