About the Singing Pastors of Piscataway:

It was not by circumstance that 18 years ago God placed in the township of Piscataway four talented Pastors who loved to sing God’s praises.

After performing separately at a concert, each realized the God had placed them in this part of his vineyard for such a time as this. This purpose was not only to preach and teach. But to sing and proclaim the Power of God through song. It was a beautiful thing to see___said the pastors. Since each of us had previously been a part of a quartet group we bonded immediately. We made plans to meet to find out if our schedules would even allow us time to even do this. Once we begin to make plans, God gave us the confirmation that His musical words would go forth. Thus, The Singing Pastors of Piscataway were organized in 1994. Realizing the effect that music has upon the molding of the mind and the lifting of the spirits, the Singing Pastors embarked upon a ministry to transforming the preached Word into the gospel song. Our mission is to spread the love of Jesus Christ and the witness His saving grace through the testimony of music. Their motto is ‘We are ordained to preach, but compelled to sing”

Over the years the Pastors have traveled extensively lifting the name of Jesus through song. Through the year some pastors retired and were replaced by God loving ministers of music caring the torch of the Singing Pastors.

Now as time has passed we are proud to announce the release of their 3rd album entitled “INSPIRED TO REACH HIGHER” They are excited about the release of this album and are prayerful that this effort will change lives and save souls.
