Sweetwater Revival is thrilled to be featuring "The Old Paths" for their 2023 Hallelujah Homecoming Concert! Renown quartet, “The Old Paths” began it’s ministry in 2003, almost 20 years ago. Their name stems from Jeremiah 6:16 which says, "Thus saith the Lord, Stand ye in the ways, and see, and ask for The Old Paths, where is the good way, and walk therein, and ye shall find rest for your souls." With this vision in mind and along with a real heart for ministry, founding members Douglas Roark and Tim Rackley started The Old Paths. Signed with Crossroads Music's Sonlite Records, their album Right Now was a breakout project for them producing two #1 hits, "Battlestand" and "God's Great," within a six-month span. In 2013, they were named “Favorite New Quartet”, and songs like "Love Them to Jesus" and "Ordinary People" are well known fan favorites. The goal of their group has stayed the same after all these years - to see people come to know Jesus Christ as Savior and to encourage fellow believers! They feel thankful and blessed that they have the chance to sing and encourage others. They could not be more excited to see how God will continue to use them in the future for His honor and glory!
Sweetwater Revival, known as The Female Quartet of Southern Gospel Music, has traveled in Southern Gospel circles for 18+ years. With numerous award nominations, many songs consistently on the National Southern Gospel charts, and worldwide Radio play (in 140 countries), their ministry has successfully made it's mark in southern gospel music. In a genre packed with all male groups, these ladies have been nominated for "Female Group of the Year" Twelve times and have been blessed to be featured on Gospel Music Television. They consistently “sing a new song to the Lord” with an array of all original music and have shared the stage with renown Artists like the Grammy Nominated Talley Trio, The Perrys, The Whisnants, Greater Vision, The Mark Trammell Quartet, Lu Lu Roman, and Contemporary Christian Artist Ginny Owens!
It is rare to find women in four-part harmony. They are known for their heavenly blend and powerful vocals, but most importantly for their consistent presentation of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. While many in the business make it about jokes and entertainment, these women see concerts as precious time to share Jesus with a lost and dying world. Concerts are filled with moving testimony of what God has done and a consistent use of Scripture. They will be the first to tell you that their reason for coming together is to share the love and encouragement of Jesus Christ and most importantly the Gospel message. Come be a part of this exciting evening in southern gospel music at Trinity Evangelical Free Church when Sweetwater Revival and The Old Paths come together to lift up the Name of Jesus Christ!
