We are so excited…Lawson’s music video has finally been released! The featured song, “The End Down Here,” gives a glimpse of Heaven and the hope Christians have when this life on earth is over; it is one of the original titles on his Cd entitled, “Freedom Sure Ain’t Free.”  
We hope you’ll take time to listen and enjoy!
The video was filmed in Colorado by Provident Media Group

Erin’s Graduation


IMG_8170
On May 5th, Erin graduated from Crown College of the Bible with honors, magna cum laude. She earned a bachelors degree in music ministry and received the Brad Askew Award for Music Ministry, along with her Crown College music teacher certification. We are so very proud of her dedication and hard work! She paid her own way through school by teaching piano lessons, so she spent many long days and excessive hours between her classes, lessons, and homework! We are also extremely grateful for the teachers who impacted her life and set such a wonderful Christian example! The classes at Crown were challenging and spiritually inspiring! Many thanks to Crown College faculty and Pastor Sexton for maintaining such high standards and exemplary goals for the students! (http://thecrowncollege.com/)
