Let Your Anointing Fall
The Voices of Refuge, formerly known as the Refuge Youth Choir, The Voices of Refuge Radio Choir, and the Refuge Sanctuary Choir, was formed in 1969 in Alberta, VA by our pastor, Bishop Thurman Hargrove, Sr., under the direction of Brother Thurman Hargrove, Jr. Brother Hargrove served faithfully in this capacity until 1977. At which time, Sister Brenda Ebron, Sister Zelna Hargrove and Sister Germaine Pulley served as directresses until the Lord sent in Brother Joel Wyatt in 1980. Upon graduating from Saint Paul's College in 1984, Brother Wyatt handed the baton over to Minister William Gilliam who served as director until God called him into the ministry in 1986. Minister Immanuel Hargrove and Sister Debbie Hargrove served as director and directress until 2000. At which time Sister Zelna Hargrove-Tucker began serving as Chief Directress and Elder Immanuel Hargrove began serving as the Chief Musician. Through the years, many have come and gone. Some came, wrote beautiful melodies and left their mark for others to carry on. Some came and became members while completing their education at Saint Paul's College. We like to make mention of Sister Etta Malone who served on the choir as an alto until God called her home. The Voices of Refuge proudly minister with their pastor and overseer, Bishop Thurman Hargrove, Sr. in Warfield, VA at Refuge Temple Ministries and abroad. Our choir currently consists of five sopranos - Shamrae Coleman, Gale Morris, Linda Morris, Colby Rich and Jennifer Sydow; six altos - Ketana Bassett, Zelna Hargrove-Tucker, Angela Harris, Zanica Harris, Porsha Johnson, Elois Morris, and Tifani Parlor; eight tenors - Adam Henderson, Dwayne Morris, Sr., Dwayne Morris, Jr., Irvin Morris, John Morris, Kentrell Scruggs, Jamal Smith and Tywanda Smith; and seven musicians - Damien Hargrove (guitar), Immanuel Hargrove (organ and keyboard); Aaron Morris (organ and keyboard); Irvin Morris (lead drummer); Michael Harris (bass guitar and drums); Jamal Smith (congas); Khari Tassy (congas and guitar). To God be the glory for all the things He has done through us.
