MOUNT VERNON—Brewton-Parker College recently hosted national-touring performance ministry group The Jeremiah People for two performances on the Mount Vernon campus. The six-member ensemble performed skits about family situations during the Oct. 16 chapel service, and later that evening, performed a full-length Broadway-style musical called “Family Snaps”.

While at the college, members of The Jeremiah People were housed by host families from among BPC’s faculty and staff.


According to their website,, The Jeremiah People have wowed audiences for nearly 30 years with their unique style of music, laughter and drama. In their years of ministry service they have brought hard-hitting gospel presentations to millions, healing to families, inspiration to youth, and loving hearts to elderly. The Jeremiah People perform in churches, theaters, and auditoriums in nearly 45 states in the nine months that they are commissioned.

The mission of The Jeremiah People is to inspire the church, energize the family and challenge believers and non-believers alike with the message of Hope found in Jesus Christ. With their Broadway-style full-length musicals, humorous sketches, professional choreography, and powerful voices, The Jeremiah People truly present a professional, life-changing performance.


Brewton-Parker College is the only accredited four-year Christian college in south Georgia.
