Sojourner Quartet

Sojourner's first full Southern Gospel project On the Rock was recorded at Gaither Studios in 1997. Subsequently, the quartet recorded several CD projects and enjoyed a great deal of travel opportunities through 2010! In 2010, Dave Barker moved to his eternal home with Christ, leaving a void on the bass line and in the administration of the group. At this point, God directed Mark to veteran bass singer Larry Counterman of Indiana who joined the group in 2011. With Larry on board, Sojourner hit the road again. In 2012 Jeff McGlade stepped into the tenor spot, and the guys recorded their first project in six years God ’s Good ! The transition which has led to the current quartet dynamic occurred in 2014, when talented young tenor singer Isaac Steinhour was invited to join! Jeff moved down to the lead part and Isaac , a Findlay native in his final semester of college came in to fill the tenor position! Isaac also brought to the ministry gifts associated with vocal arrangement which have been vital to the sound on each project since then. Sojourner signed with Chapel Valley Records and released their first project Redemption on the Church House label in 2015. This project featured all original music. In fact, Isaac and Jeff ventured into songwriting with the songs He'll Be There and Glory In The Cross, respectively! Since Redemption, Sojurner has recorded two other CDs (A Quartet Christmas and Old and New) and a live DVD all with Chapel Valley. They have recently shared the stage with many industry greats including; Triumphant Quartet, Soul’d Out Quartet, The Talley Trio, The Collingsworth Family, and The Kings men. They had their first two radio releases This Good Way and "Unshakeable Rock" hit the Christian Voice charts! In 2017, they successfully completed their first tour into Canada where they ministered to thousands of people in Ontario. More importantly than their success, they have been able to experience lives touched and hearts changed through the message of their music. Their song He Still Does Miracles, a song that Isaac’s Dad wrote for him following his miracle birth, has led them to some amazing people with incredible miracle stories. Through it all, the guys are excited and thankful that they can see God glorified as they share their ministry across the world.
