An Awesome Birthday

An Awesome Birthday

An Awesome Birthday

From James Rainey

This was supposed to be a routine eye exam today. This Dr. from Taiwan, pulls out his Bible and started sharing the Word of God with me. Why can’t we all do this? He is from another country, and is more proud of God than we are! What a great Birthday gift to sit in a chair and get told how good God is.

 

Happy Birthday My Friend

Roger Talley devotes his talents to beloved hymns on Timeless Piano Classics

Arden, North Carolina  — One of Southern Gospel music’s most noted pianists, Roger Talley, devotes his talents to beloved hymns on Timeless Piano Classics, a moving collection of reverent music, now available on all streaming platforms.

With songs like “Tell Me The Story Of Jesus / I Love To Tell The Story,” “Tis So Sweet,” and “Since Jesus Came Into My Heart,” the full instrumental album of traditional songs is familiar, providing the same sense of comfort felt in church pews. Known for his simple yet elegant use of chords, Roger puts a spotlight on the beauty of each hymn. The simplicity allows for quiet reflection and humble worship.

Other songs include “God Will Take Care of You / God Leads Us Along,” “Sweet Hour of Prayer,” “This Is My Father’s Word,” “Now I Belong To Jesus,” “Everybody Ought To Know,” “On Hallowed Hill (UT Alma Mater) / Tennessee Waltz,” “Savior Like A Shepherd Lead Us / He Leadeth Me,” “Fairest Lord Jesus,” and “Does Jesus Care.”

“I learned to love hymns listening to my grandmother play the old upright piano in her ‘parlor.’ It was a special treat to hear her play the stately hymns that we seldom sang at our church,” says Talley. “I love the lyrics and the beautiful music and the comfort that these classic hymns contain. I hope they sing to your soul as I play them.”

Listen to Timeless Piano Classic HERE.

The Harvesters Announce New Member

The Harvesters Announce New Member

The Harvesters Announce New Member

The Harvesters are very excited to announce that Brendan Parker from Raleigh, N. C., is their new lead singer. Carrying on the Parker family tradition to another generation, Brendan is the nephew to Danny Parker and Ivan Parker, and brother to Chris Parker, who sings bass for Carolina Vocal.

Brendan knew at an early age just how important music was to him. Growing up around gospel music set him on a path to use his voice to carry on a tradition of worship and praise, quartet style. Brendan joined his dad, Charles Parker in their own quartet, “Arise,” for 10 years before the quartet disbanded. He is excited to be joining his Uncle Danny and the Harvesters.

Brendan accepted Christ as his personal Savior at an early age and is thankful to serve in gospel music once again. Brendan and his wife, Jessica, make their home in Raleigh, N. C., with their three daughters and one son.

Brendan joins the Harvesters filling the vacancy left by Allen Hunter who retired from the quartet. Plans are for Brendan to fill the lead singer slot and Danny will move to the baritone position.

Danny of the Harvesters states, “We are excited to have Brendan as a member of the Harvesters. He not only has a tremendous voice but his walk with God is portrayed with his witness and testimony.”

Brendan and Allen will both be singing at the Parker Homecoming 2019, in Sanford, N. C., on Mar. 15 and 16, 2019, and would appreciate seeing you at the concert.

Please join the Harvesters in welcoming Brendan and his family to the group. We invite you to come and hear the Harvesters in their new season of music and ministry.

Sincerely,
Danny Parker

The Wright Family

The Wright Family

Benefit concert at Redemption Christian Center. 1209 North Vanwert Rd, Villa Rica, GA Saturday, February 23, 2019 @ 5:00 The Paul Family, The Wright Family and many other artists. Come expecting a Blessing. Concessions available!!

This Go Fund Me Account is set up to assist with the final expenses, such as hospital, doctor and funeral expenses for Pastor James Wright. He founded Redemption Christian Center, January 2006. Since that time he has led his congregation in purchasing land and constructing a new sanctuary. His goal was to have the sanctuary to be debt free upon completion. His dream was fulfilled December 22, 2018 when Redemption Christian Center was granted an occupancy permit. Pastor James had the privilege of attending the new sanctuary on three different occasions before his death.

Memorial Day James began having symptoms of nausea and severe pain. His doctors began immediate tests to check for heart issues. When those tests came back negative more tests began. CT Scans, Biopsy’s, Pet Scan and others until he was diagnosed with Hepatocellular Carcinoma. From the date of his diagnoses until his death was a period of only three months.

James was not only the Senior Pastor to Redemption Christian Center, he was also a member of The Wright Family and traveled many years with his family ministering and singing Southern gospel. He was a member of the Southern Gospel Promoters Association (SGPA) and had served as Chaplain for the past 5 years.

Many years ago James had taken an insurance policy so that his family would not be left with a final expense at his passing away, however, due to his age the policy was no longer in effect leaving no insurance coverage at his death.

Go HERE To Give

Change For 3rd Row Boys

Written by SGN Scoops Staff on February 18, 2019 – 10:33 am -

Change For 3rd Row Boys

Change For 3rd Row Boys

Throughout the history of 3RB, God has orchestrated some very interesting and wonderful changes. About 3 years ago when we decided to venture into the world of southern gospel radio, little did we know what God would reveal to us! He has blessed us so richly since then, and has opened doors to many new opportunities and experiences. We’ve met so many new people and been able to sing in some truly memorable places! We’ve even had our very first top 40 song! God is good!! We know that there are even more wonderful things in store and we are excited to see them happen!

One thing in store for us is another change. After almost 5 years of singing with 3RB, Josh Ranke has decided it is time for him to step down. As many of you know, he and his beautiful wife Katie just welcomed their first child Alexis in October after a very tedious pregnancy. God blessed them with a beautiful and healthy baby girl, and their story has become a very powerful testimony in our concerts. However, it also was the beginning of God revealing new plans that He has in store for Josh and Katie. For those of you who know Josh well, you know he has a HUGE heart for ministry and seeing souls saved. So much so, that he is willing to sacrifice anything to see people come to Christ, especially youth. With the increased reach and travel of 3RB, Josh feels he needs to step away in order to have time to move into other areas of ministry that God is presenting to him. We love Josh and Katie so much and know that they are truly following God’s leading. We will miss them dearly, but we can’t wait to see what’s in store for them as well as 3RB!

So now we are preparing for our next chapter. We are starting our search immediately but are VERY thankful that Josh has decided to stay on board until we find a new vocalist. He feels very adamant about the future of 3RB and wants to make sure we have plenty of time to find the right man to take his place. We are very grateful for Josh staying on board until then because we want to make sure we find the perfect fit! With that being said, we will be holding auditions over the next few months as we anticipate an exciting new season for 3RB! If you or someone you know is interested and feel would be a good fit for our group, please send us an MP3 or video of you singing, along with a pic and brief history of your ministry experience. Please email it all to info@3rdrowboys.com and we will be in touch with you if we’d like to know more and set up an audition. We have some exciting times ahead of us and can’t wait to see who God has in store for it all!

Thank you all for your continued prayers, love and support! We do appreciate your prayers that we will be very God honoring in our search for a new vocalist, and that our hearts will be patient for that man that He has planned for us. In the meantime, if we are in your area soon, please be sure to join us so you can see Josh and give him well wishes for his bright future! God bless you all!

Pray For Josh Townsend

From Legacy Five

Would y’all please say a prayer for JT? After our concert tonight, while loading our equipment, he had another seizure. We called for an ambulance, the EMT checked him out and said that he is ok to travel the 5 hours to Nashville. He has an appointment with his doctor first thing tomorrow. Let’s let him know we are praying for him and encourage him in the comments on this post.
