The Gospel Travelers of Indy Makes Special Announcement to Fans

On behalf of the Gospel Travelers of Indy, Brother Dave Davis would like to thank God and all of their loyal fans for supporting them throughout the years. The Gospel Travelers of Indy originated in 1975 and have been traveling the country, spreading the joy of Jesus Christ ever since. However, the group is sad to announce they’re taking a hiatus from traveling and performing their ministry, due to the unforeseen, tragic passing of their beloved brothers: Stanley “Big Poppa” Douglas and Kenny “Daddy Love” Priestley.


“We are very, very sad to inform you all that we must take time off to regroup,” says Bro. Dave Davis. “It has been hard for us to move forward, but God will deliver. Stanley and Kenny will live forever in our hearts and in our music. Thank God for blessing this group with the opportunity to be heard all over the world. Keep praying and visiting the site as I will give more details in the near future. God Bless in Jesus Name.”


The Gospel Travelers of Indianapolis, Indiana (Indy) was founded by the honorable Reverend Johnny Douglas in November of 1975. The group featured the traditional, old fashioned quartet sound. Throughout the years, many of the members were called into ministry, including the Rev. Johnny Douglas. Therefore, Rev. Douglas decided to pass the torch to his son, Stanley Douglas, to take on his role in the group.

    I am truly saddened to hear this. But, as Christians we have to listen to God & know when he’s ordering our steps. I will continue to pray for Douglas & Priestley famalies.
