The Watchmen acapella group is a male contemporary Christian acapella group comprised of Andrews University students. Their mission statement reads “The Lord is doing something new and urgent in this critical time that we live in. As we near the edge of earth’s history, The Watchmen have heard an urgent word from the Lord’s mouth and is devoted to warn the dying world with a message of hope.”
On Friday Oct. 27, the Watchmen acapella group will host a benefit concert in the Howard Performing Arts Center beginning at 7:30 p.m. The Honorable Treasures Benefit Concert will showcase Watchmen acapella and another eight musicians, soloists and groups including Deliverance Mass Choir, Makarios, Carlon & Heidi, Connection, Kaome, Jade, Abel and the LSF Trio.
Jephthah Ndlovu (senior, aviation), baritone and public relations manager, said, “I believe it is time to make Jesus go viral and Christ’s method alone is the main driving force behind the inception of the Honorable Treasures Benefit Concert.”
According to the official Watchmen Facebook page, “the concert theme is inspired by the Bible passage Matthew 6:19-21. It is only wise for us as Christians to channel our best abilities and resources to work for God so as to lay up our treasure in the safe box of Heaven.”
Tickets for the event are on sale for $5 (cash only) in the Andrews University Dining Services office between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. Part of the proceeds will support Homeless Shelter development.
Ndlovu said, “This venture completely embodies Watchmen’s motto, which is to deliver an urgent message to a cold world. Exhilaration is a faint description of my current emotions. I am honored to be a nail on which God’s portrait will hang as we praise His precious name on Oct. 27!”
