|"Gold City’s biggest asset is their unparalleled dedication to Ministry. On more than one occasion, I have witnessed Gold City deliver a God given introduction, for the exact perfect song, at the exact perfect moment in somebody’s life in our church. Gold City had no knowledge of the situation, they were simply being attentive to the leading of The Holy Spirit. I consider Gold City more than just the best singers in Christian Music, more than just friends, they’re full partners with us in our Ministry to spread The Gospel."|
