We are hosting our first conference! We hope you will join us for 5 days of fun, fellowship, and sanctification training!

Jared will be speaking on many different topics related to family, personal growth, and the good news of Christ. The goal of this conference is to encourage, equip, and connect God’s people.

East Mountain Bluegrass Band

Meet The Band

East Mountain Bluegrass began in 1994 with Art Mauldin, Mike & Julie Tucker serving at the HiWay 80 Rescue Mission in Longview, TX. The band has continued to serve every month on the third Monday for the past 29 years. Originating as an all bluegrass gospel band, East Mountain continues to sing gospel music along with bluegrass and familiar tunes, using acoustic instruments. Lynn Gray and Dennis Clute play regularly with the band and are joined by special guest Anthony Bonnette from time to time.

“East Mountain & Friends” (as well as Mike Tucker & Friends) became a popular Friday night event at The Gladewater Opry for over 20 years. With East Mountain being the host band, friends from all over the region as well as nationally, would round out a full evening of bluegrass and gospel music.
