The Crown College Choir has been a signature of the work at Crown College for many years. Pastor Sexton and Dr. Earl Holloway began the choir over twenty years ago and the Lord has used this ministry in a wonderful way. Each song selection is given to honor the Lord Jesus Christ and point people to the true and living God.
Dr. John Thompson has just become the new choir director for the choir this semester. Dr. Thompson holds a Doctorate of Musical Arts in Voice Performance from the University of Memphis. He and his wife, Anca, have two children: Samuel (3) and Rebecca Grace (2). The Thompsons are actively involved in the Temple Baptist Church and Dr. Thompson has a passion to train young people to sing and lead Christ-honoring music. The choir members are enthused about his leadership.
The 120-voice Crown College Choir traveled this week to sing at the Southwide Baptist Fellowship meeting in Somerville, Alabama. Their presence and songs were a great blessing to all who attended. Pastor Sexton preached after the choir sang and God blessed in a mighty way.
The Crown College Choir will be singing during the World Mission Conference at Temple Baptist Church, Sunday-Wednesday, October 20-23. You may live-stream the services here. A special choir concert has also been planned at the Powell High School Auditorium on Tuesday, October 29 at 7:00 p.m. This concert is open to the community and all are invited to attend.
