The Welch College Choir will travel in three states March 13-19 during their annual Spring Choir Tour, according to David Williford, Vice President for Institutional Advancement. The 40-member choir, directed by Dr. James Stevens, chairman of the Welch Music Department, will minister in seven churches and two Christian schools in seven days.

The tour program, O Praise the Name!, will consist of sacred choral selections and gospel songs designed to encourage and evangelize. Some of the selections include: Blessings, How Great Thou Art, Is He Worthy?, Come Thou Fount, and O Praise the Name.

“We really want to encourage local churches and youth groups to mark their calendars and make every effort to attend a service in their area,” Williford said. “We also want to ask people to pray for the health and safety of the choir as they travel and present God’s Word, and to pray that God would bless in every service.”
