Group Seeking Immediate Replacement

CLERMONT, Fla. – Florida-based family group Faithful Crossings is saddened to announce the departure of vocalist Lisa Nielsen.  Lisa is stepping down to focus on her family life.

“I have enjoyed my time with Faithful Crossings immensely. Tammy and Curtis have been so supportive of me with the difficult decisions I have had to make, and I would greatly appreciate any prayers for my family and myself,” mentioned Lisa.  “Anyone should be honored to accept a position with this group. Their hearts are truly in this ministry.”

Tammy Sumner of Faithful Crossings said, “Lisa was a good addition to our group.  She had a spunky, sweet attitude that made people love her, and she would stop what she was doing at any given moment to pray with someone who needed prayer; her heart was truly to minister and to give of herself to others.  We already miss her and keep in touch with her almost daily.”

With Lisa stepping down, Faithful Crossings is seeking an immediate replacement for her.

Faithful Crossings is seeking an individual, either male or female, who has an ear for intricate harmonies.  They are looking for either a very low alto or low tenor. Faithful Crossings travels mostly on the weekend but do travel all over the United States so some weekends are extended.  The group has regularly scheduled practice times, so individuals located in Central Florida are preferred.

Those seeking more information on the open position can visit Faithful Crossings’ website at http://www.faithfulcrossings.com . You can also visit their MySpace at http://www.myspace.com/faithfulcrossings.
