On Saturday November 11, a free concert in the Wesley Sanctuary will begin at 6pm by East Texas gospel artist Miles Pike. Miles tours nationally and internationally, preaching and performing original country-gospel songs for small and large audiences. Although he was born partially blind, he was greatly blessed with a five-octave vocal range and natural musical abilities. He has had five of his songs climb to #1 on the Country Gospel charts including “Don’t Unpack Your Bags” which is currently ranked #7. You will meet Miles and his wife Martha and have the opportunity to take some of his music home with you following the free concert.
