Here we are headed out on the Norwegian Epic for our Feb. 3-10 gospel cruise with Magnify Ministries. Met and made friends with several other great gospel artists and were able to share the Good News with many fine people, some of whom just wandered into our venues! Praise God!
Our current lead singer, Melissa Miles, and her husband are moving to Florida in early 2018 and we are now holding open auditions for a new lead singer. The good news is that Redeem the Time has already gone through the effort of developing and acquiring a repertoire, written arrangements, website, and sound equipment, and has developed a reputation for quality harmony singing and performance skills. The new person, however, will be an equal partner with joint decision-making, so we expect to change a bit to utilize the talents of the new lead singer. If interested, please click on the "Auditions Open" tab.
We were very pleased to be able to sing July 7 at a benefit concert for Life Centers. Other artists performing at this concert were The Sinclairs, The McQueens, His Voice Through Us, and singer/songwriter Linda Biery (solo artist from Pennsylvania). All artists contributed their talents and the total love offering was given to Life Centers.
We had our new CD project shipped directly to our hotel at the recent IGMA Convention, and it arrived on the very day we were to perform! Here we are unloading our first box of CDs -- all smiles! If you'd like to order one, click on the "Store" tab and we'll be sure to get one to you! ($15 postage paid)
We are excited! Redeem the Time has been selected by Magnify Ministries as one of a select group of gospel artists for their 2018 Evangelistic Gospel Cruise aboard the Norwegian Cruise Ship "Epic." The dates of the cruise are February 3-10, 2018, leaving out of Port Canaveral, with ports of call at the private island of Great Stirrup Cay; Ocho Rios, Jamaica; George Town, Grand Cayman: and Cozumel, Mexico! Rates are very favorable and you can check out the details by clicking on the brochure below. We'd love to have as many of our friends come along with us as possible!
At the Indiana State Gospel Music Convention, Redeem the Time Trio was named the Convention's "Favorite Trio!" Seventeen gospel artists gathered in Columbus, Indiana, July 15 & 16 to celebrate and promote gospel music in Indiana. Headliner Freedom Quartet from Knoxville, TN, also acted as clinicians, giving constructive comments to all regional artists. They voted Redeem the Time their "Favorite Trio" of the Convention, noting its tight harmonies and professionalism. The Trio is honored to have been recognized with this honor.

Rich Treptow takes office as President of the Indiana Gospel Music Association (IGMA) in January 2016 for a two-year term! "It's an incredible honor and responsibility," says Rich. IGMA promotes the gospel of Christ by encouraging gospel music ministries. Rich's goals are to help make the IGMA into a truly state-wide organization through programs that not only benefit gospel musicians, but also that reach out to those whose lives may be touched by the message carried through gospel music.
Redeem the Time loves singing Southern Gospel Music in Indiana. And there is no better place to sing it than at the Indiana Gospel Music Association's annual Christmas banquet and party at Third Phase. Melissa, Rich, and Linda Sue (L-R) wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Blessed New Year!
Redeem the Time wants to share what is on our hearts, and we also want to interact with you. Feel free to comment. We'd love to hear from you!
