Now approaching their fourteenth year of ministry and while they are still a relatively young ministry, the group have been blessed beyond measure to have been able to share our message in song with people all over the United States. They have been nominated for multiple Diamond Awards and have had the privilege of interviewing and performing on live radio and TV stations all over the US. Faithful Crossings has also performed multiple times at the National Quartet Convention, and have had the opportunity to share the stage with many of Gospel Music’s great singers.
The ministry of Faithful Crossings was started by husband and wife team, Tammy and Curtis Sumner back in 2006. After years of individual ministry, they believed that God was calling them to begin a new ministry, together, with their children. Tammy had been a member of the all-female Southern Gospel quartet, Sweetwater Revival and both Tammy and Curtis had been on worship teams for many years but a move from Minnesota to the foothills of east Tennessee gave them a new vision of ministry and that was where Faithful Crossings got its start. They prayed and sought a name that would express the heart of this new ministry and because God had always been faithful to them at each and every crossroads of their lives they chose the name “Faithful Crossings.”
In the early days, it was just Tammy, Curtis and their two children, Christian and Lauren. They soon cut their first CD titled “God’s Got a Plan” on the Church House Music record label and began to tour locally and in nearby states as well as making their debut at the National Quartet Convention.
