feel that God has called me to proclaim the Gospel through
songs to as many that will hear it,” says Jim. In a
recent decision to go out on his own as a soloist, Jim
expressed his excitement about what God has in store.
Jim Mahalick, formerly known
as the baritone singer for the well received mixed group the
Hoskins Family, has felt God calling him into a new Ministry.
His love for Gospel Music, along with his love for Christ has
given him an urge to reach as many souls as he can. Now the
Jim Mahalick that you remember with the Hoskins Family has not
really changed that much, other than the fact that he will
touring with a live band. Jim has deep roots in Southern
Gospel, and plans to always make southern Gospel songs part of
his program. His brand new solo release, “New Hope
Road” is more of a progressive Country Christian project.
This blend of southern Gospel and Country, seems to work well
Over the past 5 years while
touring with the Hoskins Family Jim has learned that a
Ministry like this is serious stuff. “I am amazed the
amount of people that you can reach in one years time,”
Jim says. Jim also explains that his five year experience on
the road with the Hoskins Family has been completely awesome!
With 6 Dove Award nominations, numerous Number One Hits, and a
2005 Male Vocalist of the year nomination Jim says, “It
was a dream come true for me.” Jim went on to explain
that all of our lives have seasons, and that he was thankful
for the season that he was able to spend with the Hoskins
Family. Jim has performed twice on the main stage of the
Annual Dove Awards, National Quartet Convention, multiple
Gaither Homecoming concerts, Dollywood, and Branson’s Silver
Dollar City. Also he has been invited to perform at INSP
television, Trinity Broadcasting Network, Daystar Network, and
Gospel Music television.
Jim makes his home in
Chicago, IL where most of his family is from. His father,
pastor of Free Christian Assembly in Chicago has been one of
Jim’s greatest influences. Jim takes an active roll in the
home church when he can, by leading worship for the services.
“I always want to be apart of my home church,” Jim
explains. He went on to say that you can give and give, but
there comes a time when a Preacher, Singer, or Evangelist
needs to also be fed by the Spirit!
So you ask, when will I see
Jim on the road again? Will he be traveling with a group? Jim
will be back on the road touring this coming spring. Look for
Jim and his Band to be coming to a city near you! Keep Jim in
your prayers as he travels into a new season of Ministry. He
is very excited about this call that God has given him.
