HOW IT ALL BEGAN
I would like to introduce you to Paul’s Journey. We are a full time Gospel Music Ministry. We travel about 200 days a year nationwide. We want to present a program that is not only entertaining but uplifting to the soul as well. Wherever the Lord sends us, we go with these thoughts in mind: to lift up the name of Jesus, to see lost souls saved, and to see other Christians touched by God. The ministry of Paul’s Journey started over 38 years ago with four young men all related to each other. Of course, many faces have come and gone since that time, but the calling and commitment of the group has never changed. It’s been an honor all these years to have served our Lord and to help spread the word of Jesus Christ through song and testimony.
The group was voted SGM FanFair Favorite Male Quartet in 2007. They were awarded South Texas Association Group of the Year for 2001, 2004, 2007, and then again in 2014. The group was also nominated for Diamond Award as Group of the Year in 2004. They were also nominated for Horizon Group of the Year in 2012 and most recently were chosen by the Singing News southern gospel fans as one of the Top 5 Traditional Qts. in 2013, 2014 and 2015. The group has sung on the NQC Main Stage for the last five years. Our music can be heard on the radio and the internet all over the world. Paul’s Journey has been featured on Paul Heil’s Gospel Greats several times and Solid Gospel Radio. Thank you all for your support!
