I recently had the opportunity to share a conference with The Akins. My, what a blessing this talented father and young men are! They play many instruments and sing beautifully. But, most important, they sing to the heart. We are in great need of musicians who are not only musically superior, but also spiritually sensitive. The Akins are both. If you ever have the opportunity, please hear them and use them in your meetings.

We were very blessed to host the Georgia Baptist Convention at Piedmont Church recently, and our people, in turn, were blessed by the great singing and playing of The Akins. Having known this family for 30 years, I can tell you that not only are they great musicians, they are also great people of integrity. Every generation in your church will find some part of their music to love. I am proud to call The Akins my friends!

There is a great need for biblical theology to be taught and preached in the church because solid doctrine is often lacking. The Akin Family music ministry offers to any pastor and church, conference and/or convention a great tune based upon the biblical text combining harmonious sound with profound substance. The heartbeat of the Akin family's musical ministry is exalting the Lord and his Christ through the power of the Holy Spirit. They bring to any congregation an authentic worship experience instead of a musical performance. I have shared with them in a worship context. Their singing has inspired and enhanced my sermonic offering. I highly recommend them with confidence and joy.

The Akin family has been a blessing to our family for more than 30 years and we have observed the boys as they have grown into very talented young men. We know The Akins as neighbors and friends and consider them to be one of the most promising gospel and instrumental groups in the Christian music industry today.

The Akins absolutely blew us away at the Georgia Baptist State Evangelism Conference! They are not only one of the most talented groups I have ever encountered, but they are also among the most spiritual. These guys genuinely love the Lord Jesus and it shows. It was such a blessing to get to know this family personally in the months leading up to the conference. The Akins are for real and I highly recommend this incredible group to you.

We invited The Akins to come and lead a Musical Revival at our church this past year. God moved in a mighty way! Over the next four days God greatly used this family and ministry to lead us in worship. And, each night the crowd grew in attendance, anticipation, and excitement. I'll never forget hearing several church members exclaiming to me that this was one of the best ministries we'd ever hosted at First Baptist Quitman. Throughout the week, my family had the opportunity to spend time with The Akins and their families and found them to be the same on stage and off. In short, they are each called and anointed to this ministry and it shows. May God richly bless them as they go forward and may you get them on your calendar soon! You'll be glad you did!

I am writing to let you know about a very unique family in our church. David Akin was called into music evangelism at Harp's Crossing nearly 25 years ago. David and his music ministry have been such a blessing to me and to Harp's Crossing. David and his wife Lagene have three sons, Dave, Nick, and Eli. As their sons grew older, they joined him in the ministry. All of the boys are now married and continue to serve in ministry. It is a "for real" family affair! I can vouch without reservation for their walk with the Lord. It was my privilege to counsel each of the boys along with their brides-to-be and it was my honor to perform their weddings.

The Akins are incredible in concert! They do all of their music live. They have written many of their songs and they also incorporate many of the old hymns that we all love to hear. All of the boys are very gifted and play various instruments. They appeal to people of all ages.

I believe that you will be blessed by The Akins. I hope you will take the time to check them out. There are many wonderful groups out there, but I believe you will find The Akins unique.

Senior Pastor at the Akins' Home Church | Harp's Crossing Baptist Church, Fayetteville, GA


It is my personal joy to recommend to you The Akins as an inspired, gifted, singing family marked with integrity and commitment to Jesus Christ. The Akins recently sang at our Evangelism Conference here in Georgia. What a blessing they were to all of us! We will certainly look forward to using them again. An important factor always in considering someone who will bring music for your event has to do with the spiritual depth of the group. Upon hearing The Akins, there is a profound and immediate comprehension that here are folks who love the Lord and who walk with Him closely throughout their ministry.

If you want to have musical worship that will long be remembered and that will inspire your people, I highly recommend that you consider inviting The Akins.

The Akins were wonderful in revival at Westside Baptist Church. God used them to tear down some walls that had been standing for a long time and desperately needed to crumble. We are still seeing the affects of their ministry weeks after they were here. The Akins are true men of God!

We were so blessed by how God used The Akins to encourage our congregation. Their combination of the new and the familiar offered something for everyone to connect with. Most of all, God used the music and the testimonies for His glory to minister to our church. Their family will be a blessing to yours!

Every now and then an artist comes along that you just know is appointed to move peoples hearts. Though it doesn't happen often, The Akins are one of those rare exceptions. Not only is their musical and writing talent inspiring, they perform it at the highest level of professional abilities. If you have the opportunity to experience The Akins, take advantage of it. You won't be sorry!

In a world where music is created by a computer and words can be empty cliches, The Akins are real.

Their music is refreshingly honest and unassuming, yet their acoustic skills are honed to fine art. Their melodies give you the feeling that you've heard The Akins forever, but you've never heard anything quite like them. Their lyrics take a familiar truth and deliver a powerful message with a wink at normality. Their hearts are evident in the words they sing. They want their stage to be an altar, their songs to speak to the soul and their audience to have a genuine encounter with God.

A broken world needs real compassion and honest truth. The Akins are a perfect fit.

Have you been praying that God would send a genuine, spirit-filled revival that would draw crowds of all ages; a revival that would not end just because the week is over?
I would like to introduce you to The Akins, an anointed ministry made up of a father and his three sons. The Akins have a special way of ministering to your people on stage and off with their musical talent and ministry-minded hearts. Their style of music has the unique ability to appeal to people of every age. During a revival, your people will genuinely be excited about a week filled with spirit-filled music and messages—excited enough to invite family and friends.

Off stage, the Akins seek to minister personally to the hearts of your members before, during, and after services. The Akins understand that ministry is not sparked by just entertaining from a stage. It's kindled over meals, in conversations, and in time spent with church members.

The Akins end every revival with a full length concert, drawing crowds that might not normally attend a regular church service. If you have almost given up on having revivals, consider giving The Akins a chance. Their unique music and message is a fresh take on an old tradition.

The Akins are impressive as musicians, vocalists, and songwriters yet I'm most impressed by their love for God and their fellow man. This love permeates their performances. Their concerts are entertaining. Their purpose of promoting the Good News is evident. Their connection with their audience is real.

I strongly endorse and encourage all my Pastor friends to use The Akins in concert. You will not be disappointed. Our people are still talking about the Sunday we had with The Akins at First Baptist Morristown , TN.

I thank God for the ministry of The Akins! Their passion for Jesus and their incredible gift for music are a dynamic combination. They are a great example of the difference Jesus makes in an entire family. Every time I've been with them, God has used them to impact my life!

Folks, if you have not had The Akins at your church, why wait? They were recently at our church for an outreach weekend. They led the music for our worship time and performed a concert on that Sunday evening. The question I've gotten most often from our people is, "When are they coming back?" Although they had never met our guest speaker, you would have thought they had been ministering together for years. The Akins are a great musical talent, but what I appreciated most was their genuine love for one another and for the body of Christ. I fully expect that the fruit of that weekend will be reaped for many months to come.

Without a doubt the Akin family has been raised up by God for such a time as this. We just had this sweet family for revival and our church has been truly blessed. Not only has God tremendously anointed their music, the messages were preached from the heart, straight from the word, and right on time. Brother Pastor, you will be so glad to have had The Akins. As wonderful as their music is, it is not what defines them. In one word it would be, Love. They will encourage your people, magnify Jesus, and plead for souls.

Senior Pastor
Victory Baptist Church, Milledgeville, GA


I would love to recommend to you my friends, The Akins, to minister at your church! David and his family have a heart for Jesus Christ and a ministry that truly ministers to all generations!

We have been blessed in knowing The Akins and have had them to minister at First Baptist Church Bushnell for the past several years. This family is not only gifted musically, but they are genuine, precious men of God who lead in meaningful worship. Please consider having them come to your church. They will be a blessing to you and your church family!

Have The Akins at your church this year and you will not regret it! We have worked together many times and they are among the most talented in ministry today!

The Akins are a family of very talented musicians who love the Lord and serve Him in song and in many other ways. If you or your church is looking for someone to encourage and bless your church family or to reach out to your community with the Gospel, I highly recommend The Akins ... they are the real thing.
