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.

Bob Tamasy: What If "Tomorrow" Never Comes

Most of us are amateurs at the majority of things we do. We try our best, but we’re not experts. But if there’s one thing many of us are pros at, it’s pro-crastinating. (Have you ever met an amateur-crastinator?) Tasks we dislike quite easily are delayed for another time. “Never do today what you can put off till tomorrow,” Aaron Burr is reputed to have said.

Steve Ellison: The High Cost Of Rebellion

False pride and rebellion against authority cause many of our problems. Adam and Eve rebelled against God’s clear command.

It is a sad fact of human nature, that when someone tells us what to do, we become at the least, defensive. Worse, we often go on the offensive. Who among us has ... (click for more)

The Wheel Tax Wouldn't Be A Sacrifice And Supports Our Teachers - And Response (9)

I appreciate our underpaid teachers here in Tennessee so much. We as a whole have a moral obligation to make sure we contribute to their pay. A wheel tax on our cars is a minimal expense to most of us. Sixty dollars is not enough for us to complain. We shouldn't even bat an eye at that if it contributes to the hard working teachers who sacrifice daily for our children. We ... (click for more)
