Soldiers of the Cross



Kevin Johnston, upright bass; Ernie Johnston, mandolin; Chad Lewis, banjo and guitar; Dan Blake, guitar.


Psalm 98:4 explains exactly what the four members of Soldiers of the Cross, based out of Buckhannon, WV, are all about. These “good ole boys” enjoy getting together and playing Bluegrass Gospel and singing the praises of God when they can.

The band is composed of Chad Lewis, who plays banjo and guitar; Kevin Johnston, upright bass; Dan Blake, guitar; and Ernie Johnston, mandolin. Each of them hold full-time jobs but enjoy gathering together to sing in harmony and pick as often as possible. The group formed by osmosis and came together about ten years ago, with its current lineup, after Chad’s brother left the group.

Glory Magazine sat down with the guys on November 16, 2014 at Full Gospel Church in Buckhannon, WV, where Chad is the pastor, to find out more about their music ministry.
