The Drummond Family will be in concert at 5:30 p.m. Sunday at the Oak Grove United Methodist Church north of Troy.

The Drummond Family had the number three-ranked Southern Gospel music song in the nation in 2012. They are continually ranked with the Crabb Family, Jeff & Sheri Easter, Isaacs, Guy Penrod, the Gaither Vocal Band, Gold City and the Inspirations, said Charlie Newman, church pastor.

“The Drummond Family is an anointed group that travels the Southeast blessing many with their unique style of Southern Gospel music that will be a special blessing,” Newman said. “Their song, ‘Hope in the Valley’ was ranked number three nationally by ‘Southern Gospel Times’ and ‘The Singing News.’ It will be a true blessing to have them at Oak Grove United Methodist Church.”

Newman said there will be no admission charge for the concert but a love offering will be taken.

“The Drummond Family is thankful to be working for the Lord,” said Pat Drummond, manager. “We’ve been traveling the Southeast sharing God’s love in word and song since April 1996, 17 amazing years. Many things have changed in those years but not the call of God, which is without repentance.”

The mission of The Drummond Family is to see souls saved and lives encouraged, healed and delivered and to see Jesus Christ lifted up in praise.

“We pray that something we sing, say or do will help draw someone closer to Jesus,” Drummond said. “We intend our music to be a ministry, not entertainment. We open ourselves to sing anywhere we can share the Gospel of Jesus Christ. We strive to be a witness and a light to all who cross our paths so they, too, can stand tall for what they believe and never be ashamed of the Gospel.”
