The Crist Family Announces Retirement

After traveling full-time for the last ten years, The Crist Family has decided that it is time to come off the road.

With John and Tami Starkel’s recent decision to pursue some new paths at this time in their lives, along with the Crist girls getting married and looking to start families of their own, it is evident that this chapter in The Crist Family is coming to a close.”One thing is certain,” says Rich Crist of The Crist Family, “life will have changes. It was a major time of change ten years ago when God called us into full-time ministry. Now, with this change, we are looking forward to see where He takes us next. It has been a wonderful journey and we will forever be grateful for the friendships we have made along the way.”

Following their West Coast Tour in February, The Crist Family will finish out 2014 with “Farewell Concerts” on a limited basis.

“We thank God, Crossroads, The Harper Agency, our peers and all of the Southern Gospel Music fans. Thank you for the love and support you have shown to us along the way. We will always love you!”

We are sad. But we also know that our ways are not Gods ways. We will be praying for the next chapter in your lives. In our hearts we will always be The Crist Family fans. Thankful for our DVD’s and CD’s, oh I can’t forget our picture made with The Crist Family on 2011 Singing in Sun cruise. God Bless every Crist Family member.

To say that you have been great would be an understatement! I am one of the thousands upon thousands that you have blessed. I wish that I could have seen you, but thank God, I have heard you! Thank you so much! You have left your mark on gospel music history! I am retiring too on June 30 after 42 years in the ministry. Thank you so much! Preacher Dave

When I read this message , the “Andrew Crouch song ” “How Can I Say Thanks” pop up in my mind… Thank you a lot for spending time with us here in Norway sharing your lovely songs and life as witnesses for our Lord Jesus Christ ! Wish you all and each of you still an exciting journey -a wish mixed with our common Holy hope of meeting again some day! Sincerly from your Englishman in Norway – Harry V;)

Thank you so very much for your great dedication to the thing I love most – Professional Gospel Music! I discovered you on XM Radio and, even though I’ve not seen you in person, I am a great fan. I traveled to Monticello, Arkansas about a year or so ago to see you at an Assembly of God church on a Sunday night. I went to the wrong AofG church, and after waiting for an hour before I realized my mistake, it was too late. So, I traveled the 180 miles back home. I have really enjoyed your CD’s and Your videos on YouTube. God bless you and thank you for all others that you have blessed. I am one who has been truly blessed by your ministry
