The Apostolic Boys got started about 20+ years ago as Joel II, Jared, Albert, and Troy began to sing southern gospel songs. Pastor Pace noticed that they needed some help, so he offered to sing with them. The quartet then consisted of Pastor Pace (Lead), Jared (Tenor), Joel II (Baritone) and Troy (Bass). Albert would fill in for a fifth part or be the lead on certain songs.
The year 1999 was a very exciting year as the group went on a one week tour through Mississippi, Kentucky and Tennessee. With the group singing and Pastor Pace preaching they were a blessing to the churches that they visited. One stop was at the National Quartet Convention in Louisville, Kentucky where the group sang in a contest.
The Apostolic Boys did their first recording project in 2000 titled "Singing and Rejoicing". Their next project was "Steppin Out". The music tracks were done in Knoxville, TN headed by the late Jeff Stice. The vocals, orchestration, and mixing were done in Nashville, TN by Otis Forest at his studio.
Their next project "Truth Is Marching On" was completed in 2007. Again the music tracks were produced by Jeff Stice and the vocals were produced by Robb Tripp at his studio in Hendersonville, TN. This album consisted of more original music written by Pastor Joel Pace and Jared Pace. There are also some well known Southern Gospel songs that were previously recorded by well known artists. The song "Thy Kingdom Come" made the Gospel Music Charts in 2008.

In 2009 the Apostolic Boys released their first live recording titled "The Live Album". It includes songs from the "Steppin Out and Truth is Marching On" CD's, plus a few new songs also.
In 2005 The Apostolic Boys sang at the Southern Gospel News Fan Fest in Smyrna, TN with well known artists like The Crabb Family, Gold City, The Booth Brothers, The Talley Trio and many others. They also sang at the first ever Southern Gospel Music Fan Fair in Chattanooga, TN with many well known artists.
In 2009, Albert left the The Apostolic Boys, however he would still join them occasionally for special dates and singings. In 2009 and 2010 the Apostolic Boys won the Featured Artist Showcases and were invited to sing on the main stage at the National Quartet Convention. Then, in 2010 the Apostolic Boys got the invitation to sing at the Bill Gaither Homecoming concert in Amarillo, TX.
Although much more sporadically, The Apostolic Boys continued to sing a few dates a year, continuing to use their talents and gifts for the glory of God. In 2021, well known Southern Gospel singer Jeremy Peace joined the group and they began the recording of a new album.
Recording in Hendersonville, TN in 2007.
We thank the Lord most of all, that throughout the years of singing we have seen many people receive salvation, receiving the gift of the Holy Ghost, being born of water and Spirit, (John 3:5, Acts 2:38) and many back sliders have come back to the Lord at the many concerts, singings and church services. This is what it is all about and we give God all the glory.

Pray for the Apostolic Boys that the Lord would continue to lead them in the direction and plan He has set.
We can't wait to see you soon in concert!
