Free Grace Wesleyan Church
140 Old Ferry Dock Rd. Harkers Island, NC 8531
Pastor Clint Nelson
The Nelsons are based out of Harkers Island, NC
Group was formed in 1972 after the conversion of Clinton Nelson out of a Rock Ďn Roll band which was organized in the mid 60ís. Although this band was very successful with the signing of a major recording label out of New York yet God had other plans in store.
The original Nelsons consisted of Clinton and Joy Nelson along with mom Nelson Reva Pearl. These three traveled extensively doing evangelistic work throughout the eastern half of the US.
After a few years Mom Nelson went home to be with the Lord and Derek Guthrie, Clintonís nephew joined the group as baritone singer. Today he one of the finest male vocalist anywhere. Keith Moore, Jr. a long time friend and native of Harkers Island joined the group in 1990 and is still singing tenor with The Nelsons.
The Nelsons are original in every sense of the word. Much of the material they sing is written by Clinton Nelson. Their singing style is basically southern in nature with a progressive flare. Their close family harmony and spirit and burden for lost souls are what this group is all about.
Their goal is to share the gospel message of Jesus Christ to a lost and dying world. This is what brings pleasure to their hearts.
Clinton is pastor of the Free Grace Wesleyan Church on Harkers Island, NC. This is the church he grew up in and loves to this day.
Understanding what church is all about and itís many challenges, they endeavor to present their message in song and testimony in such a way that will bring glory and honor to God.
