First Ever Live Webcast of Pentecost Prayer Service From Jerusalem

/PRNewswire/ -- As Christians around the world once again turn their eyes toward Jerusalem during this year's Pentecost celebrations, IPrayTV will offer a virtual pilgrimage to those unable to attend in person. The event begins at 9:30 am, 11:30am and 7:30 pm on Friday, May 29th with continued coverage at the same time on Saturday May 30th. IPrayTV will deliver a live streaming video feed of the special holiday services in which Christians from around the world will congregate at the Prayer Tent, by the famous Seven Arches Hotel on Jerusalem's Mount of Olives. This feed will be available from their web site,, free to all viewers.

Pentecost is celebrated by Christians annually 50 days after Easter, as Christian believers mark the decent of the Holy Spirit upon the apostles. This day is also widely regarded as the birthday of the Church itself.

"Naturally it would be ideal if we could bring each and every believer to experience the Holy Land in person, but at least we now have the technology to bring them closer," said Mike Peros, Founder and CEO of IPrayTV. "Viewers in all parts of the world have been logging in year-round to strengthen their personal connection with these sites. It has been very rewarding to see that so many people share this desire and that they have been able to turn to IPrayTV on holidays and year-round as a meaningful spiritual resource."

IPrayTV is dedicated to linking ministries to Jerusalem and the Holy sites through its simulcast technology. Through the company's new video streaming technology, Christian pastors and ministries will be able to virtually connect to these Holy Land sites and deliver their sermons and biblical teaching.

Bill Gaither describes the motivation behind this new release, stating, "Over the years, the Oak Ridge Boys have taken gospel music into places I, and most other gospel artists, would have never been invited.

This celebration of their gospel journey was more than just a fun opportunity to hear their gospel favorites ... it was about honoring their deep commitment to their gospel roots. I applaud that; and through this DVD I believe countless listeners will enjoy seeing four hearts that truly beat for music with a message."

Oak Ridge Boy, Joe Bonsall, also comments, "This is the most exciting time I've ever experienced with the Oak Ridge Boys. I can remember sitting and watching Gaither Homecoming videos on television and being so blessed. Then on my 50th birthday, we were invited to sit in the audience for the Cathedrals Farewell Celebration and I couldn't believe it ... and when we were called to the stage to sing, I thought I'd died and gone to heaven! Now, more than 10 years after that video was released, we consider Bill and Gloria and many of our other heroes to be friends. Being in their studio, standing in the places where so many legends have stood, to create a video documenting our gospel journey was definitely a full-circle moment for the Oak Ridge Boys."

The Oak Ridge Boys: A Gospel Journey is distributed by EMI and is available in stores everywhere.

He went on to work with and write for Betty Burnes Lee, The True Praise Youth Chorale, Savannah State University's Wesleyan Gospel Choir and New Mercies Christian Church of Lilburn, Georgia. Korey was the Assistant Minister of Music at New Mercies Christian Church where he was directly responsible for Youth Worship and Arts as well as the band.

He devotes his time to enriching the development of high school students at Carver School of the Arts as the Music Technology and Audio Recording Instructor. His musical mission for songwriting is to create music that intrigues the ear to listen, lyrics that challenge the mind to think and evokes the true spirit that causes the heart to change!
