REV. JAMES COVINGTON & MEN OF PRAISE Gospel Starkville, Mississippi
East Stage 12:00 to 12:45
Men of Praise is a local gospel artist performing group that originates from Mt. Olivet Missionary Baptist Church in Starkville, Mississippi. The group got its start about 8 years ago when a group of guys in the church decided one night to put our musical talents together into a group effort and we formed what was originally known as the Mt. Olivet Praise Team.
Currently, the group only consists of members from Mt. Olivet Missionary Baptist Church, with the exception of one musician, Jarron Zuber, who plays the keyboard. Our current members are Alvin Jackson, Ivy Rice, Bill Harris, Rev. Leon Ferguson, Rev. Petro Jordan, and Pastor James Covington.
Men of Praise released its first and only CD/DVD live recording on December 12, 2010 in Starkville, Mississippi entitled Right Now Praise. We are still praising the risen Savior through the music ministry because He has done great things in our lives. "To God be the glory!!!"
