Kirk Preheim, founder and tenor singer
for Gospel Gold Quartet, passed away suddenly on March 4, 2013.
He is remembered by many for his positive attitude, his smile, and
his kindness. How he loved to tell a story and share how God was
working in his life. We cherish the memories and although we miss
him dearly, we know that he is resting safely in the arms of God. His
legacy lives on as Gospel Gold continues to sing and minister in
our Savior's name.

We sang for a Sunday morning worship
service recently where a four year old boy became quite enamored
with the quartet after they sang 'He Never Failed Me Yet'. He
turned to his Mom and asked, "You mean God has never failed
those guys?" To this small child it was quite unbelievable .
. . . and if God had never failed those men standing before
him, then God wouldn't fail him either! Unbelievable, yes . . .
yet we know this to be true.
When Moses knew he could no longer
lead the Israelites, he told Joshua:
"The Lord will lead you. He himself is with you. He
will not fail you or leave you." Deuteronomy
Later Joshua encouraged the people:
"You know that the Lord your God has not failed in any
of his promises. He has kept every promise that he has made to
us." Joshua 23:14b
And in the great commission Jesus tells his
"So go and make followers of all people in the world.
Baptize them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy
Spirit. Teach them to obey everything that I have told you to do. You
can be sure that I will be with you always. I will continue with
you until the end of time." Matthew
That is why we sing! That is why we
share the Good News of Jesus Christ! The message is simple enough
for the very young, profound enough for the educated, still
amazing to the very old and reassuring to all. The
unbelievable is now believable for God has never failed us yet!
