The Lesters
Whether you have followed the music of the Lesters for years – or you’re just finding out about us for the very first time – we are so glad you’re here. We hope you will take a few minutes and catch up on the latest news of what God is doing through this ministry around the country.

Simply put, we love music. . . and we love introducing others to Jesus Christ through our music and personal ministry. It’s a passion that began with our grandparents, Harvey and Opal Lester, in 1925. And it’s one that has endured to the third, fourth and fifth generations.
We'll continue to do exactly what we've done for 90 years now, and that is to Sing, Teach, and Preach the gospel; whatever it takes!  I, Brian Lester, am extremely thrilled to be a part of The Lester Family Music Ministry.  I represent the Third Generation; my son Jonathan represents the Fourth Generation.

Our Future - Future......Waiting in "the wings" is a Fifth Generation of The Lester Family; I believe that one day they'll be heard from as they "Carry The Message!"One might think after 90 years it would be time to stop; but for The Lesters.....stopping isn't an option.  I can't really explain it, but I have always known in my heart that singing gospel music is what God has placed me here to do.  My heart's desire has always been to sing the gospel in song; truly, it's been the story of my life.  But much more than a desire simply to sing, I believe God has had this ministry here for a purpose; dating back to its beginnings.

One last important stat:  We are highly honored that three of the original Lesters have been inducted into the Southern Gospel Music Hall of Fame;  Harvey B. Lester (2004)  ~  Herschel L. Lester (2008)  ~  Opal A. Lester (2011).

Without question our most requested song of all time is, "He Didn't Throw The Clay Away."  As long as there's anyone to sing to......we'll "keep on singing" that message.
