To Whom It May Concern,

I would like to personally recommend my dear friends, The Sounds of Salvation for ministry in your church and/or event. These are two of the nicest people I have ever met. I have personally been in service with them on several occasions and they not only minister in song they minister to the heart. After being around them personally it is very obvious that they live what they sing!

I believe anyone that would include The Sounds of Salvation in their service or event would be greatly blessed and would invite them back again.

A personal note:
Charles and Jareta have ministered at our church for 10 years or more.
They have been faithful in their ministry and have shown the marks of true Christianity. Their spirit of Grace, love and compassion are exhibited through both their music and Brother Charles's preaching. I consider it a priviledge to call them Brother and Sister in the Lord!

Dear Pastors and Music Directors,
Charles and Jareta Sturgell have been dear friends and associates of mine for more than 5 years. We met through their work in the ministry. Charles is an evangelist, singer and songwriter. Jareta sings and writes music as well. They do a wonderful work for the Lord. They do a lot of Charity work, such as holding benefits to raise money for those in need. They work with The American Cancer Society's Relay for Life. Charles himself is a cancer survivor and carries the testimony of how God healed him and saved his soul. They have volunteered their time and talent to help St. Judes Children's Research Hospital, The Children's Miracle Network and local charities such as The Shepherds Center, to name a few. It was because of their spirit and love for the Lord that I asked them to join me in my ministry. I publish a non-denominational Christian Magazine called, "Gift of Grace". They have been a vital part of the magazine for over 4 years. Charles writes a monthly devotional column, some poetry and other features. Jareta is co-editor of the magazine. They are devoted to the Lord and to seeing souls saved. I am honored to call them my friends and my brother and sister in Christ. I highly recommend them for any service at your place of worship. I assure you, you will be blessed. If I can be of any further assistance please contact me.

Sincerely yours in Christ,

Hello! We are The Sounds of Salvation Trio. Charles and Jareta Sturgell and Wayne Woodard. We love The Lord and serving Him is our number one priority. We sing southern gospel music and Charles is also an evangelist. He loves to preach the Word of God. Charles & Jareta are originally from Western Kentucky. But have lived in the mountains of East Tennessee since January of 1996. In 1994 Charles was diagnosed with Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma. In 1995 he had a reoccurance. Charles had a third reoccurance in February of 1996 right after they moved. God miraculously healed him in May of 1996. The cancer has been in remission ever since. Charles thought he was dying but God showed him how to live!! He saved his soul April 20th 1997 and called him to preach in August of 1999. Jareta grew up serving the Lord by playing the piano and singing in the choir in church. She was saved when she was eight years old at Hamlet Baptist Church in Benton, Kentucky, she says, "I can still remember what it felt like when The Lord was knocking on my hearts door. That is a day I will never forget. I am honored and humbled to be a part of this ministry and serve The Lord daily." Wayne accepted Jesus as his Savior around the age of eleven during a revival. It was during his teen years that the Lord firmly planted the seed of love for His music in his heart. Wayne's prayer is for the Lord to continually plant his feet on the road that He wants him to travel for His work and Glory. We also want to mention Wayne's wife Jenny. She runs the sound equipment for the group. She has worked for the Lord for many years in different areas of her home church as well as running sound for the music ministry. She is a wonderful Christian and has such a sweet spirit. The ministry keeps us very busy traveling to different areas. If you would like for us to come to your church to sing or for Charles to preach the Gospel just give us a call. Our phone number is (423)921-0403. We would love to hear from you. Or you can e-mail us at: Please check our Itinerary for our schedule of places we will be. Please keep us in your prayers and May God Bless You!!
