Vernon Simmons was born to Vernon and Shelby Simmons in 1971. I grew up in Troy, NC, where I started singing at an early age. My father and brothers would sit on our front porch and play music on Saturday nights, and I would listen to the harmony of the old gospel songs like “The Old Rugged Cross” and “How Great Thou Art”, and I knew there was something special about that great God they were singing about. When I was ten I gave my heart to the Lord and began to sing anytime I could sneak the mic away from our preacher, and at revival services around Troy and Asheboro. In 2003 I made a call to the Trinity Quartet about a song I heard on the radio. Mike asked me if I sang tenor and 20 years later I’m still here. What an honor to sing in a quartet and still see souls saved to a song or testimony. Today I live in Asheboro, NC with my wife, Tammy, of 25 years. I want to thank her for sharing and supporting me in this ministry. My desire is that God use me and this group through His Son to see souls saved.

Michael Toney is the lead singer and manager of Trinity Quartet. Born and raised in Burlington, NC, Michael accepted the Lord his senior year of high school at the age of sixteen. Bill Graham came to Williams High School in 1969 and held Revival in the gym all week long. Michael was there every night and on Friday night he accepted the Lord as his Personal Savior. Soon he drifted away and started singing in night clubs and country music bars. This went on for many years. In 1990 he redirected his life back to the Lord and started singing gospel music. He started singing with The Dosses in a mixed quartet. Two years laters he started his own trio, "Trinity". A few years later Trinity became Trinity Quartet. I would like to thank all the people that have been in Trinity Quartet over the years. Each one will always have a special place in my heart. I am thankful for the opportunity to sing the  message in song to a lost and dying world, and be an encouragement to believers. I have been married to my wife, Tina, for 35 years. We have one son, Austin, his beauitful wife Brandy and three grandchildren Ryen, Logan and Collins.

I hope to see you in a service. May God Bless!

Scripture: Jeremiah 29:11

Being born in the mountains of Virginia, quartet music has always been a huge part of my life. Looking back over events of my past, it was obvious that God had plans for my life. No matter how hard I tried to do it my way, it never would work out. I am saved, and married to my loving and talented wife of 12 years, Denise. We have four great children, and soon to be three grandchildren, as well as two dogs and two birds. It is an honor to be invited to sing with the Trinity Quartet. In His time, I am finally where I believe I am supposed to be. All praise and honor to our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ! For it is through Him that all things are possible.

I was blessed to be raised in a Christian home with parents who served actively in our local church for many years. I was taught the joy of serving the Lord at an early age. I was saved at a youth event at the age of 9. My mom sang in a local church group and I grew up going to concerts watching groups like The Inspirations, The Hoppers, Gold City, etc. From an early age, I knew God had plans to use me in ministry. When my voice changed at the age of 15, I began singing bass with a local quartet. I attended Southern Gospel Music School at the age of 19 where I had an opportunity to have one on one voice lessons with some of the best artists in Gospel Music. From 2009 until joining Trinity Quartet in 2012, I formed a group called Surrender, which consisted of my family. In 2010, I met my wife, Anna, and we married in 2011. In January 2013, God blessed us with our amazing daughter. Our family resides in Elon College, NC, It is my sincere prayer that God will continue to use me and encourage fellow believers and to share God's message through Southern Gospel song.
