Production of the CD was made possible with funds donated by the Welch College Alumni Association. Association president Mike Edwards said, “Once again, the Welch College alumni have stepped up. Their generous giving and support of Welch College students made this project possible. This is more than just a choir CD; it is a ministry tool. I want to thank the Alumni Association for supporting this project.”
Music Department chairman Dr. James M. Stevens said, “With some of the most talented students we’ve ever had, hard work over a long period of time, and some great songs, I hope and believe that this will be a CD that will touch the hearts of people around the world with music that Free Will Baptists can be proud of.“
