The combined six chapters of Singing Men of Texas are returning to Ukraine with evangelist, Michael Gott April 20-May 1, 2015. This is the fifth mission to Ukraine by groups from SMOT. God has blessed those four missions with cumulative written decisions for Christ of over 14,000 Ukrainians. We give glory to God for what He has done, and ask Him to do it again!
Jay Ghormley, director of the south chapter of SMOT, is the coordinator for this mission. Director of the West chapter of SMOT, Todd Wilson, and director of the Panhandle chapter, Dan Baker, will be co-directors of the choir. At this point over 100 men make up the choir and instrumental ensemble for this mission.
Because of the ever-changing political situation in Ukraine plans are still in process for the cities and the concert sites. There is a Plan A and Plan B, still to be decided upon. The Michael Gott Ukrainian team and local pastors are looking for the largest concert sites in the cities we will visit. As soon as the plan is determined, it will be included on this site. Please pray for wisdom for the team.
Michael Gott returned from Ukraine in late November for treatment for lymphoma at M.D. Andersen Hospital in Houston. Please pray for God to accomplish His purpose in Michael, and if He chooses to bring healing and strength for Michael, so that he can join us on this mission.
There are still major expenses of the trip for hall rentals, equipment rental, advertising, publicity printing , advertising, etc. that must be raised. If you choose to send a donation for that purpose, please send your check made out to Singing Men of Texas to:
Baptist General Convention of Texas
333 N. Washington
Dallas, TX 75246-1798-1798
The Singing Men of Texas are following the admonition of Henry Blackaby to find where God is at work, and join Him there. It’s obvious from our prior missions to Ukraine that He is at work there. And we are seeking to join Him in what He is doing.
This blog site will be our place to provide relevant information and prayer requests and updates. As concert sites, dates and other plans are confirmed we will post them here. Please help spread the word and get people to subscribe to this page so that you won’t miss a single post. We need thousands of prayer warriors as we make final preparations to go to Ukraine in April.
