FREE Concert: Brothers McClurg
August 31, 2014 | 07:00 PM to 08:30 PM
Houghton College welcomes Christian band, Brothers McClurg to Wesley Chapel this Sunday, August 31 for a night of song and worship. The concert will begin at 7 p.m. and is free and open to the public.
From a legacy that now spans three generations of music and ministry comes the band Brothers McClurg. The group was originally started by brothers Anthony and Chris Hoisington, and now has turned into a group of Christian brothers who share a desire to see lives changed through worship.
The name, Brothers McClurg pays homage to Anthony and Chris’ greatest influence, their maternal grandfather Pastor Bill McClurg, who led the southern gospel group The McClurg Family Singers.
“We see it as a way of continuing the legacy and ministry while giving it a fresh vision,” says Chris.
Hailing from Buffalo, the band has been working to bring a bit of warmth and hope to an area known for its frigid winters and depressed economy. Their mission is to carry Jesus’ message of life, hope and forgiveness. The Brothers want to love their community through prayer and acts of service, blessing the Church and uniting the body of Christ in worship. Their goal is to break down denominational barriers, starting with themselves as each band member comes from a different church tradition.
“We want to spur one another on, lifting up the name of Christ inside the church, as well as in the streets,” adds Anthony. “Our goal is to rally the church to action, loving one another and also loving the ‘unlovely’ and replicating this passion in every city and community we encounter.”
