Keepers of the Faith are made up of five vocalists who love to serve God with their talents of singing. The group consists of Lima Taito, Agaese Taito, Faalai Taito, Zephanaiah Taito, and Peter Wainaina. Keepers of the Faith is probably the most diverse southern gospel group you'll ever meet. That diversity is very evident in their unique style. Keepers of the Faith bring the deep south island flavor to the genre of southern gospel music. The Keepers of the Faith have been in ministry for over 19 years. The ministry as a whole started out as a prison ministry team that 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 now is a renowned gospel group who are touring and living to the standard of their name. The Keepers of the Faith sing, preach, and most importantly live the Gospel of the Jesus Christ. It is their prayer and hope that you see the reflection of Christ within every aspect of their ministry.

With ten acclaimed recordings to their credit, as well as numerous popular releases, including five Number One hits, Poet Voices has firmly established a place at the forefront of Christian Music. Since its formation in 1991, this popular group has gained the respect of its peers and Gospel Music supporters alike and continues to be one of Gospel Music's most beloved and impactful groups. Poet Voices consists of Phil Cross (lead), Nic Holland (tenor), Donny Henderson (baritone), and KC Armstrong (bass).

Phil Cross is one of the most prolific Christian music composers of the past three decades! He has dedicated most of his life to writing and sharing encouraging songs that come from a lifetime of encounters with God. Known as the "Songwriter of Songwriters," he is a master storyteller who connects with all ages to convey a vast array of musical styles and his genuine approach lifts up generations of people all over the world. Some of his songs include "Wedding Music”, "Champion of Love", “When I Get Carried Away", "Yes I Am" and many more.

The No Name Quartet has been intentionally flying under the radar as a music group for nearly 20 years. Although one of the best kept secrets in the region, they continue to delight audiences with their mix of gospel and inspirational music, onstage humor and blending vocals. 

The group started as a smaller version of the men’s ensemble at their local church. What was just getting together to sing for fun, grew into a highly requested quartet without ever selecting a name. This was until a concert promoter started referring to them as "the No Name Quartet". 

From a deeper standpoint regarding the group name, nnQ likes the connotation that it isn’t about us but about Him. He truly is the one worthy of all the praise. We stand with Peter in his message to the religious leaders in Acts 4:12: “Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to mankind by which we must be saved.” This is the Savior we love to sing about. May His name be glorified! Group members include Tim Yocum (tenor), Bob Jackson (lead), Jeff Secaur (baritone), and Mike Yocum (bass).

About EUMC's Concert Outreach Ministry Fund

We are gratefully accepting donations to the Concert Outreach Ministry Fund to enable EUMC to continue to offer concerts by nationally known artists on a regular basis.  The purpose of this ministry is multifold. It will serve as an outreach for the community, provide people who aren’t able to travel distances the opportunity to experience high caliber concerts locally, and most importantly help establish or strengthen their relationship with Christ.  

The costs of hosting the concerts can be expensive as these artists have high travel expenses and for many this is their only source of income for their families.   The Fund allows us to help outset the fees involved with hosting the concerts.  Many artists require a minimum honorarium amount, but our goal is to bring the concerts to you at the lowest cost possible.  

Donations made to the Concert Outreach Ministry Fund are eligible for receipts for charitable giving.
