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. The momentum has not stopped as this group continues to help define the Southern Gospel genre for a whole new generation of music lovers, perhaps more so than any other group. 

The Kingsmen garnered multiple dove awards and numerous Singing News Fan awards including favorite bass vocalist, tenor, baritone, lead, instrumentalist, video, the 1992 favorite song "Wish You Were Here" as well as favorite album by the same name, male quartet of the year, and group of the year. The Kingsmen band was voted favorite band a record 17 times making this quartet one of the most awarded groups in Southern Gospel Music. 

"The key is to never lose sight of what we are working towards" says Ray Reese, Kingsmen manager and bass singer. "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. Every night we work to bring His message to our audience. Our goal is to see people saved through Jesus Christ whether we're singing indoors, outdoors, in an auditorium, church or studio recordings ". Today the Kingsmen consist of 2008 hall of fame inductee, Ray Dean Reese (bass), Chris Jenkins (tenor), Chris Bryant (lead), and Alan Kendall (baritone).

What do you get when you bring together two of Gospel music’s most exciting, beloved and young artists? You get The Resurrection of Faith Tour.

Joseph Habedank and The Erwins are uniting to present The Resurrection of Faith Tour, bringing together their music ministries for a special evening.

Daywind recording artist Joseph Habedank is Dove Award winning, GRAMMY® nominated singer/songwriter and Singing News Magazine's 2017 and 2018 Soloist of the Year. For 10 years, he served first as baritone, then as the lead singer for one of Southern Gospel's favorite family groups, the Perrys, and shared his songs in some of America's greatest churches and venues, including the Brooklyn Tabernacle, Charles Stanley’s First Baptist Atlanta, The Grand Ole Opry, and the historic Ryman Auditorium. He was awarded Singing News Magazine’s New Soloist of the Year in 2014. Additionally, he was awarded Young Artist of the Year in 2009 by the fans of Gospel Music and Songwriter of the Year at the Absolutely Gospel Music Awards in 2011. He has helped write two nationally charted #1 songs and in 2010, "If You Knew Him" (written with Rodney Griffin) was nominated for Southern Gospel Song of the Year at the GMA Dove Awards and won the Singing News Fan Award for Song of the Year. Visit his website at www.josephhadedank.com.

The Erwins are a true gospel music success story. The family participated in the NQC Talent Shows in 2001, 2005, then sang in Regional Showcases in 2010 and won ‘Best of the Week’ in 2011. They’ve been awarded Favorite New Mixed Group at the Singing News Fan Awards and appeared on the GMA Dove Awards Telecast. They’ve been featured on Daystar TV’s Gospel Music Showcase, The Music City Show, and performed the National Anthem by request of the Tennessee Titans at Nissan Stadium. The family has been featured by People Magazine, Singing News, Simple Grace, and more. During their earlier years, the family would sing for anyone who would listen, quite literally anywhere. One evening at Freedom Hall, the young family found themselves in an elevator with Vestal Goodman. Of course, they sang for her. In typical Vestal fashion, after they sang she laid hands on them and prayed over them for God to bless and use them in a mighty way. It’s safe to say that God heard that prayer.

About EUMC's Concert Outreach Ministry Fund

We are gratefully accepting donations to the Concert Outreach Ministry Fund to enable EUMC to continue to offer concerts by nationally known artists on a regular basis.  The purpose of this ministry is multifold. It will serve as an outreach for the community, provide people who aren’t able to travel distances the opportunity to experience high caliber concerts locally, and most importantly help establish or strengthen their relationship with Christ.  

The costs of hosting the concerts can be expensive as these artists have high travel expenses and for many this is their only source of income for their families.   The Fund allows us to help outset the fees involved with hosting the concerts.  Many artists require a minimum honorarium amount, but our goal is to bring the concerts to you at the lowest cost possible.  We will strive to fund on a love offering basis, but there will be times we will have to ticket the events or ask for a suggested donation amount.

Donations made to the Concert Outreach Ministry Fund are eligible for receipts for charitable giving.
