The 2014 MWQA Convention is right around the corner! Do you have your tickets yet?
There are only 17 more days left till we celebrate our Lord Jesus in song and enjoy each other’s fellowship — aren’t you excited?! The schedule has been put in place (yes, we will be posting it soon!), the convention program is in the works, and final preparations for the weekend are in full swing.
There will be new faces at the convention this year (keep reading!), as well as some absent groups. The Marshalls and The Williamsons are unable to attend this year, so we will miss their powerful harmonies. Also absent from the stage will be a faithful group, The Faithfulmen Quartet from Minnesota. They have been singing together for over 17 years and the time has come to pursue other avenues of ministry. We are sad to them go and their presence, music, and friendship will leave a void at the convention. But we pray the Lord will bless them for their ministry and future endeavors!
The Victorymen welcomes Bruce Layman
The Victorymen from Oronogo, MO would like to announce the addition of their new lead singer, Bruce Layman. According to their press release: “Bruce is the newest member of the group, joining in May 2014.
He is no stranger to Gospel music and his strong powerful voice and testimony for the Lord will fit right in. He comes to us from the group Faithful Heart. We welcome and feel fortunate to have him as part of the group. Bruce resides in Joplin, Mo and attends church in Joplin when not out on the road.”
Christina Davis joins the Liberty Belles
Also, the Liberty Belles from Columbia, MO are excited to announce they have added a member to their group.
They have been searching for a third vocalist to complete their trio for over a year, and were happy to announce Christina Davis has joined the group. Christina also hails from Missouri and adds her voice to the group’s pleasing blend.
Continuing the convention news…
As you probably heard, Jeff Stice will be attending this year’s convention. How fun is that? He will be sharing his piano skills each evening. Some other new groups that you will be introduced to included 4 One Quartet from Michigan, Southern Faith from Arkansas, and Reconciled Quartet from Red Oak, Iowa.
We are thrilled to welcome each new group and cannot wait to see how the Lord will use them! There was word passing around that the talented Keepers of the Faith would be performing the Midwest Quartet Convention this year, but that information is false. A complete schedule will be posted soon of all the groups that will — Lord-willing — be ministering.
In closing, we look forward to seeing YOU this year! If you have any questions or comments about the convention, please feel free to get in touch with us. God bless you!
