Southern Faith

The beautiful Ozark Mountains of north central Arkansas, the breathtaking White River, and the majestic bluffs along its banks, all have something in common. They are home to Southern Faith.

Southern Faith is a dynamic trio with sharp, crisp harmonies and a pleasing array of both contemporary and traditional southern gospel sounds. Although they work hard to accomplish their musical goals, their focus is evangelistic in nature. “We can sing until your ears fall off,” Wade explains, “but if lives aren't changed, hearts aren't touched, and souls aren't saved, then we've accomplished little.”

The trio has been ministering for almost twenty years. It currently consists of owner/manager Wade Moser, his wife Taffy, and a life-long friend, Jerry Stowe. Together, they minister through word and song. While Wade not only pastors a church,  he also is the general manager and a southern gospel DJ for a local Christian radio station. Jerry is the production manager and contemporary Christian music DJ at the same radio station. Jerry's wife, Angie, manages their product table. Their lives are centered around sharing God's Word. When asked what is one of the greatest compliments ever given to you, they all answered, ''When someone tells us that our singing is anointed...that His presence was there and felt when we were singing and sharing His message.''

Keepers of the Faith returns to Riverview for the finale concert of the Gospel Sing.  Meet the new group (left to right):  Ace Taito, Zephanaia Taito, Lima Taito, Faalai Taito, and Peter Wainina.  

Keepers of the Faith is probably the most diverse Southern Gospel Quartet you'll ever meet or hear.  They love to serve God through their singing talents by bringing the deep south island flavor, a taste of oldie but goody, and the soul of saved men to the genre of Southern Gospel Quartet Music.  

KOTF have been in ministry for over 19 years.  The ministry started out as a prison ministry team who would visit brothers and sisters locked and shunned from society.  Their roots also consist of visiting hospitals and singing for every room that would want the uplifting of good old harmony singing.  The Keepers of the Faith Ministry sing, preach, and most importantly, live the Gospel of Jesus Christ.  It is their prayer and hope that you see the reflection of Christ within every aspect of their Ministry.
