The Kingston Trio

Showtime: 8:00pm | Doors Open: 7:00pm Prices: Tickets Only - $19.95 -$24.95 -$29.95 -$39.95 -$49.95 | Dinner and Theater -$37.95 -$42.95 -$47.95 -$57.95 -$67.95 (plus tax & fees) This Concert will be held at the Blue Gate Performing Arts Center Buy My Tickets Now! THE KINGSTON TRIO began with Nick Reynolds, Bob Shane and Dave Guard in 1955... Home base: San Francisco. The three founded what turned out to be the most influential music band to emerge from the 1950's, only to be outdone by The Beatles. With talent and tenacity, they rose to become the undisputed kings of an acoustic musical genre that exploded onto the American scene, and still exists today! They were never actually folksingers but more a musical and vocal group that performed a variety of styles. Audiences worldwide agreed. Recently, the Kingston Trio received the "Grand Grammy" of all Grammys: The Lifetime Achievement Award. Reserved for those select few who have attained spectacular success in the music business over an extended career, this honor places the Trio among a heady pantheon of names like Frank Sinatra, Charlie Parker and The Beatles. With their signature-striped shirts, banjos, bongos, guitars and charismatic personalities, they became the most outstanding singing and recording act of their time. Fans of legendary folk icons The Kingston Trio now have an opportunity to re-discover their timeless music in a national tour which marks the group's more than 60 years of keeping the music playing -- performing many of their best-loved songs. All three current members, Mike Marvin, Tim Gorelangton and Don Marovich have intrinsic links to and experience with the original group: Mike is the "adopted son" of founding member Nick Reynolds, who was also his musical mentor; Tim, a close friend since boyhood, is one of the few musicians outside the Trio who has recorded with Nick Reynolds; and Don Marovich who has performed with the Trio and plays the guitar, banjo and mandolin. Many of their personal memories recall the iconic trio's performances and journey as folk music made its extraordinary ascent to the pinnacle of popular culture - and the top of the music charts. www.officialkingstontrio.org

The Collingsworth Family

Excitement, spiritual anointing, family-emphasis, and musical excellence are what you can expect to find when you step across the threshold of the auditorium for an Evening of Family Worship and Praise with The Collingsworth Family. Since their first engagement together as musicians for a church camp in Petersburg, Michigan in August, 1986 until now, the ministry God has given Phil & Kim has expanded and flourished until it is a full-time livelihood that involves their entire family. Their boundaries of influence have expanded until they have sung and played all over the United States (as well as internationally) into their 25th year of ministry. Their constant, persistent attention to cutting-edge arranging, musical excellence, and a proper balance of spiritual emphasis are the keys to success God has helped them tap. Phil & Kim's actual base of ministry began during their college days. Phil is a 1986 graduate of God's Bible School & College, Cincinnati, OH. This is the famous, 100+ year old college that is well-known within Christian education ranks for having been the American college where Oswald Chambers ("My Utmost For His Highest") taught. Phil also completed professional trumpet studies at College Conservatory of Music, University of Cincinnati and earned a Bachelor of Sacred Music degree with a double major in trumpet performance and music education. Kim attended Union Bible College, Westfield, IN where she was very instrumental in arranging most of the music that was performed by the college's traveling music groups. Since that time, many ministry opportunities have come across their pathway. They have always maintained a public performance ministry, which for the first fourteen years included doing music presentations for church camps and extended-length revival campaigns. They have also held the positions of Ministers of Music, Hobe Sound Bible Church, Hobe Sound, FL; Director, Music Division, Union Bible College, Westfield, IN; and Phil was Dean of Enrollment Management at his Alma Mater, God's Bible School & College, Cincinnati, OH. In January, 2000, Phil & Kim transitioned to a new, all-concert ministry. They began recording professionally and currently exclusively utilize one of Nashville's most award winning producers, Wayne Haun. This new emphasis began to expand their boundaries rapidly. Their home has seen the addition of four children across the years and the children are now very actively involved in the ministry. Their two oldest daughters are quite proficient on the violin and play at each of their concerts. Their entire family sings together in an ensemble as well as Brooklyn, their 22 yr old daughter, joining them in trio vocals for most of the program. Kim is well-known for her phenomenal mastery of the piano and the extraordinary talent God has given her is a part of each concert, as well as trumpet solos from Phil. Their newest full-scale studio project, Part of the Family, released September 2011, includes their current national radio single, Tell The Mountain written by Lee Black, Sue Smith & Kenna West and promoted to radio by Rhonda Thompson Promotions. They previously released a "first" in the Christian Music Industry, filming two full length music videos at the famed Music Hall in Cincinnati, OH, the home of the world-class Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra. The two filmings were the first Christian concerts ever to be filmed at a major symphony venue. They have also released two videos filmed in High Definition by Gaither Television Productions with the Flint Symphony Orchestra, Flint, MI. On January 1, 2004, they signed an exclusive booking agreement with The Dominion Agency of Fayetteville, NC, which now represents them in all personal appearances. On March 1, 2011, they move into a new multi year, exclusive recording agreement with StowTown Records, Nashville, TN, one of Gospel Music's newest and most exciting record companies, owned by Ernie Haase and Wayne Haun. Collingsworth Family recorded products are marketed nationally to the CBA Market thru Provident Distribution and to secular markets by Sony Music. Their ministry has been featureded on the nation's largest gospel music syndicated radio program, The Gospel Greats with Paul Heil as well as on Daniel Britt & Friends on XM/SIRIUS Satellite Radio's Enlighten. Their music is regularly featured on Enlighten, GMT (Gospel Music Television), The DayStar Television Network, and has also been featured in one hour prime-time specials on the INSP Television Network. The Collingsworth Family, at the personal invitation of Bill & Gloria Gaither, appeared on the newest Homecoming Series taping filmed at the Grand Ole Opry in Nashville, TN. They have also been added as regulars on many of the Gaither Homecoming Concerts, making appearances with Gaithers in some of their largest venues in the US and Canada. Their personal appearance schedule shows the broad appeal their family emphasis has, performing in all types of venues across the US, the Cayman Islands, and recently in Sweden. The rapid expansion they have seen occur with the transition to an all-concert ministry is a direct result of the emphasis they have placed on the power of prayer. Each Tuesday evening, they hold a private prayer meeting in their home for the specific purpose of praying for the salvation of their children and the expansion of their ministry. Since the beginning of these weekly prayer meetings in 2000, the doors of opportunity for ministry have opened to them, crossing all evangelical denominational boundaries. Phil & Kim's entire purpose is to give the talent God has loaned them back to their Creator as a sacrifice of praise.

Josh Turner

Showtime: 8:00pm | Doors Open One Hour Before Show Prices: Tickets Only - $29.95 -$59.95 -$84.95 -$99.95 | Dinner and Theater -$47.95 -$77.95 -$102.95 -$117.95 (plus tax & fees) This Concert will be held at the Blue Gate Performing Arts Center Buy My Tickets Now! With his rich, deep voice and distinctive style, MCA Nashville recording artist Josh Turner is one of country music's most recognizable hit-makers. From his 2003 Platinum-selling debut Long Black Train to his 2017 Billboard No. 1 release, Deep South, Turner has scored multiple GRAMMY, CMA and ACM Awards nominations and received six Inspirational Country Music Awards. As one of the youngest members inducted into the Grand Ole Opry, Turner has sold more than 8 million units, topped more than 1.5 billion in global streaming and populated radio with such memorable hits as "Hometown Girl," "Would You Go With Me," "Your Man," "Time Is Love," "Why Don't We Just Dance" and "Long Black Train." With his newest project, I Serve A Savior debuted at No. 1 on Nielsen's Top Current Country Albums Chart and No. 2 on Billboard's Top Country Albums Chart and Billboard's Top Christian Albums Chart, Turner adds an exciting new dimension to his already acclaimed career. The "musically brilliant" (Worship Magazine) album remained Top 10 on Billboard's Top Country Albums Chart for 17 consecutive weeks and it currently sits Top 10 on the Top Current Country Albums chart and Top 5 on the Top Current Contemporary Christian Albums chart and, as it has for 38 of the past 41 weeks since its October release. I Serve A Savior is a thoughtful gospel collection that finds Turner's rich, distinctive baritone paired with timeless classics including "Amazing Grace," "How Great Thou Art" and "Great Is Your Faithfulness," as well as introducing originals including the title track, "I Serve A Savior," and "The River (of Happiness)," written by his wife, Jennifer, and their eldest son, Hampton. In addition to the 12-track studio project, Turner has released a complementing 90-minute live performance DVD featuring a special interview of Turner with gospel legend Bill Gaither, a performance with Turner alongside his wife Jennifer and their four sons, and more. The DVD has been edited to air as a one-hour television special hosted by Bill Gaither, which will air on numerous networks across the U.S. and Canada. Turner is a disciple of traditional country music, a mentor to up-and-coming artists, and one of the youngest members of the Grand Ole Opry. Turner has been an Opry member for over 10 years and he recently reveled in his 150th performance on the famed Opry circle. Turner checked off another bucket list item when he added author to his list of accomplishments. His first book, Man Stuff: Thoughts on Faith, Family and Fatherhood was released in 2014. As highlighted in the book, the Hannah, S.C. native has been songwriting and performing since he was a young child, and in support of music education, created The Josh Turner Scholarship Fund to assist students interested in pursuing a future in arts and music. As a high school student, Turner had very little access to music education, therefore realizes first-hand the importance of arts education in schools.

Josiah for President

When former Congressman Mark Stedman throws in the towel on his presidential campaign, his only choice is to return to his home state and decide how to spend the rest of his life ... until he meets Josiah Stoltzfus, an Amish farmer from Pennsylvania. Stedman learns more from Josiah in a few hours than in his many years in office. He comes to the conclusion that someone like Josiah should be running the country. Not a career politician, but someone with a little old-fashioned common sense, someone who's not afraid of rolling up his sleeves and getting his hands dirty. Someone like Josiah Stoltzfus. Using his old campaign headquarters for a base, Mark Stedman determines to introduce a new candidate to America. Without Josiah's consent or knowledge, he becomes a write-in candidate for the Presidency. Mark pledges to do everything in his power to make sure Josiah gets elected. But can a plain man of faith turn the tide of politics and become the leader of America, and what will he have to risk to do it?

Singing Contractors

As young boys, Christopher and Taylor Malpass soaked up the music of their granddad's phonograph records. Christopher earned his first talent show trophy at age 7, and Taylor was playing mandolin by the time he was 10. Today, they promote the work and music of classic country artists they treasure while creating new music and making their own mark in the lineage of a rich American cultural heritage. With sincerity, honesty and an utter ease on stage that belies their years, their smooth vocal blend and skillful musicianship layer infectiously into the deep respect they pay to legends who have paved the way. Add the funny, off-the-cuff quips between the two 20-something siblings, and the engaging concert becomes a magnetic time-traveling journey to when a calmer rhythm reigned supreme. The Malpass Brothers toured with the late Don Helms, former steel guitarist for Hank Williams, have opened for music legend Merle Haggard on multiple tours and appeared on stages from the Shetland Islands to Ryman Auditorium to Merlefest. Gifted musicians and songwriters, the brothers have shared billing with artists including Ray Price, Willie Nelson, Doyle Lawson, Rhonda Vincent, Marty Stuart, Doc Watson and more. The title cut video from their "Memory That Bad" album hit CMT Pure Country's Top Ten. Their most recent self-titled recording, produced by bluegrass legend Doyle Lawson, was released by Crossroads' Organic Records in 2015. If you like cornbread & hush puppies, you're gonna love the Malpass Brothers. If you like sweet tea, barbecue & collards, you're gonna love the Malpass Brothers. If you like clean fresh air over a freshly-plowed field, if you like a great big ol' corn puddin' at a homecoming covered dish, you're gonna love the Malpass Brothers. That's a promise. (And you don't lie about a covered dish supper.) This is the real deal, folks. There is no pretense. This is music steeped in the legacy of the Louvin Brothers, Johnny Cash, Marty Robbins, Hank Williams, Sr. & others. Count on classic, real country. Count on new Malpass tunes. Count on a couple of old-time traditional gospels. Count on their probably coming down into the house at intermission and asking what you'd like to hear. Count on giggles and ribbing between brothers, along with daddy on the bass, who's bound to be thinking, "What the hell are they doing now?" Count on some big, high man hair, and maybe an Elvis twitch or two. Count on lines at the CD table... and count on logging on to see where they'll be next. :)

Showtime: 8:00pm | Doors Open: 7:00pm Prices: Tickets Only - $19.95-$59.95 | Dinner and Theater -$37.95-$77.95 Dailey and Vincent Tour Packages Available - Call to purchase packages: 888.447.4725 - see more here (plus tax & fees) This concert will be held at the Blue Gate Performing Arts Center Buy My Tickets Now! Jamie Dailey and Darrin Vincent became the most heralded new act in bluegrass as their debut album Dailey & Vincent (2008) and busy tour schedule introduced them to wildly appreciative audiences. The group took home seven awards at the 2008 International Bluegrass Music Awards Show, including Entertainer of the Year and Album of the Year. Brothers from Different Mothers presents the band at a level of synergy that only comes from constant live performing. It exudes the enthusiasm of a venture still fresh for all its participants. Jamie Dailey and Darrin Vincent have been bluegrass musicians throughout their careers and never depart from that core sensibility on Brothers from Different Mothers. But, like the earliest icons, they also push the bluegrass envelope. Best of all, they've found the closest thing to brotherhood - a true musical partnership. Jamie Dailey (guitar, bass, lead and harmony vocals) was hired by Doyle Lawson & Quicksilver in 1998 as lead, baritone and tenor singer and bass player. Three years later he switched to guitar, but he continued to sing lead and harmony vocals on the concert trail and on nine of the band's albums. During Jamie's tenure the band won 13 IBMA Awards - including Vocal Group of the Year from 2001-2007 and Song of the Year for Blue Train, which featured his singing - and earned four Grammy® and five Dove Award nominations. Jamie has recorded with Dolly Parton and Rhonda Vincent, appeared on five Gaither Homecoming DVD's, and was a guest on Ricky Skaggs' Grammy-winning Brand New Strings album. Darrin Vincent (mandolin, bass, guitar, lead and harmony vocals) started singing at age three and playing music at age six as part of his family band, The Sally Mountain Show, along with sister Rhonda Vincent. As a member of Ricky Skaggs and Kentucky Thunder for the past ten years, Darrin has won five Grammy Awards (Ancient Tones, Soldier of the Cross, A Simple Life, Brand New Strings, Instrumentals) and eight IBMA Awards for Instrumental Group of the Year. He also performed on Grammy-winning albums by Dolly Parton (The Grass is Blue) and Jimmy Sturr (Top of the World). He has performed and recorded with a multitude of other artists including Nora Jones, Emmylou Harris, Earl Scruggs, Bruce Hornsby, Vince Gill, John Hartford and Keith Urban. Darrin earned three Grammy nominations for co-producing Rhonda Vincent's One Step Ahead, Ragin' Live and All American Bluegrass Girl. His other production credits include Susie Luchsinger's Dove Award-nominated Count It All Joy, The Cherryholmes' Bluegrass Vagabonds, and Hunter Berry's IBMA-nominated Wow Baby.

Josiah for President

When former Congressman Mark Stedman throws in the towel on his presidential campaign, his only choice is to return to his home state and decide how to spend the rest of his life ... until he meets Josiah Stoltzfus, an Amish farmer from Pennsylvania. Stedman learns more from Josiah in a few hours than in his many years in office. He comes to the conclusion that someone like Josiah should be running the country. Not a career politician, but someone with a little old-fashioned common sense, someone who's not afraid of rolling up his sleeves and getting his hands dirty. Someone like Josiah Stoltzfus. Using his old campaign headquarters for a base, Mark Stedman determines to introduce a new candidate to America. Without Josiah's consent or knowledge, he becomes a write-in candidate for the Presidency. Mark pledges to do everything in his power to make sure Josiah gets elected. But can a plain man of faith turn the tide of politics and become the leader of America, and what will he have to risk to do it?

Their musical influences immerge from all genres of music including bluegrass, rhythm and blues, folk, and country, contemporary acoustic and southern gospel. They perform frequently at the Grand Ole Opry, are active members on the Gaither Homecoming Videos and Concert Series and travel throughout the year performing internationally.

Restless Heart & Shenandoah

Showtime: 8:00pm | Doors Open: 7:00pm Prices: Tickets Only $24.95 - $84.95 | Dinner and Theater $42.95 - $102.95 (plus tax & fees) This Concert will be held at the Blue Gate Performing Arts Center This show on sale Nov 8th, 2019 at 10am! RESTLESS HEART Restless Heart lead singer Larry Stewart can remember the exact moment and place his life began to change forever. "I was driving east on I-40 from West Nashville into town to an appointment," he recalls. "Back then, I was listening to what we were doing in my Jeep Cherokee every day. I had turned the radio on, and 'Let The Heartache Ride' was right in the middle of the acapella intro." Stewart had been living with the song for a while, and hearing it through his car speakers wasn't that big of a deal - until he looked at the stereo and saw the numbers 97.9. "It didn't sink in because I had it in the tape deck for days, then I realized 'That's the radio. It's WSIX.' I pulled over on the shoulder around White Bridge Road and sat there with my car idling. It was like yesterday." 'Yesterday' has come full circle for Restless Heart. Then one of Nashville's newest acts, the band is celebrating their 30th Anniversary in 2013, and Dave Innis enjoys the musical ride as much as ever. "I think it's been an amazing legacy, and it's been such an honor to have been part of an organization that is still together doing it after thirty years with the same five original guys, and it's more fun than ever." John Dittrich, Greg Jennings, Paul Gregg, Dave Innis, and Larry Stewart - the men who make up Restless Heart have enjoyed one of the most successful careers in Country Music history, placing over 25 singles on the charts - with six consecutive #1 hits, four of their albums have been certified Gold by the RIAA, and they have won a wide range of awards from many organizations - including the Academy of Country Music's Top Vocal Group trophy. Those stats aside, Innis feels that their career goes much deeper than that. "In the past few years, we have really started to branch out in the community, particularly our work with the Nashville Rescue Mission. We have hosted an event called Restless Heart & Friends - Music With A Mission that we do at the Schermerhorn Center with the Nashville Symphony. We invite a lot of our friends in the industry across all genres to join us, and all of the money we raise goes to the Nashville Rescue Mission. The other thing that stands out is the tours we have done in support of the men and women of the Armed Forces. We did some tours with the Air Force, going all over the world."

Old Time Preachers Quartet

While the name of the group may be new, the members of the quartet will be familiar faces to the fans of Southern Gospel Music. The Old Time Preachers Quartet was formed by industry leader Les Butler with a desire to blend old time preaching with traditional quartet singing. This combination has resonated with the fans of Gospel music and has made the Old Time Preachers Quartet one of the most exciting new groups to come along in years. They have already garnered two Top 20 Singing News hit songs as well as a #1 song on the Christian Music Weekly chart. The quartet has been invited to sing at many of Gospel music's major events including the National Quartet Convention, Blue Gate Theater, Shadow Valley and the Seminole Sing. They have also appeared on Daystar's hit TV show Gospel Music Showcase. The quartet received two Top 5 nominations in the 2017 Diamond Awards; Sunrise Quartet and Album of the Year. Singing bass for the Old Time Preachers Quartet is Mike Holcomb. For Years, Mike has been considered one of the all-time great bass singers. He has won the Singing News Fan Award for Favorite Bass Singer six times. Mike was a member of the Inspirations for over 40 years. Mike states, "I'm excited about the opportunity of singing with the Old Time Preachers Quartet. The name says it all. We are old time preachers who believe in the old time way. The old time Gospel still does the job. I know, that I know, that I know the old time Word of God preached in its power and purity, or presented under the influence of the Spirit of God, still works!" The burden to start this unique group was first placed on group member, Les Butler. Les has been involved in the industry nearly 40 years as a DJ, TV host, producer, studio musician, as well as Publisher of the Singing News magazine. Fans have also seen him on stage with countless artists including, but not limited to, the Kingsmen, Hoppers, Crabb Family and more. Les serves as the group's baritone and piano player. Singing tenor for the Old Time Preachers Quartet is Tim Owns. Tim also sang with the Inspirations along with other groups. Tim is married and has two children. Like the other members of the quartet, Tim is a preacher and travels the country as an evangelist when not on the road with the group. Rounding out the group as lead is Lee McNeill. Before joining the Old Time Preachers Quartet, Lee sang with the Lumber River Quartet and also with his family group, the McNeill Family. Like the rest of the members, Lee is also a preacher. Lee serves as an associate pastor at New Hope Baptist Church in Roanoke, Virginia.

Newsboys United w/ Adam Agee

For more than three decades, Newsboys have been defying the odds. After initially forming in Australia, they landed on American soil with only pennies to their name and eventually became one of the biggest bands in Christian music history. Today, Newsboys have sold more than 10 million units spanning 23 recordings. In addition, they've amassed eight Gold certifications, 33 #1 radio hits, four GRAMMY nominations, two American Music Award nominations and multiple Dove Awards. Through the years, the faces of Newsboys have changed, but the mission has remained the same: One band. One heart. One brotherhood. Perhaps nothing embodies this mantra more than their current iteration as former members Peter Furler and Phil Joel join Michael Tait, Duncan Phillips, Jeff Frankenstein and Jody Davis for a supersized season of touring and recording that's ultimately resulted in a brand-new studio project, aptly titled United (FairTrade Services). The history-making reunion first began to take shape when the current lineup invited Furler to sing on the band's worship single, "The Cross Has The Final Word." Still, none of them knew the fire that collaboration would spark. "When you're working together, you start to have conversations, and we started chatting about what it would look like to have two eras of the band tour at the same time," Furler explains. "Before it started, we didn't know if it was going to work or how it was going to work." This initial uncertainty was due, in part, to the continued success the band has enjoyed since Tait took the helm in 2009. With signature songs like "We Believe," "Born Again" and Platinum-certified mega hit "God's Not Dead," which birthed a film franchise of the same name, Newsboys have continued to collect career-defining accolades at full speed ahead. Instead, the idea of the blockbuster lineup was birthed naturally through their longtime friendship. After a nine-year absence, Furler-a driving force behind iconic Newsboys hits like "He Reigns," "Entertaining Angels" and "Shine"-along with key former lyricist, vocalist and bassist Phil Joel, returned to the stage for a strategic limited run of "Newsboys United" dates. Heading into the first show, the six members were nervous, unsure of the outcome. However, their debut as a supergroup delivered a clear verdict. The combination of Newsboys-past and present-together again on one stage was unstoppable, and fans clamored for more. The band officially reunited on the highly-anticipated Newsboys United Tour in 2018 before headlining 2019's Winter Jam Tour Spectacular-Christian music's largest annual tour-and then joining Michael W. Smith on a 10-city worship trek. Collectively, they've now performed more than 150 shows nationwide. It was only a matter of time before they found themselves in the studio together again. "No one had a clue that this Newsboys United smashup would even work, and now who can deny it's been nothing short of fantastic?" Tait remarks. "I often say God works in mysterious ways and mischievous ways. It's been an absolute pleasure and joy." Known for their unparalleled live shows, where the energy is at a fever pitch, the drum kit rotates, and the production is unmatched, Newsboys' expanded lineup represents the same ideals on stage that the band members harnessed in the studio for United, where themes of friendship, unity and diversity organically emerged. "In a very un-united United States these days, it's powerful to see a Caucasian and an African-American on the stage speaking the same message in a unified way," Tait asserts. Furler and Tait's unified front on stage translates to tape as they effortlessly trade lead vocals on the album, blending both the past and the present. Along with Geoff Duncan, Furler steered the production reigns and returned as a lyricist for the band, copenning four of the collection's 10 tracks. The funky groove of "Love One Another," which he co-wrote, features guest vocals from former dcTalk member Kevin Max, while tracks like the worshipful "Set Me Ablaze," originally recorded by Bethel Music, and soaring lead single "Greatness Of Our God" continue Newsboys' rich history of recording songs that resonate with fans of all ages. "'Greatness Of Our God' comes off live like a freight train. It's powerful," offers Tait of the radio hit. "As believers, it's important to constantly be reminded of the greatness of our God, and the song says it perfectly." "When they hear the music, I hope it's not as preachy as it is practical-things that have worked in our lives that we've found freedom in, like freedom in Christ," he adds. "We just want to love people through the music." For Furler, selections like "Only The Son (Yeshua)" and "Fearless" helped personally define the band's unexpected evolution. "I think, for me, it's not so much the songs themselves," he reflects, "but these songs represent moments when we realized it was going to work vocally." Both frontmen consistently compliment one another. "Mike's an amazing singer. He's one of the best on the planet," Furler emphasizes. "We had to try to figure out how our voices were going to blend." "There was a selflessness in making the record," Tait adds. "When Pete sings, it's magical." The magic of two lead singers, six life-long friends and one rock-solid mission form the undercurrent for both the album and the band. "Recording this Newsboys United album did so much more than just bring two eras of the band together," Furler observes. "It has made us one in spirit, purpose and love." No matter who's taking the lead, Newsboys knows what they've forged over 30-plus years is rare. It goes beyond music, awards and notoriety. No matter what stage they're gracing, Newsboys will be standing tall as a symbol of unity, defying the odds, together.

Josiah for President

When former Congressman Mark Stedman throws in the towel on his presidential campaign, his only choice is to return to his home state and decide how to spend the rest of his life ... until he meets Josiah Stoltzfus, an Amish farmer from Pennsylvania. Stedman learns more from Josiah in a few hours than in his many years in office. He comes to the conclusion that someone like Josiah should be running the country. Not a career politician, but someone with a little old-fashioned common sense, someone who's not afraid of rolling up his sleeves and getting his hands dirty. Someone like Josiah Stoltzfus. Using his old campaign headquarters for a base, Mark Stedman determines to introduce a new candidate to America. Without Josiah's consent or knowledge, he becomes a write-in candidate for the Presidency. Mark pledges to do everything in his power to make sure Josiah gets elected. But can a plain man of faith turn the tide of politics and become the leader of America, and what will he have to risk to do it?
