Buddy & Ina Gore believes that music is one of the few things in life that can cross all boundaries. For nearly 36 years, "Making a Joyful noise unto the Lord," and presenting the Gospel in song and testimony to the concert attendee is a number one priority. Also, having sensitivity to the needs of the Church, gives them the ability to minister in all denominations as they show respect to the members and their mode of worship. Christ is the focal point of Buddy and Ina’s ministry with the message that, in Christ, there is hope for the hopeless, forgiveness for the un-forgiven, peace in the midst of the storm and salvation for the lost. And even though their style of music has changed from Southern to a more Country style, and the name is changing to “Buddy and Ina Gore” , the group has changed from a full band to a duo - their message of their music has not changed!
The ongoing purpose is to make Christian music concerts available to any church, any size. Many small churches cannot afford to bring in a national, full time group, but still have a need for Christian concerts for their member’s enjoyment and uplifting. Buddy and Ina feel this is a part of their ministry - to go into the highways and byways bringing the message of hope of God’s love, grace and forgiveness that leads people to be saved.
