Beyond the Song: The King Family sings A Trip To The Altar

The King Family

Beyond the Song with Jantina Baksteen

I recently came into contact with Caleb King of the King Family. At the time, it seemed like it happened in error; but for God, there‘s no mistakes, and I believe he put all of this together. When you hear the song The King Family has recorded called, “A Trip To The Altar,” you will understand why I know it was God who orchestrated our conversation. I hope you’ll enjoy this interview.

Jantina Baksteen: You are no strangers to Gospel music fans. But for those who don’t know you, will you please share your family’s ministry with SGNScoops?

Caleb King: We have actually been doing family ministry for as long as I can remember. My dad, Earl King, Sr., was the pastor at Cold Springs Baptist church for about 23 years and we would sing as a family there.

JB: When did your journey of gospel music evangelism begin?

CK: Back in 2014, I took a step of faith and did my first solo album called, “Glory to His Name.” I had wanted to get in the ministry for singing since I was a little boy. At a CD release party my church had for me, mom, Vicky King, and dad helped me sing some songs that night, and then they started traveling with me after that night.

Eventually, our schedule was getting pretty busy, so dad decided to step down as pastor and his assistant, Oliver Dills, stepped in. On March 1st, 2016, I finally surrendered (to) my call to preach a call. I had been running from (this) since I was a freshman in high school. Later on that year, Cold Springs Baptist Church ordained me as a traveling evangelist. Unfortunately, not long after, our beloved pastor Oliver came down with brain cancer, and Dad and I stepped in to the pastoral roll, while his dear friend for many years began a battle we’ve all been touched by. For about a year and a half, we were helping each other with the pastoral duties, as (dad) had been one for 23 years. It was a great growing opportunity for me to learn and have my father as my mentor. Unfortunately, his dear friend and our dear pastor wouldn’t get the healing we were hoping for, but rather got the ultimate and complete healing as the Lord called him home. A few months after Ollie had passed away, a man named David Postell stepped behind the pulpit and rather then campaign for an opening position, he preached as a pastor should. A few months later, we elected him as our pastor and we were able to hit the road again, spreading the gospel of Jesus through preaching and song. Our home church is still Cold Springs Baptist; when we’re not on the road, that’s where you’ll find us supporting our new friend and pastor, David.

King FamilyJB: You have a great song out entitled, “A Trip To The Altar.” Is there a story to share about when and how you felt the calling on your heart to make that trip?

CK: “A Trip To The Altar,” is a song we’ve got quite a bit of radio time with, even though we haven’t officially released it with anyone yet. The Lord has just blessed us. It’s an old Hinson song that Ronnie wrote. I loved the Hinsons! Our producer, Shane Roark, suggested I sing that song and I fell in love with it when I first heard it.
I never will forget the night I got saved! I was a five year old boy and I actually was at home, so I’m thankful we serve a God that you can make an altar wherever you’re at and he’ll find you! I was taking a bath and it just hit me does Jesus love me? My heart began to beat out of my chest and I screamed for my sister Hilary Bumgarner (now – it used to be King). I still say King sometimes when I introduce her. She wrapped me in a towel, took me into the living room on a Friday night. And as I sat in Dad’s lap, I began to feel the love of Jesus move into my heart and I’m so thankful the answer was yes, Jesus did love me, and he loves everyone so much that he gave his life for us! That’s why I want to live my life for him. That’s when I made my trip to the altar and got saved.

JB: What is what you felt or experienced after you surrendered your life to Christ?

CK: Being saved at a young age, the older I got, I kind of didn’t take my faith as seriously as I should have. There’s a difference in being saved, and being sold out and fully surrendered to God’s plan and will for your life. I went through a time when I was in high school when friends on the baseball team would come to church and I would literally fight back tears and worship because I didn’t want them to make fun of me. But then something happened one night and God put me in a dry season. I would go to church and we would have good services but I couldn’t feel his presence; I couldn’t even get my eyes to water. It’s a miserable place to be in when you’re saved because I didn’t know what to do. God sometimes uses valleys and mountains, and in my case, dry spells, to get our attention. That lasted for about a year and a half, and finally in a revival service one night, the spirit was moving and I went to the altar and just prayed and told the Lord I’m so tired of this dry spell I begged God to (feel) his presence like I did the night I got saved, and if he’d give me my tears back, I’d never hold one back again. So I cry a lot when I preach or sing but I’m so thankful that (I) can!

JB: Who is the writer of that song?

CK: Ronnie Hinson wrote “A Trip To The Altar,” and it’s such a true song. The Lord has blessed me and I’ve got to go to a lot of places and see a lot of things, do a lot of things, I’ve wanted to do. But nothing even comes close to the night I got saved or a night when his presence shows up at a singing. Nothing beats being in the presence of the almighty King.

JB: Have you actually experienced somebody go to the altar after singing that song?

CK: We have had several people go to the altar when we sing this song. A few have gotten saved and a few have rededicated their lives and some come to the altar just to praise Jesus. It’s a song that’s a great reminder of the night people got saved or at least (it is) for me. Anytime I’m down or sad, I just think about the night I got saved and realize there’s no (reason) to be down, because we’ve got the victory through Jesus Christ, if you’re one of his children.

JB: As the whole world is struggling with this pandemic, is there something you have learned during this time, as we all have to go back to the basics?

CK: The pandemic really hit us hard but not as hard as some other groups, thankfully. We still have other jobs that helped us out a whole lot. But this new year we are doing some changes. I just turned 30 and am really wanting to be able to do ministry full time, to where I don’t have to worry about getting back to a job if a church decides it wants to keep us over for a revival, or something like that. Mom and dad are still going to travel some. My older brother, Earl King, Jr., who doesn’t travel with us, lives about three hours away,(with) his wife (and) two kids. So, mom and dad want to spend a little more time with them. So, I’ll be doing a lot more solo stuff, as I did when I first started back in 2014.
But the one thing I’ve learned, as I have time and time again, is we serve a faithful God! When it looks like it’s over and the end is near, he makes a way every time.

King FamilyJB: Do you have a message of hope to share for those who have no hope?

CK: Jesus! He’s the only hope you need. I could give such a long and precise answer to this question but it’s so simple. If you truly have all your hope and trust in Jesus, you’ll know how to (weather) your valleys and your storms because you’ll know he’s right there with you, through the good times and the bad.

Caleb King

JB: What is coming in the near future for The King Family?

CK: Just some more solo stuff on the horizon for me. And hopefully we’ll be getting back in the studio real soon with Chapel Valley. They do such a great job on everyone’s projects. We love them to death. And hopefully some new places to join with our singing friends. We love when we get to be with our friends at singings and sing together with them. I am hoping to start another singing around the Bryson City, North Carolina, area as well, so any supporters who would like to sponsor a group or something, (that) would be very helpful. It’s still in the early planning stages though.

JB: How can we reach you to get your music and maybe book you for a church service?

CK: Anyone who would like to get a hold of us can to to our Facebook page, The King Family, you can send us a message on there. Or you can call me at 828-736-0862. Just leave a message if I don’t answer. Hey, guess that’s another new thing, hopefully, on the horizon is getting a booking agent and a website.

 

We hope you enjoy the Kings Family, singing “A Trip to The Altar.”

 

Thank you, Caleb and The King Family, for sharing your ministry with SGNScoops. May the Lord shine down His blessing on your ministry.

Ernie Haase & Signature Sound Suspends 2020 Tour; Announces New Endeavor

Written by Staff on June 26, 2020 – 5:58 am -

Ernie Haase & Signature Sound Suspends 2020 Tour; Announces New Endeavor

Ernie Haase & Signature Sound

Stow, OH (June 25, 2020) – After much prayer, consultation and taking a long look at the big picture of how this Covid-19 crisis has impacted every aspect of our lives, I have made peace with the decision to suspend all EHSS touring for 2020. We are hopeful to resume touring in March 2021. However, should things dramatically change and we can all gather together sooner safely, you will be the first to know!

As a leader, I not only feel a responsibility for livelihoods, but also for the LIVES of everyone involved! I feel this for you too, the extended EHSS family whom we have come to love and adore. The concern for the health and safety of everyone is more important to me than trying to go forward with a tour.

I sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may cause you. Please know that we are working to reschedule our 2020 dates and look forward to seeing you all in 2021. Ticketing questions should be directed to the point of purchase.

Ernie Haase & Signature Sound Suspends 2020 Tour; Announces New Endeavor

Ernie Haase

The good news is we WILL carry on! We are taking this opportunity to expand our territory by turning our Friday evening “Ernie’s Living Room Sing” into a longer expanded weekly concert series/ TV/webisode.

The debut will be September 11, 2020 at 7:00 PM EST. We will start with a special themed program that you will NOT want to miss!

For now, these weekly programs will be broadcast on the EHSS Facebook fan page, as well as on my YouTube channel. I have tons of creative ideas that have me brimming with excitement!

In closing, many sweet people like you, for the last 33 years have asked me, “How can I help you, Ernie?” I have always said, “If I ever figure that out, I’ll let you know.” Here is how you can help: pray, spread the word, and “partner” with us by going to www.ErnieHaase.com and clicking on the PARTNER tab (Coming Soon). There, you will find out how you can help us make “Something Beautiful” out of this gift of crisis. I say “gift” because I truly believe this quote to be true:

“The Greek root of the word crisis is ‘to sift,’ as in to shake out the excesses and leave only what’s important. That’s what crises do. They shake things up until we are forced to hold on to only what matters most. The rest falls away.”- Glennon Doyle

As you can see, I have a lot of work to do. Do not think that I don’t have reservations; I am human. But I’d rather walk into what is possible with hope and faith in a divine plan than sit and cry over what used to be. That has never been me, and it is not going to be me now.

Thank you for your loving support…it’s time to WAKE UP and go to work.

Here we go!
Ernie

Godsey Media Announces Arize Partners Program

Written by Staff on June 17, 2020 – 3:36 pm -

Godsey Media Announces Arize Partners ProgramBridging the gap between the artist and the audience in a fresh way

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (June 16 2020)  – Scott Godsey of Godsey Media Management announces the beginning of a new era, Arize Partners.  Arize Partners strives to bring artists and audiences together as partners in ministry with exclusive access and content.
The new service is set to officially launch on Friday, June 19, 2020 at 5:00 PM ET with Brian Free and Assurance, Karen Peck and New River, 11th Hour, Tribute, Hoppers, Talleys, Aaron Wilburn, LeFevre Quartet, Whisnants, Nelons, Freemans, Abraham Productions and more to be featured.
Scott Godsey explains, “The last few months have taught us that we need each other now more than ever. Faith based music Artists that you know, love, follow, and support saw their livelihoods ripped away. Godsey Media stepped in quickly with The HopeSings Concert Series to raise financial support for them. Because of their supporters around the world, we were able to generate over $300,000.00 to help these artists get through the unique time of quarantine and social distancing.  We heard from many supporters that wanted to do more for the music that creates life change.
Godsey Media Announces Arize Partners ProgramScott and his team at Godsey Media saw the success of the HopeSings Concert Series and have worked to create a sustainable model that continues support for the artists as they start looking at what the new normal is going to become.  The idea is to create partnerships with access and benefits like never before. A true win-win for artists and supporters.  The team for music artists is expanding beyond the people singing the songs on stage.
Arize Partners is just that, a platform that creates a partnership between the audience and the artist they want to support. The partners will get exclusive access, music, concerts, merchandise, and so much more. You select a tier of support and then enjoy the benefits. In turn, the audience’s financial support helps the artist to have a solid foundation of income as well as the ability to go to churches and venues that could not cover their travel expenses.
Scott continues, “We believe that Arize Partners will allow our friends to keep ministering the Gospel through the reach of the internet regardless of the travel situation or lack of music sales. It will also allow audiences that love these artists the ability to stay connected on a regular basis and have unprecedented access to the music and the ministry.”

The Old Paths release What Love Does

Written by Staff on June 5, 2020 – 10:56 am -

The Old Paths release What Love DoesArden, North Carolina (June 5, 2020) — Following a year in which they released two albums and had a #1 song with “Come Sunday Morning,The Old Paths (website HERE), are sharing the many things God’s love can do on their new album, “What Love Does,” now available on all streaming platforms.

Each song captures the many ways God’s boundless love blesses each person, each day.

“What Love Does” begins with “This Is Amazing Grace,” telling of all that God has done so that we may live with love and grace. It’s followed by the first single, “I Got The Grace, He Gets The Glory,” a high-energy and upbeat song describing how God is always a solid foundation to stand on, despite sins and trials.

“When I heard this song, I couldn’t help but think that this is the theme for life as a believer,” says bass singer Daniel Ashmore who is featured on this song. “I can’t take credit for something I didn’t do and something I didn’t earn, therefore I get the grace and He gets the glory! That’s a message we want to share and this song sums it up perfectly.”

You Can’t Get Away From God,” written by Kenna Turner West, Sue C. Smith and Brian White and featuring Doug Roark, inspired the album’s title. Each verse tells vignettes of how people in tough places don’t think they’ll find relief, yet God is always there for comfort.

The powerful “Pray While You Wait” reminds that God’s timing is always perfect. When life feels impossible, know God will come through and you can always pray while you wait.

The Old Paths release What Love Does

Old Paths

Bread,” another upbeat song, illustrates how God can accomplish the impossible through the story of the loaves and fishes, while the instrumental “How Great Is Our God” — which features Ashmore on saxophone — allows listeners to feel the music, and pause to appreciate it.

Look At All I Lost” and the final song “Salvation’s Song” talk about no longer being lost after finding Christ, and being freed from guilt, shame and the weight of life. With powerful and moving vocals, these songs capture the theme of the album’s title — God’s love is capable of amazing things.

“We are so excited about this new album. The title ‘What Love Does’ is really the theme of the album, reflected in the song selection. We feel this is the best album we’ve done that really showcases our new sound with our current lineup,” says Ashmore. “Through our many failures and different circumstances in life, God exemplifies His love for us in His endless pursuit to save and change us. God is never late, and is always working all things for our good and His glory, because that’s what love does.”

Listen to What Love Does HERE.

About The Old Paths
In 2003, The Old Paths began its ministry taking the group’s name from Jeremiah 6:16 which says, “Thus saith the Lord, Stand ye in the ways, and see, and ask for The Old Paths, where is the good way, and walk therein, and ye shall find rest for your souls.” With this vision in mind and a heart for ministry, founding members Douglas Roark and Tim Rackley started The Old Paths as a trio.

The group morphed into a quartet shortly after. They signed with Crossroads Music’s Sonlite Records in 2012. Their album “Right Now” was a breakout project for them producing two #1 hits, “Battlestand” and “God’s Great,” within a six-month span. In 2013, the group was named Favorite New Quartet in the Singing News Fan Awards, and songs like “Love Them to Jesus” and “Ordinary People” also quickly became fan favorites.

The quartet made the decision in 2015 to come off the road for a while due to family circumstances. While the decision was not easy, they left the door open for a possible return to gospel music and touring. When God opened that door for them in 2017, they were ready to walk through it. With a renewed passion for ministry, The Old Paths took the stage again at the Memphis Quartet Show in June 2017.

The group now consists of founding members Tim Rackley and Douglas Roark, longtime bass singer Daniel Ashmore and tenor Steve Ladd.

Tim, Doug and Daniel found the right blend with Steve to be able to come together as The Old Paths again. The goal of the group has stayed the same after all these years to see people come to know Jesus Christ as Savior and to encourage fellow believers. They are thankful that God gave them the chance to return to the platform again to sing and encourage. They could not be more excited about this new stage of their ministry and to see what God has for the group in the future.

NASHVILLE, Tenn.— Guy Penrod, one of Gospel Music’s most awarded and best-loved vocalists, will be bringing his signature live performance experience to viewers around the globe June 21 as his “Concert On The Couch—A Father’s Day Celebration From Franklin Theatre” premiers for one-time online viewing at 7:00 pm Eastern Time. Virtual doors will open at 6:00 pm Eastern Time with special pre-show content. Filmed recently at the historic Franklin Theatre outside Nashville, Penrod’s “Concert On The Couch” is being made available in partnership with Thrive Media Streaming. Exclusive online viewing passes, available for a suggested donation of $5, can be reserved beginning tomorrow by registering at guypenrod.com.

“The last few months have been a challenging time for us all,” says Penrod. “I couldn’t think of a better way to reconnect with so many friends around the world than spending Father’s Day evening together. Just a few weeks ago, we filmed a memorable night of hymns, worship songs, and many of my favorites at the historic Franklin Theatre not far from my home. It is my prayer that hearts will be lifted and encouraged as we share a special time of song, laughter and celebration.”

“My heart goes out to so many who are suffering and enduring hardship during this season,” Penrod continues. “This is a way we can give back. Folks can register and kick back for a great night of music for just a $5 donation, or whatever they’d like to give. So, come join us on Father’s Day—we’ll just miss getting to hug your neck after the show.”

Featuring an all-star band, Penrod’s “Concert On The Couch” will include many classic songs of faith, including “Nothing But The Blood,” “I Surrender All” and “Leaning On The Everlasting Arms.” In addition, Penrod will revisit such concert favorites as “Pray About Everything” and “The Baptism of Jesse Taylor,” among others.

A member of the Gospel Music Hall of Fame (Gaither Vocal Band) and Texas Gospel Music Hall of Fame, Guy Penrod has performed at leading venues around the world, including The Grand Ole Opry House, Carnegie Hall and The Sydney Opera House, as well as appearing at CMA Music Fest and the 2017 Presidential Inauguration. With career sales of more than 4 million—including the Platinum-selling long-form video The Best of Guy Penrod—his recordings have set a standard for Gospel Music and consistently top Billboard sales charts.
