The CenturyMen, established in 1969, is an auditioned men’s chorus of professional Christian musicians who are church music leaders from across the United States. Annually, the chorus gathers to present concert tours across the United States. Their performances include churches and venues from coast to coast and border to border. In addition, the CenturyMen have taken numerous overseas concert tours and mission projects that have included performances in England, Wales, Scotland, Germany, Austria, Turkey, Spain, Portugal, Greece, Switzerland, Israel, Brazil, the People’s Republic of China, Russia, Poland, and the Czech Republic.
The CenturyMen produced thirteen recordings and have been featured on radio programs such as The Baptist Hour, and Sounds of The CenturyMen. The NBC Television Network has broadcast three CenturyMen programs, Sounds of The CenturyMen, Sunday in Galilee, and China: Walls and Bridges (Emmy Award). In 1988, the China Central Television (CCTV) produced and broadcasted throughout the People’s Republic of China, a ninety minute special of The CenturyMen in concert performing traditional hymns, spirituals, and American folk songs.
A very special moment saw the CenturyMen as performing artists at the 1999 Dove Awards telecast where they were recognized for their outstanding leadership and contribution to church music. The Christmas CD, “Beautiful Star”, was awarded a Grammy 2000 nomination. The CenturyMen’s 2001 East Coast tour included appearances at the United States Capitol, Washington DC’s Constitution Hall, and on the CBS Early Show; New York City appearances included the historic churches, Abyssinian Baptist Church and Riverside Church.
In 2002, the concert tour included the internationally telecasted Hour of Power from The Crystal Cathedral in Garden Grove, California, and the United States Air Force Academy. In 2016, the chorus travelled to Cuba presenting sacred concerts around the country and leading worship and music workshops in local Christian churches.
