Virginia started singing in public at approximately 3 years of age at the local general store, where she would sing for her choice of candy from the enclosed glass case! She continued to sing and entered and won various talent shows over the years.
At age 15, Virginia met and later married Jack Tipton. Jack was a singer and musician in a country band. Virginia occasionally sang with them. God called to her at age 21 and she gave her heart and life to the Lord. Jack followed a few years later and they sang as a trio with a friend Carol Allender.
Carol co-wrote two of the songs featured on the “Oh Bless His Name” project. Carol left the group when she and her husband Norman became missionaries to Mexico. God has blessed them and used them to win countless souls for the Kingdom as they have preached the gospel and spread the word of God’s love for many years now.
Jack and Virginia continued on with their ministry. Over time they had three children Sharon, Lesa and Dan. Sharon is a mother of two; Melanie and Jeff and has four stepsons. She is a grandmother of seven, and is a preschool teacher. Sharon sings and has a children’s puppet ministry in her church. Lesa is a mother of two; Chris and Aimee. Dan is the only son. Dan’s wife, Beth, and his three children, Jacob, Jackson and Jacie stand faithfully by his ministry, as well as Lesa’s family stand by her.
Dan & Lesa followed the glamour of the world for the early part of their lives, but they too came to Christ, and now devote their talents to God’s work in song, hoping to win souls for God’s kingdom. Recently after many prayers God lead good friends Dennis and Jamie Esteb to become a part of The Tiptons. Jamie and Dennis are a great blessing to The Tiptons. They attended church with Dan and Lesa while they were growing up. Dennis plays bass and Jamie plays piano. With Dennis, Jamie, Dan, Lesa and Virginia make up; The Tipton’s.
Our purpose as The Tipton’s is to promote God’s love and his Great Plan of Salvation, for we truly feel the Lord Jesus is returning very soon! God grant that we may be a blessing and inspiration to all whom that we are fortunate to minister to.
Our precious husband and dad Jack Tipton departed this life to be with the Lord on March 7th 2009 after a long battle with Alzheimers. God blessed dad with a natural talent for music and singing. He inspired us to continue on with his ministry. He was loved very much and is missed very much.
