Interview Questions: 

GE: What is the history of your ministry?

Birthed out of a need for a group to fill in at last minute due to a group canceling at The Gospel Barn in Dora, AL. Around 2005-2006. Then in 2010 when A young Trent Harbison and Mike GRISSOM joined the group they begin regularly opening for the Barn Venue 30 minutes before the Concert Venue. The soon grew into and additional 4th Saturday night Concert featuring The Gospel Barn Qt & Band with a guest group. That night was greatly attended and supported. We then took booking at churches which soon put the part-time group on road 2-3 weekends per month. In 2013, when Bob Uptain of LGS Ministries moved to Lee's the GBQ began singing regular as one of the 2 Barn Groups per month using its 1/2 of the love offering and concessions to pay 100% of the Gospel Barn bills. Thus, keeping the Traditon started in 2004 going to present day Venues Jan-Oct on 2nd Saturday of each month hosting groups like New Gound, Masters Four and many others from AL, TN and Miss.
