Event Timeline

Saturday, September 30 & Sunday, October 1, 2023

2 PM

Building Tours

You'll tour the building with either Ben and Jayme, Taylor and Sam, or Leesha and Caleb. (If you had a tour last time and don’t want another one— you can just show up for the concert and fellowship!) You’ll visit the gym, locker rooms, our personal offices, and other fun places! Tours last about 15-20 minutes. When we hold events in the gym, much of what you’ll see won’t be accessible to the public.

3:30 PM

Concert in The Studio

You’ll get the unique opportunity of hearing a candid and personal "Night of Encouragement" in the very room where we practice and record our albums! People attend our concerts wanting good music and a fun time. Many walk away with the joy, comfort, or encouragement they needed. Experience God’s goodness and our family’s music in an intimate setting!

5 PM

Ice Cream Social

Fellowship is sweet at The Gospel Gym, but we're making it even sweeter at this Open House! Enjoy award-winning ice cream (made in Wisconsin!) after the concert. You can connect with like-minded people and visit with our family. Those who've attended the Open Houses say it feels like family getting together. And we want you to feel the same!

Doors close at 7 PM

— Josh V., Open House Attendee

"What an afternoon it was! I can’t wait to return with my groupies again someday soon!"

— Jane J., Open House Attendee

“I’ve been a Christian since 1976 and I prayed over this building (many times), for God to use it. Then you came!”

Meet your hosts

Hey there! We're David and Kris, Ben, Taylor, Leesha, Sam, Jayme, and Caleb— a fun-loving team of adventurers and musicians. For 15 years, we've toured America with live music, honest stories, and God's Word to love on people who need hope. Audiences say our concerts are like Branson but better. Fans of Southern Gospel, bluegrass, and inspirational love our acoustic Christian music. With over 15 instruments and eight vocalists, our music tells a clear message of God’s goodness when life is hard.

Our regular concerts—called Nights of Encouragement—are special, but none will be as candid and personal as our Open House at The Gospel Gym. We're thrilled to invite YOU to our home and music center!

Experience Our Music

We’re a tight-knit family from Arkansaw, Wisconsin who bands together for one reason: To encourage people. 

We'd love to encourage you! Join us on September 30 and October 1... and become #partofthefamily!
