ADORATION Quartet From its outset in 2001, the message of Adoration Quartet has struck a resounding chord – to see the lost come to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ. Now, well over a decade later, this purpose driven devotion continues today delivered by some of the most talented and spirit filled gentlemen in Southern Gospel Music. Group members Chris Serlick,Dustin Leming,Mark Dayoc & James Harrelson. have all previously toured/served with a number of respected Southern Gospel artists, evangelists and pastorates perfecting their God given talents in ministry and now bring that experience to bear in Adoration Quartet. The result is rich, high-energy, four-part harmonies, stirring testimonies and a message of hope conveyed by professional, sincere, compassionate servants of the body of Christ. It is the prayer of our hearts that we have the opportunity to share the message of the Gospel through the ministry of Adoration Quartet and advance the cause of Christ with you soon.
Bass vocalist, Chris Serlick, began singing at just 17 in a number of quartets in Florida. But duty called and he served our country for 20 years in the US Air Force before retiring in 2001. After leaving active duty, Chris formed Adoration Quartet and has traveled regionally for several years. His musical influences include some of Southern Gospel’s greatest bass singers such as Tim Riley, George Younce, and Jeff Chapman - who tutored Chris for some time. When not on the road, Chris enjoys spending quality time on the water or on the slopes with his wife Janay and children Chase and Fayth.
Dustin Leming, Baritone for Adoration Quartet, comes to us from Johnston City, Illinois. He grew up in a church pew traveling and singing solo for his evangelist grandfather who is still active in the ministry after many years. An accomplished pianist as well, Dustin honed the talents God has placed within him singing and playing for a number of groups over several years. It is our pleasure to introduce this young man to Adoration Quartet and Southern Gospel Music. Beyond singing baritone and playing piano Dustin is the graphic designer for the group and tirelessly assists in a number of other capacities. We’re sure you will appreciate his heart for ministry and many talents as much as we do.
