I had the opportunity to get to the 15th Anniversary Singing for Glorybound Quartet at the First Baptist Church, Canton, GA. Their special guest for the evening was The LeFevre Quartet.

Robert Reese is the founder and manager of Glorybound. He and his wife Linda actually started 29 years ago doing a program for the area called White Christmas. It provides a special Christmas for the less fortunate children in Cherokee County.  They would bring in special artists to perform at the event. Then Robert and Linda got the idea of forming a group and doing the benefit  themselves inorder

to provide more for the children. Thus, Glorybound Quartet was formed, a Southern Gospel group which includes baritone Gary Courington, lead vocalist Brad Cox and tenor Steven Evans. Their pianist is Andrew Jones.

Mike LeFevre of The LeFevre Quartet announces Jeremy Peace as new tenor. “We are thrilled to have Jeremy Peace serving in the tenor position with the LeFevre Quartet. Jeremy has an impressive history in Southern Gospel music. His sincere heart for ministry and powerful tenor voice make him a wonderful addition to The LeFevre Quartet.”

Jeremy stated, “It’s a privilege to now stand on stage with one of my heroes, Mike LeFevre, ministering in song and delivering the Word of God when the opportunity arises. My wife and I were immediately at peace with the decision to join the ministry of LeFevre Quartet. We realized this was the door the Lord had opened for us to walk through, enabling me to minister to a lost and hurting world. My passion has always been great quartet singing, and after singing with Mike and his quartet, I’ve quickly
discovered they are a group full of talented, humble personalities with a drive to be the very best they can be to further the message and the music. I’m honored to be a part of such an amazing group!”

Thomas Nalley resigned the position, due to a medical condition. Since that time, Thomas has completely recovered, and is currently serving with the group in a non-singing capacity. Thomas commented, “While we don’t always understand why things happen the way they do, I am convinced that His ways are perfect!”

Please join us in welcoming Jeremy to LQ and in praising God for Thomas’ miracle!

Peace Family Ministries Formed

Written by Staff on June 8, 2015 – 1:37 pm -

By Robert York

 

Jeremy Peace formed Peace Family Ministries earlier this year. He states, “Peace Family Ministries sets out as missionaries to evangelize, preach, sing and teach the Gospel of Christ to a sin filled world, lost and without hope.” They conducted their first of several scheduled services in his hometown of Rome, GA on May 31.

image4Jeremy was born in Rome, GA. He professed salvation at age of six,  but as life went forward he realized he did not have a personal relationship with Christ. In July 2008 the Holy Spirit enlightened him about who He was and August 24, 2008, he could no longer resist, so he accepted Christ as his Savor. During this time Jeremy had sung Gospel music with The Relations for a year and half and The Kingsmen for about three years. In 2007, he joined The Old Paths, met his wife Jennifer on the internet and married her June 13, 2008.
During his tour with The Old Paths he was part of four number one songs, “Battle Stand,” “God’s Great,” “Long Live The King” and “Love Them To Jesus.”

image2 (1)In 2013 he felt God calling him to preach and he started preaching. He continued to hear God speaking to him to go into full time ministry sharing the Gospel. Once again Jeremy kept resisting but he finally answered the call and has embarked on a full time ministry along with his wife Jennifer and pianist and vocalist Josh Townsend.

Jeremy states that his personal testimony is based upon the life he once lived as a sinner, the life he lived as one wrapped in bondage, and the renewed life he has been given to step out on faith with his family as an evangelist and singer.
Jeremy’s wife Jennifer is a speaker and vocalist with the group. She has previously sung with a ladies trio out of Ringgold, GA where they now make their home. Like Jeremy, she professed Christ at a young age only to realize she didn’t have a real relationship with Christ until August of 2009. After her marriage to Jeremy, they experienced a lot of hardships, losing two little ones through miscarriage, and having financial struggles. Today they have three children, Abigail, Rachel and Elizabeth.
image3Josh Townsend who serves as pianist and vocalist with the group was born into the world a twin, but his twin died during pregnancy due to a trauma his mother endured at the hands of an abusive husband. Josh was born with several physical problems and had a stroke. God had plans for Josh and he has been able to work through all his problems. He has a wonderful testimony he shares so others may see the wonderful power of the Lord.
Peace Family Ministries is ready to share the gospel with folks and are available to do conferences, revivals, retreats, worship services, concerts and can tailor the service to the needs of the people that will be attending. You can contact them on Facebook at Peace Family Ministries or on the internet at www.peacefamilyministries.org. They will be happy to talk with you schedule and arrange a service to fit your needs.

The song “Looking Out For You,” written by Gerald riversidebytheriverCrabb and produced by Jeremy Peace, landed on Patterson Promotion’s Compilation Disc, Volume 13.

Rhonda Frye, the group’s founder, is mostly known in the industry for her work with SGNScoops Magazine. “I have wanted to assemble a ladies group for a long time,” Rhonda offered. “I prayed to find talented vocalists with great hearts. I have been blessed with young ladies that can communicate the gospel effectively in song, in testimony and by example.” Rhonda continued, “I also prayed for a great song to record that would be up-beat and that would carry a strong message.  ‘Looking Out For You’ was a perfect fit musically for our personalities and is a strong message we love to share.”

Rhonda Frye and Riverside vocalist, Lauren Huckabee is new to the industry, but has quickly gained attention for her unique voice and charming stage presence. Jennifer Peace rounds out the trio adding a touch of vocal clarity and sweetness to the mix and brings a transparent sense of sincerity to the stage.

Since the group’s formation in August, 2013, Rhonda Frye and Riverside has performed in various churches and venues including the National Quartet Convention- EHA Showcase, the Veranda at College Heights Baptist Church, and were featured at the 2013 Diamond Awards. During the Diamond Awards performance, the ladies were joined on stage by the songwriter, Gerald Crabb. “I was blown away when I heard my song, ‘Looking Out For You’ by Rhonda Frye and Riverside,” commented Gerald Crabb. “It is great. This new trio is very good. You’re going to love their music and their spirit.”

With a fresh new sound, the future for Riverside looks bright. Producer Jeremy Peace explained, “There are so many new exciting artists that are arriving onto the scene in Gospel music and this one is certainly no exception. What a golden opportunity for these three women to begin their ministry within the Southern Gospel genre of music as it begins to experience a revival. Riverside has the tools and heart to fulfill their calling and I’m honored to be a part of it. Their new radio single is only the beginning of a long successful ministry in music. These girls bring it!”

The new single was shipped to radio in January and has been received well. “We are very proud at Patterson Promotions that Rhonda Frye and Riverside chose us for their national radio single,” Pauline Patterson stated. “They are young, talented and ready to do a BIG work for Jesus. Rhonda Frye is one of the sweetest, most sincere ladies I know in this industry. She loves God and His people.”
