Gospel singer attends OCU’s Traditional Program
Fayth Lore is a freshman at Ohio Christian University and one quarter of The Lore Family, a traveling family ministry that shares the Gospel through singing, preaching and conducting seminars. The Lore Family has recorded three albums with Daywind Studios in Nashville and ministered in hundreds of services including the National Quartet Convention.
“This new found love of music ministry has stolen my heart. I absolutely love everything about it; from meeting new faces, to witnessing people giving their hearts to the Lord,” said Fayth.
The family travels primarily in the Tri-State area of Ohio, Kentucky and West Virginia but has been blessed to minister in seven states. They primarily sing southern gospel music as well as original songs written by Fayth’s father Darren. Because of her family’s ministry, choosing a college was especially difficult.
“I know that it was a God thing for me to attend Ohio Christian University. I prayed for months about where to attend college, because of our singing career. One night God just gave me peace on OCU! When I sat down with Mike (Vice President of Enrollment) and he asked me if this was my college, tears started coming down my face. I could feel the Lord all over this campus. I knew this is where God wanted me for such a time as this. I believe God is going to do great things this year at Ohio Christian University and I pray that I will have an open heart, mind and eyes to see these great miracles come to pass.”
When she is not traveling with The Lore Family or attending classes at OCU, Fayth is passionate about serving in her home church, 7th Street Christian Baptist Church in Portsmouth, OH. She began teaching three and four year olds about three years ago as part of a Wednesday night kids program for community.
“One of the hardest things about coming to Ohio Christian University was leaving ‘my kids’. When you see how little these kids have, it makes you realize how much God has blessed you with,” said Fayth.
Last year she also hosted her first ever conference for teen girls and had 100 girls attend. She is currently planning another one for this year.
