The Lore Family consists of Darren, Sandy and their two children, Fayth and Samuel. For over two decades, they have shared the responsibilities and joys of having a family ministry. Over the past several years, The Lore Family has ministered in hundreds of services. Although the churches and venues have been diverse, most have been very receptive to the message shared. The Lore Family sings a variety of music including; classic & current southern gospel favorites, as well as, originals written by Darren. Whether singing with tracks, live music, or a cappella, The Lore Family ministers to all ages. It doesn’t take long for others to be inspired by the passion and the anointing of this spirit-filled family. They certainly have a desire to see souls saved, the church strengthened and God’s name exalted!
