Rick and Leta
A casual Gospel Music Center
in Kansas City KS
Welcome to our website for gospel music!
Come on in and join us for a casual evening listening to gospel music with singers from around the United States and bring your friends, and family too. Grab a burger from our food bar, or order one of our famous taco salads and sit back and relax and have an enjoyable evening. The doors are open every Saturday evening at 6:30pm. Show starts at 7:00 pm. We have changed our format somewhat and are now allowing singers to come and sign up to sing a couple of songs each with open mike every Saturday evening but don't worry; if you are not a singer we need you to come and listen too. You will enjoy our singers and musicians and will want to come back again when you are in the area. Admission is FREE! On holidays when you may be having family at your house, why don't you bring them here. There's no admission charge and you can sit around the table together and listen to some excellent gospel singers, sit back and enjoy the atmosphere and be blessed. The Glory Barn is one of the few places provided in the Kansas City area that provide all gospel music.
We need you to help keep this venue open. Our love offerings go to our guest performers and for upkeep on GB supplies needed. Check out our dates on our Events page and choose when you might one to come. We would love to have you!
Our sincere thanks,
Leta Mowen, GB Promoter

Did you know that Salvation brings peace with God?
"I no longer call you servants, ....but I call you friends."
Through Christ's sacrifice, our past is pardoned and our future secure.
And, "Since we have been made right with God by our faith, we have
peace with God" (Romans 5:1). Peace with God. What a happy
consequence of faith! Not just peace between countries, peace be
tween neighbors, or peace at home; salvation brings peace with God...
God is no longer a foe, but a friend. We are at peace with Him.
The Glory Barn is open every Saturday evening at 7:00 pm
for singers to come and play their instruments, sing, or be our guests
and sit back and/or listen to the music.
*See the Contact page if you are interested in singing as a
guest at the Glory Barn.

History of the Glory Barn:
Oct 2014: Pray for Rev Sammy Sampson. She has had two leg surgeries and has three months of recoopering at her home. This is very trying for her not be be out preaching or playing her saxophone.
Update on Rev Sampson Jan 13, 2015: Sammy has started using a walker and can walk a short distance using it. She is determined and I know will be up and be more active again soon! Thank you for your prayers for this dear lady and friend.
In September of 2008, the
Rev. Sammy Sampson retired
and handed over the reigns to
Rick Mowen after thirty
"Sammy" was the pastor of the church
for forty seven years.
We want to thank Rev. Sampson
for her many years of service to
this ministry and we are indebted
to her for her efforts. We caught the vision, her
vision and are keeping her wish with
all gospel music!
Our blessings to you and our love Sammy.

We offer a food bar, and an area for relaxing and eating, and listening to gospel music. Singers interested in singing may ask themselves, "I wonder what type of music they want?" (Refer to the "About Us" page)You may hear something that appeals to you that you really enjoy. I know that we can't please everyone all of the time but by offering to you a variety of music, you surely will hear something that you will like. If you are interested in singing at the Glory Barn, you may submit a copy of your group or solo work to Rick Mowen (director) or his wife Leta (Promoter) and one of them will contact you. Please fill out the information on our contact page. Please send your promotional information to:All music needs to glorify God and not the artist. We need to hear words of inspiration and encouragement that bring hope and are uplifting to people. If you sing but don't have any musicians to back you up, our Glory Barn band will be more than happy to help. Just give them a key that is comfortable for you and they will catch on quickly. It's our pleasure to offer gospel music at it's best to you.Sincerely, Rick, Director Leta, Promoter
