(BEAVER FALLS, Pa.) – New Song, a special music ministry at Geneva College, will minister to hundreds across the American Midwest in their 2019 summer tour from June 22 to July 22. Performing nearly 30 locations, the student ensemble will raise their melodic voices for God’s glory in 12 states, including Pennsylvania, Ohio, Illinois, Oklahoma, Kansas, Wyoming, Nebraska, Colorado, Iowa, Wisconsin, Michigan and Indiana.

In addition to the summer tour, New Song members sing a prelude at Geneva’s weekly Chapel service during the academic year. Students are chosen for the year-long membership based on gifts in dramatic presentation, musical abilities, and commitment and passion to serve Jesus Christ.

This year’s 10 New Song members are:

  • Lily Burgreen (Sophomore; Music)
  • James Lyu (2019 Graduate; Chemistry)
  • Kyle O’Keefe (Senior; Chemistry)
  • Grace Skarzynski (Senior; Business)
  • Joel Yoder (Junior; Engineering)
  • Elyn Snyder (Junior; History & English)
  • Jordan Kiesewetter (Junior; Music Education)
  • Matthew Munford (Senior; Mathematics Education)
  • Ariadne Lewis (Grad Senior; English with Secondary Education)
  • Annie Dawson (Senior; Communication & Music)

For 42 years, New Song has toured throughout the continental U.S., Canada and mainland China. Through their ministry, fellow believers have been encouraged and strengthened as they have proclaimed the gospel of Jesus Christ to thousands across the globe.

“It is really good to sing God’s praises in community, share the gospel as His instruments and encourage believers to worship our great God,” shares third-time member of New Song, Annie Dawson. “I love getting to participate in what the Lord is doing in people’s lives and am honored to be a part of the heritage of New Song.”
