Nashville, TN (September 1, 2017) After nearly 5 years with the group, Katelyn Montgomery has announced her departure from Master's Promise, following the trio's last performance in December of 2017. The group made the announcement via video posted to their Facebook page on August 30. In the video, Montgomery shares that in October of 2016, she made the decision that 2017 would be her last year with the trio, as she is seeking to finish her bachelors degree in business marketing, as well as to pursue mission work.
After being given the news of Katelyn's departure, Hannah and Rachel Sancricca began to pray and seek the Lord as to the next step for their ministry. As God would have it, the answer would be found close to home--yet on the other side of the country. After a long season of prayer, Rachel's fiancé, Jamie Streetman, current lead singer of Paul's Journey, made the decision to uproot to Michigan to join Master's Promise.
"When Katelyn gave her notice in October, Rachel and I weren't engaged yet, but I already knew that 2017 was the year that I would propose," Streetman says. "With our long-distance relationship, we had to think long-term. So, following Katelyn's news, we started having those conversations... If we got married, would she move to Texas? Would I move to Michigan? As we were praying about everything, that's when the Lord started to really work on my heart and put things in motion. He showed me that this is where I need to be." The two were engaged in March, and will be married in May of 2018.
Members of both Paul's Journey and Master's Promise have support one another fully as this transition takes place. "I want to take this time to wish Jamie and Rachel a blessed future together," says Rod Treme, owner of Paul's Journey, in a video posted to the Paul's Journey Facebook page.
"We are so blessed with such camaraderie on all fronts in this time of transition. We love and support Katelyn in all of her endeavors, and are so thankful to have had the privilege of serving with her for almost 5 years. I am also very grateful to Rod, with Paul's Journey. He has been good to Jamie and I, and his blessing on this new season for my fiancé has been such an added peace!" says Rachel.
Jamie will complete his last date with Paul's Journey in October, and will join Rachel, Hannah, and Katelyn this December for this year's Christmas tour. Starting in in February of 2018, Rachel Sancricca, Hannah Sancricca, and Jamie Streetman will begin travel as the mixed family trio, Master's Promise.
