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.”

Several artists including Day Three, Living Faith, Gloryland, and Cami Shrock, performed for a packed house.

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.

Creekside 2018 opens with quartet-filled Kickoff Concert

Creekside Kickoff Concert 2018

Creekside Kickoff Concert 2018

Creekside Diaries, volume one: Sunday, October 28, 2018

By Kristen Stanton

The air is buzzing with excitement here in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee. Cars and buses are pulling into the Smoky Mountain Convention Center ready for a big week here at the Creekside Gospel Music Convention. 

Creekside Kickoff Concert 2018People are greeting each other with hugs or shouts from across the parking lot and it’s clear that “We Are Family” is more than just a slogan – it’s a feeling.  

Creekside Kickoff Concert 2018Now in its seventh year, this event has taken on an identity different from anything else in the industry.    

Packed full of singing and special events, this year kicked off with a bang with Quartet Night. The Pine Ridge Boys, The Chordsmen, and Common Bond Quartet sang to a standing room only audience that left the crowd excited for the Monday night concert. The capacity crowd filed in when the doors opened at 6:30 p.m. and stayed until the last note was sung.

Arthur Rice to be honored by Dr. Jerry Goff at Creekside 2018The spark is in the air – and if you’re here, you can feel it. The pastor at church this morning reminded us that God’s presence changes everything. The three quartets that sang tonight certainly ushered in the presence of God.

Is revival starting?  Maybe. I can’t wait to find out!

Rob Patz celebrates 7 years for Creekside

Written by Staff on October 26, 2018 – 7:35 pm -

Creekside 2018

Creekside 2018

Welcome to the October 2018 Publishers Point by Rob Patz

Rob Patz and Richard Hyssong at SGNScoops booth, NQC 2018

Rob Patz and Richard Hyssong at SGNScoops booth, NQC 2018

As I sit down to write this, we have just closed the National Quartet Convention for another year. It was awesome. Thanks to everybody who worked so hard to put together a fantastic event.

 

The Nelons at Creekside 2017

The Nelons at Creekside 2017

Now we look forward to Creekside 2018 and all that it has in store. I’m excited about this year for many reasons. One, I get a chance to introduce you to the people who read our magazine, some of my new friends who are going to be there this year to sing, plus reacquaint you with some old friends who have been with us since the start.

 

As I was writing this, I begin to think of what all went into the planning process of the first year of Creekside; how underprepared I really was and how awesome God was to step in and bring people of value from day one who would help with everything from seating the people to arranging the midnight prayer time.

So today, I want to share with you my heart. I want to tell you a little bit about what I hope you experience this year when you come and visit us for Creekside 2018.

 

I want you to experience the friendships that are cultivated during this time. You’re going to get the opportunity to meet new artists and new fans; people that you may never have heard of before. My prayer is that the time you leave this week they will be like old friends.

I hope you enjoy the experience of listening to new music and hearing new speakers. I hope above all that during the time we’re together for four and a half days, that we point you in the direction of Christ. We can spend an entire year planning an event, but that event will fall short if we don’t point you to Christ and a personal relationship with him.

During the next few weeks, you will see items on social media about everything that we are doing as we prepare. In my head, I began counting down the days several months ago. I’m ready to see what God has in store. I believe there is going to be a move of God this year. I’m excited about C.T. Townsend being with us and preaching in a way that only he can, stirring the souls of all listeners.

 

Creekside 2018

Creekside 2018

If you told me seven years ago that I would still be planning this event and that it would’ve grown to the size that it is now, where it takes a crew of people months on end to organize, I could not have imagined it. But here we are in countdown mode, getting ready to see everyone we love and excited to meet new people.

 

A couple of years ago we realized that at Creekside, “we are family,” and that became our slogan. I truly begin to embrace it because at the end of the day, family is so important to what we’re doing.

 

So come join us for Creekside 2018. We want to fill the Smoky Mountain Convention Center with praise and prayer over four days. Join me this year and become part of our family.

 

Rob Patz

Until next month, this is the Publisher’s Point.

Pray for Susan Gibbs of the Gibbs Family

Written by Staff on October 17, 2018 – 3:49 pm -

Susan Gibbs suffers mini stroke

Susan Gibbs suffers mini stroke

The Gibbs Family have requested prayers for Vernon’s wife Susan Gibbs. According to Vernon’s latest post on Facebook, Susan has been admitted to the hospital for a mini-stroke. A CT Scan showed she has had several in the past. Doctors are looking at a known tumor in the brain to see if that is the source of the strokes.

Vernon and Susan live in Scottsmoor, Florida, where they have been helping those who were hit with Hurricane Michael. They have a daughter, Natasha, and two sons, Bo and Tim, as well as several grandchildren. Susan was just involved in a hit-and-run on September 25 which caused her a lot of back pain, plus she has been dealing with other medical issues for several years.

The Gibbs Family (see their website here) have been singing throughout the United States for the past 20 years. Their website states: “With a combination of southern gospel, praise and worship, contemporary, and country gospel, we have something for everyone. We enjoy every moment out on the road and praise God for giving us the talent to minister to others.”

The Gibbs Family were scheduled to appear at Creekside Gospel Music Convention 2018. SGNScoops requests your prayers for Susan and Vernon and their family at this time. #wearefamily

The Williamsons

Creekside Gospel Music Convention 2018 welcomes back the Williamson to Pigeon Forge, Tennessee, and the lovely Smoky Mountain Convention Center, October 28 – November 1.

The Williamsons with Jerry Goff and Jan Buckner Goff at the Diamond Awards.

Randall Hamm, music reviewer for SGNScoops Magazine, had this to say about the Williamsons latest project: “How do you follow your last project “Tell Somebody,” which gave the Williamsons their first No. 1 song, a top 10, and several top 30 songs? With another career project, “Give Them Jesus.” From start to finish, the Williamsons have created a masterpiece along with producers Les Butler and Donna King. This CD has no filler; all of the songs have a great message to convey to the listener. Their latest single is “Jesus, What a Wonderful Name” is moving quickly upward on the national charts. Following this single will be a tough call for the Williamsons… Donnie and the group (including Donnie’s wife, Lisa Williamson; Karl Rice and Darin Hebert) have once again crafted another solid CD.”

Here is a video of the Williamsons’ latest single, “Jesus, What a Wonderful Name:”

Gospel music artists appearing at Creekside Gospel Music Convention also include the Jordan Family Band, the Pine Ridge Boys, Mark209, Sunday Drive, the Hyssongs, Eagle’s Wings, the Chandlers, the Dunaways, and many more.

Creekside welcomes first time appearance of Jordan Family Band

Written by Staff on August 18, 2018 – 8:31 am -

Jordan Family Band celebrates the flag

Jordan Family Band

Creekside Gospel Music Convention will host the Jordan Family Band for the first time. The Jordan Family Band has been heating up the radio charts and the live videos on Facebook with their unique style of Southern Gospel.

The Jordan Family Band is a family group with a country gospel feel. The group consists of Josh and Randa Jordan and their sons Hutch (17), Alex (12), Grant (10), and a friend of the family who is like an adopted son to them, Keenan Atkinson (20).

The family got a unique start in 2009. Randa says that they aren’t a family group who raised their family to sing and travel, but for them it just happened.

“It just wasn’t something I saw for my family,” Randa confesses. “Josh and I grew up singing in church and even started a small group with my brother. We had dreams to build the group and go full time, but we ended up building families.”

However, we all know that what’s in God’s plan, will always find a way.

Gospel music artists appearing at Creekside Gospel Music Convention also include the Williamsons, the Pine Ridge Boys, Mark209, Sunday Drive, the Hyssongs, Eagle’s Wings, the Chandlers, the Dunaways, and many more.
