As other opportunities came, the trio felt led to embark on their first Overflow recording in 2011, “All to Bring You Glory.” Since then, they have recorded 5 projects; their most recent release being “All Things Possible.” Each recording contains an eclectic mix of modern worship, gospel, and acapella music. No matter the style, Overflow has their heart set on lifting high the name of Jesus and sharing the true saving message of the Gospel.
Both families reside in Woodstock, GA where Cliff now serves as the Worship Pastor at First Baptist where the trio’s ministry began. Cliff and April have 4 children. Scott and Heather have 6 children! Both families include adopted children through foster care. It’s rare that they all travel together, but when they do they have their own family-grown choir!
“Cliff, April, and Heather are a gift to the Body of Christ. They are musically excellent, sincere, humble, and have hearts to serve and encourage others. Most importantly, their music is a true overflow of their lives as people deeply rooted and grounded in Christ. They will bless your church!”
Every Overflow event has its own unique feel and approach. You may find the group leading worship for a conference or worship service, doing a full concert, or joining together with choirs and orchestras for a worship concert. No matter the occasion, Cliff, April, and Heather are humbled and thrilled for every opportunity to represent Christ & minister through music.
