It was an honor to sing and play at the funeral of one of our all-time favorite pastors, Tab Scarborough. Thank you, Gloria. You and the family are in our prayers. Your husband meant a great deal to our whole family. These are two of our favorite photos of him with Daddy!
Our family had the honor of being a part of Luke’s swearing in as a Laurens County councilman! God is so good!
In Luke’s words:
Today, I took a solemn oath and was officially sworn into office. Having my family surround me was an incredible blessing! The moment was so surreal and made me realize how privileged and honored I am to have this opportunity to serve and represent the great people of Laurens County.
After some research and inquiry, we believe that at 23 years old, I am likely the youngest person to ever be elected to public office in Laurens County history. This achievement is not about me, but rather how the Lord has directed my steps this past year. He is the one to whom I give all the praise, glory, and honor!
As I serve my four-year term, I will always represent the PEOPLE. I will always strive to do what’s right, and not just what is socially attractive. I vow to defend the Constitution and preserve Liberty for this generation and the ones that will follow. God will be my guide, and Freedom will be my voice!
To our county, state, & nation – Let Freedom Ring!
– Councilman Luke Rankin
We had a great time at your New Year’s Eve service! Thank you for inviting us to sing and play along with Brothers 5. They were really good! We weren’t expecting a meal afterwards—and it REALLY hit the spot! You were so friendly to our family, and we loved the fun atmosphere. We will pray for your pastor, Fred Quindley, and his wife, Patsy, as they start a new chapter of their lives. We could tell they are very loved by your congregation.
Thank you all for coming! We all had a blast spending the evening with you and playing and singing our Christmas songs. This class is the BEST!!
Thank you, WTBI, for allowing us to share some music during your recent Share-a-Thon. We loved it! As always, you have a knack for making us feel right at home, and we praise the Lord for your faithfulness to His Word and for not compromising with the world. May our Lord richly bless you all, your church, and your radio ministry.
Keep looking up,

Today we gathered at the historic downtown Laurens Courthouse and prayed over our country and the controversial election. What a great time of prayer with several pastors from our local community, and our very own state rep. Stewart Jones. Thank you to the many people that came out to pray and show their support.
We had the opportunity to attend Burnsview Baptist Church for the BLEXIT Conference as well as listen to Erik Corcoran speak on Sunday morning there this past weekend. It was a refreshing time of unified patriotism with like-minded Christians. It was packed! We thank Burnsview’s pastor, Tim Huckaby, for his bold stand in the community! Erik Corcoran recently started a movement called SC-We The People which has already attracted thousands of South Carolinian patriots.
Thank you for inviting our family to sing and play a patriotic concert this past weekend! It was so good to be back in church praising the Lord in music as a family during these difficult times in America. God has blessed our country in so many ways, and we have so much for which to be thankful. You are doing so much good at your church. It was a blessing to see so many children!
Happy Independence Day from the Rankins!
We had a wonderful time at our Laurens “Back the Blue” event today! We appreciated all of the representatives who took time to come and speak at this rally. We thank our police department for all of their work and protection! And we thank our Sheriff Don Reynolds for his wonderful leadership in our county! It was an honor to be able to sing at the close of the rally.
