IMC CONCERTS ANNOUNCES PLANS FOR PRAISEFEST BRANSON FALL RETREAT

IMC CONCERTS ANNOUNCES PLANS FOR PRAISEFEST BRANSON FALL RETREAT

Johnson City, Tennessee – Prominent concert promotions company, IMC has announced plans to present a new Praisefest event in Branson, MO, in the fall of 2020. Eight years ago the successful promotions team conceived the idea of presenting an exciting weekend of Gospel music in the Ozark Mountains town of Branson, Missouri, a city that is famously known for its diverse entertainment theaters. That first year the event took place at the state-of-the-art Mansion Theatre.

Due to the overwhelming success of the event, which has been held annually each Spring for the past seven years, IMC Concerts has announced plans to  produce a Praisefest event that will also take place in the Fall of the year. The new Praisefest Branson Fall Retreat will take place October 26 through 28, 2020, and will also be held at the Mansion Theater.
“We think this new event will be a great choice for people who have told us their schedules simply will not allow them to come to our Spring event,” states IMC President Landon Beene. “We also believe many of the people who attend Praisefest Branson every year in March will want to come back again for the Fall Retreat because they love it so much.”
The 2020 Praisefest Branson Fall Retreat will include performances by such popular recording artists as Greater Vision, The Triumphant Quartet, The Hoppers, The Isaacs, The Whisnants, The Perrys, Brian Free & Assurance, The Nelons, The Ball Brothers, Joseph Habedank and The Erwins. Renowned speaker, Jim Cymbala, Pastor of The Brooklyn Tabernacle in Brooklyn, N.Y., will also be featured, as well as popular singer/songwriter and Christian comedian, Mark Lowry. “We’re really excited to be able to provide another opportunity for people to get together for a few days to enjoy some great Gospel music, lots of laughs, great fellowship and wonderful worship experiences in a unique atmosphere,” states Greater Vision’s Gerald Wolfe.
“This event has the potential to be the largest Gospel music event of its kind in the Midwest during the Fall season,” Beene states. “We are expecting seating to fill quickly so we are recommending people reserve their seats sooner, rather than later.” Registrations for this new event will begin Monday, October 7, 2019.
Make plans now to be a part of the first ever 2020 Praisefest Branson Fall Retreat. Complete information regarding the event is available at www.imcconcerts.com or www.PraisefestBranson.com.

JONATHAN WILBURN TO HOST JACKIE WILBURN MEMORIAL SPRING SING DURING SOUTHERN GOSPEL WEEK IN SMITH COUNTY

Event set to take place April 25-28 

Carthage, TN – The Jackie Wilburn Memorial Spring Sing kicks off April 25 at the Smith County Agricultural Center in Carthage, TN, with several of Southern Gospel Music’s most popular and talented recording artists taking the stage to honor the memory of the late Jackie Wilburn. The event will take place four straight days, April 25 through 28, and will be hosted by Jackie’s son, Jonathan.
“My dad was not only a wonderful, anointed preacher of the Gospel for many years but he was the patriarch of the Wilburns,” Jonathan shares. “He truly ‘walked the walk’ and set a tremendous example for my brothers and me, and it is an honor to carry on the rich heritage that  he set for us.”
In honor of this exciting event, Smith County has deemed the week of April 22 as Southern Gospel Week for Smith County.
In the 1980s, Jackie and his wife, Elaine, began touring and singing with their sons, as The Wilburns. The family achieved national prominence throughout two decades, enjoying such hit songs as “Outside The Gate,” When Dust Shall Sing” and “Resting Place.”

Please Pray For The Perrys

Andrew Goldman

From Libbi

The Perrys concert for tonight in Richmond, IN has been canceled due to an accident this morning about 6:30AM in Indianapolis. A tire came off of a Jeep going in opposite direction as our bus, the tire came across the concrete barrier on the interstate and hit our bus on the drivers side window shield. Andrew was driving and it’s a miracle that he kept the bus under control enough to get it off the interstate. Had the tire came in 6 inches higher, our story this morning would be one of disaster. But, GOD!!! Andrew will be going to the hospital when he gets home to be checked out in his lungs as he has been coughing up shards of glass. Please pray for us as we are trying to get back home to NASHVILLE so we can finish out the remaining dates for the weekend.

Please pray!

”Heaven Gained A Hero”-Prayers for The Perrys

Written by scoopsnews on February 4, 2018 – 3:50 am -

Heaven gained a hero and a saint of God at 2:54am!! As family gathered to sing Tracy home, he passed while I held him in my arms. It didn’t take long until shouting and rejoicing started in the ICU room because we know Tracy has gained his glorified body. Arrangements will be announced soon, but a service will be held in Hendersonville, TN. All glory be to God, we’ve come too far to turn back now.

Libbi

Please Stop What You Are Doing Right Now And PRAY for Libbi and Tracy

Written by scoopsnews on February 3, 2018 – 9:28 am -

From Libbi:

Tracy Stuffle Update: 2/3/18
Where do I even begin with this update?!?!?
My heart is soooo torn into pieces right now. On Monday evening Tracy had a massive grand mal seizure. He was taken to a near by hospital where he seized for over an hour. A 10 or 12 team of drs and nurses worked on him for 2 hours to get him stable before transporting him to Centennial Hospital in Nashville. All beds were full at St Thomas Midtown where he normally goes. When transported to Centennial another set of drs and nurses worked on him and ran numerous tests on him. He was immediately put in ICU on a ventilator, Tracy was at that time was unresponsive. Drs have worked with him for the past 5 days doing everything they can to get him to respond in some way. But, nothing has worked. We (me, Jared and Tracy’s dad George) have made the decision to take Tracy off the ventilator today around 1PM cst. Drs feel that Tracy’s life would be as it is now if left on the vent. Y’all know me, I have fought tooth and toenail for my man over the past 5 years!! I made him a promise 5 years ago when he came home from having the stroke that I would carry him on my back if that’s what it took to give him a life he deserved. I have tried with every fiber within me to do just that!!! I can’t even start to imagine my life, our lives without him!!!! We have fought soooo many storms of life together. For 25 years it was just me and him, living life and Lovin it. Then God blessed us with the most incredible son, then we became the three stooges in life!!!! Always living life to its fullest! Tracy always wanted to have a little girl, so God sent Lindsey to our family as Jared’s wife. Tracy was beyond thrilled!! He finally got his little girl!! He loved and adored her sooooo much and told her so!! We became the fabulous 4 ( well 7 counting the fur babies)! We have leaned on each other in the good times and bad! Now………….our lives are fixing to change again…………….but, without our main man, my husband, JK and Lindsey’s dad.
Y’all our extended family have been soooo incredible to hold us up before God, can I ask you again to please, please, please hold us up in these next few days and in the days ahead of us?!?!? My faith and trust in Jesus is still as strong as ever!!! We pray His will and not ours!!! God has been incredible to us in the past 5 years, and I know He will give us grace, comfort and mercy through this season in our lives!! — with Tracy Stuffle.
