The Pfeifers (1979-Present)


The Believers formed in 1979 in Roanoke, Virginia. Early members included Candy Pfeifer, Kathy Lawson, Lee Lawson, Jeff Snyder, Mark Layman, and David Lawrence. In the early years, The Believers practiced in the basement of Jack and Betty Lawson, the parents of Lee and Kathy. In 1981, the group name was changed to the Pfeifer Evangelistic Singers. They began singing at revival events where Candy's father, Don Pfeifer, was preaching. At this point, they relocated to Waverly, Ohio where Don Pfeifer's ministry was based. The group name went through several iterations in the early 1980s before being simplified to The Pfeifers.

Candy was ultimately joined by her brother, trumpet player, and singer, John Pfeifer. Mary Jane Carter would eventually join as well. Other group members have come and gone, but these three have been the consistent members who have continued The Pfeifers' musical legacy.
