For over three decades Jamey Ragle has inspired audiences in small country churches and some of the largest arenas across America. Jamey began singing with the Dixie Melody Boys in the 1970’s, and soon began speaking and conducting Crusades, Conferences, and The Jamey Ragle Comedy Café. Jamey has been featured on TBN, PTL, and Living the Life. His passion for breaking down the age barrier and denominational walls has enabled him to share the stage with Chris Tomlin, Todd Agnew, Jeff Foxworthy, actor Steven Baldwin and many more. He has spoken for the United States Navy in Japan, at the Western States Quartet Convention in California, and in hundreds of churches. Jamey has recorded numerous music projects and signature messages such as “Have a Blast While You Last”, “Slaying the Dragon of Your Past”, and “Dear Dr. Phil”. Jamey continues to travel America passionately sharing the message of love, healing, and hope. Jamey’s hilarious comedic style of communication will uplift and inspire. Someone described Jamey as a mix between Larry the Cable Guy, Dr. Phil and Billy Graham. Dr. Falwell once said that hearing Jamey is like having open heart surgery, while being fully conscious, and enjoying every minute of it!
Jamey shares from his heart how we can take the journey from brokenness to wholeness and breathe in new joy. Jamey will inspire the listener to recognize the joy and freedom that is only experienced through a genuine God Encounter. Jamey will be bringing the message at Georgia Pastor’s School on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday.

Eric Copeland, Stephanie’s producer and President of Creative Soul Records says, “From the moment I heard her first song, I knew Stephanie had something as a songwriter. It was called “Moments of Grace”, and rarely do I hear that mature of a song from a new writer. Well, that was many years ago and I’ve watched Stephanie blossom into a successful artist and songwriter. With each album her passion for worship has only increased, as is evident by the growing church ministry she leads year after year.”
