webbSeptember 17, 2014 – The Rick Webb Family is proud to announce a partnership with Energize Ministries, based in Winston-Salem, NC.

The organization provides encouragement and refreshment to local church pastors through counseling, unique retreats and ongoing accountability services. The Rick Webb Family will perform special benefit concerts throughout the year and provide exposure to the ministry through their yearly concert schedule.
The first concert is scheduled for Sunday, October 5, 2014 at Christ Wesleyan Church in Winston-Salem, NC at7:00 PM.
The Rick Webb Family is known for loving pastors and the local church so this partnership is a natural fit. “So many pastors and their families have nowhere to turn when they face discouragement,” says Rick Webb. “They give out so much every single day, and many times they have no one pouring into their lives and the lives of their families. Energize Ministries does just that and our family is proud to partner with them to help the families of the local church pastor.”
The Rick Webb Family is celebrating 30 years in music ministry. The group is known for their musical excellence and strong biblically based programs. They have appeared at some of the largest churches in America and alongside giants of the faith such as Dr. Charles Stanley, Dr. Charles Colson, Dr. David Jeremiah and Dr. D. James Kennedy – just to name a few.
Their latest project Committed to the Call is available from Song Garden Music Group.

VOICEOFHOPETOURPHOTONashville, TN (November 25, 2013) The Beckie Simmons Agency is thrilled to announce the Voice Of Hope Christmas Tour featuring Gold City, the Bowling Family, Steve Ladd, and Donna King.

The tour will be sponsored by Compassion International and will make stops in West Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Ohio, and Indiana/Kentucky during the month of December. The featured artists, Gold City, the Bowling Family, Steve Ladd, and Donna King, will be celebrating the HOPE of Christmas through their music and sharing incredibly memorable evenings with concert attendees.

Gold City’s Daniel Riley expresses, “Christmas truly is the season for giving, and it all started when God gave us the gift of salvation through His Son, as a baby born in a manger. I look at my beautiful family, my wife and two daughters, and think how incredibly blessed I am. I am excited to be embarking on a tour that will allow us all to celebrate Christmas, count our blessings, and, also, provide meaningful support to precious children, who so desperately need it, through the powerful ministry of Compassion International. This really is the season of compassion. When Jesus Christ came to earth–it was with the compassion of a pure and holy God for his children. We hope to share in the joy of that HOPE with you on the Voice Of Hope tour this December.”

Zane King, of Compassion shares, “We are blessed to have such wonderful artists headed out to share the JOY of Christmas and to be a voice for the least of these, those in extreme poverty around the world. This concert tour promises to be uplifting, encouraging, and full of GREAT music! I truly believe it will also make a life changing difference for attendees and for children around the world.”

“To sing about our Savior is ALWAYS an extreme honor. To share an opportunity to change a life through Compassion makes it even better,” expresses Mike Bowling of the Bowling Family, “We are going to have a GREAT TIME together on this tour. Please join us at one of the Voice Of Hope concert dates around the country this December!”

And solo artist Steve Ladd puts it like this; “I’m so excited to be a part of the Voice Of Hope Tour! The Christmas season is a time of Compassion. Celebrating the compassion God had for us by sending his Son to this world is a JOY! What better way to celebrate that than have a powerful night of music all centered around our Savior, and, even more, to offer HOPE to children around the world.”

On Friday night, the Dixie Melody Boys hosted their annual homecoming in Kinston, North Carolina. It was one of many events that are planned for this year to celebrate the 50th anniversary year of the Dixie Melody Boys. The night was filled with touching tributes to Ed O’Neal who is is also celebrating his 50th anniversary. The Nelons delivered an anointed performance that was followed by a tearful presentation to Mr. O’Neal on behalf of the Nelon’s. A message from Bill Gaither, a letter from United States Senator Richard Burr and other awards made the evening an historic event.
The Dixie Melody Boys have made their home in Kinston, North Carolina for over three decades. The mayor of Kinston, B.J. Murphy, was on hand to make a very special presentation. Mayor Murphy presented Mr. O’Neal with a proclamation instituting February 4th as Ed O’Neal Day in the city of Kinston.
The Dixie Echoes were also part of this celebration event bringing the capacity crowd of over 1000 people to their feet with their classic two microphone performance.
