CHAPEL VALLEY’S ORDAINED MOURNS LOSS OF MEMBER, GLENDA HASTY

Ordained

Sharps Chapel, Tennessee – The Chapel Valley family extends its deepest condolences to the family members of Ordained and the family of Glenda Hasty. Glenda went to be with Jesus on Sunday afternoon, August 2, 2020 at 3:45pm.

ORDAINED MEMBER, GLENDA HASTY

Glenda Hasty

Glenda and her husband, Shelby Hasty, traveled the United States as The Hastys for twenty-five years. Their daughters, Stacy Wilson and Catrina Headrick, traveled and sang with them. After being off the road due to health reasons, Glenda joined her daughter, Catrina Headrick and son-in-law, Greg Headrick in 2016 to sing with the group known as Ordained.

Shane Roark shared, “Our hearts are deeply saddened by the loss of such a precious lady. Glenda Hasty was a gifted vocalist with a heart that radiated her love for the Lord. Our thoughts and prayers are with Greg and Catrina as they carry out the ministry of Ordained and keep singing, just as Glenda would have encouraged them to.”

We are thankful to know we will be reunited in heaven with so many who are already with Jesus. Philippians 1:21 says, “For to me, to live is Christ and to die is gain.” Though we grieve the loss of precious saints, we celebrate the memories we have. Heaven just gets sweeter every day!

SOJOURNER QUARTET CELEBRATES 25 YEARS OF MINISTRY

Written by Staff on February 16, 2018 – 8:24 am -

Sojourner Quartet

Sojourner Quartet

Findlay, OH – It all began in 1992, in a little town called Findlay Ohio, with founding member Mark May, who carries the legacy of Sojourner Quartet forward today. Originally a contemporary Christian band that played with live instruments, the group transitioned to a Southern Gospel music style with four-part harmonies when bass singer, Dave Barker, joined the group in 1995.

Sojourner Quartet recorded their first full Southern Gospel project, “On the Rock” at the Gaither Studios in 1997 and the rest is history.

Today’s members are Isaac Steinhour singing tenor, Jeff McGlade singing lead, Mark May singing baritone, and Larry Counterman way down low, singing bass. With 13 albums on the books, many charting songs, and several award nominations, Sojourner Quartet has good reason for celebrating 25 years of making music together across the United States and into Canada. “More important than any worldly success, we have been able to experience lives touched and hearts changed through the message in our music,” said group founder, Mark May.

There is a special story behind their tenor’s miracle birth, and his father penned a song they often sing. “We sing a song called, ‘He Still Does Miracles,’ written by my dad, and it has led us to some amazing people with incredible miracle stories. Through it all, we are excited and thankful that we can see God glorified as we share our ministry wherever He leads us.” shared Isaac Steinhour.

A very special 25th Anniversary album was recently recorded on Chapel Valley’s Church House label and will be released soon.

Follow them on Facebook or visit their brand-new website here to learn more about concerts near you and other news about Sojourner Quartet.

Richard shared from his heart, “Many from the Gospel music industry attended the celebration party. We are honored to call them friends. A major part of the event was to recognize those that are behind-the-scenes. The musicians are sometimes forgotten, however, we know that without them our albums would not be the same. It was neat to have them come forward individually and receive a plaque recognizing their amazing, God-given talents.”

The Hyssongs’ previous radio single “Let the Hallelujahs Ring,” written by Lee Black and Kenna Turner West, topped the SGNScoops’ Top 100 in July of 2017.

The Hyssongs have been singing together as a family for more than 21 years. They travel the United States and abroad sharing the Gospel, singing and playing their instruments for the glory of God.

“This was an unforgettable evening and a joy to spend it with so many friends. We appreciate them coming and celebrating our #1 song with us,” said Susan Hyssong. Congratulations to Dell, Susan, and Richard Hyssong!
