//Summer Tour Dates//

You all may have been wondering if we were still planning on leaving this year for our summer tour-the answer is "yes!" We are heading out this week and are very excited to see what the Lord is going to do as we avail ourselves to him! Most of the concerts are still going on as planned and we'd love to see YOU at one of them!  Click here to view our concert dates and comment below if we'll be seeing you at a concert. If you are from Indiana, Michigan, or New York, we look forward to seeing you in the next two weeks!
"O come, let us sing unto the Lord: let us make a joyful noise to the rock of our salvation. Let us come before his presence with thanksgiving, and make a joyful noise unto him with psalms."
Psalm 95:1-2

  1. You all are coming like two or so hours away from where I live! Too bad Kokomo isn't in Southern Indiana.

    1. That's too bad we aren't singing closer to you, but if you up for a drive we'd love to see you! We will be coming to southern Indiana in January so be watching our schedule!

  3. It is neat that you all will be touring over the summer! I would love to come to one of your concerts, but they are in states very far from me. However, I will be praying that the Lord keeps y'all safe and will be able to use your gifts of music to encourage & bless others! :)

  4. Your concert in White Pigeon, MI is a hour and half from me. If only it were closer! You wouldn't consider Holland, MI sometime, would you?

  5. I know, in your blog, you have referred to COVID-19 as hype, but I'm just wondering how you reconcile the Biblical command to obey governing authorities (1 Peter 2:13-14 and Romans 13:1-2) with your choice to completely disregard executive orders that have been put in place by governors. For example, you are holding two concerts in New York next week, despite concerts being currently prohibited in New York. (Folks in the state are also still under mandate to maintain a distance of at least 6 ft. among all individuals at all times, to wear masks if the 6 ft. distance cannot be maintained, and to maintain a distance between individuals of 12 ft. during any singing activity.)

    The Bible says we are to "be subject unto the higher powers. For there is no power but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God: Whosoever therefore resisteth the power, resisteth the ordinance of God." Shouldn't Christians, therefore, obey the law, even if they disagree with it?

  6. Thanks for your comments! It is definitely important to always look at what the Bible has to say on all issues. Obviously, the current situation with COVID-19 is very unique and, at times, quite confusing! We appreciate your willingness to share your opinion. In the Bible there are clear cases in which Biblical role models went against authority (Jesus in the temple, Peter and the apostles in Jerusalem, Elijah to Ahab etc.) so we know that we should not obey all authorities in all cases. We felt like going ahead with a few of our concerts was the best choice in this situation!
