We all make plans, don’t we? When you have a ministry you have to plan ahead but when something like the COVID 19 virus comes along, those plans will often go “up in smoke.” However, as Christians we always remember that God always has a plan, HIs plan is always perfect and He is never surprised!

When the pandemic hit we had several recording projects in the works. Naturally, because of canceled concerts, a decrease in income, social distancing and “stay-at-home orders”, we made the decision to put those projects on the back burner.

However, we are back and recording a brand new project! Southern Gospel Music has a rich history and we at Final Harvest would like to honor that heritage by recording some of those song with incredible messages that have been recorded by other artists. Some of these songs go back 50 plus years and others were recorded only a little over 10 years ago. We love each of these songs and love to sing them in concert. It is also our way of saying “thank you” to those artists who have paved the way for all of us who travel and sing. To that end, we have introduced The Heritage Collection and we have nearly completed Volume One which will be titled, “Let’s Have A Revival … The Old Fashioned Way.”

Songs on the project will be:
Let’s Have A Revival
The Old Fashioned Way
Sometimes It Takes A Mountain
I’m Gonna Make It
Stop Sill And Listen
Hold On Tight
When Revival Comes To Town
I Bowed On My Knees And Cried Holy
Heaven’s Jubilee
You’re My Glory

As many of you know, we have recorded all of our projects with John Centrone of Bethany Ridge Studios. Unfortunately, John relocated and is in the process of rebuilding his studio. We began the search to find someone who could help us record a couple of projects and we found that person right in our own backyard!

Scott Evans handles our radio promotion, manages our social media pages, handles most of our graphic design and manages our website. Now, he is helping us with our recording projects! We are using his recording equipment and his engineering skills to record this project and some of our future projects.

We have completed six of the ten songs for Volume One and are back in the studio recording this week! Heritage Collection Volume Two is already in the works and hopefully, as things begin to open again and our traveling schedule gets back on track, we will be announcing other recording projects in the not-to-distant future! Be on the lookout right here for more information on “Let’s Have A Revival … The Old Time Way” and release dates of this and future projects!

“I was glad when they said unto me, Let us go into the house of LORD.” That verse, in Psalm 122:1, has come to mean a lot more to us these days! Like all of the other Gospel artists out there, we have had a multitude of cancellations and we have seen the opportunity to gather in the house of LORD be diminished severely.

However, today we were back into the house of LORD and that house was a tent! It was a HOT and HUMID day with a warm breeze blowing through the tent. It was kind of reminiscent of those old fashioned revival tents that we grew up with! That is one of the reasons we sang this great, old Hemphills song!

Revival! That is exactly what this old world needs right now! However, revival does not come from the church, true revival comes from God and God alone! We were on a roll with revival songs today and we love sharing “When Revival Comes To Town”

It was a great weekend all around. On Saturday evening we had the chance to meet and fellowship with a wonderful family group called The Johnson Family. It is always a fun time to visit with fellow artists and trade “road stories” and learn more about each other ministries. We also had our webmaster, Scott Evans, along with us this weekend and he took these videos and photos on his phone. He also was working on mastering our new project this weekend! More about that a little later this week! Perhaps the most inspiring part of the weekend was hearing the incredible testimony of a young lady who was healed from Stage Four Cancer. It was an amazing and inspiring testimony reminding us of the power and the goodness of God! What a great reminder that no matter what we are going though, God has it fully under control and it’s “Almost Morning”

A very special thank you to Pastor Dan Thurber and Oak Orchard Assembly of God for opening their church doors (or in this case, tent flaps) to Final Harvest this weekend! Indeed, it is great to be in the house of LORD and we are especially thankful these days for ALL of those opportunities! Thanks again to all who came out!

Hello Everyone,

This is Scott Evans, the webmaster for Final Harvest. Like every other artist in Southern Gospel Music, Final Harvest has had their share of cancellations since the outbreak of the COVID 19 virus. Unfortunately, I missed one of those cancellations while maintaining the schedule on the website! The Kirkhaven concert on yesterday’s announcement was canceled. However, as of right now, the outdoor event at Oak Orchard Assembly of God is still on!

I apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused.

Scott Evans
