induction and then Pastor Mary Byrd presented the Hall of Fame award to Papa Byrd.Papa Byrd received a standing ovation as
he was presented the award. He also was the 14th member of the Country Gospel Music Hall of Fame. Dolly Parton was number
Pastor Randy and Papa Byrd
Papa Byrd is holding the award he had
just been presented for being inducted into the Country Gospel Music Hall Of Fame. This was one time even Papa Byrd
was almost speechless. You could tell he was filled with joy.
From playing bass
guitar, sharing harmony on The Byrd Family songs, and of course, her solo vocal ministry, Sarah was very active in the Anniversary
Celebration of The Byrd Family Homecoming. Sarah continues to expand her ministry outreach. From sharing
her healing testimony to her wide range of gospel music along with her speaking engagements, Sarah is excited about what
God is doing.
J. Stephen Conn
He has been called pastor, evangelist, author, outdoorsman, and preacher
of the gospel. All those titles would fit J. Stephen Conn because he has pioneered churches, had his books published
and is building his dream mountain home in the hills of Tennessee. We were honored to have J. Stephen Conn as our guest
speaker for one of our Anniversary Celebrations of The Byrd Family. We have traveled over the nation singing as
Stephen would share anointed word ministry in The Byrd Family services. From the Okefenokee Swamp in south Georgia to
the Eastern Shore of Maryland, to the hills of Pennsylvania to the sunshine state of Florida, The Byrd Family and Brother
Conn took the gospel in word and song. Of all the titles he carries, we like the title "Friend" best of all
when we refer to one of America's great speakers and authors, J. Stephen Conn.
