“Recently we were blessed to have Root Road perform at a Salvation Army Women's' Camp in Kentucky. While John, Nathaniel and Anthony Gilkes were there to "perform," it was much more than a performance, it was a powerful and effective Spirit lead ministry. The age range of women at this event was 16 - 91 and the ministry of these young men reached each of them. Their music was excellent quality and very enjoyable. Their testimonies were real and sincere. Their interpersonal skills in connecting with the women at the conclusion of the evening were genuine and wonderful to witness. We look forward to future opportunities to include them in our planning.”
