I Had a chance to talk with Kelly Burton and asked her for an update on the Branson Gospel Music Convention http://www.bransongmc.com/ here is what she had to say.
With Branson Gospel Music Convention now less than two months away, excitement is building amongst artists and fans of the music. The staff is working on partnerships with local Branson businesses and SG industry and ministry leaders to ensure the event is one everyone will be talking about and one where the Lord’s name is lifted high. Look for announcements about ticket giveaways from several Branson area favorites coming soon. Meanwhile, the full schedule of concert line-ups is expected to be announced by the end of May. Everyone is encouraged to check it out and see when your favorites will be on stage so that you can be sure to be there. Another thing we’d like you to notice: there is only one stage at Branson GMC. You will see ‘headline’ names next to new discoveries… all ministering together to give you a diverse, personal, and ultimately wonderful worship & song experience.
Personally speaking We covet prayers for the convention. We truly, sincerely, more than anything want this event to touch and change lives for Christ. As we stick to this mission and as the time draws nearer, we are being challenged on every side: health, family, finances, diversity, logistics. And as this occurs, we continue to be lifted up by our partners and participants. Just this week we got an email from one of our artists, sending us the verse from her daily calendar: Philippians 4:13 , I can do everything through him who gives me strength! We also receive encouragement and prayer requests from our artists and our ticketholders on a regular basis… there is no family like the family of God! We believe that God is building a fellowship of believers through the work of this convention… and it hasn’t even happened yet! So, we expect that mighty victories are about to be won in His name.
