PRLog - Jan. 6, 2012 - Greensbor, NC - On November 20th of 2011, Rocky and Gail Smith’s world changed forever when Rocky received the call that his two precious sons, Dylan and Zach, were murdered along with several other family members and family friend. All were under the age of 18. All were victims of Domestic Violence which is a terrible crisis in America today. While this terrible tragedy made national news, God was working on Rocky and Gail about what He would have them do next. For the days and weeks that followed, Rocky’s Faith in Jesus Christ truly began to show as his constant glowing smile (even through his tears) became a very uplifting sight for everyone that mourned the events of that tragic day.
Rocky began playing music at age 3, recorded his first album at age 7, and was traveling with the legendary Easter Brothers by age 10. Over the next several years he traveled the country with the Easter Brothers and is still considered a part of their family. Rocky has played with numerous regional and national gospel groups including Jeff & Sheri Easter, Yielded, Higher Power, Canaanland, and Calvary's Hill Quartet to name a few.. He has always been a very active musician, playing all types of music. What many people may not know about Rocky is that he is an ordained minister. Through this tragedy Rocky and Gail feel God guiding them to start Rocky Smith Ministries.
Rocky Smith Ministries will focus on inspiration through both song and motivational speaking on tough topics such as Domestic Violence, Mental Illness and the importance of being an Organ Donor, however the most important thing will be to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Already, God has begun providing venues and churches for Rocky and Gail to minister. He has also provided a website (www.rockysmithministries.com)
Rocky Smith Ministries will continue seek God’s guidance and direction and look forward to sharing their story of “Triumph Through Tragedy”. Please keep them in your prayers.
