Soul Purpose, based out of Grove City, Ohio, offers a “one-of-a-kind” traditional southern gospel sound that awakens the spirit and excites the soul. Although their ministry began in 1972 as The Sounds of Joy, in 1995 they began a fresh start with the new name Soul Purpose. The name just seemed to be the perfect fit as they proclaim, “Your Soul is our Purpose!” It doesn’t take long to realize this group LOVES the Lord. From beginning to end, their program conveys the joy and excitement of having a relationship with Jesus.
Soul Purpose has carried the Gospel to numerous churches, fairs, conventions and arts festivals in Ohio and surrounding states including the National Quartet Convention, Ohio State Convention of Baptists, and Northern Gospel Singing Convention. Soul Purpose continues to be in demand and has appeared as the “Featured Group” on the popular television/internet program Gospel Music Today. Each of the members is honored to have been commissioned by the Governor and Secretary of State of Kentucky as “Kentucky Colonels” as well as having been honorably recognized by State of Ohio Governor, John R. Kasich, House Representative Cheryl Grossman, Speaker of the House William Batchelder, Congressman Steve Stivers, and Mayor of the City of Columbus, Michael Coleman for their service and dedication to the Ministry of Christ and gospel music in the communities they serve.
This group is not short on experience in gospel music. One thing for sure, this group can get a crowd excited about the Lord! Likewise, they bring the crowd to a time of worship, reflection and decision. Concert-goers continue to comment “this group’s sound compares to any group you would hear on the Gaither’s,” but they are “uniquely different” because they consistently present a program that couples immense talent with a “true ministry” message. Their goal is to deliver more than just entertainment to the crowd. They want to show JESUS!
Their “BRAND NEW” project BOUGHT WITH A PRICE is by far their BEST RELEASE yet, featuring many of their fan favorites…”We Will Worship the Lamb,” “In My Robe of White,” “If You Knew Him,” “Ten Thousand Angels,” and original song/title track “Bought With A Price.” Their albums incorporate some of those great old gospel songs sung by saints of the past as well as fantastic new releases to make you tap your toe or stand up and shout. Regardless of your age, they offer a great collection of gospel music you will want to hear and share with others!
