This page includes some photos
that have appeared on our Current Information
to Donna Carlson of Shady Cove, Oregon. She was the Grand Prize
winner in The Gospel Greats program's 2011 Great Annual
Giveaway. She won Templeton Tours' Singing At Sea Cruise, February
13-18, 2012, where she'll hear roughly two dozen top Southern Gospel groups
provide the music during the cruise. She is seen above holding the winner's
certificate. With her is her husband, Jerry, who is holding the $1,000 check
the cash component of the Grand Prize. Ironically, the cruise comes
during their wedding anniversary, which is February 14th, Valentine's Day.
"We are really excited," she wrote.
The traditional radio station generating
the most entries in The Gospel Greats program's 2011 Great Annual
Giveaway was WDAC, Lancaster, Pennsylvania. In the photo above,
WDAC Program Director John Eby, left, accepts a "Certificate of
Exceptional Merit" from Paul Heil. The photo was taken on stage at a Garden
Spot Promotions concert which was, judging by the audience response,
well-attended by WDAC listeners.

Paul Heil was privileged to participate
on Sept. 26, 2007, in Family Life Network's 50th Anniversary Celebration
at their headquarters in Bath, New York. Family Life started as a youth
ministry founded half-a-century ago in Bath. Although that's still very much
a part of what they do, today Family Life has grown to include a sprawling
radio network with full-power radio stations and translators all over the
western half of New York state and across the northern half of Central
Pennsylvania. We're delighted that The Gospel Greats program can be
a part of their programming each weekend, and listener response has always
been exceptional. As part of a week-long series of evening concert events
celebrating the milestone, the Wednesday evening concert was by Greater
Vision. Paul was invited to introduce Greater Vision (seen doing so in
the photo at upper right) during the sold-out concert which was broadcast
live on FLN. Before the concert broadcast, Paul chatted on-air with their
morning crew, seen above, broadcasting from the rear of the auditorium (which
is part of the Family Life complex). They are (L-R) John Owens, Denny
Brownlee, Paul, and producer Tim McKeever. Congratulations to
founder Dick Snavely, director Rick Snavely and everyone involved
at FLN for a job well done through their faithfulness and obedience to God.

|Paul Heil was
privileged to be part of a history-making event in Washington, DC, on Nov.
27, 2006 the first-ever live Southern Gospel concert to be broadcast
on XM Radio, the nationwide satellite broadcaster. Johnathan
and Ginger Bond and their group, Young Harmony, sang in the
XM Performance Theater, presenting a one-hour concert. At a few points
during the concert, Paul briefly interviewed Johnathan about the group, their
testimony and their music. In the photo above, Paul can be seen at
his "announce" position. The photo at right shows Young Harmony singing
during the live broadcast. The photo below shows Paul and
Shelia Heil with representatives from XM (including Dan Dixon at
far left) as well as Young Harmony and their band. Visit

about repeat airings of this broadcast.
|Paul Heil, producer and host
of "The Gospel Greats" syndicated radio program, has been granted
an honorary Doctor of Humanities degree by Emmanuel Baptist University of
Connelly Springs, North Carolina. Dr. William B. Reynolds (above with
Paul), president of Emmanuel, conferred the degree during special ceremonies
June 16, 2006, at the Pentagon near Washington, DC. Several others were similarly
honored. The ceremonies took place during a special midday Gospel concert
in the Pentagon's center courtyard featuring Eddie Reynolds and Leviticus,
Stella Parton, the Jason Camp Family and others. "I deeply appreciate this
very special honor," Heil said in receiving the doctoral certificate. Heil's
earned degree is a B.A. in English from Elizabethtown College. Emmanual Baptist
University offers various courses of studies, including earned doctorates.
According to Dr. Reynolds, the school's goal is "to prepare Christian workers
to articulate the claims of the gospel of our dear Lord to our generation."
