Papa Byrd inducted into Country Gospel Music Hall of Fame

This year was very special to Papa Byrd as friends and family gathered

together to share a special day with The Byrd Family.  

This year there was a big surprise for Papa Byrd. 

Senator Jesse Stone, pictured above on left, read the official 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 13.  Pastor Mary had tears of joy

as she presented him the award. 




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.


Sarah Byrd 

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.
