Incredible weekend on the Rocky Top in the Big Apple Ministry Trip to New York! Absolutely great night of worship at Carnegie Hall last night to a very engaging audience, with Michael Tait, Alicia Williamson-Garcia, Jeff Lawrence, Jason Breland and the awesome worship choirs from Concord Baptist and Grace Baptist in Knoxville Tennessee! We had some Church at Carnegie!!! Great to see Roger and Linda Breland as well! Topped off by going to Brooklyn Tabernacle this morning and having a free day in the Big Apple! The choir is alive and well in New York City!
