The concert, which will bring J.B., Barbara, Kevin and James all on stage together singing the Spencer classics, will begin at 7 p.m.
What began with a family's simple desire to serve their local church through music, has since become a ministry for the Spencer Family. JB Spencer and his wife Barbara, along with their three children, Geneice, Wade and Kevin, traveled and sang together for many years. Now the three children, along with their families, have ministries of their own. JB and Barbara are now doing only 30 select dates each year and are very thankful for the heritage that the children's ministries uphold.
Without question, God has certainly blessed the Spencers. Being gifted songwriters, each member's songs have received international airplay, including "In My Robe Of White", He Promised", Let's Meet By The River", It's So Peaceful", and "When I Crossed That River".
