Bob Colqhhoun is set to offer his personal testimony on Sunday, May 19, 2013 at St. Paul United Methodist Church at 501 Sycamore Street, La Porte City. He will tell his story through both words of witness and song at both the 8:30 and 11:00 AM church services.
Colquhoun graduated in 1980 from Washington High School in Cedar Rapids. He sang in the church choir, performed in plays and was a member of Fellowship of Christian Athletes. A varsity swimmer, he was offered two collegiate scholarships to swim, as well as a collegiate scholarship in music.
Instead, Colqhhoun moved to Florida where he become the lead singer in a rock band that was successful enough to open for Steppenwolf, Foghat, Molly Hatchet, Pat Travers, The Outlaws, and Blue Oyster Cult, to name a few.
In September of 1995, after relocating to Arizona and joining a new band, his arrest as a passenger in a stolen car resulted in being sentenced to 7½ years in prison.
Colqhhoun believes God has called him to share his story. The public is invited to attend his presentation on May 19, which has been described as “uplifting music” and “powerful testimony.”
