Lee University To Host EVS Worship Night

Thursday, October 3, 2019 - by Kendyl Wadley, Lee University

The Lee University Evangelistic Singers (EVS) will host “Free Worship Night” on Saturday, Oct. 12, at 7 p.m. in Pangle Hall. Along with EVS, this night of worship will feature gospel singers Taron Berry, Benita Jones, and Jonathan Nelson.

“I thank God for this exciting door of opportunity that God has opened for EVS,” said Gloria Scott-Richmond, EVS director. “I’m humbled, honored, and grateful to witness God’s faithfulness and favor toward this phenomenal ensemble. Every day, on and off stage they represent our Lord, their families, and Lee University with class, integrity, and great enthusiasm!”

EVS members worship God through traditional and contemporary gospel music. The choir, made up of approximately 50 Lee students, has performed throughout Bermuda, the Caribbean, and southeastern United States.

Pastor Berry currently serves as the worship pastor at Mt. Canaan Cleveland, a new Saturday church plant in Cleveland. Over the years, Pastor Berry has served many ministries, pastors, and recording artists.

Ms. Jones is a worship leader who entered the gospel music scene in 2004 with her debut release “Hold On,” which hit the Billboard charts and was number six on Top Gospel Albums. She was a background vocalist for CeCe Winans, joining her for Winans’ Throne Room Tour in 2005. She founded evolveU Worship in 2017, serving as a consultant and clinician to music ministries across the nation.

Mr. Nelson is a songwriter and producer from Baltimore, Md. He studied choir at the Baltimore School for the Arts and Morgan State. His music career began with his vocal ensemble Purpose, and their album “Healed.” Mr. Nelson’s own debut albums include “Better Days,” “Finish Strong,” and “Declarations.” 

“It is a blessing to partner in ministry with these great artists,” said Ms. Scott-Richmond. “They represent the very best in the gospel music industry, and I look forward to an exciting, life-changing evening of worship on Oct. 12.”

Admission is free and open to the public, but registration is required and can be found at www.eventbrite.com/mountcanaancleveland. Pangle Hall is on the corner of Church Street and Central Avenue.
