Tribute Quartet’s name came from its version of preserving the heritage and promoting the future of Southern Gospel music. They desired to pay homage to the legends they grew up admiring, carrying that torch respectfully. Yet, they wanted to create a sound uniquely their own, becoming the kind of quartet they believed the Lord was calling them to be today. That's how the Tribute Quartet began. In appearance, warmth and style, this gifted group, based in Nashville, has become exactly what it set out to be, representing Southern Gospel at its finest. — tributequartet.com

The Overflow Conference
February 28-March 1, 2014
The University of Mobile
This conference is designed to help equip and inspire today’s young worship leaders.
The Center for Performing Arts at the University of Mobile is excited to introduce The Overflow Conference. Overflow is a conference designed to help equip and inspire todayʼs young worship leaders with the right skills and heart needed in the ministry of worship leadership. The University of Mobile’s School of Worship Leadership desires to reach outside of its walls to middle and high school aged students who are involved with the ministry of worship leadership in any capacity (worship leader, songwriter, worship band, church musician, technical support team, sound engineer, student pastors/adults leading student worship teams, band director, etc.). Students will have the opportunities to learn or enhance their skills through breakout sessions focusing on different aspects of worship: Skill Breakouts on topics ranging from guitar to sound tech and Heart Breakouts on topics covering the importance of worship preparation. The conference will take place February 28 - March 1, 2014, at the University of Mobile.

7 Churches Tour and Team May 19-29, 2014
Join us May 19-29, 2014 for our third Team/trip to Turkey. We will tour the 7 churches of Revelation 2-3 while impacting the culture. This year we are adding Nicea and Troy. Local cost of $1,300 includes tourist visa, all local housing, transportation and food. Airfare from Mobile to Istanbul is currently $1.250. So total expenses are $2,550. Let Bro. Thomas know of your interest. A $1,250 deposit is due by January 15, 2014 (when we purchase tickets). Final payment of $1,300 is due by April 1, 2014. It is rewarding to share as we go. It is incredible to walk the actual streets in Ephesus where Paul and John worked and Luke practiced medicine. This would be a great gift for your pastor and other staff.
