Professor Owensby Releases Standup Comedy Recording
Youth and Student Ministries Professor Dr. Garland Owensby recently released a recording of his clean stand-up comedy routine. Though he has always incorporated humor in his teaching and preaching, Owensby started doing stand-up comedy in 2005 for a SAGU Senior banquet. He has performed in various venues since then. The CD is titled “GO Time” as a play on his initials.
“It has been a pleasure to be able to perform stand-up and bring some joy to people’s lives all over the country," Owensby commented. “To know that the experience can be enjoyed at home as well is exciting.” Owensby performed to over 4,000 students in churches and camps this past summer. The recording is available on iTunes, Amazon MP3, EMusic, Founders Bookstore in Waxahachie, or directly from his website.
Additionally, Owensby had the privilege of speaking at five youth camps this summer. Owensby ministered in New Mexico, Southern Idaho, North Texas, and Louisiana.
“One District Youth Director once said that camp is the most important youth event of the year," said Owensby. "It is an honor each time I am able to stand in front of students and communicate the truth of Scripture.” Multiple salvations, healings, Spirit baptisms and callings into vocational ministry were reported through the camps.
