Today, Greater Vision is the most awarded trio in the history of gospel music. The Singing News Magazine and the Southern Gospel Music Association have named the group Gospel Music's Favorite Trio.
The group has also received numerous honors, including Song of the Year, Album of the Year, Video of the Year and Artist of the Year.
Rodney Griffin, baritone and songwriter, has been named Songwriter of the Year annually since 1998, as well as Favorite Baritone.

Greater Vision is heard by thousands of people every day, both on traditional Christian stations and on Internet radio.
The group is also seen regularly on the In Touch television program, hosted by Dr. Charles Stanley, and has also been featured on the Gaither Gospel Series.
Greater Vision continues to pursue excellence each time its members enter the recording studio. The group's latest, project, "The Only Way," which includes such favorites as "Like I Wish I'd Lived" and "I Know A Man Who Can," has already been nominated for Album Of The Year."
