Florida-based family group Faithful Crossings is pleased to announce that the group has reached an exclusive management and booking agreement with Arnie Shipp of AWS Management, Inc.
Arnie Shipp has been promoting and managing artists since 1992. He gained his experience while working in the mainstream music world – including working with such artists as KISS and Willie Nelson. After God allowed Arnie to walk again (after a complicated reconstructive back surgery), he committed his life to promoting and working with artists in the Gospel and Christian music field.
AWS Management takes pride in booking some of the best groups in Southern Gospel music for their Gospel Fest events, utilizing the talents of such beloved artists as Gold City, Brian Free & Assurance, Michael English, the Crabb Family, Mark Lowry, Squire Parsons, and others.
Faithful Crossings will be featured in the 2009/2010 AWS Gospel Fest concert lineups.
Tammy Sumner of Faithful Crossings said, “We are excited about what God is doing in our ministry and through the guidance of Arnie Shipp and AWS Management, Inc.
AWS Gospel Fest also hosts an annual "Gospel Cruise Fest," and Faithful Crossings is also pleased to announce that they will be part of the 2010 cruise lineup along with over 15 additional artists including Aaron & Amanda Crabb, Crabb Revival, Ed Crawford & the Mystery Men, the Jay Stone Singers, and more.

“We are so excited to be added to their concert lineup!” said Tammy Sumner of Faithful Crossing.
Faithful Crossings began as a family group formed by husband and wife team Curtis & Tammy Sumner along with their two children, Taylor & Lauren. Over the years, the ministry has grown to include bass singer Al Mercer and alto Lisa Nielsen. Since the group’s inception in 2006, they have been privileged to be booked with some of today’s best loved artists such as Gold City, Michael English, Mark Lowry, Three Bridges, Squire Parsons, Ann Downing, and many more. This dynamic vocal group has a unique sound that is a blend of progressive Southern Gospel with a country/bluegrass edge. Their music is new and fresh and reaches both young and old alike.
