Last year’s concert had the audience clapping, praising and rejoicing. This year’s repertoire promises to be another spiritual, soul stirring musical experience. There will be a freewill offering. The funds raised will go towards our church’s support for several ministries including eleven (11) Historically Black Colleges and the Africa University Fund that educates students from 21 African countries.
