Triumphant Quartet to travel full-time
Triumphant Quartet announced that they will be leaving the Miracle Theater to travel full-time in 2008. Their announcement states:
Triumphant Quartet will be ministering on the road full-time starting in January 2008!!!! We are so excited about the new direction God is leading us.
Your love and support of Triumphant Quartet has been overwhelming in the past and your continued support is vital to the success of our future. You are more than fans, you are our friends. So in light of this, we need your prayers that God will continue to give us souls for our labor and that He will help us to be an encouragement to all we come in contact with.
Our schedule at The Miracle Theater will remain the same throughout 2007.
This could have both its advantages and its disadvantages for the group. Full-time road travel will bring them before more audiences–honestly, a good percentage of loyal Southern Gospel fans (including me) have never been to Pigeon Forge, and being before more audiences will get them more exposure in the Southern Gospel world (even as they will have a bit less outside it).
On the other hand, a theater gig is more conducive to maintaining a consistent lineup. My take: If they can hold the same personnel together for the next five years or so, they will be the most popular group in Southern Gospel, at least outside of the Gaither universe.
