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!
Not too much was serious at the Geist Chapel Ladies' Tea! Redeem the Time lost the pitchpipe for an a cappella number and Melissa asked all the ladies to sing an "A." You can see the impact of that below! :-)
The Trio took some time off from Indiana Gospel Singing in the fall to see the changing of the leaves in Pennsylvania and were asked to sing at Colonial Hills Baptist Church. Pastor Bob is a wonderful preacher and also presented us with a nice remembrance of our performance - see photo below! Thanks, Pastor Bob!
Redeem the Time was privileged to visit Northern Minnesota in June 2015 for a wonderful series of concerts! We started off by enjoying wonderful hospitality of New Creation Lutheran Church in Perham, MN. Second was a full concert at the Lakes Area Community Center in Battle Lake, as part of their community artist series. Park Rapids Adventist Church sponsored both a concert and special dinner for the Trio! Last but not least, Life Church in Fergus Falls, MN, brought us in for a mini-concert, where the enthusiasm was off the charts! We would love a return trip to Minnesota in a year or two! For now, though, we are back singing Southern Gospel Music in Indiana!
Redeem the Time had a great time on Jan 21 singing with Joshua's Vision in New Castle, IN! They are three fun and talented individuals, and we are looking forward to singing with them again! Thanks, Andrea, Bryan, and Coy for inviting us to join you for this performance! Any time . . . !
This photo is from the Indiana Gospel Music Association's annual Christmas party held at Third Phase on December 5, 2014. IGMA is a collection of Indiana gospel artists (quartets, trios, duets, and soloists) who are are a great group of Christians dedicated to spreading the love of God through music. Linda Sue (left) and Melissa (right) show the joy that was in the room that night. It was so good to be with other artists for a relaxing evening of Christian fellowship!
