March Ministry Update

Ministry Journal, Upcoming Events No Comments

 

Keep Learning!

It is so important to keep learning and never too late to go for more education. Earning a BA and Teaching Credential in Music has been such an advantage for me in performing and training others. To go a step further, I will be pursuing a Masters Degree in the coming months (more below). Next month, Phil Keaggy is coming to San Jose and tickets are now on sale for Tuesday, April 14, at 7:00 (more below). The BASS Convention was a huge success last weekend (more below). Thank you for your continued prayers and care for Heartfelt Music Ministry.

 

Bay Area Church Workers Conference

It was a joy to be involved with the BASS Convention last week (the Bay Area Sunday School convention is training for church workers who volunteer their time in every area of church ministry). I am on the board and organize the workshops for the Worship, Music & Drama section. Peter Neumann was our Keynote for this section and did an outstanding job. I taught two workshops, Dynamic Guitar in Worship and Worship Organization with the iPad.

 

Masters Degree in Entertainment Business

I am very excited to continue my education in the field of Entertainment Business. Full Sail University has a wonderful 12-month program that will not only give me the most current and relevant education in Entertainment Business, but also land me a Masters Degree in the process. More than 30 years ago, Full Sail began as a dream to create a place where people could learn how to take their passion for entertainment and turn it into a career they love. This will help me in developing a new Contemporary Artist Program at Valley Christian School and give Heartfelt Music a cutting edge in equipping others for ministry.

 

Phil Keaggy Is Coming to San Jose April 14

Phil Keaggy is coming to Valley Christian School for a concert Tuesday, April 14, 2015, at 7:00pm. It’s open to everyone! Tickets are on sale through Vendini (CLICK HERE). Phil is one of the best guitar players in the world. Having someone of Phil’s skill level, genuine humility, and deep faith will inspire you and remind all who attend of God’s creative artistic beauty (watch his “True Believers” video). Heartfelt Music is joining with VCS to have Phil Keaggy share his passion in music and Christian faith. The concert is limited to 300 people, so don’t wait to get your tickets ($25 adults, $15 students). Tell a friend!

WorshipConsulting PhilKeaggyConcert VCSWorshipTeam

A Good Start for 2015!

We are over a month into the new year and off to a good start. January marked the restart of private lessons (20 students), ministry with Valley Christian Schools (click here to hear a remarkable song by the worship team), worship consulting with Trinity Presbyterian Church, and worship leading with Mariner’s Discovery Church (leading again this month). February continues to hold opportunities for Heartfelt Music to equip others and encourage in Christ.
.
In looking ahead, Phil Keaggy is coming to San Jose and tickets are now on sale for Tuesday, April 14, at 7:00 (more info below).
.
I appreciate your prayers in ministry and personally. I am exploring getting a Master’s Degree in Entertainment Business to help at Valley Christian Schools and Heartfelt Music Ministry. Also, as President of the Mount Hermon Community, we hope the new Executive Director of Mount Hermon Conference Center is a perfect fit for the camps and the community. Their final decision on this person is going to happen more sooner than later. It is so important to get a strong Christian and experienced leader in this position. Please, pray for these things.

Worship Consultation

It has been a joy working with the worship team at Trinity Presbyterian Church in Campbell! With two services and multiple teams, they have a wide offering of music styles and sounds. Worship consulting is tailored and designed to develop the skill of the musicians and leaders, enhance the corporate singing of the church, expand understanding of group worship dynamics, motivate a lifestyle of intimate worship, inspire confidence and expression, and build “team” unity with good communication. The musicians play together while I make observations to apply the methods discussed earlier. I can come to your church in order to work alongside you, your musicians and enhance your ministry.

Worship at Valley Christian High School

The worship team at Valley Christian High School is doing some outstanding ministry! The two High School bands have led the 1,400 students in worship during chapels every week. It’s been a delight to work with them, learn new songs, and see significant spiritual growth in the lives of the student body. You can hear and see a song they performed last week called Something New by the group For All Seasons on YouTube [CLICK HERE to view]. We just had our Spiritual Emphasis Week with Josh Riebock. His style of storytelling and being authentic was perfect to encourage the students and faculty all week.

A Season of Thanks

Happy Thanksgiving! We have reason to have thankful hearts at all times because of Jesus, “Rejoice in the Lord always, again I say rejoice!” (Philippians 4:4).  In addition, this Thanksgiving season inspires us to have an extra sense of gratitude which is the perfect preparation for Christmas right around the corner. May this be a most meaningful Thanksgiving for you, your family, and your friends.

I continue to teach about 20 guitar students, lead worship at various churches, and train through workshops and consulting. I’m setting up January events now, so let me know if I can join you or your church in some way. Wrapping up a semester at Valley Christian School which has been a rewarding ministry experience. My albums and music are available at our product page, You can also download them at iTunes, CD Baby, Rapsody, Amazon and hear excerpts as well.

There are so many things to be thankful for! I’m so thankful for my family who continues to inspire me and bring me joy; my friends both new and old who hold me accountable and spur me on to greater things; my co-workers at Valley Christian who work so hard to teach and equip a new generation of musicians and artists; for neighbors who are there when you need them; for all that God has provided; and for Jesus who continually brings eternal life to make living such an amazing experience!

Abundant_SunshineWorship at Campbell Christian Schoolphilkeaggy

God Will Have His Way

When hard times come our way, it’s easy to get caught up in the moment and lose hope. God knows. God cares. And God will make a way. Looking back on the many trials and hard times in my life, they were difficult to go through, but it was worth trusting Jesus and watching Him work “all things out for good.” I am confident that God is so powerful, come what may, He will have is way. We find renewed hope in Him.

 

Abundant Sunshine – New Instrumental Song

I wrote this new instrumental song with the joy of the Lord in mind. You can see it on YouTube by CLICKING HERE. This summer had some very bright, sunny days in Santa Cruz. One day, I was on the Weather Channel APP and saw where it sometimes reads “partly cloudy,” instead it read “abundant sunshine.” I thought this would be a great title to this song. One Saturday, as I was busking on Pacific Avenue in Santa Cruz, I played this song. A man stopped me and was very excited about the two capos and upbeat music.

 

Bay Area Ministry with VCS Worship Teams

Encouraging others through worshipful music and sharing a living faith is what the Valley Christian High School Worship Teams are experiencing this Fall. In September, we led worship at Campbell Christian Junior High School chapel and Valley Christian Junior High School chapel. In October, we led worship at San Jose Christian Reformed Church for two Sundays. It was not only inspirational for the congregation, but it was such a building time for our worship teams.

Seasons – The Change of the Fall

As summer is wrapping up for me and fall is just about to kick in, I’m so glad for each of the seasons of life. In the chorus of my song Seasons, God’s unchanging love is highlighted (click here to download the album Heartfelt Celebration):

.

 In the winter’s rest, the springtime’s beauty
The summer love, and the change of the fall
You’re the only reason that I’ve come this far
And through all of my seasons
Your changeless love holds on

Reggie in Concert National Worship Leader Conference Reggie at VBS

Encouraging Music!

I hope your 4th of July weekend has been a relaxing one! June has flown by but has been a good start to the summer. The National Worship Leader Conference was such a blessing as this is the first time they came to San Jose (June 17-19). It was great to see a number of my guitar students there. The picture above was taken Tuesday night with Israel Houghton and band. It was a refreshing night of worship. I led music for Community Presbyterian Church‘s Vacation Bible School a week ago which was a total success. Two graduates from Valley Christian High School joined the band with me, Christian Kolb on keys, and Alyssa McCoy leading vocals and hand motions. We had a blast! There were over 425 kids and over 250 volunteers to help make it a fantastic experience for the kids. Sarah Scott did a wonderful job putting together the whole event. Many kids grew closer to Jesus!

Summer Training Reggie in Concert Spring Recitals

Summer’s Here!

I hope this update finds your summer off to a good start! After the month of May being a long stretch for me at Valley Christian Schools, waking up daily at 5:00am, I’m now able to relax a little and sleep in. Of course, I’m still staying busy teaching private lessons, leading worship at various churches, and working on writing new songs. But, I also get time with family, gardening, fixing things, watching movies, playing games, playing tennis, and even doing more exercise. I thank God summer’s here!

During this month,  I held my student recitals, led worship at Bayside Church Woodland, and taught a Guitar Clinic for Bayside Church as well. What a great group of encouraging people. Peter Neumann is doing a great job as the worship pastor there. During the last week of June, I’ll be leading VBS music with a band for Community Presbyterian Church in Danville. With 400 kids and 280 volunteers, it’s quite a big production with lots of energy!

Free Song - RememberWoodland Guitar ClinicVCS Worship Team

Remember!

There are some things we don’t want to forget. We have symbols to remind us of important occasions like a wedding ring (this summer marks Sherri’s and my 30th Wedding Anniversary). This weekend also marks our 20th year of living in Mount Hermon. Memorial Day is a day of remembrance and it’s a special day for me. My dad was one of the 1,200 civilians on Wake Island (an architect in charge of the blueprints to build up the island). As WWII began, my dad was taken as a POW for all four years [a “good read” from my dad’s friend who was with him during that time is Jim’s Journey – A Wake Island Civilian POW’s Story].

When it comes to important things to remember, the Bible tells us to remember the Lord Jesus Christ: His life, His death, His resurrection, and His coming again (Matthew 26:26-29). Remember how deeply Jesus loves you! May He consume your life.

Thank you for your interest in what God is doing through Heartfelt Music Ministry. We’d like to give you the gift of a free digital download of my song “Remember” on the album Instrumental Guitar Volume 1 (CLICK HERE to download or just check out).

Life More Abundantly

In the wake of celebrating the resurrection of Jesus, His words echo even today reminding us that He brings life more abundantly, “The thief comes in order to steal, kill, and destroy; but I come that you might have life and have it more abundantly” (John 10:10). We don’t have to look very far to see how the evil one, the thief, daily works to steal, kill, and destroy. But, thank God, Jesus takes dead things and brings them back to life. He takes wounded people and brings restoration and healing. Not only does he bring abundant life, He brings life more abundantly than anything else! Feel lost? He is the Savior! Feel broken? He brings wholeness! Feel fear and unrest? He is the peace-giver! Feel depressed? He brings a deeper joy!

.

Turn to Jesus. Draw close to Him. Let Him put life back into your moment-by-moment experiences. “Trust in the Lord with all your heart. Do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him and He will make your paths straight” (Proverbs 3:4 & 5). Such a great reminder! [CLICK HERE to watch uplifting music videos]

.

Thank you for your support both prayerfully and financially. Your involvement is so encouraging and propels us forward toward effective ministry.

April Ministry

On April 12 & 13, I led worship with a great crew of musicians at Community Presbyterian Church‘s Video Cafe for Palm Sunday. It was a rich time of worship over three Palm Sunday services and fellowship as some of the musicians were friends going back 30 years. Private guitar lessons continue to flourish (a new student begins this week!). Valley Christian School has kept me so busy with classes both current and future which I love. They are adding a Guitar 2 class that I am developing the curriculum for. This week has been spring break and it’s so nice having free time!

 

July One-Time Guitar Lessons

I’m taking a break this summer from the regularly scheduled lessons, but will be teaching one-time discounted lessons throughout the S.F. Bay Area July 7-13 (Mon-Sun). All the available lessons are found on the Heartfelt Music Smart Events site. Right now, only the lessons in Los Altos and Mount Hermon are listed. The others will be listed soon. Sign up soon to spur you on to greater ability and skill. I will be performing a series of concerts as well that same week.
