Our Testimony

Appointed By Grace offers a unique mix of gospel music singing styles. God has gifted them as singers, songwriters, musicians and ministers. They have proven themselves to be dedicated to God and their families. Their ministry consists of powerful singing wrapped in the Word of God and seasoned with personal testimonies. Through the medium of song, they paint a portrait of hope for the lost, call the sinner to repentance, and encourage the Christian to service. 

Karla and Brent Burris

Karla grew up in a family of talented singers and musicians. She has taught Sunday school, AWANA, and ladies Bible studies in her home church. For over thirteen years, she performed weekly at the Liberty Opry. Singing there led to many opportunities for her to sing at community ceremonies, Senior Center programs, worship services and various church functions. Brent has served for many years as a deacon, Director of AWANA program and often runs sound for Appointed By Grace. He is a valuable part of the ABG sound team.
