Fairfield First Christian to host ‘AMEN’ tour

Ministry team Phil and Pam Morgan will give a free, fun and motivational multimedia presentation July 14
Jul 07, 2017

Husband and wife music ministry team from Kansas City, Missouri, Phil and Pam Morgan, will be at Fairfield First Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) at 7 p.m. July 14 for their “AMEN” Ministry Tour.

Their multimedia presentation combines close family harmony with accomplished instrumentals for what has been called a fun and motivational experience.

“People who went last year wished they had told their friends and relatives about it,” said Judith Hall, who helped organize the event. “They said, ‘if you have them here again, we’ll be there!’”

According to the ministry’s news release, the couple’s message is summed up in their signature song called, “Take a Stand.” The song is their triumphant theme, because due to a devastating automobile accident on June 4, 2000, Pam Morgan was told that she would never stand on her own — much less walk again.

Traveling 70 miles per hour, the couple’s van flipped after veering off the road. Morgan was thrown out of the back of the van onto the roadside. She sustained numerous injuries including a broken neck. She was left completely paralyzed from the chest down, and she was told that she would never feel or move most of her body again.

The couple immediately started a prayer chain from their ministry’s website, which soon circled the globe. Within one year, Pam Morgan progressed from being wheelchair bound, to walking unassisted.

According to the release, specialists have no explanation for her recovery. However, the Morgans attribute her healing to “the power of God.”

Exactly one year after the accident, the Morgans walked into a Nashville studio to record their album “Living Proof.”

Phil Morgan is an award-winning songwriter, and he composed all of the songs as well as many of the recordings that followed.

“When tragedy struck our family, God was the only one who got us through,” Pam Morgan said. “My prayer is that through our story and music, others will be motivated to walk with God everyday, no matter what life brings.”

The Morgans have told their story on “The Oprah Winfrey Show,” “The Montel Williams Show,” “The 700 Club” and a host of other television programs. Their music is broadcast on Christian radio stations across the globe. The Morgans’ 15-month account is published in Pam Morgan’s book, “I Stand.”

“Phil has an amazing gift of writing their personal journey of faith into music that relates to everyone,” the Rev. Mark Young said. “His lyrics speak truth and offer hope in a way that is truly impressive.”

Hall called the event a “celebration of God’s miracle-working power.”

The concert is free and open to the public.

Punch and cookies will be served in the church’s dining room after the event.
