In 1989 A.G. and Kate began a prison ministry in England and since that time their ministry has led them to around 110 prison concerts each year. The Buinings have released 3 mini LPs, 13 LPs, 23 cassettes, and 14 CDs. They have also published several books with collections of Wesley Hymns, and conduct a weekly radio program in West Virginia and Virginia.
