Rob Patz’ Publisher’s Point for SGNScoops’ March 2018 issue

Welcome to the March Publisher’s Point. As I sit and write this, I have been trying to put into words my emotions about the loss of Billy Graham.

It is amazing to look at the impact that one man had on our world. Dr. Graham never wanted to over complicate a very simple and true message, that Jesus died on the cross for you and for me, and that if you accept Him as your personal Savior, one day you will see heaven.

Sunday Sermon: Who is Jesus? by Dr.Billy Graham

Dr.Billy Graham

I think of how amazing it must’ve been when Dr. Graham crossed over, and for the first time, got to see exactly what he had been preaching about. I read one quote that said that this world was not his home, that he was just a traveler passing through here. I think we should all live that way.

So many of us, me included, work so hard to accumulate possessions here on earth. We want to be able to say, “This is mine,” when in reality, none of this is ours. Everything that we are given is a gift from God. How we use those gifts is a completely different story.

I truly believe as an outsider looking in, that Dr. Graham, throughout his life, took the gifts that God had given him and created a legacy that will last forever.

The last few days have made me realize that the only thing that we leave on this earth is what we do for Christ. That will last forever. It has challenged me to do more, to enjoy more, to seek God more. At the end of the day, I want to leave a legacy of pointing people to Christ and His cross and challenging those around me to do the same.

As we know, March ushers in spring and new beginnings, and I want to challenge you during this month to pray about what God has for you to do, and for the rest of this year. What legacy will you leave? What impact will you have, and what is the plan God has for you?

Rob Patz and Chuck Day

By the time you read this, Southern Gospel Weekend in Oxford, Ala., will have come to a close for another year. I do want to invite you to join us for Christian Country Expo in Cookeville, Tenn., from May 3-5.

Of course, I also want you to be with us for Creekside 2018 in Pigeon Forge, Tenn., which kicks off on Oct. 28.

Rob Patz asks if You are Missing the Mark

February 2018 SGNScoops Magazine

February 2018 SGNScoops Magazine. Publisher’s Point by Rob Patz

Publisher’s Point by Rob Patz

Welcome to the February edition of the Publisher’s Point. So how was the first month of the year? Did you complete everything you wanted to accomplish? Did you keep your New Year’s resolutions? Are you on the path to a successful 2018?


Okay, right now is a moment of transparency. To be completely honest with you, I haven’t kept either of my resolutions. One was to exercise. Now, I’m not saying I haven’t exercised at all, but I haven’t exercised with any consistency.

 

I blew the other resolution too.  I was going to be more organized. Yeah, that one hasn’t worked out too great either. In fact, I probably will lose this Publisher’s Point at least once before it actually makes the magazine. If that doesn’t make you laugh, nothing will.

Sometimes in life, we set standards and goals for ourselves, both of which are sometimes not attainable. I’m not saying we shouldn’t strive for high standards, or for lofty goals … far from it. I think we should always dream bigger than we can imagine, because we serve a God who wants us to set goals that are beyond our normal beliefs.

 

However, I do want to talk about something that has been weighing on my heart, and that is missing the mark when you set goals and standards. I’ll be honest with you … over the last month, I have struggled with my own self-worth. They say, in life, you can be your worst critic, and there have been times when I have questioned my own decisions. I’m not saying we shouldn’t question our own decisions. Again, this is something that we need to pray about.

When I wrote last month’s Publisher’s Point, I didn’t realize how the words that God had given me would come to such life, when I said, “2018 is a new year and new you.” As I have watched circumstances and events unfold in my own life over the last 30 days, it has made me realize that I may miss the mark I have set for myself.

 

Rob Patz with Mark Trammell, Nick Trammell and Pat Barker

Rob Patz with Mark Trammell, Nick Trammell and Pat Barker

I sometimes struggle to even see the mark, but I know that God is with me. I know that He cares very much for me and for what I’m doing, but He hasn’t brought me to this point to leave me. I do know that He alone is who I should focus on.

 

For so much of our life, we want to set these great and grandiose New Year’s resolutions. Please listen to me … I do think that we should all set goals. I think we should have things that we want to accomplish, because without goals – especially written down – we will never accomplish anything. But what I’m saying is that our first and foremost thing in life should be to immerse ourselves in what Jesus wants.


This month, I want to encourage you to know that if you are a Christian, you serve a God who is closer than a brother and who sees everything that you’re doing. He knows what you’re striving for. He knows that, at times, you’re going to miss the mark that you have set. Remember, He may not make the goal that you believe you should reach.

 

He is the God of grace, the God of love, and the God of peace. He loves you regardless of what you are striving for and wants you to make His goals your standard for your life this year.

Make plans to join me in Oxford, Ala., from March 1-3.We are going to have an awesome time. God is going to move, and we believe that lives will be changed. See you then.

 

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

Chapel Valley Hosts #1 Celebration For The Hyssongs

Written by Staff on February 12, 2018 – 12:10 pm -

Guests of honor from all over the country attended this special dinner party to celebrate with The Hyssongs. Rob Patz, Publisher of SGNScoops and CEO of Coastal Media Group, presented the group with a plaque recognizing their No. 1 song in SGNScoops’ Top 100. Also attending was Vonda Easley, Advertising and Social Media head of SGNScoops, and owner of Hey Y’all Media.

Richard shared from his heart, “Many from the Gospel music industry attended the celebration party. We are honored to call them friends. A major part of the event was to recognize those that are behind-the-scenes. The musicians are sometimes forgotten, however, we know that without them our albums would not be the same. It was neat to have them come forward individually and receive a plaque recognizing their amazing, God-given talents.”

The Hyssongs’ previous radio single “Let the Hallelujahs Ring,” written by Lee Black and Kenna Turner West, topped the SGNScoops’ Top 100 in July of 2017.

The Hyssongs have been singing together as a family for more than 21 years. They travel the United States and abroad sharing the Gospel, singing and playing their instruments for the glory of God.

“This was an unforgettable evening and a joy to spend it with so many friends. We appreciate them coming and celebrating our #1 song with us,” said Susan Hyssong. Congratulations to Dell, Susan, and Richard Hyssong!

We know you will enjoy this video:

Rob Patz: New Year, New You

Written by Staff on January 19, 2018 – 5:07 am -

Rob Patz

Rob Patz

SGNScoops Publisher’s Point for January 2018 by Rob Patz

It is a brand new year. Are you excited about what God has for you in 2018? We have a slogan right now at WPIL (91.7 FM, Heflin, Ala., www.wpilfm.com) that is, a brand new year and a brand new you. I started that with the idea to encourage people to experience new things.

 

I truly believe that 2018 is going to be an amazing year filled with exciting opportunities. I believe that about every year, and as I look back at 2017, I think we should always take an inventory of where we’ve been. There have been many great things that have happened in 2017, and there have been some trials. I am thankful though that God has allowed me to be a part of some fantastic events and to minister to people around the country.

 

The year of 2017 saw changes, but then again, if you think about it, in every year there are changes. If we stay the same we are not moving forward. In the Bible, it says that we should run the race, and my feeling about that is that God doesn’t want us to be stable. He doesn’t want us to be happy in the location we are in today.

 

Hourglass, new yearI had the opportunity to talk with a pastor, and we were sharing our visions for this coming year. I said that God always put big visions in my head. Now, that doesn’t mean that those visions always come to fruition that year. Sometimes, those visions take years to accomplish. But it says we have to run the race, and life is not a sprint … it’s a marathon. That means like a marathon runner, we watch for landmarks to know where we are. Like when runners get to the 13-mile mark, they know they are halfway there.

 

I truly believe God puts it in our hearts each year to grow in new and exciting ways that He wants us to run. He wants us to continue to make an impact for the kingdom, because if we stand still, we are not fulfilling the great commission.

 

So many people say, “I don’t know how I’m going to get to my goal.” I had a very wise friend who was an older pastor tell me that the best way to get to your goal is start walking. If you don’t start moving, nothing will ever happen. If you don’t start exercising your faith, you won’t reach your goal. As much as we talked about running earlier, we talk the same about exercising our faith.

 

So, as I sit here at the beginning of a brand new year, I want to encourage you to do three things for me. This year, I want you to read your Bible more. I want you to pray more, and I want you to begin to exercise your faith.

 

New Year 2018 GoalsSo many of us talk about exercise as one of our New Year’s resolutions. May I encourage you this year to make one of your resolutions – that you will keep – to exercise your faith. Start to dream. Start to believe that God has bigger, greater things for you ahead. Then, start to run your race. If the Lord allows, I want to be with you at the end of this year, to cheer you on as you cross the finish line of another year.

 

As you start the new year off, make plans to join us in Oxford, Ala., from March 1-3 for Southern Gospel Weekend. Find more information about this great event in this edition.

 

That’s the Publisher’s Point.

2018 Goals….. What Are Your Resolutions?

Written by scoopsnews on December 31, 2017 – 2:15 am -

 

New Year’s resolutions are a big focus this time of year. With 2017 rapidly coming to a close, many people will be looking forward to the year ahead and hoping that it is the best year possible. I asked some of our writers ,staff, and friends at SGN Scoops what are they looking forward to in 2018.
Here’s what they had to say.

Erin Stephens
As 2017 begins to fade into the distance, I am embracing the unknown of what 2018 will bring. Sure, it can be scary, but when you know the One who holds the future, it doesn’t seem so daunting. From music ministry, to my photography business, and even my writing, I’m ready to give it all I have. May the next 365 days make the last 365 a tad bit jealous.

 

Sarah Murray
I am looking so forward to 2018! Each year is like a clean slate as well as a time to look back at all God has done! My husband and I are praying for a lot of things this year and instead of just praying for them, we are expecting them! God has perfect plans for each of his children and instead of living my life in gloom of what hasn’t happened yet and why I can’t change it, we are tackling 2018 with handing our desires to God and living in fulfillment now and great expectation for the future! I pray everyone will do the same so we can all rejoice together as Christians! To God be the glory for great things he is doing!!!

 

Lorraine Walker
We are on the brink of 2018 and I am looking ahead to the new year with expectation. The temptation is there of course to be wary of the negative things that might happen, but as of right now, I choose to look forward with eyes of faith, expecting God to fulfill His promises of abundant life. I am choosing to deliberately draw closer to Him, knowing that He will then draw closer to me. That in itself should make for an interesting year, don’t you think? Whatever else happens, I’m in God’s hands.

 

Roger Barkley Jr
So thankful for everything God brought us through in 2017 & looking forward to seeing what He has in store for us in 2018. Now that the knees are close to 100% (besides old age lol) we are starting to fill the rest of the calendar for His Service. With a new CD of “Why Wait To Praise Him” now out looking to what He has next for us to do & excited to be a willing vessel. We are looking at doing a new audio book, more outreaches of our Ministry with Measures of Hope, crossing the lines of not only denominations but also to the secular world that is hungry for the word or thirsty for a drink from the cup. We are continually furthering our education in order to use it to further his kingdom. Just so excited to see what is next.

 

Robert York
I am looking forward to 2018 to see what God has in store for Gospel Music.  There will be a lot of events coming up in 2018 and I trust and look forward to the large attendance they will draw, the blessings they will bring and also bring lost people to know Jesus as their Savior.  Hope to see many of my friends during 2018 and God Blesses them.

 

Selena Brantley Day
Every year I ask God for a word for the upcoming year. This year I heard God say, “Breakthrough”. I have been holding on to some big promises from God for a very long time so hearing this is exciting. Twice last year I asked God for a fleece for these promises. Was I holding on to something that may not have been God, but what man spoke over me? Both times I put the fleece out God answered me with a resounding yes. So I go into 2018 believing that I will see breakthrough even though I have no idea what the year holds I know that God’s word is true and he says that He goes before me to prepare the way. He promises that He will never leave me so I know that He holds my future and I can trust that whatever 2018 has for our family that it is God’s will to bless us and I choose to fill my mind with beauty and truth. Meditating on whatever is honorable, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is good, whatever is virtuous and praiseworthy.

 

Dusty Wells
I’m choosing to believe that 2018 is going to be a NEW year of incredible opportunities and fresh beginnings for each one of us as we all make the choice to draw closer to Him and listen even more intently for His voice. He’s never failed us and He’s not going to now. He is with us my friends.

 

Debbie Seagraves
As I sit here and reflect on 2017 and try to look ahead to 2018 I am filled with so many emotions.  2017 was a very hard year for me in so many ways, with my husband having an unsuccessful back surgery and suffering from severe Rheumatoid Arthritis and my mom having so many health problems, it was a very trying year and I was not able to do all I had done in the past.  But as 2018 approaches, I am filled with a sense of excitement as I feel I am hearing the Lord speak that 2018 begins a new season for Debbie Seagraves Ministries.  New doors are being opened and some are being closed and I am sad in some ways but excited about the new things the Lord is speaking to me in my spirit. I have the opportunity to step into a ministry that I feel the Lord called me to many years ago that I had gotten away from with my traveling, speaking, and singing. I love to sing but the Lord spoke to me many years ago and told me I would take my testimony and help others with what I had been through. I did that for many years but have gotten away from it because I have been traveling and singing more.  I will continue to travel and sing but I am scaling back my ministry to work with some ministries closer to home that I feel the Lord is calling me to do.  I have the opportunity to work and minister in two drug rehabilitation programs for both ladies and men in my area and with us losing our own daughter to a drug overdose I feel this is something I must do.  My heart is overflowing with emotion as I write this having just come from one to the rehabilitation centers tonight.  I feel I am very much needed here and I will step into it with an overwhelming excitement at the hope of being able to help some young lady or young man overcome the very addiction that took my daughter from me.  I will continue to sing, write songs and record, because I believe God gave me those gifts and I must continue to use them, but I will not be traveling as much as I have in the past.  Please be in prayer with me for this new season the Lord has called me to.  I have so many wonderful memories of my time on the road and with all the many talented artists I have had the opportunity to work with. Thank you Rob Patz for all your help and for being such an awesome friend to me.  I hope to see everyone at Creekside 2018.  God Bless everyone and Happy New Year.  May 2018 be a great year for all of us.

 

Leslie McKay
For 2018, I am looking forward to enjoying time with my daughter, Mary Katherine.  She turned 16 this week and I want to really cherish the time with her in 2018. Time seems to fly by and before we know it she will be moving on to college and her own life.

 

Dennis Mckay
2018 looks like it is going to be a busy year for McKay Project and M.A.C. Records. We hope to put out a new acoustic project for McKay Project at some point. We are looking forward to traveling with RIG Ministries in 2018 and the release of another Lonesome Road project (Volume 2).  At this point we have more dates on the books than ever before and we are excited about traveling to new parts of the country. Big thanks to Cornerstone Booking Agency for their hard work on behalf of McKay Project. In addition, Leslie, Mary Katherine and I will be getting our passports soon. We are looking at the possibility of traveling to Scotland in 2018 to share our music and ministry. The studio is already busy and we expect it to continue. We have 4 M.A.C. Artists on schedule to release new projects in 2018. Of course we are always amazed to see what God has in mind because it’s always more than we could have expected. We are trusting Him for the same in 2018.

 

Vonda Easley
Millions around the world will be setting New Year’s resolutions, which will typically involve some form of self-improvement. Mine is simply, enjoy the little things in life. The older I get, the more I realize that they are the things that really matter. I want to be a better “Vonda” in 2018 and I certainly want to tell more people about Jesus this year than ever before. He is the best thing that’s ever happened to me! Happy New Year y’all! This is my year. I believe!

It’s time to meditate on what difference you want to make in 2018. To all of our readers of SGN Scoops, thank you for your friendship. One of our resolutions is to give more of our time and talents to you in the upcoming year.

Rob Patz,
Owner, SGN Scoops

Christmas Challenge by Rob Patz

Written by Staff on December 17, 2017 – 5:34 am -

Christmas Challenge by Rob PatzPublisher’s Point for Christmas and December 2017 by Rob Patz

 

‘Tis the season. I wonder how many times this year I will actually say that, and I wonder how many people really understand what we celebrate during the season. As Christians, we celebrate the fact that God saw such a need that He would send His only son, knowing full well that His son would die on a cross.

 

I have to say that there are times where I forget to take in the full impact of what Christmas really means. We all get so busy sharing the holiday with family and friends that we forget the impact of a baby being born in a manger. No, we as modern-day humans don’t understand what a manger really is. A manger wasn’t a softly made bed like the paintings that we see. They say it was hewn out of stone and probably was very rustic. It’s difficult to think that the savior of the world was born under such conditions.

 

That should make us all reevaluate how we look at the holidays. I’m not saying you should take down your tree, and I’m not saying you should stop buying gifts, I’m just saying that maybe this year, during the holiday, you should sit down and read the Christmas story and reflect on the magnitude of this perfect gift, which we truly celebrate.

 

‘During the holiday season …’ – that way I can work Thanksgiving in as well, since I’m writing to you before Thanksgiving – I spend a lot of time reflecting on life. I think we all do. Like everyone, I miss family during this time of year. There are those that have gone on before us, those who we don’t have the opportunity to call or see during the holidays, and then we have those who have – with time – drifted out of our lives. This includes my family as much as those that are close friends. During this time of year, I often wonder what they’re doing, or how they are. I usually take a few minutes, especially on Thanksgiving, to pray for them.

 

Christmas 2017As you read this, for most of you, Christmas is in full swing. My family and I enjoy this time of year immensely. It’s an opportunity to not only look forward, but to look back at the past year.

 

This was a year full of changes and challenges. As someone who embraces change, some of the changes were good … some of them, not so much. As far as challenges, like everyone, I had different sets of challenges, but with challenges, we know we are moving forward. As much as we embrace change, we should also learn to embrace challenges.

 

What challenges are laid before you, and what does God have for you to do within that challenge? I learned that over this past year that sometimes God is creating the challenge to strengthen us. I recently heard a pastor say that without challenges we will see no growth, for in the challenge God creates in us the wisdom to move forward. I believe this year I have learned and gained new wisdom.

 

Rob Patz

Rob Patz

I’m going close this year’s Publishers Point by challenging you to pray not only for our magazine, but for your church, your neighbors, and your family. I pray that this year you take time to specifically pray for each. I believe that 2018 is going to be full of new blessings.

 

God has amazing things for you and for me. It’s time to stop looking at the negative. I’m going to preach this throughout 2018 … stop dwelling on the bad things and start praising God for the good things.

 

As I close this, I want to wish you all the best during the holidays, from my family to yours. I love you all.

Rob Patz writes his Thanksgiving prayer

Rob Patz writes his Thanksgiving prayer

It is hard to believe that it is already the month of November and almost Thanksgiving. By the time you read this, Creekside 2017 will almost be in the books. I want to invite you right now to make plans to be with us for Creekside 2018.

I was sitting here and pondering the month of November, the month with the holiday we celebrate here in the United States as Thanksgiving. I am thankful for many things throughout this year … thankful for health and the health of my family, for the many blessings that God has provided throughout this year in so many different areas of my life. I’m thankful for the country that I live in and the freedom that I have to write to you without fear of it being censored. I’m thankful for those that have the right to protest. I’m also thankful for those who fight for that right for those to protest and for people like me to write what is on my heart.

Rob Patz writes his Thanksgiving prayer

Rob Patz

In the society that we live in, we have to understand that the checks and balances that are there, are there for a reason. If we believe in freedom of speech, or the freedom of the written word, we also must allow those that don’t agree with us that same right to be able to protest or write about their feelings. I think if you asked anyone who has served this country, they would tell you they fight for everyone, not just those that they agree with.

I know that it’s popular right now to bash those who disagree with us. I find that to be very foolish. In any area of our life, if we don’t learn to love and accept those around us, how are we ever going to reach them with the message of the cross? I think it’s time that we stop making the world “us against them.” It will take all of us together to create an atmosphere of love, not hate.

As I sit here and write this, my Thanksgiving prayer this year is for each and every one of us to stop and agree to disagree. To disagree is only natural. Each of us has been raised differently. We come from different socioeconomic backgrounds. We even come from different churches, but I want to challenge you today to stop looking for the negative and start looking for the positive. Start believing in your fellow man and in the person that lives next door. The only way we’re ever truly going to be able to show Jesus to anyone is to first show them that we care.

I hope that each and every one of you have a blessed Thanksgiving. I know I’m already excited about the pumpkin pie, and I’m also excited about Southern Gospel Weekend in Oxford, Ala., from March 1-3, 2018. Come and be with us.

Nashville, TN (November 1, 2017) Butler Music Group works with many of the top artists in Southern Gospel Music and the 2017 Diamond Awards honored many BMG artists last night. BMG entered the night with seven artists nominated in eleven categories and walked away winning six.

The Williamsons have built a reputation as the best mixed-quartet in Southern Gospel Music and last night they were awarded as Mixed Group of the Year. Sadie Williamson was also a special part of the night as she was the official “trophy girl.”

Heaven’s Mountain Band showed why they are mentioned along artists such as the Primitives and Issacs. They brought home multiple awards, Album of the Year, “This Old House of Mine,” and Song of the Year, “I’ll Ride This Ship to the Shore.” They were also nominated for Bluegrass Gospel Artist of the Year.

Sacred Harmony has been quickly catching the eyes
