Below are some videos I've run across that I've found to be a blessing. Be sure to double-click so you can view the larger screen...

My grandparents were married for 77 years. And one of the greatest gifts my father gave to me before he died was his love and faithfulness to my mom for over 60 yrs. Here's a moving song about staying by one of my favorite artists...

 An excellent message from Pastor Tim Keller on The Reason for God.

Autumn Ablaze

Forget Andy Williams, THIS is the most wonderful time of the year! When God breaks out all the rest of the crayons in the box. The crisp air and low humidity. The harvest moons. The sweaters. The football. The homecoming bonfires. The Fall Classic. The pumpkins & hayrides. (Ok I'll admit, the raking leaves part can get old after a while. :-) But still... there's just something profoundly beautiful, romantic and poetic about the fall.

And appropriately, as this is "harvest" season, there are a number of ministry events coming up. I'll be leading worship for two Wednesday night services at Calvary Chapel Delco on 10/2 and 10/30. On Friday, 10/18, I'll be flying solo for an intimate coffeehouse appearance at Central Presbyterian Church in Downingtown, PA from 7-9pm. (However there's a little rumor going around that a certain beautiful young singer I used to sing and record with may be joining me for that one :-).

On Saturday, 10/19, I'll be leading worship and sharing some things our family learned through the life and home-going of our daughter Amanda at Joni & Friend's Disabilities Summit at Calvary Church in Lancaster, PA. This will be a special one day equipping conference for churches & families interested in being a blessing to those with disabilities. It's not too late to sign up, btw!!

On Sunday, 10/20, I'll be singing God's praise with my church family at CCDC once again for our Compassion Weekend. Click HERE to see all the opportunities to serve and please pray about getting involved. Love to serve with you!

And then on Friday, 10/25, at 5:30pm, I have the joy of teaming up with longtime friend, Pastor Al Sones, of Good News Church in Mechanicsburg, PA. He and the Acts 11:12 Team will be hosting an exciting church planting banquet with guest speaker David Harvey of the Mt Bethel Project. Pastor Al has asked me to lead a time of corporate worship and special music for this ministry event. It will be held at Genetti's in Hazleton, PA and tickets are $20.

Your Support

Your gifts of support to help this music ministry are so greatly appreciated, as they help thousands of people each year come to hear and sing the good news of Jesus Christ. It's all about worship.

As John Piper rightly said, "Missions is not the ultimate goal of the church. Worship is. Missions exists because worship doesn't. Missions begins and ends with worship. When the flame of worship burns with the heat of God's true worth, the light of missions will shine to the darkest peoples on earth."

The Lord is using this music ministry to bring His light into the dark places, the broken places, the hopeless places. Your prayerful support helps me go wherever the Lord would have me serve. It also helps fund new recordings so they don't come from our family budget. And your gifts can be tax-deductible by following these instructions HERE.

If you've been blessed by this music ministry and would like to support me in the work God is doing, I would be so honored to team with you. Thank you!!

Upcoming Events

Apparently, another snow storm of the century is on the way. (I think the last phrase they used was "storm of a lifetime"). But should the roads be accessable, on Sunday, January 24th, I'll be back with the church family of Goshen Baptist in West Chester, PA. Pastor Peter Nelson will be taking us verse-by-verse through the book of Revelation. And unlike the hyberbole of our weather prognosticators, these prophecies will assuredly be coming true! Service times 8:30am & 11am.

Then on Wednesday night, January 27th, at 7pm and again on Sunday morning, January 31st, I'll be with my brothers and sisters at Calvary Chapel of Delta. Service times 9am & 11am.

Join us as Pastor Doug McClean explores the beginnings of the early church as seen in the book of Acts, and the power of the Holy Spirit. Come and experience the amazing things He's doing today!

 

February 5-7

Couples  Retreat  at  Spruce  Lake

Mark your calendars for the first weekend in February, book your tickets and come get away with your spouse to beautiful Spruce Lake Retreat in the Poconos! This will be a time of strengthening and renewal, of refreshing and laughter. A time to learn and grow together. As Scott the lawn expert would say: Feed your marriage... feed it!

I'll be leading worship for the sessions, and joined by the husband and wife team, Heidi & Brad Mitchell, co-founders of "Build Your Marriage" Ministry. Don't miss this opportunity to bless your marriage, your children and grandchildren! February 5-7, 2016 at Spruce Lake Retreat.

Previous  Conferences... 

Back in May, our band had the honor of backing worship leader Nadine Maenza at the Women's Iron Sharpens Iron conference at Carlisle Evangelical Free Church (Carlisle, PA). We'll be with her once again for the Women's Iron Sharpens Iron conference at Calvary Church in Souderton, PA on October 10th. Below are some pics from the event. Here we are joined by great guitarist and all-around funny guy, Gary Livesay, from the Mary James trio.

 

Thank you for your prayers! Lives changed forever by the transforming power of the gospel. Below are some pics from the MEN'S Iron Sharpens Iron national equipping conference at Cedar Crest Bible Fellowship (Allentown, PA) we led in April!
