Wade Lentz Ministries

Wade's Story


Wade Lentz inherited his love for music from his parents, Fred and Birdie Lentz. At a young age, they took Wade to hear the Cathedral Quartet; Wade says from that point on the love for gospel music has never left him.

At the age of 15, while listening and singing along to a Cathedral Quartet record, Wade discovered that he could sing the bass line along with George Younce (the bass singer for the Cathedrals.) “I will never forget that moment. When I hit those low notes, I yelled for my dad to come and listen to me and when he heard me he was just as surprised as I was!” Wade says, with a chuckle.

Wade - The Preacher

Ministry Recommendations

“In an age of compromise, capitulation, and religious pluralism, one can come down with the Elijah syndrome – thinking there are simply no more faithful men left in our world today. Thankfully, I have the privilege of knowing this is not the case because of fellow pastors in my life like Wade Lentz. Not only is he a gifted communicator of eternal truths, but both his life and ministry reveal his love for Christ and service to Him as King. He is committed to the inerrant, infallible Bible, the gospel of grace, the necessity of the local church, and the primacy of preaching. His zeal for calling sinners to faith and repentance as well as his heart for seeing believers mature in the faith is a welcome breath of fresh air in the midst of today’s devolving evangelicalism.”

Music Reviews

”My dad always said, “preachers should never sing, and singers should never preach.”  Well, my dad never had the privilege of meeting Wade Lentz. Wade has been a friend for over a decade now. I know him to be a man who loves his God, his family, his church, and gospel music. Wade is able to deliver a lyric with the heart of a pastor and has a voice that is strong and melodic at the same time. What a thrill it was to listen to his debut project. It is a must-have for anyone looking for quality and inspiration at the same time. Well done, my friend.\”

-Pat Barker-bass singer for the Guardians Quartet.

”It’s rare to hear a preacher that sings but to hear a preacher that sings bass is even rarer. Well, Wade Lentz is a preacher that can not only sing but has an awesome bass voice. He has recorded some great songs on this album that really shows his tremendous range as a vocalist on songs such as “Go Right Out” and “I Found A Hiding Place”.  It’s hard for me to pick a favorite on his solo project. Don’t miss out on getting this wonderful solo album by Wade.\”
