Members of Thomas Road Baptist Church in Lynchburg, VA, the home of Liberty University, have been challenged. Pastor Jonathon Falwell, son of the church’s founder, Jerry Falwell, has asked to multiple campus congregations to think: ‘What If…?’
There was no better choice to kick off the series than TaRanda Greene. TaRanda traveled to Virginia to join worship leader Charles Billingsley along with the TRBC choir and orchestra for a morning full of praise and worship.
Each music selection revolved around the central theme of declaring God as Holy and culminated with focus on the Cross. TaRanda joined the praise team in leading the congregation with “You are Holy” and “For You are Holy”.
Ramping up the music with the stage lighting turning red, TaRanda sang “The Wonderful Cross” with Billingsley and the entire TRBC Worship Team. The biggest treat came when TaRanda began “This Blood”. Her exquisite vocal ranges made every listener feel the power of Jesus blood. At the bridge, the full choir joined while everyone in the room was standing. TaRanda clearly shared her heart in the words, “I’ve come to tell you He’s alive! And, He’s coming back again”!
TaRanda Greene, a young girl from Tennessee met and fell in love with a Gospel singer, and together they became The Greenes. Just four years ago this week, Tony Greene was called to glory. What if God took this young woman and brought her to many stages beside her husband, and then left her alone to raise two young daughters? Surrounded by loving family and countless fans, TaRanda has faced every challenge with the strength she gets from the Lord.
Recently, TaRanda made her first pilgrimage to Israel with In Touch Ministries. “I never imagined a piece of land could change my life,” stated Greene. “I knew that Jesus changed my life years ago, but the experience of walking in His steps…wow!” Greene is still continuing to process all the feelings from the experience.
Watch for new music coming from TaRanda Greene and Stow Town Records. This new solo project encompasses several music genres. It is entirely possible that songs will appear on various charts. “I’m very excited to see where God will open new doors”, Greene commented. This project is set to release November 10.
Like everyone who was in attendance at Thomas Road Baptist Church, TaRanda Greene left Virginia asking, “What if….”
