Sun City Grand church kicks off the holidays with gospel show

GOSPEL

Posted

Leon Patillo will kick off the holidays 10 a.m. Sunday, Dec. 5 at Grand Community Baptist Church, 18350 N. Goldwater Ridge Drive.

A love offering will be taken in support of his ongoing ministry.

When Patillo was singing with the Latin rock and roll group Santana, he would look out into the vast crowds of nameless, faceless people filling the auditorium—some coming just to party, some to be entertained, and some because it was the concert to attend. But some, Patillo felt, were coming with heavy hearts, questioning their lives and searching for answers.

At the height of his pop career with Santana, Patillo left the group with a desire to satisfy those hungering hearts with music that would make a difference in their lives. He began to sing the Gospel and lead people to Jesus.

Patillo travelled with the Get Motivated Seminars where he performed on stage with such personalities as Zig Ziglar, Mayor Rudy Giuliani, Laura Bush, Colin Powell and others.

In 2012, Patillo moved to Las Vegas and started a youth foundation called S.I.N.G. – Sowing Into Next Generation – whose goal is to bring positive inspiration to a mostly negatively influenced generation.

In 2016, Patillo launched Ready 2 Rise Children’s Network, which is designated primarily to Rise Above the Bullying Assemblies in middle and high schools. He continues to travel all over the country to inspire, encourage and bring joy to many people.

Call the church office at 623-975-6262, 8 a.m.-1 p.m. Monday-Thursday.
