“Forsaking all and transformed by the Holy Spirit, to make disciples through song, for the greater glory and honor of our most high God,”
is what our motto has been throughout, stated band member Glenlord Rodrigues (lead vocals/rhythm guitar). Accompanying him are fellow band members, Vanessa Menezes (lead vocals), Jessica Rodrigues (backing vocals), Deepak Dourado (backing vocals), Errol Andrade (lead guitar/backing vocals), Jerry Vaz (keyboard/mouth organ/backing vocals), Marwin DaCosta (flute/backing vocals), Gavin Carvalho (bass guitar/backing vocals) and Sergio Mascarenhas (drums).
True to their mission statement, they began as a music ministry for Couples for Christ in 1998 with just three members but have today grown, not only in number, but also in their passion to love and serve the Lord. The new album S.I.G.A. was first released at the Divine Retreat Centre, Kerala before an audience of over 7,000 youth globally, and in Mangalore at the CFCI National Singles Conference. Faith re-released the album in Goa paying special tribute to their parents, believing that the chance to live and come into this world is what brings them together as members to sing for God’s glory.
Their first album titled ‘The Journey’ had 8 tracks and was released in India in 2009. The album had six English and two Konkani music tracks with genres ranging from ballads to rock and pop and sold over 3,000 copies across the globe.
The members of Faith believe that the albums are a testimony of the love and passion that they share for Christ. Faith recently performed and led thousands of people, young and old closer to God at the international retreats in Kerala where they shared the stage with international Gospel singers that include Glen and Theresa La’ Rive (Kerala), Fr Stan Fortuna (US), Empowered Ministry (Malaysia) and Risen Lord Music Ministry (Sri Lanka). Faith has been leading Worship at Divine Retreat Centre for the International Youth and Couples Retreat for over 4 years and has also recorded at the Divine studios, which has been aired globally on Divine TV.
