The Ambassadors endeavor to spread the Gospel through a Spirit-directed selection of gospel songs, commentaries and personal testimonies. The main focus of each appearance is directed toward encouraging the believers and reaching lost souls for the Kingdom of God.
Beginning in 1966, The Ambassadors began while the four original members were attending college in Tahlequah, Oklahoma. Over the years, there have been a few personnel changes, and today, Bill Chilcoat is the sole original member singing with the group.
Bill Chilcoat sings the baritone harmony part primarily, but he has also sung bass on several of the group's recordings. Bill's love for singing gospel music began as a child while attending church. During high school, he was a member of a boy's quartet and sang at various school functions, assemblies and baccalaureates. While in college, Bill helped organize a "Chi Alpha" choir, composed of college youth at the Assembly of God Church in Tahlequah, OK. He later joined with three of his college mates to form The Ambassadors. They traveled on weekends singing at church services, revivals, camp meetings and youth rallies. Bill resides near Mounds, Oklahoma.

Mike resides in Broken Arrow, Oklahoma with his wife, Lori, and his youngest son, Brett.
