Mountain Statesman | Oldaker will complete the first round of summer Baptist services on Sunday


GRAFTON—Earlier this summer, the folks at First Baptist Church in Grafton came up with an exciting summer series that showcases a wide range of talent. After a successful season, the cult series will soon come to an end.

And because most Christians believe it is their duty to lead others to Christ, the church decided to call their event the Invite-A-Friend Summer Sunday Evening Worship Series.

Rounding out the summer of evenings of worship, Josh Oldaker will present a lineup of songs that are sure to help stir the Holy Spirit on Sunday, September 18.

Oldaker, who hails from the hills of West Virginia, aims to spread the word of God through his well-rounded country-gospel music repertoire. And with a high-energy performance and God-given talent, he was able to do just that.

What began as garage performances for friends and family at the ripe old age of four turned into a show that would help Oldaker share his love of the Lord with fans across the country.

With dedication and devotion to his cult, Oldaker was able to secure a nationwide tour titled Take care of me in the winter of 2009, taking it to 47 of the nation’s 50 states.

And without a major record label, booking agent or major sponsor, the artist relied solely on his faith in God that it would be possible and ended up with an experience that changed his life forever.

The country-gospel artist has compiled five albums, including his brand new work titled country rebirth, a collection of country gospel music at its finest.

His albums can be ordered via his website, josholdaker.comand through iTunes and Amazon, and his music can be found on YouTube.

“If you love old-fashioned fun and yearn for memories of your favorite anthems, this will be a performance you’re sure to treasure,” boasts its website.
