The Jacob Brothers of Dillsburg, Pa. will appear in concert at Jericho Independent Church on Friday, November 1 at 7 p.m. The church is located on Route 196 at Jericho Road south of Sterling.
For over 50 years, the Jacob Brothers have been dedicated to the ministry of spreading the Gospel through music. Since 1962 the group has travelled millions of miles, produced more than 50 albums, and hosted many international tours.
Presently the Jacob Brothers' weekly television program is seen on Direct TV and on WGCB-TV channel 49 in Red Lion, Pa. The Kings Kids' Camp, another branch of their ministry, provides a Christian camping experience for many underprivileged children each summer and also brings thousands of people to central Pennsylvania each July for a week of Gospel music.
The group is comprised of two brothers, Bob and Mike Jacobs, who are original members of the group that started in the small town of East Berlin, Pa. in 1962. The third member, Mike Lawyer, who joined the group in 1972, comes from McClure, Pa.
Although they specialize in traditional and sacred music, their approach to the Gospel is varied by using the diversified talents of the singers throughout the concert. The end result is a program which is appealing to all ages in the audience.
