Faith Sound is a unique organization that ministers to young people, their families, the community of Harlan, and the many places they visit each year. In its 41 years of existence, it has positively affected countless lives reaching much further then Shelby County. Providing an opportunity to perform as part of a professional touring group, it links young people together through music and shared faith. Each year, students grow as friends, musicians, and Christians.

Faith Sound is a visual display of the values of the community of Harlan. It utilizes music to praise God and minister to both audiences and performers. I am happy to serve as part of the leadership of Faith Sound.
