I think most of us are aware of the Bontragers on here. If not, they can be found at http://bontragerfamilysingers.com/ The Bontragers have their first engagement (I believe). Their son is getting married to a girl named Carolina Bowers. I clicked on the link the Bontrager family provided on their blog post and I was surprised to see what felt like a carbon copy of their family. Another bus traveling, mega family of singers. Have fun down the rabbit hole- http://bowersbus.blogspot.com As a side note- how do mega families like this do it? How can they literally make a living out of being traveling singers? I know the Bontragers also own and operate a farm....but this family....my mind is perplexed.
I know the Bontragers have a bus too, but that looks like the Duggar bus to me. The Bontragers have been on a Duggar episode and the families know each other. The Bontragers (who do ATI and VF activities) may be image conscious enough for a filmed Duggar courtship. Interesting.......
lilith posted a topic in Quiver Full of DuggarsI came across this pic on the Bontrager family blog and thought people may be interested. The Bontrager blog is mainly about PR for their singing and pretty shots of kids, so not particularly snarkworthy, but they endorse ATI, Vision Forum, Above Rubies, the Pearls and all the usual suspects. .bontragersingers.blogspot.com.au/search?updated-max=2012-05-16T10:09:00-05:00&max-results=7 ETA- I am really bad with links, esp on iPad. It links to a page on their blog, you need to scroll down a little for ATI photos. Edited to break link
I've seen this family's name connected with the Bates and Duggars so I looked them up. Not many surprises. The youtube videos of the family singing are okay, nothing great. Their main strength is that they can actually play musical instruments. I found this on their website. bontragerfamilysingers.com/Beliefs.html number 3 and 4 under their list of ten church goals What do they mean by adapting to their husbands? That sounds like something the Pearls would write. How does the church teach someone to love their husband and children? Here is number 8 ) There is no goal of providing food for the needy outside your own church. From the same page, this is how to build godly generations. On the plus side, at least they include that the husband should be a servant leader but the wife is still suposed to be submissive. I'm confused how the woman is supposed to learn to make appeals to the husband so that he can grow in being noble. What does that even mean? How do they decide when a child obeys his parents because he loves god instead of being terrifed of a beating? I don't see the Duggars marrying any of the Bontragers. John David would hate performing and his family needs his sisters to care for the babies. Like the Duggars, The Bontrangers make money off their children so although they might bring someone into the singing group but I don't see them letting anyone leave. Here is their store http://www.bontragerfamilysingers.com/Store.html edited. I changed the title of the thread because I discussed the Duggars also and I wanted to reflect the subject better
