Christian soloist to perform at Ponderosa Baptist Church

Ponderosa Baptist Church will be hosting a concert with Joni Killian at both the 9 a.m. and 10:30 a.m. services Sunday, July 15. "It is very rare I would give up a Sunday morning service for a musician," reports Dr. Joe Falkner, senior pastor of the church. "However, Joni Killian is one of the greatest Christian soloists of our time and the opportunity to have her minister here in Payson is a real privilege."
