Webbs Awarded Honorary Doctorate

During its 2012 commencement season, Laurel University enjoyed many firsts! Among these was the awarding of its first honorary Doctor of Fine Arts to longtime High Point residents, Rick and Phyllis Webb.

The Webb’s faithful 30-year contribution to full-time Christian music ministry deserves recognition.

Rick and Phyllis Webb met while singing with a 10-member vocal group ReGeneration in 1978. In 1983, the group became The Voices of Liberty, the host group for EPCOT Center’s American Pavilion.

After their marriage in 1982, the Webbs moved to High Point where they established a home and raised their three children. Currently, members and “Artists in Residence” of Green Street Baptist Church, they also contribute their time and talents at Laurel University as well.

Every year, Rick and Phyllis Webb perform close to 200 concerts with over 100,000 attending!

Rick and Phyllis have spent their entire personal lives and marriage together in Christian music, traveling nationally and internationally, ministering to people in churches large and small, in conventions, national events and civic functions. They’ve shared the platform with well-known personalities, including Willard Scott, Governor Mike Huckabee, Dr. Chuck Colson and Attorney-General John Ashcroft, plus Presidents Ronald Reagan and George Bush, Sr.

“ We are humbled and honored with this special recognition presented by a school so dearly loved by our family,” stated Rick Webb.

To celebrate their 30th anniversary the Webbs released a new DVD project “Live Across America” and “30th Anniversary Edition” through Song Garden Music Group.  Find out more about the Webb Family Singers at rickwebbfamilymusic.com.
