All Sons and Daughters at UAM MBSF (Sons Only) – Video – For Mother’s Day

May 12th, 2013 by

Monticello native David Leonard, along with the male members of All Sons and Daughters, recently led a worship service at the MBSF at UAM.

The group began forming in 2009, where they worship at Journey Church in Franklin, Tennessee.  Leslie Jordan of the group was not able to attend, so this was a unique event, even before you consider the personal ties that David has with Monticello.

The center was filled to capacity with students, alumni, and others who enjoyed the time of worship.
