Dan and Ginger Pitchers are leaving the Lesters. Dan has accepted the position of pastor at First Baptist Church in Annapolis, Mo., effective immediately. He drove the bus and was the sound technician for the group. Ginger Pitchers, alto vocalist and arranger for the group, will leave the road to be with Dan as they serve in Annapolis. Ginger will stay with the group until a replacement is found. Ginger is a great vocalist and will definitely be missed on stage.
The Lesters have announced that they are searching for a male vocalist to join forces with Jonathan and Brian Lester to continue in the family ministry. In a release, they stated that the decision hasn't been an easy one since the Lesters has always had a female vocalist in the group. However, at this point and time in their ministry, they feel having a male vocalist will be best for their ministry.
Pray for all those involved during this time of transition. For anyone interested in sending a demo, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
