Four In The Fire
Four in the Fire is a young Christian music group based out of Indianapolis, Indiana. These four young men have a burden for ministry, and a passion for quality music.
The Dunaway family ministry started out 11 years ago traveling with a simple testimony of how God changed their lives. Most of the services would be filled with gospel singing. It wasn’t long before The Dunaways found the first radio audience for their music in 1996 on WEEZ Laurel MS. Three national releases followed. They were young in the Lord and in- experienced, but they did know that God was leading them into full time ministry and have followed every aspect of that calling ever since.
Since their ministry was mostly music oriented, it was a big surprise to the family one night when Brother Dunaway started to give his usual testimony. He opened his bible, and an hour or so later he had preached the glory down and the altars filled with hungry souls. Their ministry would never be the same again.
For a season, the singing faded into the background and God chose to use this family in a very different way than they expected. They currently pastor New Zion United Pentecostal Church in Philadelphia MS. They also own and operate The River of Life Christian Bookstore in Philadelphia.
After five long years of waiting, The Dunaways finished a new project with plans to make their music available to radio once again. Their very first opportunity came as a great confirmation that God was beginning to open new doors. The Dunaways were invited to be involved as the featured group on the syndicated network show” Front Porch Fellowship” hosted by Les Butler. A weekend show that airs via the Solid Gospel Network.
Their acceptance by radio also includes the continued exposure of their music by the Solid Gospel Radio

with rock, R&B, and other styles. In the late 80s, Billboard Magazine, charted
their project for over 43 weeks! In their unmistakable style and with their
unmistakable sound, these projects remain a source for inspiration and imitation.

heart for worship, you won't want to miss one.

Inimitable. It’s a hard word to say - and Mickey Mangun is difficult to describe. “Inimitable” just might do it! Awaken the Dawn, from the first cut to the last, is a worship project. Mickey Mangun is the primary praise and worship leader at The Pentecostals of Alexandria, where her husband, Anthony, serves as pastor. Awaken the Dawn is her 5th solo project - and is a newfound expression from the heart of a worshipper. This is not a performance project. Mickey Mangun simply invites you into her prayer and into His presence.
Awaken the Dawn features several duets. “Who Am I / Grace Flows Down” features the Mangun’s daughter, Miquell Hennigan, Jonathan Moore joins her for Small Enough and vocal producer/session singer Tim Davis is heard on “I Stand In Awe.” Mickey gives a heartfelt rendition of the Richard Smallwood hit “Total Praise” and is joined by the choir from The Pentecostals of Alexandria. Many of the songs on the project were written by today’s top praise and worship writers including “Blessing In the Thorn” by Randy Phillips of Phillips, Craig, and Dean.
The process of selection and elimination for this project was grueling. There are no “filler” songs here. Every song is a projection from the heart and soul of Mickey Mangun. She says even now she has no favorite song on the project because she loves every one of them so much they’re all favorites.
Mickey Mangun was an invited soloist in the innaugural activities for former President Bill Clinton (both terms) and was also invited to participate in several additional musical performances held at the White House during the Clinton administration.
The Pentecostals Of Alexandria
Ask anyone who’s ever been there. It is an indescribable and awe-inspiring experience. Ministers and their families from across the nation and around the world gather for three nights and two days of preaching, praising, worship and singing.Recorded live at The Pentecostals of Alexandria, this worship project under the music direction of Kevin and Pam Howard, makes an attempt to capture the moments that made Because of the Times 2000 a remarkable worship event.From the first time you listen, you will know that every time you hear it again, you will find yourself worshiping with people who serve the “Mighty God”!
The Pentecostals Of Alexandria Youth Choir
It seems that virtually every growing vital church - across denominational and geographical lines - has a youth group. (This one is called RUSH.) Most youth group’s have a youth leader - and if they’re lucky have a full-time youth pastor. (This one’s name is Tim Rutledge). And every great youth group has a great youth choir. However...you’ve never heard one quite like this one. Under the direction of Johnathan Dean, this first ever Youth Choir project from the Pentecostals of Alexandria reflects the excellence and unmistakable anointing reflected in projects from this church’s adult choir...only this is “the next generation.” The choir has conducted several tours across our nation encouraging youth - and adults alike - with their unmistakable commitment, energy, and worship.
Unfailing Love, the title song of the project was written by P.O.A. Music Minister Kevin Howard and features the vocal talents of Kara Vanover. Other Youth soloists are: Timothy LeBlanc, Tyler Walea, Micah Joiner, Daniel Terrell, Heather Knight, and Shanna Braneff. Mustard Seed Faith and One Sweet Day was penned by the group’s director, Johnathan Dean. The styles reflect heavy R&B, funk, contemporary black gospel - along with the anthem of High Praises featuring Madonna McFall Massey, and a cover of the more traditional With My Whole Heart by the late Thomas Whitfield.
Tim Freeman has been called the “Vince Gill” of gospel music. (And his wife’s name is Amy!) But not to be locked into a country style, you’ll find his versatility compelling. From his own heart and pen came The Other Side of Broken. The voice reflects the sincerity of the man as the ballads on this project deliver their messages.
After growing up in Natchez, MS Tim moved to Alexandria, LA where he has been a vital member of the choir and music program at The Pentecostals of Alexandria. Tim and his wife Amy are both active worship leaders in the Pentecostals organization and Amy’s vocal talents can be heard as a featured soloist on the “Mighty God” project. Tim’s previous solo project, He Didn’t Leave Me, also reflects his timeless and matchless sense of style and delivery that reaches the heart of the listener.
Tim’s alter ego, Harry Bunch, is one half of the unmistakable dynamic duo - Bunch & Breeze Ministries. If you ever hear Tim, you won’t believe he’s Harry Bunch. If you ever hear Harry Bunch, you won’t believe he’s Tim Freeman.
In every generation there are voices and songs that mark the time. And every once in a while, there is a voice – and a song or two – that transcend the lines of time and are just as meaningful to the ones who first heard them as the ones who are hearing them for the first time. Bobbie Shoemake has Been Through Enough and from the songs she’s written herself to the familiar songs of others – her unmistakable voice reaches out to young and old alike with messages of hope and healing.
She is a gifted musician, singer, song-writer. She is a wife, a mother, a grandmother. She’s a pastor’s wife, counselor, and choir director. She plays. She sings. She’s Bobbie Shoemake. Whether singing the songs of her friends – like DayStar penned by Steve Richardson – or the one’s she’s written from her own heart – “The Race” and “My Prayer” – you’ll find yourself listening to this project again and again.
Joy Haney has been a well-known author having written 45 books but audiences everywhere are gravitating to her second solo project “Just Believe”. The wife of Kenneth F. Haney, General Superintendent of the United Pentecostal Church, Joy is internationally known as a dynamic minister and speaker.
Just Believe is an uplifting collection of songs with a message of hope with songs like “He’ll Deliver Me”, “He Painted A New Picture” penned by Joy’s daughter Sherrie Woodward and “I’ll Win The War” by writer/producer Glen Woodward. She also penned two of the songs on the album with Woodward, “Remember Calvary” and the title cut “Just Believe”.
A well-known author and gifted speaker, Ruth Rieder shows her musical personality on Power In Praisin’, her first musical effort. With styles ranging from Big Band on the title cut, to the foot-stomping “Looking For A City” (written by Ruth herself) to a fresh look at the traditional Hymn “Oh To Walk With Thee”, Ruth delivers each vocal performance with the same passion as she authors her books. Other selections include a cover of the Brooklyn Tabernacle Choir hit “You’re My Praise” with veteran singer/musician Timothy Spell as well as a more contemporary ballad entitled “He Means So Much To Me”.
