Susie and I raised our 5 children here at Union Valley, and now we're having grandchildren. Our kids are raising their children to know Jesus too. What a blessing Christian parents receive when they are truly committed to raising their children in a Bible believing church. After 30+ years at Union Valley, we're seeing the largest crowds ever at church. We’re just 10 minutes from Ada South on hwy 3. I hope you can join us.

Southern SONlight, The Williamsons, & The Russells all call Union Valley Home, and perform here frequently.

71:17 Youth Ministry, for 7th grade through college age, meets Sundays at 10am & 5pm and Wednesdays at 6:30pm. A few of our activities include basketball, games, movie & pizza nights, camps, concert trips, & more!

Come see what we’re all about at our next service!

The primary purpose of Spreading the WORD Ministry is to provide powerful, old-fashioned preaching through radio broadcasting. Preaching resulting in making saints from sinners and servants from saints. According to the WORD of God, preaching is the primary means to that end. "Preach the Gospel to every creature" is a command to every generation until Jesus comes again.

When I was asked to write this article I began to think about what I could write that would encourage the reader. Something that I have actually lived and done. I wanted to write something that I know that God has done for me or has shown me in His Word. So, I pray that what I feel God has laid on my heart to share with you, will be an encouragement to you. I know if you have been raised in church, been to revivals or even a good ole gospel singing, you have heard someone say this: "Friend, the world may change, you may change, but God never changes. God is the same yesterday, today, and forever." Well yes, He is the same God that He was yesterday and He will be the same today and forever. But, He also is the God of change. If you read the Word of God you will see that God changed circumstances/ people all the time. He changed this world He created. He changed lives. He changed names. He changed languages. He changed water to wine. The greatest change God did was when He changed the way we could be forgiven of our sins. Jesus Christ, God's only Son, changed everything. So, should change bring fear into our life? Should we be scared of changes in the ministry? Should we be afraid of a new path we must walk? Sometimes when change takes place we begin to question ourselves. We even question God. And, by the way, don't be afraid to ask God questions. Jesus questioned God. God simply said, "Ask and ye shall receive." So, when you need answers from God, ask the questions. You see, God not only changes your life but He's changing you everyday. Why? To make you more like Him. He uses these changes to get your heart and your mind to where He needs you. So that you can do mighty things for Him and for His glory. And, to reach those who are lost that you couldn't reach yesterday. He brings changes to your life to strengthen your faith and to trust in Him. When Jesus told the disciples to follow Him, He changed their lives, souls, and minds. But, everyday He was changing them. I believe 2018 is going to be a year of even more changes, and as changes come to our lives, let's not be afraid. Let God continue to change us to be more like Him. Let's walk the steps of change God allows. Let's be strong in the faith - Trust and Obey. Yes, I know this is easier said than done. I know when we wake up one day and we get news that changes everything in our lives we begin to let fear over take us. But, remember you can do all things through Christ Jesus who strengthens you. Remember Abraham was fully persuaded that God would do what He promised He would do. So, when God brings changes or allows something to take place in our lives, don't be discouraged. His eye is on the sparrow and His eye is on His children. Yes, I believe God is the God of change and when it's a God change, it's always a change for the best!

Michael English

The Williamsons

Like everyone else, Michael has traversed his fair share of valleys. While at a precipice of his musical success, life showed up in ways that forced Michael to step back, regroup and rediscover what it means to be truly dependent on Christ. Transparent about his own mistakes and struggles along the way, Michael can now authentically meet them at the intersection of grace and shame…as a living testimony of God’s promises to work all things for good. Today, Michael is singing with a wisdom that only life, trial and honesty can lend. It’s that same honesty and vulnerability that has allowed Michael to identify with, pray for and connect with people around the world who are struggling, who are flailing, who are…people. “I hear people leaving concerts saying that they were ministered to and touched by my story,” shares Michael. “They are telling me that they now have feelings of hope.”

The Williamsons began singing as a family group in 1969 with Woody and Pinky Williamson and their children Donnie and Tennie. Members of the Williamsons today include Donnie Williamson and his wife Lisa, Darin Hebert, and Karl Rice. With the goal of sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ, they have performed for thousands with their unique style of Christian music. They have a way of incorporating many musical styles into their program. They travel across the United States and around the world presenting their ministry in large concert halls, on cruise liners, and in churches of all sizes and denominations. Their missionary endeavors have seen thousands of lives changed. Devoted to God, family, and country, they live what they sing. They desire to see souls find the Lord, people encouraged, and provide quality Christian entertainment.

This year marks the 46th year that The Perrys have been traveling & sharing The Gospel of Jesus Christ. During that time, God has proven faithful to provide everything needed to build a successful ministry. From moving lyrics of traditional songs, to talented vocalists and musicians, to a genuine heart for people, The Perrys have proven they have what it takes to rise to the top of Southern Gospel music. What a journey it has been! Both fans and peers alike have recognized The Perrys for their talent and hard work. With countless honors, awards, and radio success, it is evident that The Perrys have been blessed, not only with musical abilities, but also the gift of communicating a message and touching lives. Now, after overcoming one of the biggest trials of their life, The Perrys have a renewed passion for encouraging others for Christ. As a dedicated team, The Perrys are excited to see what God has in store for the next 46 years!

Mary Fay Jackson

Three Bridges

The New Dove Brothers

Three Bridges’ music is rooted in traditional ”southern gospel” and ”black gospel” music. This blended style has made Three Bridges an internationally-acclaimed Gospel group — one that is known for tight harmonies, a unique vocal style, an energy packed stage presence and, most importantly, for spreading the joy of the Good News of Christ. They have entertained and ministered to millions through their recordings, TV appearances and live shows — which is why Three Bridges has quickly become one of the most prominent Gospel groups in Christian music today. Following the release of the critically-acclaimed debut album, Soldiers (2002), Three Bridges has wowed packed-out venues across the nation…from Gospel singings, business conventions, churches, political meetings, TV shows, charitable relief events – all the way to Air Force One! They have appeared on several Bill Gaither video tapings and were special guests on a video for the United Nation.

In 1998 a quartet was formed that took the Southern Gospel industry by storm. Bringing to the stage an excitement and a style that had not been seen since the glory days of gospel music. Now that McCray Dove, Tony Peace and Wesley Smith have joined together to form the New Dove Brothers it looks like history is repeating itself. McCray and Tony are known as two of the most exciting performers in the world of southern gospel music. Wesley Smith ties it all together with his smooth high tenor voice. The New Dove Brothers are committed to the cause of Christ and to keeping that classic southern gospel style and sound. With songs like Get Away Jordan and Didn't It Rain you can't help but to clap your hands and tap your feet and when The New Dove Brothers begin to sing the great hymns of the church your heart will be reminded why these songs are timeless. If you love harmony and high energy then you don't want to miss a New Dove Brothers concert.

MARY FAY JACKSON is a songwriter, recording artist, musician, television producer and promoter. She is the host of an award-winning television program now in its 2nd decade called Texas Country Gospel. The program airs on Family Friendly Entertainment and is broadcast over Glory Star Satellite, Promiseland Televi sion Network, and over 300 cable companies and independent TV stations, plus international broadcasts in India and the UK. Ms Jackson's signature song "Roses" is her most requested song in personal appearances. The song, written by Ms. Jackson and recorded on CD and also featured on video, charted #6 by the Coun try Gospel Music Guild as listed in U.S. Gospel News Magazine. Mary Fay Jackson has been the recipient of several prestigious awards by the International Country Gospel Music Association: Promoter of the Year 1996, Songwriter of the Year 1997, and the highest award Ms. Gold Cross Award 1998.

The Perrys


Ball Brothers

The Kingsmen Jeff & Sheri Easter

The Ball Brothers are two brothers, Andrew and Daniel Ball along with brother-in-law Chad McCloskey and newcomer, Matt Davis. The group travels world-wide, singing their distinctive brand of Christian music. When it comes to the Ball Brothers, forget what you know about other "gospel quartets." Because this unique group stands in stark contrast to many preconceived notions regarding traditional quartet music, the Ball Brothers have found life "outside of the box." Since their formation in 2006, the Ball Brothers have rapidly made their mark in Christian music by finding a musical balance between the old and the new. "...most places we go have a mixture of young, middle-aged, and older people. So, our music style and song selection is based around that blend. It's great to see a grandmother and granddaughter worshiping together and enjoying the same music. We get to see that on a regular basis."

For more than a half a century, no group has secured such a far reaching legacy like that of The Kingsmen Quartet. Since 1956, this group has risen from humble beginnings in the mountains of western North Carolina to one of the most beloved and innovative groups in Christian music. Countless renowned artists have been a part of this great lineage; such as Eldridge Fox, "Big" Jim Hamill, Ray Dean Reese, Squire Parsons, Johnny Parrack, Anthony Burger, Ernie Phillips, Gary Sheppard, and a host of others. The momentum has not stopped as this group continues to help define the Southern Gospel genre for a whole new gener ation of music lovers, perhaps more so than any other group. "The key is to never lose sight of what we are working towards" says Ray Reese. "We tour year in and year out to spread our music to people across the country. Our music has a message, the message of Christ.

For Jeff & Sheri, gospel music is genetically programmed into their DNA. As members of Je acclaimed musical families - Jeff’s father is one of the Easter Brothers and Sheri’s mother is a member of The Lewis Family - they grew up surrounded by the sound of people praising God through their musical gifts. Jeff & Sheri have been nominated for numerous Dove Awards and won six. They’ve also received a Grammy nomination, and Sheri has been named Singing News Favorite Alto eleven times and the Singing News Female Vocalist four times; among other awards. Apart from their frequent appearances on the Gaither Homecoming tour and videos, Jeff & Sheri have a fairly heavy touring schedule of their own. “When we perform, we want people to leave a little different than when they came in,” Sheri explains. “We want them to know God loves them and that He is in control.”

Chris Hester

The Freemans

Preacher & The Travelers

The calling in Chris Hester’s life to share salvation with others began many years ago. At the age when most children were interested in riding bikes or playing little league baseball, he sang his first solo in church. This encouragement at the age of five led him down a path that was filled with hours, weeks, and years of singing engagements. These countless hours instilled a rich heritage of the love of southern gospel music while ministering to others. Chris comments, “I’ve been blessed with riches beyond measure in the legacy left behind from my dad and grandfather who have been in the ministry for years. Their spiritual guidance has driven me to where I am today. I believe there is no greater work than delivering God’s message to others.” He has been actively involved in the music ministry by traveling and working in the local church through singing, songwriting, producing, and arranging music.

This family, deeply rooted in more than three decades of singing Southern Gospel Music, has many accolades and awards to add to their long list of accomplishments. They have recorded more than twenty five albums. Multiple DVDs featuring live concerts can be found on their legacy list. Over the course of their tenure, they have humbly enjoyed the success of seven number one songs on the Singing News charts as well as over twenty Top 10 songs. With half a lifetime behind them, their best days are yet ahead. They leave their home in Nashville every weekend with the full assurance that they are operating in God's perfect plan for their lives. When you meet them, when you hear them raise the roof with their songs, you know immediately that you have stepped into a realm where God resides and life is celebrated at a premium. To experience this family is to enjoy a slice of musical life at its best.

"Preacher" Patrick Quick - Lead Vocalist & Acoustic Guitar. The Founder, Lead Singer, and Songwriter of the group, Preacher has over 45 years in the ministry. Ben Quick:Tenor/Lead - Harmonica & Bass. The son of Patrick and Tracy Quick, Ben has been singing and playing gospel for over 30 years in his dad's revivals and concerts across the country. "Big" Jim Loveday - Bass Vocalist. This Cherokee boy sang with Patrick 40 years ago. "The nicest guy you'll ever meet" Blake Lillard - Baritone/Lead & Acoustic / Lead Guitar. The youngest of the group, Blake brings his rich country vocals and some mean guitar licks that makes everything the Travelers do just that much better.

The Anchormen

Kevin Spencer

The Browders

Formed in 1979, the ANCHORMEN have become one of the premier quartets in Christian Music. With over three decades in ministry they continue a rich heritage of sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ delivered by very talented and spirit filled gentlemen. "We began singing in three or four states for the first five years of our ministry. In 1985, we were able to travel on a full-time scale. Even through personal changes and trials along the way God has kept his hand on the ministry of The Anchormen." Many great vocalists have taken the stage as members of this fine group including: Benny Blackburn, Steve Ladd, Tony Jarman, David Sutton, Biney English, Dale Forbes, David Hill, Jody Medford, Jeff Chapman, Aaron McCune, David Hester, and Paul Harkey. Each member brought a different dynamic to the group and helped to make this group what it is today.

Kevin Spencer is a southern gospel singer who started singing with his family “The Spencers” when he was 3 years old. After starting his own group in 1992, Kevin Spencer and Friends, he now is enjoyed by his fans as a soloist. He is admired by his fans wherever he goes with his desire to be a blessing, and minister, while delivering a song. His greatest moments are when something he has written or sung has truly touched someone’s life. He also owns and operate the Some Dawning Music Company Int’l., Inc. which is a company that includes recording, songwriting, promoting, and producing of great southern gospel music.Kevin Spencer has re corded several #1 and #2 songs! His hit songs and fan favorites include: The Blood Is Still There, If The Rapture Was Yesterday, So Much To Thank Him For, Flow Through Me Holy Spirit, and God Bless America Again.

In 1990, Tommy felt God calling him to tour with his family and since then The Browders’ career has steadily gained momentum. Their 2009 album, The Message, produced seven top ten singles. "Voted “Breakthrough Artist of the Year” at the Absolutely Gospel Music Awards in 2013, 2014 Dove Award Nominee for "Inspirational Song of the Year", and receiving “Music Video of the Year” at the 2016 AGM Awards, the Browders have headlined their own shows and have also opened for The Band Perry, MercyMe, Michael English and others. They are quick to speak excitedly about the number of souls they’ve seen saved at the concerts and conferences where they share the gospel. “It’s not about our abilities. It’s about God’s capability,” says Matthew. “He can do anything. We just try to be good stewards of the gifts that God has given to us.”

The Diplomats

Southern Sonlight

The Russells

The Diplomats Quartet was founded in 1968 by current owner Jimmy Pearson. He and his wife Rita have been spreading the gospel of Jesus Christ through song around the country ever since. They are proud to be one of the few groups that still travel with a full band. The Diplomats Quartet is a ministry and they all enjoy spreading the gospel through song and uplifting our fellow Christians! In the 10 years since the revival of The Diplomats Quartet, God has really opened the door for them to minister the Gospel not only in church events but many other types of concerts. Each member of the group brings a special talent to the group to create the powerfull sound of The Diplomats. www.diplomatsqt.com

The Gospel Station’s own Southern SONlight is a Southern Gospel group with many original songs, plus the Gospel favorites you all know and love. They have sung all across Oklahoma and surrounding states for many years at churches of all denominations, and at numerous community events. The members are from The Gospel Station and Union Valley Baptist Church. Randall Christy, David and Sharla Frederick, and Randi Hall. Southern SONlight will go to any church of any size on a love offering basis. All money given to the group goes directly to the ministry of The Gospel Station Network. Their main goal is to lift up the name of Jesus Christ through song and to minister to those who need to know Jesus Christ as their personal Lord and Savior. For booking information, call Sharla Frederick at 1-800-557-8815.

The Russels are: Mike Russell, his daughter Kassie, and her husband Daniel Ingle. Their album "LISTEN, LORD" includes tracks: "The Secret Place" "Listen Lord" "3 Wooden Crosses" "I Am Not Ashamed" "The Promise" "Oh What a Friend" and more... Off Stage, the group -along with Mike’s wife Jan- make up The World Mission Team, and spend about as much time on foreign soil as domestic. They enjoy their calling of bringing the lost to place their faith in Christ, and the Lord has reached and redeemed hundreds of thousands through their ministry. The World Mission Team is an outreach of The Gospel Station Network, and they would love for you to go with them on one of their many short term mission trips! If you would like more information, contact Mike or Jan at: theworldmissionteam@gmail.com.

The Gastineaus

The McNeills

Peyton Sisters

From the southern Oklahoma town of Ada comes an exciting family band, The Gastineaus. With over a decade of ministry and main stage performances, they continue to stay true to their calling. Their refreshing sound produced by tight family harmony, original songwriting, and live instrumentation is easy-listening and sets this family apart in today’s genre of southern gospel music. They’ve accumulated several GMAA awards and nominations. The Gastineaus blend diverse musical influences to create a progressive southern, contemporary country sound with bluesy undertones. Their dedication to the ministry, attention to professionalism and individual musical excellence has solidified The Gastineaus as one of Oklahoma's most compelling bands in Christian music today. Group members are; Gaye Gastineau, Kami Gastineau-Nance, Maci Gastineau, Greg Nance, Trevor Sutton, & James Gastineau.

One of the most watched Christian Artist Groups of 2016 and GMAA 2017 Group of the Year! The McNeills are relatively new to the Christian music scene, having been in the ministry for only 2 1/2 years. In that short time, they have had the opportunity to do some amazing things - bridging the generation gaps with their unique style, variety of music, and their lineup. From praise and worship, to bluegrass, to a capella, to country gospel, to great hymns of old. The McNeills truly have something that everyone can enjoy. It’s often said that there’s nothing sweeter than family harmony. With a family of 12, ranging from 49 to 4 years of age, The McNeills are living up to that belief. Dad, Mom, the oldest son and oldest daughter make up the main vocal group, but at different points ALL of the McNeills join in for a concert you won’t forget.

The Peyton Sisters are a family duo consisting of two sisters, Rachael who is 13 and Riley who is 15. The girls live in southern Illinois. They started singing at the age of 5 and 6 in churches and nursing homes and have branched out to different states and civic centers. They began singing harmony at ages 6 and 7. The girls parents knew instantly that it was a gift from the Lord as they can’t sing a note, and yet Rachael and Riley are able to hear and sing harmony fluently. They are able to do up to hour long concerts. Riley and Rachael say one of their favorite things they love about singing, is when they look out and see people raising their hands, worshiping God. The girls are currently taking vocal lessons from Joyce Martin Sanders from the gospel trio “The Martins” who sing reguarly with Mark Lowery and the Gaithers.

Mark Huitt

The Chandlers

The Bowling Family

Mark Huitt has been performing gospel music for over 30 years in churches and community events in Texas and Oklahoma. He appeared on The Grapevine Opry in Grapevine, Texas at the age of 17. Mark is the host of "The Saturday Morning Gospel Music Show" (along with his good friend, Phil Parks), on The Gospel Station Network's 88.3 & 105.1FM in South Central Oklahoma - and is co-host with Tisha Todd on “The Gospel Station Spotlight Show” which airs on the first Monday of each month on the entire Gospel Station Network. Mark’s newest CD project is called ”Come To The Cross”. Mark's ministry is of reconciliation and new beginnings. "God is a God of second and third chances, and no matter where you have been or what you have done, God is ready to forgive you and to save you-- and to work a healing in your life. You just need to ask Him to."

The Chandlers travel in a ministry of singing and preaching conducting concerts, revivals, camp meetings and conferences. Their travels have taken them all over the United States, Canada, Serbia, and the Philippines. The group consists of: Tim, Lana, and their two daughters, Tiffany, and Lyndsey. They have been blessed to share the stage with such groups as: Brian Free and Assurance, Karen Peck and New River, Lulu Roman, Jason Crabb, Michael English, The McKameys, The Freemans, Southern Plainsmen, and others. They have also been privileged to sing on the main stage at the National Quartet Convention, and Dollywood Theme Park. Their ministry, based in Greenfield, TN, is being a blessing to thousands in as many as 175 dates a year.

The Bowling Family combines talent, sincerity and experience to create a memorable concert experience. Their goal for the evening is to usher in the presence of God and celebrate the Christian message. The group consists of Mike Bowling and his wife, Kelly, their daughter Hope and longtime friend Troy Peach. They bring you their stories and songs in a way that is reminiscent of days gone by. To watch them perform reminds us of a time when "all night singings" were the norm, and folks lined up early to visit with the singers and musicians. History will note that they have been true to the excellence of their ability without diminishing or distancing the listener. The Bowling Family is excited to be in ministry together. They know that all roads have led to this time and this place! The world is in need of the Gospel.

Adam Crabb

The McKameys

Aaron Wilburn

Adam's musicianship along with his powerful vocal delivery is true to the style that the Crabb Family fan has come to expect and enjoy. As you would expect, he is committed to ministry and considers this "life" a calling instead of a career. But one notices quickly that Adam is a perfectionist when it comes to his music. He possesses immense talent and passion that is uncommon, impossible to teach, and simply given to a few as a special gift straight from Heaven! To watch him play the harmonica is a pure delight. His reputation as a studio musician is impressive, but his "home" is truly the "live" performance. He electrifies a large auditorium with that unbelievably small harmonica. Excellence, passion, talent, it seems that Adam has much to offer the music lover, especially the music lover that hears with his ears and his heart.

Organized as a trio of sisters in 1954, the group “The McKameys” is in its sixth decade of spreading God’s message of love and hope through their music. There have been a few changes throughout the years with one sister continuing with her family. Today, the group consists of Peg McKamey Bean and her husband, Ruben; their daughter Connie Fortner and husband Roger Fortner who are joined by her son, Elijah; and Sheryl Farris, who is also Peg and Ruben’s daughter. The wonderful harmonies of this family along with great songs gives them a unique opportunity to share God’s love as well as encourage the saints. The McKameys play about 145 days a year, traveling throughout North America. To date, they have had 30 number one songs. This family group is devoted to their Lord, first of all, to their church, and to their call to spread God’s Word to others through their music.

Aaron Wilburn brings the house down with laughter... and he does it without four-letter words or making his audience feel uncomfortable. He has endeared himself to thousands of laughter-loving fans with his own down-home brand of humor, as he talks about his southern roots, his family, children and his faith. It's common to see a grandfather laughing along with his teen-agers and children. As Aaron says, "There is no generation gap with laughter". Little would one expect that the same guy that brings people to tears with laughter also has written songs that have touched the lives of so many. His gift of songwriting has brought with it Dove Awards as well as Grammy nominations. Whether he is on stage in an arena surrounded by 15,000 or in a banquet setting for a corporation or church, Aaron Wilburn is at home. If you tell him, "I loved your act", he'll probably tell you, "That's no act, that's who I am".

Lineage of David

Tisha Todd

Donna Kilmurray

God doesn’t always reveal every element of His plan before He requires us to move. In these times, we must walk by faith, be led by the Holy Spirit, and know that He is in control and will make a way. That is the story of the music ministry of Lineage Of David. God has anointed these individuals to share His Gospel in song and to encourage believers to trust and not doubt in God’s faithfulness. Lineage of David yearns to see souls saved, Christians encouraged, and the Jesus Christ exalted as King of Kings, and Lord of Lords! Their songs, ranging from happy, engaging melodies of praise to moving, heart-felt ballads of testimony and en couragement, are sure to inspire their audience as they listen. The primary mission of Lineage of David is to be led and used by the Holy Spirit. By doing so it is our prayer to see souls saved, Christians encouraged, and Jesus Christ exalted as King of Kings, and Lord of Lords!

Tisha Todd & The Circle of Friends, a ministry of Tisha Todd Ministries, Inc., was raised up about two and a half years ago when Tisha, along with several individual singers and professional groups came together to do a benefit for a young lady facing possible heart and lung transplant. From that first benefit, many others have followed. TT & the Circle of Friends mission statement is to "Reach out to Lift Up" and that's the heart and soul (song) of every individual and singer involved. We are committed to lift up Jesus through word and song. It's gospel music set in a Gaither Style homecoming setting, bringing listeners good southern gospel music, old and new. The stage is set with 30-35 featured professional artists and groups from different places lifting their voices. Wherever God opens the door, the call remains the same, ""To Reach out and Lift Up!"

Blessed with a powerful Soprano voice, Donna is fulfilling the calling her Lord and Savior put on her heart. Donna enjoys singing most genres of music that honor our Lord - from choir pieces, contemporary praise and worship, to southern and country gospel. She is starting a solo ministry in 2018 after spending the last couple of years with a mixed trio. Donna was honored in 2017 by being selected as 10 finalist in the Singing News Ultimate Talent Search, where she competed in Nashville. Donna is also a full-time Registered Nurse, but hopes to be able to give more of her time to traveling and singing for the Lord.

The Nelons

Birth Right

Kelly Wright

Offering a captivating blend of gospel, a cappella, hymns, Americana, folk, and inspirational music, the Nelons are a world-class talented family. The ensemble is led by the legendary, multi-award winning vocalist, co-founding member Kelly Nelon Clark and her husband, the versatile singer, songwriter, musician, and producer, Jason Clark. Their daughters, Amber and Autumn, complete this supremely gifted musical troupe as they contribute their powerful vocals to this traveling family band’s harmonic sound. Their trend-setting innovation, technical skill, and undeniable gift of communication have delighted audiences all around the world. A concert with The Nelons leaves you encouraged by the message of hope shared from their hearts, warmed by the love of family you feel from the stage, and inspired by the beauty, purity, and majesty of each lyric they sing.

Birthright, based in Dallas, Texas, is the product of years of ministry blended into a new beginning for each of its members. Originally formed in the early 1990's, Birthright has ministered to people all across the southern states in everything from church homecomings to state-wide conventions. Members are Johnny Barber, Rita Barber, and in 2013, the trio added its newest member, John Graves; and a new chapter began in the ministry. Birthright's desire to reach the lost and encourage believers through the ministry of southern gospel music and their personal testimonies has given the group a renewed strength and inspiration. Each member shares a deep love of ministry through southern gospel music. With a rich diversity in backgrounds and sounds all their own, the trio keeps audiences sitting on the edge of their seats.

We want to thank the members of our various ministry boards in Operation Global Impact -- The Gospel Station Network: Ben and Peggy Bell Sharla and David Frederick Mike and Jessica Huddleston Sue Bryant Kim Morris Mary Fay Jackson Mike and Jan Russell Keith and Carol Butler Tom and Loretta Bush Ruth Lance Wester Jack Mayo Steve and Liz Vandegrift Carl and Louise Parks

THE CROSS REMAINS FOR NOW... BUT STILL IN DANGER. Americans United for Separation of Church and State demanded that ECU remove the cross from the top of the Boswell Chapel on ECU’s campus in Ada OK. Because of so much public outcr outcry, prayers, and action from our listeners and lawmakers, the cross remains on the chapel for now. The Bibles, cross, and altar have been put back into the chapel. The OK State Attorney General and the Liberty Council have agreed to fight for the cross, should this go to court. g The group demanded that ECU remove the cross or they would take legal action. Attorney General Michael Hunter says this could be a test case for the US Supreme Court. ECU President Peirson has been great through all of this. Please do not call ECU. If we lose, crosses on all state owned and federal owned property would likely be forcibly removed. 42

We took a stand! THANK YOU for standing with us. All over the USA, the cross is under attack. Atheists and people who hate Jesus are trying to remove the cross from public view. WE STAND & FIGHT FOR THE CROSS !!! We have a petition we need you to sign at StandForTheCross.com. Thank you for your prayers and financial support as we try to place white crosses all over the USA. By displaying a white cross at your home or business, you are being a witness to those around you that you are not ashamed of Jesus Christ our Lord & Savior. So far we have sent out over 11,000 white crosses for public display. Also, you can get a frameable copy of the 10 commandments FREE at 1.800.557.8815 PLEASE follow Stand For The Cross on Facebook to keep up the fight!!!

Kelly Wright

a t Union Valley Church

Kelly Wright, weekend anchor at FOX NEWS is also an evangelical preacher and gospel singer. We play his music on The Gospel Station Network.

At Union Valley, we know how to praise the Lord and believe in ALL the Bible - from Genesis to Revelation. We want to see souls saved and lives changed.

Neema Charities serves children and widows in Kisumu, Kenya by working to meet their core needs of food, clean water, shelter, medical care, protection, education and love. Nearly 70 orphans are provided a home and education through the Neema Children's Home. Dozens more are educated and fed each day through Neema's school and feeding programs. Surrounding widows are provided food, medical assistance, clothes and clean water. www...............com Neema Children’s Home Pastor John & His Family


THE LORD CONTINUES THE INCREASE! God continues to give the increase around the world. It seems that God is using the World Mission Team even more in the country of Kenya. Each year the team travels to the western side of the country to the city of Kisumu, on lake Victoria. In 2017 more than 30,000 prayed to receive Christ during an outreach into over 100 schools and a three day open air crusade. The follow up report shared about a school girl who was so distraught she planned to throw herself onto the highway in front of an oncoming truck to take her own life. One of the teams showed up in her school just in time. The young lady gave her heart to Jesus and confessed what she had been planning. Her abusive father is now in jail, and she is safe. The following is a personal testimony from a man that attended the open air crusade: “I came to the crusade because I saw on the poster and heard on radio announcements that one of the speakers was a wrestling champion." said Oscar of Nyamasaria. He felt that he was too bad and that God exceedingly hated him because of numerous criminal activities he had previously engaged in. He confesses that he had stabbed 3 people to death. This happened on various occasions at disco joints while quarreling over women. He had been jailed for 26 years, but made a risky narrow escape from the jail after serving 10 years. This made him change his location from Mombasa (which is farthest east) to Kisumu, on the west - where no one would recognize him. He wanted to see this wrestler and then move away. That evening Daniel (the wrestler) was preaching. He says, "I had been skeptical about this salvation and healing my entire life!" As Daniel continued to preach, he felt something like an electrical charge going through his body. As he prayed to receive Christ, he felt like he was washed in the presence of the Lord, and felt like crying and laughing at the same time! He felt as if a sack full of sand had been lifted off his shoulders. He felt very light, and for the first time he slept like a baby. Villages where the team has been working continue to come to our Kenya leader asking for someone to come and start churches where there are no evangelical churches of any kind. The seventh church building has just been completed, and nine more churches are meeting in school buildings or under trees. God also continues to provide food daily for 120 orphans and school children at the Neema Children's home and school as well as meet other personal needs. What a blessing it is to be a small part of what God is doing around the world. We give Him all the Glory! He alone is worthy of our praise.
