Evergreen 3 is comprised of dedicated Christians whose desire is to serve Jesus Christ through the ministry of music. They specialize in Southern Gospel music, and blend timeless hymns of old with some of the newest songs written today. Woven throughout the songs are Bible verses, personal testimonies, and inspirational stories that enhance the message of the music. Although Evergreen 3 hopes that you are thoroughly entertained by their performance, their purpose is not so much to entertain as it is to encourage Christians in their spiritual walk and to introduce unbelievers to Christ.

“I wanted to send a note… to say thank you for the outstanding concert you guys put on.  God was lifted on high and that’s what it is all about!  Thank you Brian also for the opening remarks about laying denominations aside…there are no pre-requisites.  God looks at a man’s heart and not the church he attends.  Keep preaching that message!  May God continue to bless your ministry."

-Camp Director John Q.
