Sojourner Quartet is a southern gospel quartet based in Findlay, Ohio. They are currently national recording artists with Chapel Valley Studio on the Church House label. Sojourner began in 1991 as a contemporary Christian group playing their own instruments and writing many of their own songs. As their popularity spread they began to perform across the country. In 2007 the group went solely southern gospel. Over the years, several of their songs released to southern gospel radio made the charts in the USA and in Europe. Their mission is to glorify God through their music and personal testimony. Sojourner Quartet members are Mark May, Larry Counterman, Jeff McGlade and Isaac Steinhour.
