Spring 2012 Update
Apr 22, 2012 (updated on May 3, 2012)
We had a wonderful concert with Stephen Hill and look forward to having him back in central Illinois very soon!
Shortly after Easter, we began rehearsals for our 14th annual Summertime GospelFest. This year's concert, called the "GospelFest Jubilee" will be set up like a 1940s radio broadcast, complete with the "GospelFonics Orchestra," a live, seven-piece combo accompanying the choir and the GospelFest Singers. Going along with the radio theme, we'll have our own "Announcer" for the radio program. This will be none other than central Illinois radio and TV personality Mr. Lee Ranson! We're going to have a lot of fun!
As a reminder, later this year, Anne and I will be stepping down from our church position to devote more time to this ministry, concerts and radio program. The radio program is entirely listener-supported. We make this show available for free for any station that would like to air it and depend on the prayers and financial support from listeners and ministry partners.
Would you pray about and consider joining our ministry team? All gifts are tax-deductible and can be made here by clicking on the "Support" tab. Gifts can also be sent to GospelFest Ministries, 1336 Honeysuckle Ln., Metamora, IL 61548.
Thanks so much for your prayers for us and this ministry! We're very excited about the future and what God has planned for us!
