Well saints, The Greatest Gift has chartered its course. We competed back in May at the Down East Country Music Association in 4 categories, the Gospel Vocal Group of the Year, Gospel Male Vocalist of the Year (Pastor Wayne), Gospel Male Entertainer of the Year, (Pastor Wayne), and Gospel Instrumentalist of the Year (Mike). We went to the award show on August 30th 2023 in Litchfield Maine and came in first in all 4 categories. The Greatest Gift is on the move! Thank you so much DECMA for having The Greatest Gift as one of the featured artists today. We’ll see you all in Pigeon Forge next March on the national and international stage! God bless you all and to God be the glory!

The Greatest Gift Resumes Touring

STETSON MAINE – Well folks it was opening day for The Greatest Gift. We were so blessed! After over a year of staying in and being masked, we played like we had never stopped. We were so blessed that we had a chance to minister to and bless Stetson First Baptist Church. The pastor, Brian McCarthy and his wife Debbie made us feel so comfortable and gave us nice rooms to stay in at the church. The congregation was so moved by the music and message as we were also. Thank you so much Stetson First Baptist Church. You are a very loving church filled with passion and compassion for others. We look forward to our return later on in the winter. May you all continue to encourage each other to achieve the same common goal- why we all serve the Lord: for the lost to be saved and heaven bound. You are always in our prayers. God bless you all ~ Pastor Wayne, Krys and Mike of The Greatest Gift, Gospel music group
