What Our Clients Say
It is with great excitement that I write to tell you about Celebration Concert Tours! Recently, 280+ of my members & I enjoyed the incredible heart, work & ministry of this great company. The entire staff are dedicated to making sure the “client” is truly taken care of!
From the very beginning through the final hour, my folks and I were handled with “TLC” like we have never experienced before! If you are looking for an opportunity for your choir & orchestra to travel together, hands down I would recommend CCT. They are “Topshelf” in EVERY way! Use them…I did, and plan to do so again!Scott WhiteSenior Minister of Music and Worship, First Baptist Church, Woodstock
When you look up EXCELLENCE and TEAM in the dictionary it should say Celebration Concert Tours! Never before have I seen an organization do what they do as efficiently and with such care for people as CCT. It is obvious they love the Lord and that their love for Him and people give them great passion in their ministry!
I always count it a blessing when I get to experience one of those “God-moments” in ministry that was very clearly ordained, planned, and blessed by the Lord. You know when that’s happening because of the ministry moments that occur and the way lives are changed. The Bellevue Choir and Orchestra just experienced 5 days of that on our New York Worship Celebration trip with Celebration Concert Tours. Our people were able to be ministry focused and we saw the Lord do amazing things in our midst. I truly believe a big reason for all of that was the incredible heart for ministry and professional excellence displayed by Phil Barfoot and his team!
From the initial roll-out meeting through the last person’s arrival back in Memphis, CCT was on top of every detail. Their attention to detail is over-the-top and their experience with group travel shows in every decision. As a leader, I needed to know that my people were going to be cared for. With CCT, I always knew they were in great hands. The attention to group needs was constantly monitored but they didn’t overlook individual needs in the process!
Our group fell in love with the CCT staff almost immediately. If you’re considering taking your group on a ministry trip (and you should), you definitely want to work with Phil Barfoot and Celebration Concert Tours. You’ll hear from your folks what I’ve heard too many times to count, “My life will never be the same because of this trip. Praise God for Phil and his team!”Mark BlairWorship Pastor, Bellevue Baptist Church
In the Christian realm, servant leadership is more than a strategy, it’s Godly. The Bible says Jesus came not to be served, but to serve. The highest compliment I can give to Phil, Sheri and the Celebration Concert Tours team is to affirm their commitment to Christ, shown through tireless, consistent courtesy and care extended to each individual.
During our tours to NYC and Washington D.C., everyone was treated equally and generously as honored guests. In moments of injury or illness, care was immediate and appropriate. In moments demanding flexibility, it abounded. Your church family and musicians are their priority! They are your biggest fans and cheerleaders.I also appreciate Phil’s commitment to excellence. The hotels, buses, etc., are high in quality – just what you want your musicians and church family to experience!I think of Phil and his team as modern day shepherds rather than tour hosts. To God be the glory!Dr. Doran BuggMusic & Worship Minister

I have now done three events with Celebration Concert Tours, both domestic and international. On every occasion, they have been an absolute pleasure to work with and extremely organized! Phil Barfoot and his team are always able to get their groups into the best venues, they stay at the best hotels, and they always find the best food. Bottom line is, this company does it right! I look forward to doing many more trips with Phil Barfoot and Celebration Concert Tours!Charles BillingsleyWorship Leader, Thomas Road Baptist Church / Artist in Residence, Liberty University
I want to thank Phil Barfoot and Celebration Concert Tours for such an over-the-top music-in-mission trip to England. From the initial meetings throughout the entire process, Phil and his team guided us gracefully through the administrative and logistical elements, which allowed us to concentrate on the ministry portion of this trip. The accommodations, transportation, and food were all stellar, and the concerts exceeded our expectations as opportunities to exalt the name of the Lord Jesus. In fact, a single opportunity (recording at Trinity Broadcasting Network, UK) impacted more people than Idlewild has ever impacted to date—29 million homes representing 69 million people! As a Worship Leader, I can’t tell you how much it helped to not have the administrative responsibility on my shoulders. It is so unusual for me to be able to totally focus on choir members participating in the concerts. In addition to the valuable ministry opportunities, we also had the joy of seeing all the major attractions that any tourist would want to see. I absolutely thought it was a PERFECT balance of touring and ministry. To the person, every attendee expressed their great gratitude for a once in a lifetime trip and that it was worth their time, energies, and resources to attend. Let’s do it again!Dr. Ron UptonMinister of Music, Idlewild Baptist Church
