The Shepherds, a family oriented ministry, was founded thirty-eight years ago by Oliver Edwards, Sr., affectionately known as "Pops.' The original Shepherds drifted away from each other after touring and selling their debut record in Memphis and throughout the Bible belt for over a decade. Pops, who loved singing quartet style gospel music, kept on rehearsing. The family tradition has carried on through his two sons and close friends. Their commitment to ministry is what keeps them going. "We want to minister to people where they are," says Pop Shepherds. With their grass roots approach, they are reaching that man or woman that does not know Christ. Having the opportunity to perform with gospel artist such as The Williams Brothers, Shirley Ceasar, Georgia Mass Choir, Jackson Southernaires, Tommy Ellison & The Five Singing Stars, Canton Spirituals, Mighty Clouds Of Joy and Keith 'Wonderboy' Johnson.The Shepherds' strong spiritual influence attracts everyone they come in contact with. Pops is the founder and lead singer. & His son. Joey who also sings lead directs and works with the band. The band consist of five dedicated young men who contribute to The Shepherds unique sound . 'We want to present Chirst and draw people through his anointing. Our message is music ministry with the word of God blended together to give Him our most excellent praise" Says Joey Producer Michael Houston of Tyscot said of the group, "The Shepherds have the ability to capture the gospel spirit that lives down inside us, and causes us to lose ourselves in the music." Our desire is to constantly draw nearer to God, that He may draw nearer to us.
