Second Coming Ministries was formed out of a servant’s heart and love for Gospel Music. The name Second Coming is taken from the Bible, 1 Thessalonians 4:16-18, “For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God :and the dead in Christ shall rise first: Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord. Wherefore comfort one another with these words."
Ministries was added to Second Coming because it is a ministry, not just a Gospel singing group.
Since 1994, the Griffin, Georgia based group has traveled with a full band filling over 70 dates a year. SCM has never called to pick up dates, they pray and ask God to open doors for them and put them where they need to be and the phone rings.
The best word to describe the Independent Label Recording Group would be “Original”. They have their own songs, play their own music and have their own style. In 2011 the Southeastern Southern Gospel Music Fans voted Second Coming Band as "Live Band of the Year" and Second Coming was in the Top 5 for Trio of the Year and Donna Hannah-Boswell for Songwriter of the Year. In 2012 the SESGMC voted SCM as "Live Band of the Year" and Donna top 5 for "Favorite Female Gospel Singer."
Personal friend and Gospel Music recording artist Karen Peck Gooch has this special message about SCM, “Vernon & Donna have been special friends of ours for several years. They are very dedicated and sincere about spreading the Gospel through their music. Through Donna’s songwriting, they have a unique and genuine country style. They are a blessing to me and my family. I pray God will continue to use them to bless others.”
SCM started on this journey not knowing what would lie ahead, with no thought of ever turning back or quitting. They have kept a standard in the ministry along with their personal lives.
“We believe that God calls us according to His word to live a standard. We hold each other accountable, not to our word, but God’s. We were once sinners, imperfect people, saved by the precious blood of Jesus Christ. I wrote a song on one of our projects (Looking for Him), Find Me Faithful, it is each members' heart prayer that God will find us faithful”, states group founder/member, Donna Hannah-Boswell.
Second Coming Ministries counts it an honor to have multi-award winning musician and personal friend, Steve “ Rabbit” Easter to sit in on several dates a year on steel and dobro. “Rabbit” has encouraged SCM to “keep it live”. Donna adds, “that is a two fold statement, to keep the music live and the anointing live.”
SCM believes you will witness just that in their concerts. What you witness on stage is real. It is the anointing that sets them apart and it is the anointing of the Holy Spirit that is changing lives during their performances.
SCM is thankful that God is not looking for a perfect performance, but a willing heart that is surrendered to Him. They are all using their God-given talents to the glory and honor of the ONE that gave them these talents!
Donna continues to say, “We know it is God working on our behalf to have our music played on enLighten radio and radio stations across the world. Rooted, Anchored and Secure is the song that has been selected by radio from the project, Looking for Him. God has allowed us to be a featured artist in the Gospel Music News, our music rated by the Singing News Magazine, a featured group on the Atlanta Live TV program, Gospel Now TV and interviewed by various radio and TV stations. We continue to stand amazed at His work in our lives and ministry.”
To date SCM has four recording projects from Our House Recording,
“Original”, “Loving What We Do”, “Looking For Him” and “RATIFY!”.
Group manager and husband to Donna, Vernon Boswell adds, “We are having the time of our life. We should rename our bus from Maddie to Laughter---we do laugh and have a good time. We are enjoying our salvation and ministry. If a Christian can not laugh and cut up—who can?
We are the ones that have something to look forward to. The world today is looking for all kind of things to fill the void in their life and that void is Jesus Christ. We laugh and cut up, but we take the ministry very seriously. We have witnessed souls saved, miracles and healings in our services. That is what it is all about, lives changing for eternity.”
"AMAZING GRACE , HOW SWEET THE SOUND THAT SAVED A WRETCH LIKE ME" WE ARE THE WRETCH THE SONG TALKS ABOUT
We thank all the churches and promoters that continue to book us year after year.
We thank our family and friends that support us.
Most of all we thank God for His grace and mercy and for giving us a song to sing. May HE FIND US FAITHFUL as we are still LOOKING FOR HIM!
