Faith Baptist Church announces that the Singing Men of Texas, will be in concert on Thursday, October 19 at 7 pm. The church is located at 3001 Southwest Parkway, (corner of Rhea Road and Southwest Parkway) in Wichita Falls. TX.
Singing Men of Texas consists of men who serve in various music-related positions in the Texas Baptist churches and institutions. The group is divided into 6 regional groups, which present concerts of classic and contemporary Gospel music throughout the state each month. Doug Burton, Minister of Music is excited about hosting the group at Faith Baptist Church. It is a tremendous thrill to be the host of this special group of men. The North Central Chapter is comprised of over 150 men and is one of the finest men's choruses in the country. But it is primarily a ministry group. The Singing Men have made mission trips to England, Germany, Switzerland, Romania, Spain, China, Brazil, Austria and the Czech Republic. In 2010, 2012, 2015 and 2017, the group had extremely productive evangelistic concerts in Ukraine with evangelist Michael Gott.
Don Blackley, director of the choir, quotes from Psalm 9, as he describes the ministry of this group:
"I'm thanking You, God, from a full heart,
I'm writing the book on Your wonders.
I'm whistling, laughing, and jumping for joy:
I'm singing Your song, High God."
He continues, "This passage typifies the spirit of these men who can be found serving in churches every Sunday. They love banding together eight times a year to sing concerts throughout the North Texas region."
Everyone is invited to be a part of this free concert at Faith Baptist Church. A missions offering will be taken and recordings of the Singing Men will be available for purchase.
