Todd-Mason team to Greensburg Christian

GREENSBURG – A one-night Todd-Mason Celebration Rally with Cecil Todd and Lowell Mason, from the Revival Fires Ministry, are scheduled to appear at 6 p.m. Sunday, July 6, at Greensburg Christian Church, according to Duncan Aker Jr., minister and coordinator for this special event.

The church is located at 1220 East CR 100 South. This service will mark the 60-year anniversary of Cecil Todd and Lowell Mason working together in Christian ministry.

This exciting evangelistic rally will be a “farewell tour” for Todd and Mason working together in revivals, rallies and city-wide crusades across America and in 22 countries around the world. This gospel team had a giant, area-wide tent crusade in Greensburg 47 years ago that attracted thousands.

Their farewell tour includes a stop at the Greensburg church because of the many great memories of their tent crusade in Greensburg in 1967, which was hosted by the church. It will be one of the last services that Mason and Todd will do together.

This area-wide rally will feature the old-fashioned Gospel singing of recording artist Lowell Mason, “the world’s smallest gospel singer.”

He is also now recognized in the 2013 edition of the Guinness Book of World Records as “the oldest living little person” in the world. Mr. Mason is only 46 inches tall. He began traveling with Dr. Todd as his gospel soloist in 1954. Between the two of them, they have been involved in Christian ministry for more than 130 years.

“Dr. Todd is one of America’s most powerful voices for God and country, and he has promised to bring a red-hot message on the theme, ‘Wake-Up America, Land That We Love,’” said Host Pastor Aker Jr.

Todd is best known as founder and president of the worldwide ministry of Revival Fires and as the only man in the world to preach to more than a million people on Moscow’s Red Square for Russia’s first May Day celebration, after the fall of the “Iron Curtain.” This May Day speaking appointment by Dr. Todd was called by Charisma Magazine “one of the top 10 events in the religious world” for 1992.
