         Pastor Rhys Stenner and the Church Family of New Hope Baptist in Fayetteville Georgia are very excited to present our 3rd annual Come Together Benefit Concert for Wellspring Living! Last year's Sellout Concert was a hugely successful night and a wonderful worship experience for everyone who joined us. This year promises to be more of the same as we feature a stellar list of renowned awarding winning gospel artists and the New Hope Baptist Church Choir & Orchestra.


         Wellspring Living has restorative programs for girls who had been devastated by trauma and forced prostitution designed to make a tangible difference in the lives of the hopeless and broken. Wellspring Living has seen God’s power change the lives of women who were thrown away by the world into new creations full of wholeness, beauty and devotion to the Lord Jesus Christ.

Proceeds from ticket sales will go to Wellspring Living. This promises to be another sell out event! Get your tickets early!


Andrae' Crouch

         Andraé Edward Crouch is an award-winning gospel musician, recording artist, songwriter, arranger, and producer. His religious songs have been performed by Elvis Presley, Paul Simon, and church choirs and other musical groups around the world. He has won eight GRAMMY® awards, six GMA Dove awards and an Oscar nomination. Crouch was inducted into the Gospel Music Association’s Gospel Music Hall of Fame in 1998.

         He has been called the “the father of the modern gospel,” because he more than anyone expanded gospel music to include elements of R&B and modern popular styles during the 70s and 80s.

         Some of Crouch's most popular songs include “The Blood Will Never Lose Its Power,” “Through It All,” “Bless His Holy Name,” and “My Tribute.” Their contemporary gospel sound reached beyond the traditional African American base and touched a racially and musically diverse audience. Several musical groups and solo performers recorded Crouch’s more popular works, further expanding his musical influence.

         He has worked as a producer or arranger with Michael Jackson, Madonna, Quincy Jones, Diana Ross, Elton John and Rick Astley. His film credits include Once Upon A Forest, The Color Purple, The Lion King, and Free Willy.

         Andraé Crouch has won numerous awards over the years. In addition to his GRAMMY® Awards and GMA Dove Awards, he has received ASCAP, Billboard and NAACP Image Awards. In 2004, he became the only living contemporary gospel artist—and just the third in history—to have his star enshrined on the prestigious Hollywood Walk of Fame. In 2005, Crouch was the recipient of the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences’ Inaugural Salute to Gospel Music Lifetime Achievement Award.

         Andrae Crouch serves as Senior Pastor at the New Christ Memorial Church of God in Christ in San Fernando, California, the church founded by his parents. He has recently signed a new record deal with Riverphlo Entertainment and is releasing his new album titled The Journey in the Spring of 2011. A documentary on Crouch’s incredible musical journey, as well as a television show, book and other media properties are in the works for 2011 and 2012.


         Vickie Winans is an award-winning superstar gospel recording artist, and a revered as a consummate business woman that heads up Viviane, Inc. where she manages herself and books hundreds of shows per year. She is also the President of her own record label, Destiny Joy Records. A producer, director, songwriter, actress and also a comedienne.

         Among all of her many accolades, Winans feels that her most rewarding accomplishments are the significant roles she plays in her family. She is a sister-in-law to BeBe & CeCe Winans, and is a loving sibling to her 11 brothers and sisters, (the Bowman family). She is the mother of two hit producers and singers, Mario Winans and Marvin Winans, Jr., and grandmother to five.

         Winans is one of the best-known artists in gospel music with signature songs such as "How I Got Over," "Shake Yourself Loose," "As Long As I Got King Jesus" and "We Shall Behold Him" to her credit. Winans has been profiled in Ebony magazine, USA Today and the Associated Press. Her profile on BET's Sunday morning TV series "Lift Every Voice" remains the most watched episode in that program's history with over 800,000 viewers

Anthony Evans

         Anthony Evans is the son of Dr. Tony Evans, the founder and president of the internationally syndicated radio and television program “The Alternative” and senior pastor of the more than 8,000-member Oak Cliff Bible Fellowship.

         Growing up singing, Anthony’s musical career took a more serious turn after college when he began a two-year stint as a vocalist with TRUTH. Next he toured for four extraordinary years as a vocalist for good friend and gospel music sensation Kirk Franklin. His performances with Kirk, including “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno,” “Soul Train,” and appearances on the Grammy, Stellar and Dove Award telecasts have become invaluable learning experiences. Anthony’s other musical influences vary from Amy Grant, Steven Curtis Chapman and Michael W. Smith to Commissioned, Andre’ Crouch and The Winans.

         For the past six years Anthony has been a solo artist; writing, arranging, and singing around the globe. He has recorded 4 albums: “Even More”, “Letting Go”, “The Bridge,” and most recently his debut Christmas album “What Christmas Means.” All three of Anthony’s major releases were written at times in life when he was trying to understand the depth of God’s love. As the message of “The Bridge” conveys, Anthony is content to worship as God leads him on this incredible journey. “The Bridge” include such staples as “In Christ Alone,” “Wonderful, Merciful Savior,” and “Everlasting God,” while Even More (debut album), and “Letting Go” (sophomore album) introduce Anthony’s life songs; “Restore Me,” “Here’s My Life,” and “I Choose Now.”

         Not only have two Evans music videos stayed in the #1 spot on Gospel Music Channel for five consecutive weeks, but in 2008, Anthony’s “The Bridge” topped the charts as the #1 downloaded Christian album in the country. Evans is a much-sought-after leader of worship. Anthony has teamed with varying organizations including the Billy Graham Evangelical Association, Lifeway, Women of Faith, Promise Keepers, and many more, as his heart and their messages have crossed.


         Singer, songwriter, television talk-show host, and college professor. Babbie has had chart-topping singles such as 'All Rise', 'Each One, Reach One', 'A World of Difference', 'With All My Heart', and 'Hallowed Be Thy Name'. Numerous Dove and Stellar Award nominations. 2 Dove Awards for Musical of the Year, 'Make Us One' and Gospel Recorded Song of the Year, 'Stop By The Church'.

         Babbie has performed for U.S. presidents, Carter, Bush, & Ford, sung in Billy Graham crusades, and appeared with Bill and Gloria Gaither and their 'Homecoming Friends'. She has been part of the popular Women of Faith tour and hosts a television talk show, Babbie's House, which is broadcast on WATC in Atlanta as well as nationally and throughout Europe and Africa.

         Babbie adds yet another title to her list of talents with her second book, Faithful. She touches the deep places of the soul with heartwarming stories and real-life experiences to challenge you to rely on the truths of God's word in spite of how you may feel.


         Marvin has eight recordings to his credit and two video presentations. Marvin Matthews is the music industry's best-kept secret. Marvin has worked with a host of popular artists including Debbie Boone, Andrae Crouch, Bob Hope, Mark Lowry, Little Richard, Karen Wheaton, Deniece Williams, and CeCe Winans.

         Marvin Matthews has been featured on most major Christian networks, including The Word Network, TBN and CBN. God vigorously uses Marvin's musical talent, but much more, he uses his heart;a heart that He has developed in this contemporary gospel artist over the years. Truly, the only thing greater than Marvin's voice is his love for Jesus, his family and the body of Christ to which he ministers.

         Marvin is committed to inciting love in the Body of Christ. He sings because he’s happy. He sings because he’s free to be all God has called him to be.


         This benefit concert promises to be another incredible worship experience! Don't miss your opportunity for a wonderful night of worship and praise! General admission tickets are only $20 to see all of these famous gospel artists with proceeds helping benefit this incredibly worthy cause!
