BPC Makes a Joyful Noise

MOUNT VERNON—A wonderful chorus was heard in Saliba Chapel Friday, Feb. 17 as Brewton-Parker College hosted a free concert by the Jubalheirs, a praise and proclamation ministry comprising 125 female ministry leaders from churches throughout the state of Georgia. Students, staff, and local families joined together to hear the ladies perform accompanied by a full orchestra, piano, and organ. The atmosphere was charged with praise and worship as the audience enjoyed beautiful, passionate solos and empowering hymns.
“It was such a joy to host the Jubalheirs on our campus this past weekend,” commented former professor and chair of the college’s Division of Music, Dr. Hildegard “Hiddie” Stanley. “Not only did these talented women sing and play instruments (hand-bells, keyboards, and orchestra), but they were ministering to people and churches of the Daniell Baptist Association. They are wonderful musicians with a heart for missions. God alone knows the impact upon the people in our area.”
Founded in 1973, the Jubalheirs are sponsored by the Georgia Baptist Convention. The ladies provide their own funds for travel and participate in many mission projects in the U.S. and abroad. All proceeds from CD sales and love offerings go towards their missions, including their latest charity, offering scholarships for Georgia Baptist Summer Music Camps.
The mission of Brewton-Parker College, a Georgia Baptist college, is to develop the whole student through the application of Biblically-centered truth to a liberal arts curriculum in a community of shared Christian values.
