After months of seeking God’s direction, The Southern Gospel Music Association is excited to announce an agreement with Biblical Times Theater for our location of the new SGMA Hall of Fame & Museum. It is located at 2391 Parkway in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee.
Arthur Rice, SGMA President, stated “We are excited and grateful to The Lord for the blessing of a new home for the SGMA. We have a lot of work ahead of us and the folks at Biblical Times have been an absolute joy to work with. We believe this joint venture will not only carry the history and future of our music but the message of Christ to many. Due to reconstruction and design of the new facility, we will be completing the hall of fame & museum in phases. Please pray for us during the next several months as we relocate to our new home."
The Biblical Times Dinner Theater is nestled in the hills of the Great Smoky Mountains. Located on the parkway in Pigeon Forge, it has been a staple for Christian Entertainment for over 10 years. Comprised of two halves, a live cast and stories straight from the Bible like the story of Ruth, the very pages of scripture are brought to life! Also equipped with a state-of-the-art projection mapping, the first half allows you to enjoy a high energy gospel concert while you feast on a three-course meal brought directly to your seat. When you leave, not only will your belly be physically full, but your heart will be spiritually full.
