They are such an important part of the Branson Entertainment Community.
Their Sunday Morning Worship Service that began in 1992 has continued to be a source of inspiration to the thousands of Branson visitors who attend each year. Countless people say. “A trip to Branson is not complete without being with Barbara and Roy on Sunday Morning.” Their special Veteran’s Service, is so important to them, held during Branson’s Veteran’s Homecoming Week in November. They believe we owe more to our Veteran’s than we could ever repay and take every opportunity to let our nation’s heroes know how important they are. Barbara and Roy’s faith is their foundation and the most important aspect of their lives.
