Concerts From time to time Hagood has hosted concerts from local singers to big name artist. This began in 1993 when Scott brought the nationally known and dove award winning group "Truth" to Barnwell. The concert brought hundreds from across the state and many from Georgia. Also having done concerts have been Cornerstone, The Harvesters, The Ruppes, John Rutland, Stephen Rutland, and Don Sanders. In 2002 Hagood brought dove award nominee, Janet Paschal. In 2003, Tony Ellenburg (song writer for Stephen Curtis Chapman and Amy Grant) came to Hagood. One of the biggest endeavors was our 2003 Homecoming Music Event featuring over 25 musicians that reunited to usher in Hagood's 50th birthday. This event began at 6:00pm and twenty-eight songs and 3 hours later we all knew that this event would go down in Hagood history as one of the grandest music events. We've also had "LooseStone" in concert on several occasions, the latest being homecoming 2012. Our most recent concert was (dove award nominee group of the year) "33 Miles" & Harris III.
Media Ministry Media appears on our music page because the Music committee joined director Scott Brown in giving birth to this concept and vision to see it implemented. This ministry is not a new idea but a new era for our church. The desire to make the worship experience better through sound, video, lighting, and media. This will include dual screen projections for our worshippers to see, better home and shut-in ministry videos, and improved sound. The media concept is designed also to move all technical workers to one location area. Pray for us as we move in the direction of making these changes that will result in a better experience.
