Traveling 70+ dates a year The Seed Sowers from Frankfort Ky. In 2020 all the musicians in our home church left. Morton Jr (Group leader) said to Morton Sr. (Pastor) “I’m not gonna go to a church with no music” so I picked up the Keyboard. In year one we stayed home and played at home. In 2021 we adventured out locally and did about 10 dates. Last year the Seed Sowers put 10,000 Miles on their Converted School Bus. 55 dates in 6 different states. This year SO FAR God has allowed us to book 70 dates in 11 different states. Members of the group are Morton McIntyre Jr, Raph Antone, Morton McIntyre Sr., and Mathew Riley. Our goal is by year 5 to be a full-time ministry! Don’t lose your wow!
