We recently had Darrell and dawn Ritchie at Sweat Memorial. Our church was blessed and enjoyed having them. Their musicianship was excellent but even more importantly, their Christian attitude and love for the Lord was obvious.
I talked to several of our people and all said they enjoyed the service and the music. No one had a complaint or negative comment.
I would recommend the Ritchie's for any church that enjoys casual "middle of the road" music. Not too far either way!

Pine Grove Baptist Church in Centre, Alabama was pleased to host Darrell and Dawn Ritchie for a Sunday evening concert recently. Darrell and Dawn are personable, relatable, and humble. They came with no agenda except to sing and worship and bless the church. They were a joy to work with on scheduling and setup.
Dawn's testimony and Darrell's songwriting made for a wonderful night of authentic worship. As a Minister of Music, I was pleased with how they asked about our church, our worship, and worked to tailor their songs and testimonies to our needs. We highly recommend them!

We were recently privileged to have Darrell and Dawn Ritchie at Rentz Baptist Church. Their music was uplifting, encouraging, and focused upon the Cross. Their style of music is able to bridge the generations and appeal to all. I would happily recommend them to all churches that are interested in soul stirring Gospel music. We will definitely have them with us again at Rentz Baptist Church.

I am so thankful for ministry teams like Darrell and Dawn Ritchie. It’s been my privilege to have Darrell’s ministry in churches I have served on 2 different occasions. Darrell and Dawn don’t just show up to sing they show up to minister to the local church and lead them in worship. They offer a variety of musical styles that will bless any and all age groups in your church.

Darrell & Dawn are a pleasure to work with as they minister to us at Indian River Estates. We are an active retirement community/resort and the residents love Darrell & Dawn. God has certainly gifted both in music, songwriting and worship. The icing on the cake for us is their genuine faith and openness shared before, during and after the concerts. They do a great job of ‘mingling with the congregation.’ We always look forward to having Darrell & Dawn minister in our community.

Darrell and Dawn Ritchie bring a rare quality among the variety of Christian artists. Their writing is scripturally sound, musically exceptional and refreshingly original. Not only does their performance effortlessly connect, God also blessed them with a powerful testimony that will touch the hearts of each person in attendance. The inspiration and joy that their music speaks originates from their heart for worship and will undoubtedly bless your church!

God used His servants, Darrell and Dawn Ritchie to lead us in worship and celebration New Year's Eve and New Year's Day! Thank you both for a wonderful time!

I highly recommend “The Ritchies” to churches and other groups as a great resource for musical and spiritual inspiration and ministry. Darrell and Dawn delighted our congregation in both contemporary and traditional worship services. Familiar songs that we had not heard in a while, combined with brand new very memorable songs composed by Darrell, ministered to and uplifted all ages. Along with their powerful testimonies and sweet Christ-like spirits, their music is well worth your scheduling.

Darrell and Dawn Ritchie blessed our church yesterday at our Fifth Sunday Singing Service. Their mix of contemporary and traditional Gospel music had our congregation clapping hands and left us wanting more. Dawn shared her testimony with us and highlighted how people who have not been raised in church are sometimes intimidated by the "good church people". Having come to Christ, Dawn said that she began to understand that we are all sinners in need of the same Savior, that we need the grace of Jesus' love and forgiveness in our lives.
Both Darrell and Dawn have beautiful voices which they used to lead us to worship, and their simple message of faith and hope, and Darrell's songs written for his son and Dawn touched our hearts.
Any church would be blessed by this wonderful couple. I know that I was blessed by their concert and I am sure everyone here at Moon's Grove received a blessing as well!"

It is my pleasure to recommend the ministry of Darrell Ritchie. Darrell has been gifted with a wonderful voice and an even greater ministry. Darrell faced a time of great adversity when he lost the ability to do that which he loves the most, singing for the Lord. His story, interwoven with his gift, will bless you and your congregation.
I have found him to be a man of integrity and principle and very committed to his home church. Should you have the opportunity, I believe Darrell would be a blessing to your people.
