Mark Hall, a 1995 graduate of The Baptist College of Florida (BCF) in Graceville, received four Dove Awards at the 39th Annual Gospel Music Association Awards ceremony held on April 23rd. He was presented awards for Song of the Year, Pop/Contemporary Recorded Song, Inspirational Recorded Song, and Special Event Album. Many BCF students are partial to Hall’s 2005 award winning song, Voice of Truth, which was written while he was a student.
In addition to being a BCF Alum, Hall serves as student pastor at Eagle’s Landing Baptist Church in McDonough, Georgia, and lead singer for the contemporary Christian band, Casting Crowns, which won Group of the Year for the fourth consecutive year. Casting Crowns’ album reached No. 2 on the Billboard Top 200 Albums.
"Mark Hall is representative of many BCF students who recognize God’s vision for their life and are persistent and hard working to fulfill that dream," stated BCF Worship & Music Division Chair, Don Odom. According to Odom, he is an excellent example of a student allowing God to use his talent and education in the Lord’s service.
The Dove Awards show will be playing multiple times on the Gospel Music Channel for all who missed the live broadcast and still desire to view the show.
