United Through Faith (Mathis)
Upon returning from a Steubenville Youth Conference in 2011, brothers Orlando “Rolley” and Ricky Gonzales began to experience a tug in their hearts; this tug led them to leave their focus on secular music and to begin using their musical talents on contemporary praise and worship music. Through this, they hoped that they could help people experience God as profoundly and real as they did. Within a few months, they invited fellow musician Gabriella Garibay to join them. Thus, United Through Faith “UTF” was born. The new found name embraced their vision- their vision of uniting the faithful to Christ and his Church through their music and message. Within the last several years, UTF has written a few songs, led praise and worship at youth retreats, concerts, conferences, Mass and Adoration for several surrounding parishes.
