The Lannings, from Phoenix, AZ., have been singing southern gospel music as a family since 1995. Although the family has been singing for only a short period of time, Jim and Christine are no strangers to the ministry of music.
Jim has served in several churches as minister of music and was the Director of Music at Southwestern Conservative Baptist Bible College in Phoenix for 17 years. Jim is also known for his personal performances on the trumpet and flugal horn.
Together, with his wife Christine (who is also a ventriloquist), they have captivated their audience with a special family oriented ministry. Now, along with the talents of their children, they have developed a gospel style of singing with beautiful family harmonies.
