Since December of 1990, Greater Vision has inspired audiences with their rich vocal blend and their effective ability to communicate the message of the gospel. They have established a firm place at the pinnacle of Christian music, and have become the most awarded trio in the history of Gospel music.

Gerald Wolfe, the group's founder, serves as Pianist and Emcee. Multi-Award-winning Songwriter, Rodney Griffin, sings the lead part for the trio. Chris Allman, writer of the 2015 "Song of the Year", "For All He's Done", sings tenor. Jon Epley is the newest member of the group, having joined April of 2017 as the new Baritone singer.

Greater Vision appears regularly on the InTouch television program, hosted by Dr. Charles Stanley, as well as on the Gaither Gospel Series. Gerald also serves as a co-host on Bill Gaither's syndicated "Homecoming Radio" Show, heard weekly on almost 3000 radio stations around the world, as well as on satellite radio. Their most recent endeavor is as a part of the very popular "Gospel Music Hymn Sing" DVDs and coinciding GMHS events across the USA.

Greater Vision's latest recording, "Still", was produced by Gerald Wolfe and Trey Ivey, with orchestral arrangements by Trey Ivey and Cody McVey. The new CD features brand-new songs written by both Rodney Griffin and Chris Allman, along with several other well-known writers.

More than 175 times every year, Greater Vision presents the Gospel, through music, in a way that has endeared them to audiences around the world.

SOUL'D OUT QUARTET
IN CONCERT

Friday, March 29, 2019

Epworth UMC
105 W 8th St
Matthews, IN 46957
www.matthewseumc.org

Doors open at 6:00 PM, Concert begins at 7:00 PM

$10 at the door.  Also, a love offering will be received.

In May of 2004, in answer to God's call on his life, Matt Rankin of Georgetown, Ohio started a journey to find men of kindred spirits and equal yoking to partner with him in a mission to fulfill that calling by evangelizing God's word through song. Now, Matt's calling and dream have been realized in Soul'd Out Quartet. Soul'd Out Quartet, which is comprised of Dusty Barrett (tenor), Jason McAtee (lead), Matt Rankin (baritone), Ian Owens (bass),  is not only a vocal group continuing the heritage of Southern Gospel music, but is also and foremost a ministry team answering God's call as stated in Ephesians: He gave some apostles, and some prophets, and some evangelists, and some pastors, and teachers; for the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ. (Ephesians 4:11-13 KJV).

 In this spirit, Soul'd Out Quartet travels the country with a mission of evangelism and discipleship to not only win souls for Christ by telling the world "what the world doesn't know", but also to further strengthen and encourage God's people to be the salt and light to the world and ambassadors for Christ, that we are each called to be and to exhort God's people to be servants with hearts on fire!

About EUMC's Concert Outreach Ministry Fund

We are gratefully accepting donations to the Concert Outreach Ministry Fund to enable EUMC to continue to offer concerts by nationally known artists on a regular basis.  The purpose of this ministry is multifold. It will serve as an outreach for the community, provide people who arenít able to travel distances the opportunity to experience high caliber concerts locally, and most importantly help establish or strengthen their relationship with Christ.  

The costs of hosting the concerts can be expensive as these artists have high travel expenses and for many this is their only source of income for their families.   The Fund allows us to help outset the fees involved with hosting the concerts.  Many artists require a minimum honorarium amount, but our goal is to bring the concerts to you at the lowest cost possible.  We will strive to fund on a love offering basis, but there will be times we will have to ticket the events or ask for a suggested donation amount.

Donations made to the Concert Outreach Ministry Fund are eligible for receipts for charitable giving.
