TriBlessed’s mission is to reach the youth where they are (especially our young black men) and show them it is ok to have a Holy Ghost party and have fun praising the Lord.
TriBlessed is a gifted and anointed trio of biological brothers, residents of Forest Park, Ohio, a northern suburb of Cincinnati. The trio started as “The Stroud Brothers” which began ministering through song in 1996. As they matured in their faith and their gifts, they incorporated dance in 2000, puppetry in 2002, gospel rap in 2003, and drama in 2005.

As they continued to mature, it was revealed to change their name to “TriBlessed” which means:

▪ Blessed by the Holy Spirit with power to do greater things than these. John 14:12
