There was a capacity crowd today to hear the testimony of  Paul Longgrear, a retired Special Forces Colonel.  He kept the audience spellbound with his description of how he saw God and accepted Jesus while fighting and almost dying in Vietnam.  The music was incredible, including a rendition of "America" following Col.

About Billy and David


Billy Gray



Here are pictures taken from Billy's latest trip in July 2012 to India.  These were taken at the Nadikudi Orphanage with some of the orphans and Reverand Lazarus.


Before Billy Gray traveled to 45 countries on missionary trips, he was a prosecutor and a prisoner.

Overcoming adversity and hardship, Gray did not lose sight of God, he said. But it wasn't until a pastor in Fort Walton Beach convinced him to travel as a missionary that he really found his calling.

"My first missionary trip was to India," he said. "It changed my life. I didn't really want to go because the missionaries I had met before weren't really entertaining individuals. They were kind of dull. I didn't know what it would be like."

The work done by Billy is mostly in the countryside.  They are often places where mission groups do not go.  His missions have helped dig and pay for fresh water wells and supported children orphaned by natural disaster.  And he is always preaching the gospel to any and all who listen.


David Seering

David Seering's love for music began at age 3 when he started playing piano by ear.  Over the years, he has developed his unique talents and received many accolades for his performances.

David is comfortable both behind the piano and in front of the orchestra, performing everything from the demanding music of Andrew Lloyd Weber to the smooth and easy big band sounds of Johnny Mercer.  His ability to command the piano and sing everything from Frank Sinatra to Harry Connick Jr. to Elton John make his performances truly outstanding.'
