Annual B&GH Christmas Open House to feature The Master's Men

October 29, 2019

Lake Waccamaw, NC – The 2019 Boys and Girls Homes of North Carolina Christmas Open House will feature a performance by The Master’s Men.

“We are delighted to bring this event not only to our children, but to the entire community,” said B&GH President Gary Faircloth. “The Master’s Men have a more than 20 year history of providing inspirational music to the glory of God and we are honored to have them return to perform for our community.”

This special performance will take place Sunday, Dec. 1, beginning at 4 p.m. in the Leamon E. Rogers Memorial Chapel on the Boys and Girls Homes’ campus. A light reception will follow in the Fellowship Hall. Admission is free and all are welcome. No reservations are needed.

The Master’s Men is a male a cappella ensemble based out of the Triangle area with a goal to spread the message of God’s love in song. Founded by the late Rudy Partin, the group of 21 is currently directed by Robert Cox with assistance from Larry Triplett, a founding member of the group. The Master’s Men have performed for churches or other religious based gatherings in North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia and Tennessee.

According to The Master’s Men website, “What started as a group of men singing just for pleasure has evolved into a collection of faithful Christians singing for the glory of God. We have grown in wisdom and faith, both individually and as a group and along the way God has blessed our lives by using us to reach out and touch others through our music. We have personally experienced God’s power and love and each of us has been truly blessed as we’ve brought our music ministry to others.”

“We warmly invite anyone with an interest in an inspiring evening to join us for this free event,” said Rev. Joseph Kennedy, director of pastoral care for B&GH. “It will be an uplifting experience.”
