Rhonda Frye’s Latest Single Released Through Patterson Promotions

Written by SGN Scoops on August 22, 2011 – 10:02 am -

{EHA-Nashville, TN} Rhonda Frye’s latest single, “Come to Me” is being well-received by radio, as it was released through Patterson Promotions this month. This is Rhonda’s second release from her first album, Second Chances, recorded and produced by Steve Babb and Fred Schendel of Sound Resources in Chattanooga. “I was inspired to write ‘Come To Me’ following a conversation with a long-time friend who had been diagnosed with stage 4 colon cancer. She explained how she was strong during the day, but fell apart during the night hours. This song was intended to be a sweet dose of truth to soothe the spirit,” Rhonda notes.
 Rhonda not only has made an impact in the Gospel Music industry as a gifted singer and songwriter, but has quickly gained a new fan-base by coordinating the news of other fellow artists when she accepted the position of Editor-and-Chief of SGNScoops Magazine.
Pauline Patterson notes, “I have been honored to have Rhonda’s music on our compilations that we send out to radio. She has what I like to call the “right stuff;” a spirit for the ministry, good songs, and a great voice.” A fan recently noted, “The spirit of Rhonda comes through in her songs. I attended a concert recently and her music is so refreshing and uplifting.” Rhonda has been instrumental in directing, coordinating, and promoting the music program at her home church, Rockpointe, in Fort Oglethorpe, GA.
Rhonda is scheduled to sing during the National Quartet Convention in the Patterson Promotions Radio Breakfast Showcase on Thursday morning. For more info on Rhonda Frye Music Ministries:

Written by SGN Scoops on July 24, 2011 – 8:04 pm -

D. Keith Jones, Senior Pastor of Rock Pointe Church in Fort Oglethorpe, GA has released his second book entitled “Sheriff Adonia- The Showdown at Rock Pointe.”  Sheriff Adonia was published by Foresight Publishing and is a story about a young man trying to stay one step ahead of the law, a shattered past and a stranger that is relentless in pursuing him.  The setting is the Old West, back in the 1800’s.  “Sheriff Adonia” is action filled, romantic, mysterious and Christian! 

“This story was given to me by God in the middle of the night last October.  In addition to being an interesting story, I hope and pray the reader discovers a new perspective about God, forgiveness and harboring anger.  I pray that after reading the book someone will think about their own relationship with God and consider the option of surrendering their own life to Him.”- D. Keith Jones

“It was such great fun to have a small part of working with Pastor Keith on this book!  He is an exceptional and creative writer. ‘Sheriff Adonia- Show-down at Rock Pointe’  is action packed from page one and is bound to strike at every emotion keeping the reader on the edge of their seat with tissue in hand!  I’m convinced many hearts will be moved and lives transformed with Pastor Keith’s new literary work of art!” – Rhonda Frye Music Ministries
