About the Musical Guest

Group PhotoDirected by Calvin Knipschild, Christian Edition is a men’s chorus based in Glendale, California. The group started in 1981 with 16 men presenting a song as a birthday gift to their pastor. The response to that one song was so great that what was supposed to be a one-time event has turned into a thirty-four-year musical ministry. The group has presented concerts across the United States including the Russell Senate Office Building in Washington D.C., Focus on the Family Headquarters in Colorado, The St. Louis Convention Center and Mt. Hermon Christian Conference Center in Santa Cruz, California. The group’s fourteen recordings are heard on Christian radio and television stations worldwide.


You’re invited to join one of our free seminars, offered on Friday afternoon, September 23, 2016. You can sign up for these sessions when you register for the convention.
