The Memphis United Methodist Church will be hosting a special guest on Sunday, August 6th.  Brent Vernon – singer, songwriter, and ventriloquist – will present a special program Sunday morning and then return in the evening for a concert at 6:00 p.m.

Brent, who is from South Florida, has been traveling for nearly thirteen years, presenting concerts in a myriad of venues including churches, schools, and coffee houses. Using songs, stories, and humor to communicate his faith, Brent has crisscrossed the United States countless times as well as performing in Ireland, Australia, Canada, and the Caribbean.

Brent is also the author and illustrator of the Audrey Amaka storybook series and, most recently, “The Gingerbrood”—an original take on the classic Gingerbread Man story.  He is currently working on his fifth children’s book.

In addition to an instrumental album, a children’s album, and a Christmas LP, Brent has released three studio albums.  According to Brent, his newest release, Hope & Hunger, is his most personal.  With songs of redemption, Brent encourages his listeners to passionately seek God’s Kingdom while resting in God’s faithfulness.

Brent’s career in the creative arts is full time.  With few exceptions, he performs 120-130 times each year.  Where it’s in a church, school, or at a special event, Brent welcomes every opportunity to share.

A love offering will be taken but absolutely no charge for this very special concert that is sure to entertain, encourage and inspire. UMC would like to invite everyone to join them Sunday, August 6th, and stay for a time of fellowship and finger foods following the 6:00 p.m. concert.
