The Portsmouth Community Concerts presents its 85th season. Tickets available for individual shows for $25 each (adults) or get your tickets for the entire season for only $85
A Southern Gospel/Inspirational family known for staying together, praying together, and singing together will bring a certain degree of excitement, spiritual anointing, and musical excellence to the Churchland stage at Christmas. The group is The Collingsworth Family, headed by Phil and Kim
Collingsworth whose ministry has expanded and flourished into a full-time livelihood. Their actual base of ministry began during their college days. Phil is a 1986 graduate of God’s Bible School & College in Cincinnati,where Oswald Chambers (“My Utmost for His Highest”) taught. Phil also
completed professional trumpet studies at the College Conservatory of Music at the University of Cincinnati, earning a Bachelor of Sacred Music
degree with a double major in trumpet performance and music education.  Kim attended Union Bible College in Westfield, Indiana, where she was
instrumental in arranging much of the music performed by the college’s traveling music groups.  Phil and Kim have always maintained a public performance ministry and have held positions at numerous bible colleges around the country. In January 2000, they transitioned to a new, all-concert ministry and began recording professionally. They have four children, all of whom are actively involved in the ministry. Their two oldest daughters are quite proficient on the violin and perform at each of the family concerts. The entire family sings together in an ensemble. Kim is well-known for her phenomenal mastery of the piano while Phil performs trumpet solos.
In October 2019, The Collingsworth Family’s “A True Family Christmas” project was released, produced by Bradley Knight and StowTown Records.
One month later, the project claimed the No. 1 spot on a Billboard weekly Holiday Album Sales chart. In April 2021, The Collingsworth Family
signed a recording agreement with the Gaither Music Group in Nashville and joined the Gaither Gospel Hour’s internationally syndicated television
shows. They have appeared on many of Gaither’s Homecoming Series live concert events and at the Grand Ole Opry in Nashville, The Billy Graham
Library in Charlotte, and at their hometown studio in Alexandria, Indiana. Annual appearances include The Brooklyn Tabernacle in Brooklyn and The
Billy Graham Training Center in Asheville, North Carolina. Their ministry is featured regularly on the gospel music-syndicated radio program, The
Gospel Greats with Rodney Baucom. Their music is regularly featured on XM/Sirius Satellite Radio’s Enlighten Channel 65, GMT (Gospel Music
Television), The DayStar Television Network, INSP, and each year at Christmas in prime-time specials on TBN (Trinity Broadcasting Network)
