Wilson is best known for his hits "I Refuse" and "Before the Morning," both Top 5 radio singles, according to his manager, Chris Nichols.
Wilson will perform at 7 p.m. July 28 at the First Baptist Church of Perryville.
"You can pre-order tickets or pay at the door, but I recommend you pre-order," said Bonny Cail, secretary at the First Baptist Church. "They're going awfully fast."
Originally from Lubbock, Texas, Wilson now lives in Nashville and is signed with Sparrow Records/EMI-CMG. Wilson has toured full-time for the last four years, including tours with Steven Curtis Chapman, Matthew West and Sidewalk Prophets, all contemporary Christian artists.
Wilson's instrumental version of "Amazing Grace" is a popular moment in all his live shows, Nichols said.
"Most people have music in common, so Christian concerts are a great way to share that love for music along with a positive message," said Chris Smith, youth pastor at the First Baptist Church. "They're a very nonthreatening way to spread the message."
Smith said the church has previously hosted The Fallen, a local contemporary Christian band from Festus, Mo.; however, the Wilson concert will be the church's first big-name concert. All proceeds will go to International Crisis Aid Heartland, Smith said. ICA Heartland is a St. Louis-based, not-for-profit, Christian relief organization dedicated to ending human trafficking.
Smith said his wife is involved with the organization and said the organization seemed like a great place for the money to go to.
"It's a good cause in dire need of more support," Smith said.
Tickets cost $10 each and can be reserved either by phone at 573-547-4644 or online at fbcperryville.net.
