Thomas Road Baptist Church and Liberty University is all abuzz this week with anticipation of An Evening of Worship with Guy Penrod, Friday, October 3. Dress rehearsals at the church are on track for Thursday as LU students prepare to lend choral arrangement vocals for the event.
The Dove Award and Grammy Award winning vocalist Guy Penrod said, â€œGoing to Lynchburg is a lot like going Home!â€
While attending college in Lynchburg at Liberty Baptist College (now Liberty University) Guy displayed his talent with the Sounds of Liberty. He quickly became a favorite of Thomas Road Baptist Church and Libertyâ€™s student body. Shortly after graduating, Guy and wife Angie found their way to Nashville. It was there, that work as a studio vocalist led to the invitation to become the lead singer for theÂ Gaither Vocal Band.Â
Guy has now established a solo ministry that has him booking dates internationally. With that unmistakable voice and the ability to communicate like few others can, you do not want to miss the singer recognized around the world on his special night back home.
Each time Guy comes home to Lynchburg it is an extraordinary evening. Guyâ€™s normal program takes a back seat when he comes home to Lynchburg. October 3, 2014 will be a wonderfully unique night of Praise and Worship to the King as Guy performs favorites from his debut albumÂ ‘Breath Deep’, selections from the award winningÂ ‘Hymns’Â album and his current project releaseÂ ‘Worship’.
When Â Penrod graces the stage at the famed Thomas Road Baptist Church, he will be joined on stage by a 240-voice choir, live background singers (coming in from Nashville just for the night) and an extensive band of Nashville best musicians.
The powerhouse vocalist wishes just one thing for the night â€œâ€¦..to join the younger generation and the older generation in one unified voice, lifting praise to the KING OF KINGS. We are going to mix Hymns and Worship songs for a wonderfully unique night of WORSHIP to the LORD. So everybody come join us. I would love to see you there.â€
Byron Davis with Lift HIM Up Events told SGN Scoops that they are thrilled to invite everyone to this special DVD taping with Gaither Music Group.
Plan to be in Lynchburg, Va., October 3rd â€“ 6:30 pm at the Worship Center at Thomas Road Baptist Church. Tickets are still available!
