About the position
ABOUT FAITHFUL CROSSINGS:
For years, Faithful Crossings has been known for their rich, family harmonies, original songs, and their powerful testimonies of God's great faithfulness. Their music spans the generations, touching hearts, both young and old.
Their current CD, "Farther Down the Road-Songs for the Journey," has had 3 consecutive charting songs and the title song, "Farther Down the Road," crossed over to #13 on the Singing News Bluegrass charts. They have been played and featured on radio stations across the country, have been played on the Nationally Syndicated Les Butler & Friends Bluegrass Gospel Radio Show and have sang on stage with many of Gospel Music's greats!
Faithful Crossings is made up of husband & wife team, Curtis & Tammy Sumner, with their daughter, Lauren Sumner, specializing in intricate harmony vocals from low alto to high soprano. Lauren has decided to step down from her position with Faithful Crossings to pursue her calling into Children's Ministry. She will be greatly missed but we know that God has a plan for her life and we're very proud of her decision to follow where she believes God is leading.

Vocalist must be available most weekends (Saturdays & Sundays) for concerts as well as some flexibility for longer trips a few times each year.
