The Erwins will be performing gospel music at Grace Church in Mahomet on Sept. 15.

Resurrection of Faith Tour

The Resurrection of Faith Tour, featuring the Erwins from Texas and Nashville’s Joseph Habedank, is coming to Grace Church, 800 W. Oak St. in Mahomet at 6 p.m. Sept. 15. The concert is a blend of youth, energy, harmony, testimony and gospel.

“Singing is all we know and all we want to do,” says Keith Erwin. “It’s our life and our joy to serve the Lord with the voices he has given us. We will gladly go through any door he chooses to open, no matter how big or small. We know the Lord doesn’t need us, but he chooses to use us, and for that, we are thankful.”

Habedank, a Dove-award-winning, Grammy-nominated singer-songwriter, was named the 2017 soloist of the year for gospel music. He currently is in the Top 5 nominees for 2018 for favorite soloist, song, album and songwriter of the year and was nominated for three 2018 Dove awards.

Junior high to college-age students are invited to meet the artists prior to the concert. While the students are doing the meet and greet, everyone else is invited to participate in a hymn sing.
