Overview

We are the Bontrager Family Singers who travel in the US, Canada, and Mexico sharing the love of Jesus and strengthening families.

Marlin, Becky, Allison, Joshua, Cassidy, Wallace, Denver, Taylor, Elizabeth, Hudson, and Rebecca.

We live on a farm in the Midwest, and we love working and singing together! We say that we have two lives, and really we do. Life #1 is touring North America in our 45 foot bus and doing concerts. In Life #2, we work hard on a livestock and crop farm where we milk cows, garden, plant and harvest crops, and pack and unpack while we try to transition to or from Life #1. We love living all together in one (not huge) house and we are each other's best friends.

Our reason for traveling and singing is to share the love of Jesus. We want to tell others what Jesus has done for us and what He can do for them. We are also passionate about encouraging families to be strong in the Lord and to love one another. It is God who has called us to this ministry, and we endeavor to shine His light wherever we go. We sing at churches, festivals, camps, resorts, prisons, nursing homes, and street missions.

We sing Gospel songs of many different genres- hymns, praise songs, Southern Gospel, and more. We provide the instrumentation live using piano, acoustic bass guitar, violins, banjo, acoustic guitar, mandolin, and harmonica. Our style is varied and doesn't fit neatly into any category, but you could probably call us a bluegrass/Southern Gospel mix.
