The University of Mobile (UMobile) vocal ensemble Voices of Mobile will be featured on the internationally broadcast television program “In Touch with Dr. Charles Stanley.”
The program airs the week beginning Feb. 23. To find broadcast times and stations, go to www.intouch.org/broadcast/find-a-station. Stanley is senior pastor of First Baptist Church, Atlanta; founder of In Touch Ministries and a New York Times best-selling author.
“It’s a tremendous opportunity for worldwide exposure for our university,” said Roger Breland, vice president for project development and executive director of UMobile’s Center for Performing Arts. “You can be anywhere in the world and you can see Dr. Charles Stanley through his In Touch Ministries.”
In Touch Ministries programs are seen and heard around the world on more than 2,600 radio and television outlets in more than 50 languages, with a mission of leading people worldwide into a growing relationship with Jesus Christ and to strengthen the local church, according to intouch.org.
Breland said Voices has performed at least six times during worship services at First, Atlanta. Stanley’s sermons are taped and later broadcast to stations worldwide. Breland was notified that the group’s performance of the song “Were You There” would be included in the upcoming broadcast.
Voices of Mobile is one of more than 24 vocal and instrumental ensembles at UMobile.
Breland, a member of the Gospel Music Hall of Fame and founder of TRUTH, one of the first contemporary Christian ensembles, travels with Voices as the group shares the gospel message throughout the United States and beyond.
Voices recently returned from a concert in South Padre Island, Texas, and will be performing at the Alabama Baptist State Evangelism Conference in Montgomery on Feb. 25.
