The New Year

Weston & Christy Hinson, after much prayer and consideration and advice from friends, family, pastors and fellow artist, have decided not to hire any additional members at this time. Instead, the couple will retool and abandon the moniker “The Weston Hinson Group” and begin traveling as “Weston & Christy Hinson.” In the past couple of years, though their hearts and minds were always first on ministry, they desired to be a legitimate group with at least 3 parts… not only for that 3 part sound that so many love,  but also because duets are not as widely accepted by fans or in the Southern Gospel Community in general. Convinced that this recognition was paramount to success, and that it would assist in opening doors to minister to a greater audience…that was the route they chose.  Although they have had the privilege of singing with some very talented people and have had big opportunities, they found God seemed to move more in the settings where it was just Weston & Christy.  When asked what they thought could be the reason behind this, Christy says, “Maybe the fact that we know each other so well,  and when it’s just us, we focus less on the parts and focus on the hearts and we get out-of-the-way and let go and let God.” Don’t mistake their focus on hearts to be a lack of attention to their singing. While singing at their home church, Oasis Church, this last weekend in Caddo Mills, TX, people were applauding Weston & Christy’s talent and ability to blend so well with one another.  Everybody in the congregation, from the youth group to the jet setters were on their feet, cheering, clapping, and worshiping the Lord as the anointing was heavy in the building.  Weston & Christy say that, “God has put a stronger desire to go deeper with what God wants for our lives.”  They’re pastor, Barnie Huie, shared something invaluable with them and it really sunk in, “You go deeper in God and He will broaden your horizons.” “We’ve been focusing on widening our borders, our reach, our notoriety, and our agenda for too long now.  It’s time that we get back to focusing on deepening ourselves in God, his Kingdom, His Word, His love, and his agenda.  That’s what the gospel is about. We are putting the emphasis back on GOSPEL in Gospel Music.  It is what this country needs to hear and witness…something real,” Weston reflected as he and his wife came to this decision. It’s not to say Weston & Christy Hinson will never make additions to their group, but for now they say, “God has us where He wants us and we are glad to be here!” This is the beginning of something that God will surely bless! Weston & Christy Hinson are booking for 2012! Concert Venues, Homecomings, Revivals, Conferences, Campmeetings, Church Services and more!
