Our Story

Jordan River was started in June of 2013. Based out of Lexington, S.C., we travel the southeast proclaiming that Jesus Christ is Lord through our testimonies, and through the greatest music this side of Heaven.... Southern Gospel Music!

We bring a long history and years of experience, as all of Jordan River has been singing since they were children. Each member of this ministry was raised by Christian parents, and were exposed to gospel music at very early ages. Now as grown men, not only in life, but more importantly in Christ, we seek to tell as many as we can about the love, mercy and grace of Jesus, and that through Him, you can be saved from an eternity in hell, and spend eternity with Him in Heaven.

We invite you to contact us for more information about Jordan River, and hope to see you at one of our concerts real soon! God bless
