Conference youth choir completes six-stop summer tour

“Facing Giants” was the theme of this year’s Arkansas Conference Council on Youth Ministries choir tour, which traveled around the state June 23-29. Fifty-two youth from across Arkansas joined together to present a program that included a mix of sacred and secular music at six different tour stops:  Sardis (Bauxite), Elm Springs, Pocohontas, Marianna, Sulphur Springs and St. James (Little Rock) UMCs.
Youth on the tour task force included Kristin Shults and Alex Hendrickson, co-coordinators; Maggie Rogers, Mackenzie Turner and Bailey Balcom. Adults serving on the task force were Rosemarie Gagnon, Rod Hocott, Britney Andrews and Sara Tenison. In addition, adults Jeff Turner and Brooke Crumpler provided assistance before and during the tour.
A video recording of the choir’s June 29 performance at St. James UMC Little Rock is available online.
