SUNDAY NIGHT PERFORMANCE by AVALON


When you hear of the Christian music ministry called AVALON you may think of one or more of their number one hits like: “Adonai”, “Can’t Live a Day” or “Testify to Love” to name a few. However, there is much more to this dynamic vocal foursome than meets the eye.

Their desire is to deliver a message of hope and ultimate love, freely offered from Jesus Christ, and to blatantly declare their devotion to Him through the words of every song they sing.

This three time Grammy Nominated, American Music Award and Dove Award winning Christian artist is composed of two married couples; Greg and Janna Long and Jeremi and Amy Richardson.

Work alongside other churches and partners to serve Petersburg and reach people with the Good News through ministry events.
Life Changing Backpack Collection • Share the Gospel and a gift of love with a child in need this Christmas.
As a Great Commission coalition, we plant, strengthen, and mobilize churches.
