The Crestmen Picture2

The Crestmen are a Southern Gospel Quartet from the heart of the beautiful Shenandoah Valley of Virginia. For over 40 years, The Crestmen have traveled across the nation spreading the love of Jesus Christ in song with "classic" southern gospel harmony.

The Crestmen's latest project "The Crestmen Take You Back" was recorded by Alive Studios in Harrisonburg, Virginia. These songs have been favorites over the years in many churches and concerts dating back to the early 1800s.

Following is the exert that our friend, Pastor Stan Ogden wrote for the project CD of Take You Back.

“When one has traveled as many roads, and gone the distance that Charlie Propst and the Crestmen have, there are lots of memories.  There have been sights appreciated, people encountered, tears drawn, laughter shared, and time consumed.  Through their music toes have tapped, hands have clapped, and praise has been given; not to the Crestmen, but to the LORD whom they all serve.  The message has been clear.  They sing and entertain to honor only one person: their Heavenly Father.  So listen prayerfully as they carry on their tradition of giving you the best Southern Gospel Music in the world.  “Come and Dine” on the best of the past that has pushed the Crestmen across the miles and filled hearts with melody for 40 years.  If you listen in the spirit of this production, your “old house” will be transformed into a “mansion over the hilltop”.  There is no doubt in my mind that you will be truly blessed with “showers of blessing”, and moved onto a highway that can only make you “travel on” into the wonder of “Canaan Land”.  So come on up and sit on the porch where we will listen and be blessed together with the best of gospel music’s past.

Thank you Crestmen for your faithfulness.”                   Pastor  Stan Ogden
