Front Row Seats!

Posted by on Apr 20, 2016 in Events

Here are some of Charlie Zahm’s greatest fans all gathered to hear him play at his closing concert on Saturday evening. They were certainly not disappointed, and Charlie gave a stellar performance to conclude the 2016 Men’s Advance. Charlie performed several Scottish and American ballads, a couple of sing-alongs, and even a few sea-chanties. But my favorites, by far, were some of his old standards, his rendition of “Shenandoah” and a rousing “The Blacksmith of Brandywine.” I believe we had upwards of one-hundred and thirty people in attendance.

Conference registration is now open—online and by mail!  Our 10th annual Men’s Advance is rapidly approaching–scheduled for Friday and Saturday (April 15-16, 2016).

Preparing for Easter

Posted by on Jan 24, 2016 in Events

Easter Sunday comes up very early this year (on Sunday, March 27). In my own personal preparation for this important day I like to reflect upon the person and work of Jesus Christ.
