Southern Gospel Today is owned and operated by HFM Media / Howard Family Ministries in Nashville, Tennessee

HFM has a rich history in Internet Ministry as they began in 1995 working through AOL operating a Christian Ministry Chat Room in which thousands came each week within a few months of starting the presence. A team of counselors and advisers were assembled to handle the load and ministry nee

ds in the room. The very first web site, was put in place and remains there today with free books, and insights to all. In 1999 a venture called Southern Gospel Chat found it’s way to the Internet and each week again thousands joined in online chats 24 hours a day 7 days a week from around the world. This site would feature the names in Southern Gospel who would join for special one on one chats with the fans once a week. Folks like Hovie Lister, Vestal Goodman, Kirk Talley, Little Willie Wynn, and others shared with fans inside the chat room. The room was sold to Akers Ministries in North Carolina in 2001 and remained until the owners death the next year. A web hosting company was formed in 2001 to provide affordable web hosting for gospel groups and churches around the country. The hosting company grew each year until they had to add another server for sites being hosted. In 2009 HFM / HFM Media became a partner and soon owner of what is now called Southern Gospel Magazine, sold to Brewer Media in 2011. They also purchased sister site Gospel 45 Now which is a radio release web site. In January 2012, Southern Gospel Today began it’s presence on the Internet and quickly became one of the favorites among it’s peers. May, 2012 saw over 1 million visits to the web site and it has remained steady ever since. We would love to hear from you.

the website is no longer available. Someone sold our domain name and they want a fortune for it,... good luck to them.


WOW! A couple of years ago I opened up a social media website similar to facebook, but it's primary focus was for ministries and singing groups, and fans of such. Today there are over 2100 members to the site! But all of the "members" are advertising something that is not related to the main subjects or focus of the site. It's a shame that people will complain about a huge site like this but keep using it instead of supporting on that is owned by Christians, operated by Christians, with a Christian focus! Check out and see what our "Christian" community has become? Disgusted.

It seems all we ever post about here anymore is the legends we have lost... Today, it's Ed Hill. Ed was a founding member of the Prophets Quartet back in 1959. The all star line up of artist he has worked with would read like a list of who's who. Prophets, The Stamps, Singing Americans, Songfellows.... Many today do not know it, but Ed Hill was the infamous voice who at the close of each Elvis performance that spoke . . . "Ladies and gentlemen, Elvis has left the building. Thank you and good night!" Ed was born February 23, 1935 in St Louis, MO
