Posted by painewebmaster | 10/17/2017 16:24 PM

Deonté Moses, founder of The Devoted Disciples, introduced a talent show to encourage students and the Augusta community to become more engaged with Paine College. Auditions for Who’s Got Talent? will be held for two days on the Paine College campus in Candler Memorial Library Banquet Hall on October 30th and October 31st, from 6:30 pm to 9:00 pm. Ten to twelve contestants will emerge as finalists. The actual talent show will take place in Gilbert-Lambuth Memorial Chapel on November 10th at 8pm.

Doors will open at 7:30 pm. The winner will take home a $200.00 cash prize and bragging rights for being the first to win top prize for the inaugural Who’s Got Talent competition at Paine College.

The Devoted Disciples’ mission is to provide an atmosphere and environment for young adults that will allow them to fellowship while being introduced to the word of God through Bible study sessions, literature, lectures and activities. Although he faced many obstacles, Deonte’ pursued his dream of introducing God’s word to millennials in creative ways that continue to capture and hold their attention. His perseverance paid high dividends. Already, Devoted Disciples has become one of the most influential and productive organizations on the campus. The organization has more than 30 active members who are committed to doing God’s work in the community.

 Deonté is no stranger to student leadership. He is the past-President for the Student Government Association and served as Student Representative on the Paine College Board of Trustees. He served as team captain and point guard for the Paine College Lions basketball team. Deonté believes that servant leadership is a calling and is defined by action. He is leading the Devoted Disciples with the same tenacity and drive as he implemented prior leadership roles.

 “I believe that this talent show has the potential of becoming the largest event that has ever occurred on the campus of Paine College. But in order for this to become a reality, we need all people from all different backgrounds and ethnicities to come together and support this initiative,” said Deonté. “My vision is that this talent show will have a large degree of community-wide involvement. All persons who have been blessed with God-given talents are invited to participate. Unity is far better for our community than division.”

This event will mark the first anniversary of a talent show that will have the potential of bridging the College with the community, one that will be etched into the history of the Institution along with the ministry he has created.  If you are interested in supporting Who’s Got Talent, please contact Deonte’ Moses at (443)-546-8525, or via email: Mosesdm2@paine.edu.
