It is the mission of Willow Creek Quartet to let our light shine before all men, that they will see His good works and glorify Him who is in heaven.  It is our desire to first glorify God through our witness and our song, then to see the lost come to salvation and the saved to receive renewed strength.  We are a group of men who love God and strive to do His work and His will. 

We ask for your support in prayer as we travel just down the road or across the country sharing God's word in song.


John Richardson, Group Manager and Baritone


I live in Rossville, Georgia with the love of my life, Betty.  I endeavor to live the mission of Willow Creek Quartet, which is to let our light shine and sing praise unto God, giving Him all the glory.  I want to see people ask Jesus into their heart.  Jesus said, "Behold, I stand at the door and knock:  if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me." - Revelations 3:20 KJV

Please keep Willow Creek Quartet in your prayers as we, as a group, follow the mission to preach the Word in song.

He along with some friends started a quartet, known as "The Little Boys Qt.".  He was approached as a high school junior by a fellow named Dale Shulnut, who was singing with the Rythym Masters in Birmingham for a tenor, but was nixed til after high school.

     After graduation he moved to the North Georgia area and sang with The Harmony Masters Qt.  Since that time has sang with several trios and quartets including River City Qt.

     He has a dedication to serve the Lord thru his singing.  He loves the Lord with all his heart and his primary purpose is to see souls saved through his singing and testimony.

Don Bethune, Lead Vocals


  Psalm 95: I says, O come, let us sing unto the Lord. Let us make a joyful noise to the Rock of our salvation.


Music has always been a very important part of my life. From singing in the church choir as a child, being a music director and singing solo or with a group. I am so honored that God has granted me the opportunity to sing with Willow Creek Quartet. I was saved in August of 1979 and it is my desire to see souls come to Jesus and know that they have a home in heaven after this life is over. I pray that as we sing, we present Jesus and His saving grace to a lost world.

I am so thankful for my wife, Pat and our family that supports me in this music mission.

To God be the Glory, great things He has done.
