DEEP GAP, N.C. – (March 3, 2017) – Renowned Gospel singer Michael Combs recently celebrated 25 years as part of the ministry team for the annual revival at Blackrock Baptist Church in Yulee, Florida. In thanks for his time in ministry with the revival, the church presented Michael with a brand new Gibson Hummingbird Guitar on Sunday, January 22, 2017.
Blackrock Baptist Church reached out to Michael’s wife Denise, about how to honor Michael for his dedication to the annual revival.
Michael commented, “I am so amazed when God honors his soldiers for their faithfulness and allegiance to Him. What a blessing to sing and minister for the One who keeps filling my cup so I can drink from my saucer.”
Denise Combs shared this story of the generosity and heart for ministry that another couple, the Coker’s have for Michael Combs. “Many of you have heard Michael share at his concerts about the beginning years of Michael Combs Ministry. About the couple out of our home church in Jacksonville, FL that paid for Michael to record his first album ‘Never A Greater Love’ in 1990 in Nashville, TN. Not only did they pay for the recording but they paid all expenses there and back home for both us. Not to long ago Michael was performing and sharing that story and in the audience there they sat. Words cannot even explain what it meant to see them both worshiping the Lord while Michael was singing a song they paid for him to record.Warren and Rietta Coker, we can never tell you in words what you mean to us. Thank you all those years ago for investing in Michael Combs Ministries. You are part of every soul that is saved. We Love You Both!”
In other news, Combs’ first radio release “That Same Hand” from his latest album, I Can Trust Him, was selected by Paul Heil of The Gospel Greats as “The Listener Favorite Song” and was the introductory song for his program during the “All Listener Favorites” edition on the weekend on February 18, 2017.

About Michael Combs
After squandering many years living in the World and nearly destroying my life with drugs and alcohol, something wonderful happened in my life….or better yet SOMEONE wonderful happened to GIVE me life…His name is Jesus!
I gave my life to Christ on a Monday night during a revival meeting in Jacksonville, Florida. That night was February 6th, 1989.
Since that night many things have happened! Almost immediately God put me into a Ministry of Music! Never thought I would be doing what I’ve been doing for the last 25 years but now I can’t imagine myself doing anything else!
There have been some valleys. I was dying of Liver Disease when The Lord rescued me. However, God not only saved my soul and placed within me a new heart….he gave me a new Liver too! I had a Liver Transplant on September 9th, 1991 at The University of Nebraska Medical Center in Omaha, Nebraska.
The Lord has allowed me to write and record songs that some call “classics” today. Many are sung in local Churches on any given Sunday. Lots of folks tell me they hear my songs sung at numerous Gospel Music Talent Contests. (What an honor!)
I’ve been blessed to have traveled this country with my beautiful wife, Denise, for 25 years (and counting!). I not only get to share the songs….but my testimony as well! We have been blessed to see hundreds give their hearts to Jesus in our Services!
Maybe one day we will get the opportunity to share this Ministry of Song and Testimony with you and your people… with your Community……..with the Whole World!
