Primghar Welcomes The Bontrager Family Singers


The Bontrager Family

The Bontrager Family Singers are being welcomed to the Primghar and surrounding area by American Reformed Church. The family of 12 travel the country, singing for the purpose of sharing the love of Jesus; to tell others what Jesus has done for them and what he can do for others.

The family loves on a Midwestern farm, working and singing together. The travel in a 45-foot bus and work a livestock and crop farm. Each member of the family sings and plays an instrument.

The Bontrager family sings Gospel of many genres – hymns, praise songs, Southern Gospel and more. Family members provide the live instrumentation for the singing. The use a range of instruments: piano, acoustic bass guitar, violins, banjo, acoustic guitar, mandolin, and harmonica.

The family's foray into singing began when the children were young. After music lessons became part of their lives, they began to perform at nursing homes. That branched into performances at Salvation Army soup kitchen. That led to a request to perform at South Carolina prisons. The road trips like this began in 2005 and expanded annually. In 2008 they were on the road for 3 weeks. By 2011 the family spent as much time on the road as they spent at home.

The Bontrager Family Singers are gracing Primghar at a performance at American Reformed Church on Saturday June 8 at 7:00p.m. The Dan and Ginger Ebel family helped coordinate the event.
