Vacations are over, and it's back to burning the roads for the Talleys. It's been an eventful summer thus far....
Our longtime sound engineer, web designer, social media manager and video producer, Jared Meyers, recently departed the group to begin a new season of ministry as worship leader and artist-in-residence at First Baptist Church in Sharon, MS. He will also be touring with his family and doing solo concerts. We miss him and his family greatly, but we are very excited to see what the Lord has in store for them on this new adventure. Thanks to Jared for three great years with the Talleys!
On that note, the Lord sent us exactly the right person to take over as sound engineer, driver, media manager, bus mechanic, and court jester. Nick Shelton comes to us from Benton, IL; having previously traveled with the Nelons and his family group, GladHeart. Nick's background is in marketing, but he has many talents for which Roger has already found many uses! Say hi to Nick next time you see us and welcome him aboard.
We're excited to announce our first-ever Empower Conference, which we're hosting in the Smoky Mountains October 27-28. This conference is for organized groups and soloists and folks in music ministry who want to be encouraged and mentored, who are ready to take their ministries to the next level! For two days this fall, we're going to share our ministry experiences and provide training and education for communication from the stage. Roger and Debra will share their business expertise and help you take care of business the right way. Lauren and Debra will provide on-stage coaching, and Jared Meyers will return to teach you about digital media marketing and how best to use it to enhance your ministry. Check out the info and register at www.empowermusicconference.com
If you're interested in going on the Crystal Caribbean Cruise with us January 27-February 1, listen to me: stop putting it off and DO IT! The most affordable cabins ($449/person) are almost gone! Register now, before you miss the boat- literally! We're going with the Hoppers, Karen Peck and New River, Jeff and Sheri Easter, Ivan Parker, Brian Free and Assurance, the Whisnants, the Allen Family.....
(Seriously. You know you'd rather be in the Bahamas with us than in your hometown covered in snow and ice and...winter. Bleh.)
So hurry and sign up at www.abrahamproductions.net. And tell em the Talleys sent you.
Come see us soon and hear our new radio single, "This Thing Called Grace." We've been having some awesome worship experiences lately. Come experience it with us. God's up to big things!
