THE CREEKSIDE DIARIES, Volume Four. Wednesday, October 31, 2018. By Kristen Stanton.

The third full day at Creekside began with a chapel service in the showcase hall led by Dr. Jerry Goff followed by a time of music with the ALQC Road Revival featuring several Creekside artists who also perform at the Alabama Quartet Convention.  

Scott Washam of Day Three

Scott Washam from Day Three talked about the humble beginnings of their event. “We didn’t have two pennies to rub together but we stepped out in faith.”

Washam went on to explain how the Road Revival ended up with a show at Creekside. “One day I was talking to Vonda on the phone and she said, hey you should bring the Road Revival to Creekside.  I thought she was joking but here we are.”

The evening concert included some first time artists from Indiana and Florida, showing just how far reaching the Creekside arms are extending.

The Gibbs Family, in their first trip, had the crowd on their feet in worship.

Wednesday night at Creekside would not be complete without Midnight Prayer.  The Chandlers led an intimate time of prayer and worship where over fifty had gathered believing they would leave this event different than they did when they walked in.  

Creekside continues to change lives from night to night.  We have one more day until the event wraps up.

PIGEON FORGE, Tenn. (September 26, 2018) –  It was a terrific Thursday filled with music and message at NQC. The day started bright and early with morning chapel service as the Mark Trammell Quartet and Mike Speck led the crowd in worship, followed by a message from one of the most dynamic preachers today, C.T. Townsend.
Moving forward into the day, Dennis Swanberg gave convention-goers a laugh-break with his comedy.

Next up was Bill Gaither and his Homecoming Friends, filling the LeConte Center with classic songs made popular on the Gaither videos.

The evening concerts were hosted by Josh Franks. Tonight’s performers were: Gaither Vocal Band, Ernie Haase & Signature Sound, Hoppers, Legacy Five, Jonathan Wilburn, Gold City, Ball Brothers, Greater Vision, Tribute Quartet, Mark Trammell Quartet, Jim Brady Trio, Dr. David Jeremiah, Primitive Quartet, Three Bridges, Kingdom Heirs. Power half-hour performances by Tim Menzies, Torchmen, Jordan Family Band, Debra Perry & Jaidyn’s Call
Among tonight’s highlights were the classic harmony of the Gaither Vocal Band, and the comedy of Bill Gaither and his sidekick, Kevin Williams and the moving testimony of Josh Townsend – pianist for Legacy Five – as he told of suffering abuse at the hands of his father in the womb before he was even born. The abuse left his twin dead before birth and Josh suffered a stroke before being delivered. Due to this, doctors told his mother that he would never have use of his left hand, to which Josh testified tonight – “they were wrong.” The crowd – with tears streaming down their face – gave Townsend a standing ovation after he performed the song, “God’s Been Good.”
