In May of 2004, in answer to God's call on his life, Matt Rankin of Georgetown, Ohio started a journey to find men of kindred spirits and equal yoking to partner with him in a mission to fulfill that calling by evangelizing God's word through song. Now, in 2013, Matt's calling and dream have been realized in Soul'd Out Quartet. Soul'd Out Quartet, which is comprised of Dusty Barrett (tenor), Bryan Hutson (lead), Matt Rankin (baritone), Ian Owens (bass), and Michael Howard (pianist), is not only a vocal group continuing the heritage of Southern Gospel music, but is also and foremost a ministry team answering God's call as stated in Ephesians: He gave some apostles, and some prophets, and some evangelists, and some pastors, and teachers; for the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ. (Ephesians 4:11-13 KJV) In this spirit, Soul'd Out Quartet travels the country with a mission of evangelism and discipleship to not only win souls for Christ by telling the world "what the world doesn't know", but also to further strengthen and encourage God's people to be the salt and light to the world and ambassadors for Christ, that we are each called to be and to exhort God's people to be servants with hearts on fire!
Hello! May I introduce myself and my family? My name is Mrs. Judith Montgomery, a Southern Gospel singer from Shoals, Indiana. This is my 20th year as a Professional Singer. Those who have known me since I started my ministry, or have met me along the way, now know that I am no longer a soloist. My family travels with me, and my daughter Megan, age 21, now sings with me. Graham, my 14 year old son, sings lead on a few songs now with Megan and I backing him up. Justin, our 6 year old son, cannot sing yet, but loves music! We also like to add one instrumental to each concert if time permits. We attend an Independent Community Church in Shoals, IN when we are not out ministering. When we come to minister, we bring our own sound equipment and a professional sound engineer, my husband, Marold, to give you high quality concerts. Our ministry is scheduled on a Free Will love offering basis.
My whole family and I love traveling and singing for the Lord! Look at the States our ministry has had the privilege of ministering in: IN, MI, OH, KY, TN, FL, IL, WI, MO, NC, and SC. I have also had the privilege to sing at the Capitol Building in Indianapolis leading the song God Bless America for the House of Representatives. I have also made live TV performances on Channel 42 (TBN) out of Greenwood, Indiana.
Last year, we traveled over 11,000 miles ministering for God and booked over 150 dates. Mostly, we sing 45 minute concerts in Churches, gymnasiums, or outdoors and in November and December, we sing Christmas concerts. Additionally, we have sung for Revivals, Weddings, Banquets, Fairs, Funerals, and special occasions.
I have recorded fourteen albums, which are available in our store. Eleven of these albums are Southern Gospel Music! The other three are Christmas albums.
Look at what God has done for me and my ministry!
