Trinity & Friends

Performance: 4:00 PM

Trinity, Steve & Lisa Adams, and Jim Fader. 

Trinity has celebrated over 40 years of music ministry. This Van Wert, Ohio based gospel group was originally started by Gary Adams and began as a male trio. Over the 40 years it has been a male quartet, mixed quartet and finally the last 25 years it has been a mixed trio of Gary Adams, Cheryl Burk & Kim Mason. At 85 years old Gary could still soar up on those beautiful tenor notes that everyone loved to hear. In March of 2023, Gary joined Heaven’s Choir as God called him home. After much prayer, Trinity has decided to carry on the ministry Gary so faithfully served and continue singing as a duet. The duo is excited to see what God has in store as we continue to lift up His Word in song.

              Trinity is part of the Willowood Label and produced by Dove Award winning singer/songwriter/arranger John Darin Rowsey. John has produced Trinity’s last six recording projects. We were also blessed to have Roger Talley produce the group’s first four projects.

              Over the last several years the trio has had the privilege of taking the stage and singing God’s praises with some of the country’s leading gospel artists: The Talleys, The Hoppers, Greater Vision, The Booth Brothers, Mark Lowery, Dallas Holmes, Jeff & Sheri Easter, The Guardians, Karen Peck & New River, Triumphant Qt, The Imperials, Tribute Qt., Jeff & Sheri Easter, The Pfeifers and many others. God has also blessed us by allowing Trinity to take part in different showcases at the National Quartet Convention, minister on various Gospel Cruises, television and radio programs and tour throughout the country. Trinity has also hosted the Gospel Music Expo for the past 22years and is currently planning their 23nd Gospel Expo to be held on April 19, 20 & 21 at the Family Life Center/Trinity Friends Church in Van Wert. Trinity will also be setting sail aboard Carnival Freedom for “Jubilee in the Sun”. Sailing out of Port Canaveral Florida on Jan 13 for a 5 day cruise with stops in Grand Turk and Bimini.
