The Welch College Choir will conduct a locally-focused spring tour visiting churches in a 150-mile radius of the campus March 11-17 according to David Williford, Vice President for Institutional Advancement. The 32-member choir, directed by Dr. James Stevens, chairman of the Welch Music Department, will minister in seven churches and one Christian school. This year the choir will also host a community concert on Saturday, March 14, to benefit Veranda Ministries, a faith-based respite care program in Gallatin, TN, assisting senior adults with Alzheimer’s or dementia.

The tour program, With a Voice of Singing!, will consist of sacred choral selections and gospel songs designed to evangelize and encourage. Some of the selections include: And Can It Be?, Ezekiel Saw de Wheel, My Hope Is Built, and Thou, O Lord.

“We 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 ask that people 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.”
