The Mississippi Singing Churchmen is a men’s choir, comprised of ministers of music from Baptist churches in Mississippi. The Churchmen began in 1965 under the leadership of the late Dan Hall, director of the Worship Ministries Department for Mississippi Baptists (1964-1986). In 1971 the Churchmen elected officers and organized their operations for outreach, missions, and ministry. Dr. Milfred Valentine has been directing the Churchmen since 1982.

The Mississippi Singing Churchmen have been praising God and sharing their witness since their inception. They have sung their testimony throughout Mississippi and in mission trips around the United States and the world. Stateside mission trips include Illinois, Colorado, Maryland, Delaware and Washington DC. Their overseas missions have taken them to Brazil, Columbia, Venezuela, Spain, France, Germany, Argentina, Uruguay, Korea, Russia, Ukraine, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Peru and Chile. They are committed to “Sharing the Song of Jesus” wherever they have opportunity.
