|Music group back again for Fair community church|
|Written by Holyoke Enterprise|
River, a nationally known touring group, is returning to Holyoke for a second year to perform at the Phillips County Fair community church service at Homesteaders Park Sunday, July 27, beginning at 9 a.m.
In case of bad weather, the service will be held at First Baptist Church in Holyoke.
Made up of Paul Marino, Kurt Linn and Phil Reesnes, the trio has impacted thousands at over 1,300 concerts and events over the course of their career.
The group has released 10 recordings since the band formed in 1989. Since 1997, River has been one of the most played artists on Christian radio with 15 singles climbing into the Top 20 on national inspirational charts.
“I will,” “My Love” and “God of Every Generation” are a few of the group’s most successful records, along with “Road to Redemption,” which served as the theme song for the Billy Graham Association’s World Wide Pictures movie also entitled “Road to Redemption.”
The band’s growth and longevity are due to more than just great songs and strong harmonies. Integrity and accountability have always been at the heart of River’s ministry.
Shortly after starting the group, River formed a board of directors to provide vision, direction and accountability. Each group member also has a personal mentor with whom they meet regularly.
