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. Saturday nights, I would listen to the harmony of the old gospel songs like “The Old Rugged Cross” and “How Great Thou Art”, I knew there was something special about the great God they were singing about. When I was ten I gave my heart to the Lord. I began to sing anytime I could sneak the mic away, 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 21 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 30 years. I want to thank her for 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 later 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 40 years. We have one son, Austin, his beautiful wife Brandy and three grandchildren Ryen, Logan and Collins.

I hope to see you in a service.

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 18 years, Denise. We have four children , 7 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.

William Strickland was born to Donnie & Barbara Strickland in 1984. My mom and I joined Cloverdale Church of the Living God in Archdale, and I am still a current member today. I always loved southern gospel music listening to the Cathedrals, Gold City and The Gaither Vocal Band. I was always drawn to the sound of the bass singers and wanted to sing bass in my early teenage years. The first quartet that I had ever heard in person was Trinity Quartet when they had come to our church in 1996. From that point on in my life my heart was to sing with a Quartet. I have sung with a few groups over the years, Glenn Jacobs Family, Southern Journey, and recently Molded Clay Quartet.

God knew when I was singing with the Glenn Jacobs Family that I would have meet my wife on October 1, 2017. She has been by my side from that day. We got married on Valentine’s Day 2020. God always has a plan for us, and we must be focused on him in order to see his works for us. I have two biological children, four stepchildren, 3 precious grandchildren. I am truly a blessed man and I give God all the praise and honor for what he has done for me and my family. I will continue to worship him for he is a Good Father.

My desires are to see people to come to know Jesus and spread the message through song and
worship.
