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.

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.
Phil Keaggy Is Coming to San Jose April 14
Valley Christian School is bringing Phil Keaggy in 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). Get the word out!
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.
