A spinoff of the Apostolic Boys Quartet, The Pace Family was formed in January 2012 as an added act traveling with the Apostolic Boys. The Apostolic Boys had their baritone singer resign from the group and not being able to find a replacement, they brought on board two females. The group is a mixed quintet consisting of four of the original five Apostolic Boys, plus the two female vocalists.
Pastor Joel Pace – Lead/Baritone
Melissa Gayton – Soprano
Elissa Pace – Alto
Jared Pace – Tenor/Lead
Joel Pace II – Piano
Troy Roach – Bass
The Pace Family with manager Pastor Joel Pace who Pastors Grace & Truth Apostolic Church in Dallas, Texas, have a new sound with that close blend, family harmony you can hear from the first note they sing. The group’s first recording was a project that was put together in a hurry to have available for a Cruise that both groups sang on. “Well Known Favorites, Volume 1” consists of six well known songs previously recorded by “The Hoppers and The Perrys”. The group did these songs very well.
The second project is “Well Known Favorites, Volume 2” which consists of ten well known songs that the group also did very well.
We thank the Lord for the great success of the Apostolic Boys who won showcases, sang twice on the main stage at NQC, sang at a Gather Homecoming concert with the Gaither Vocal Band and other Homecoming Artists, sang on stage with some of the finest southern gospel artists in the nation, Ernie Haase & Signature Sound, Gold City, The Hoppers, and The Talley’s , just to name a few. We also thank the Lord and all of the churches and concert promoters that used us to sing at church services and events.
Most of all we thank the Lord, that throughout the years of singing we have seen many people receive salvation, receiving the gift of the Holy Ghost, being born of water and Spirit, (John 3:5, Acts 2:38) and many back sliders have come back to the Lord at the many concerts, singings and church services. This is what it is all about and we give God all the glory.
The Apostolic Boys will continue to perform along with The Pace Family at some of their singings and events, but it will be The Pace Family that will take the lead as the main group.
The group hopes to do a project with original songs in the future and is excited about the great possibilities of putting together a great sound using their own arrangements.
Pray for The Pace Family that the Lord would open doors for them to sing for the glory of the Lord to whom He would choose.
The Pace Family would be glad to come and sing for your church or activity, schedule permitting. Pastor Pace will also preach for you. Of course Pastor Pace being Pastor of GTAC must put that as top priority.
