Christian Edition
Directed 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 turned into a ministry that has now last more than 36 years. The group has presented concerts across the United States, including at the Russell Senate Office Building in Washington D.C., Focus on the Family Headquarters in Colorado, and the St. Louis Convention Center.
