10 things you need to know about the 2014 MWQA Convention

10 days left till the 2014 MWQA Convention begins!  Here are some things to keep in mind as you prepare for the weekend...

1. Over 20 groups from across the Midwest are gathering in Des Moines, IA.  Tour buses, RVs, passenger vans, and shuttle buses will be pulling in with licenses plates from Minnesota, Iowa, North and South Dakota, Illinois, Missouri, Michigan, Kansas, Kentucky, and Arkansas.  Each group brings their own unique sound, personality, and ministry, creating an exciting atmosphere to the weekend.

2. Holiday Inn – Airport is, like its name implies, near the Des Moines International Airport.  Are you needing directions?  Click this link to see exactly where the hotel is located and plan your travels accordingly.

3. You don’t have to leave the hotel to get a bite to eat — supper is going to be delicious!  Holiday Inn will be catering the evening meals.  Here’s the deal for supper: $15 dollars for a scrumptious dinner of baked ham/roast beef, cheesy potatoes au gratin, buttered corn, and coleslaw on Friday, and fried chicken/meat loaf, mashed potatoes with chicken gravy, tossed salad, and green beans on Saturday.  Both meals will include cookies, iced tea, and coffee.  The hotel also has a restaurant on site, so if you want to grab some food at any other time, you can…without driving off site.

4. There is a special prayer breakfast at 9 AM on Saturday morning.  A breakfast will be available for an additional cost and Jeff Stice will lead devotions.  Please make plans to join us for this special opportunity for Christian fellowship!

5. Don’t forget to bring your tickets! If you have ordered tickets online, make sure you print and bring along the tickets you received through your email.  You will receive a wristband for the weekend according to the tickets you purchased.  (No more fishing for your tickets to show to the ushers at the door!)

6. The schedule is available on the website.  But there will be a special program available at the convention, complete with a schedule, an artist listing, and photo gallery.  (Be sure to pick one up as a handy guide and souvenir!)

7. If you ever need a rest, you can just retire to your room at the Holiday Inn for a quick break.  There are other hotels in the area, but we specifically selected Holiday Inn – Airport for your convenience and comfort.  There are hotel packages still available and we would encourage you to take advantage of the great arrangement.

8. Invite a friend to come along! Have you been blessed by a MWQA convention in the past?  Share the experience with someone you know!  Events are always much more fun when shared with a friend or two.  Bring a neighbor, a best pal, or your grandkids and arrange a memorable, refreshing weekend.

9. If you like taking pictures, feel free to bring your camera!  (If you take pictures or video during the convention, please share them with us through email or our Facebook — we’d love to see them!)   Take some cash along for the convention program/schedule ($1.00 each) and CDs from your favorite groups.  If you get cold, pack a sweater; if you get hot, bring a paper fan.  And toting along a smile doesn’t hurt either! :)

10. You just never what’s going to happen!  From moments of hilarious spontaneity to tearful worship, each convention leaves both attendees and artists with special memories.  When you get people together who love Jesus and are just down-right crazy, anything is bound to happen — on stage and off!  Come prepared for the unexpected.

Lots of news!

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.

The Faithfulmen Quartet

The Faithfulmen Quartet

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

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.

Bruce Layman of The Victorymen

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.

Reconciled Quartet

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!
