A Summer Bursting with Music Ministry

Are you ready for summer? I’m excited about all the music endeavors through Heartfelt Music® Ministry available to encourage you spiritually and musically.
.
This week wraps up my year with Valley Christian Schools. It was a very productive year as the students learned about songwriting, recording, and being stretched toward excellence in musical technique and a strong character. Going through the book The Worshiping Artist by Rory Noland was particularly poignant in learning about worship leading. We had performances in chapels, leading worship for Los Altos Christian School, leading Christmas carols for the Mount Hermon Community dinner, and even busking in Santa Cruz. We had to make changes and flex with the many COVID-19 surprises, but we made it through with a sense of accomplishment. It was a fulfilling year for me as Heartfelt Music’s Mission Statement was in full swing: Leading others toward intimacy with God and excellence in artistry.

I’ll be doing another online FACEBOOK LIVE Home Concert Sunday, June 26, 5:00pm PST. I’ll be sharing a few songs from a coming new album of mine called Encore. It will be an uplifting hour with new songs and familiar requested songs as well. It will be on the Heartfelt Music® Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/reggieheartfeltmusic.

 

Busking in Santa Cruz with VCHS

Busking is basically street performing in public. I took the Valley Christian High School Guitar 2 & 3 class as well as the Worship Team to Pacific Avenue in Santa Cruz to perform on the street in front of those passing by. Stopping at Burger for lunch and a visit to the Boardwalk, we had a blast!

 

Summer Concerts at Mount Hermon

The Foto Sisters will begin the seven week concert series on Saturday, June 18th. Attendees can be inside with the artists, or relax on the mezzanine patio and take in the surrounding redwood forest while enjoying the beautiful music. All concert programs are open to the public without charge.

 

Music Training & Private Lessons

Would you like to improve your musical abilities? I will be starting summer private lessons on Tuesday, May 31. There are 10 sessions of training and coaching in guitar, singing, songwriting, music theory, performance practices, or any combination you’d like. Enhance your skills!

Resurrection Transformation

I hope you are enjoying this Easter season and enjoying a break! I’ll be leading music at Mount Hermon’s Sunrise Service this Sunday and hope you can join the celebration.

 

Reflecting on Good Friday and Easter Sunday, we know the crucifixion of Christ and his resurrection took place…it’s a part of history. Jesus was crucified in a horrific way and truly paid for the price for sin on our behalf. And Jesus did raise from the dead, conquering death and reigns in heaven.

 

But, these events didn’t end there. Unfortunately, there is a crucifixion mind-set that permeates our world today. Some people reveal a mind-set determined to be destructive and hurt others. Fortunately, because Jesus rose from the dead, there is an ongoing resurrection transformation available to anyone giving their life to Christ. This resurrection transformation empowers us to have a supernatural love, joy, and peace that transcends the crucifixion mind-set. As Jesus said, “The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it more abundantly” (John 10:10).

 

This abundant life in Christ is what has given me the strength to get through my parents passing when I was young, a damaged nerve in high school, spiritual abuse by church leaders, the complexity of adopting an orphan, and experiencing neighborhood bullies. God has taught me not to fear, but trust that he will work all things out for good (Romans 8:28). I hope you are encouraged by this and allow God to give you a lifestyle of resurrection transformation.

 

March Hartland Men’s Retreat

Hartland Christian Camp’s “Man Camp” was a blast! It was great speaking with the guys over meals and being uplifted as we worshiped the Lord together. I even had four of them help me lead the worship during the last two sessions. I put together a devotional with the guys called “Getting Back to Joy.” You can watch it on YouTube HERE.

 

VCHS Worship Team in Los Altos

The Valley Christian high school Worship Team led two chapels at the Los Altos Christian Schools’ elementary and junior high/high school. I was proud of how they skillfully led the music and shared encouraging introductions before each song. Our drummer, Ashton, even gave a meaningful message on Forgiveness.

 

Easter Sunrise at the Cross

Join me for this resurrection celebration at the summit of Mount Hermon. A 24-foot-high cross marks the location for the Easter Sunrise Service, just up the hill from Mount Hermon’s Ponderosa Lodge. The view over Scotts Valley and San Lorenzo Valley is spectacular! I’ll be leading worship, pastor Ed Snedeker is the speaker, and Ron Taylor is the host.

 

Upcoming Events

April 17 (Sun)
Reggie will be leading worship at Mount Hermon Christian Conference Center’s Easter Sunrise Service at the Cross. It is located at Ponderosa Lodge, Mount Hermon, CA 95041.

 

June 18 – July 30 (Sat)

New Baby Rory Noland Ruminate on Grace written out

Welcoming the New Year

Happy 2022! Hope you are healthy and enjoying the restart of a new year. We are so excited that our son Austin and Lindsey had their cute baby girl Magdalene (Maggie), born January 15th, 7lbs 9oz! They are doing well and we’re so pumped to be grandparents (see picture below).

 

Heartfelt Music is beginning this new year with a great sense of anticipation! Ministry is continuing through mentoring young musicians at Valley Christian Schools, teaching private lessons to students ages 12 to 65, helping churches with their worship ministries, and leading worship at various conference centers. I’m even working on a new album called Encore with new songs to inspire your faith in Christ.

 

We’re excited to offer new training opportunities for worship leaders, musicians, and guitarists through free online streaming videos. These will open up throughout 2022 with various helpful topics such as:

 

  • Worship Leading Insights
  • Guitar Playing Insights
  • Music Theory Insights
  • Spiritual Growth Insights

 

Our first series will be the Worship Leading Insights with a new video posted every Friday. Our first one with Rory Noland opened Friday, January 21, and is available at https://youtu.be/iqGo5Rz6QxA. These are interviews with prominent worship leaders across the country and experienced worship leaders throughout the San Fransisco Bay Area speaking through Zoom to the Valley Christian High School worship team. Our first one is with Rory Noland who has led worship in megachurches and various conference centers all over the world. He wrote the popular books The Heart of the Artist, The Worshiping Artist, and Transforming Worship. Rory and I met in the Netherlands at a conference called The Christian Artist Music Seminars in Europe. We were both teaching workshops and I was impressed with his friendliness and wealth of experience. You will benefit from his insightful sharing.

 

Join me Sunday, February 6 at 5:00pm for a Home Concert Refresh on my YouTube channel putting together the best of my previous online Home Concerts and being available to chat with you during the streaming event. Even if you can’t make it when it open’s at 5:00pm, you can watch it later. We need all the encouragement we can get during these difficult times. I’ll be posting the link soon.

A Positive Perspective

Happy Thanksgiving! I hope this weekend is a relaxing and refreshing respite for you. There’s so much to be thankful for. Though there’s been a tremendous amount of hardships and struggles over this last year, it’s essential to keep a positive perspective. “I will give thanks to You, Lord, with all my heart; I will tell of all Your wonders. I will be glad and rejoice in You; I will sing praise to Your name, O Most High” Psalm 9:1.

I was so thankful to lead worship in-person last month and do music for a special memorial service at Saratoga Retirement Community last week. I’m looking forward to doing more events in-person in 2022. I’ve been sharing online with Home Concerts and Worship through Facebook LIVE, which now is on my YouTube channel. I’ll be creating a special Christmas video to show Sunday, December 12th, full of carols from my Christmas album I Wish You a Mary Christmas, and inspirations to focus on Jesus’ incarnation.

Check out below a Grateful Heart Devotional Video, how you can help Heartfelt Music® during Giving Tuesday, November 30th, and Two Special Product Bundles we are offering now.

We appreciate your continued prayers and support for Heartfelt Music Ministry! We continue to influence others toward intimacy with God and toward artistic excellence.

 

A Grateful Heart Devotional Video

I create the weekly online devotional videos for the VCS Conservatory of the Arts. I want to share this week’s video called A Grateful Heart. I hope you are encouraged by the three speakers and an inspiration by Sarah Young from her book Jesus Calling. You can watch previous devotionals by viewing the playlist HERE. Spiritual nourishment is of utmost importance to have a daily positive perspective.

Making a Huge Difference

We are embarking on a hopeful new season this fall. I’ve started teaching again at Valley Christian School a few weeks ago and already the circumstances are so much more encouraging than last year. Meeting in person makes me appreciate the meaningful interactions each day that were so limited online. In high school, I’m teaching 35 guitar students and 11 members on the worship team. In junior high, I’m teaching Video Fun with 18 students. The students are such a joy to be with.

 

Sunday, September 12 – 5:00pm, I’ll be doing an online concert sharing songs from my new Instrumental Guitar, Vol. 2 album as well as other songs. The concert will be on the Heartfelt Music® Facebook page. You can view my last concert by clicking here.

 

My music is available on all the streaming platforms (Spotify, Amazon Music, Apple Music, YouTube, etc.) The physical CDs are available on our website. You can hear how each song sounds at a special page with HearNow.com and these pages will point you to a number of streaming platforms that carry my albums. Check out:

 

 

After a wonderful summer concert series at Mount Hermon called Worship in the Redwoods, the leadership team reflected on how each artist included significant times to worship and allow God to transform lives. They went very well and we had record attendance. Producing the concerts and seeing such a positive response was so fulfilling for me. We met today to begin planning on next year’s lineup.

 

Thank you for all your support and encouragement over the years through prayer, attending events, and purchasing our products. Your contributions to Heartfelt Music Ministry make a huge difference! You are the reason for our success in touching people’s lives.

 

Due to some recent expenses, our need for your financial support has increased. Would you prayerfully consider making a gift to Heartfelt Music Ministry today? Your gift, no matter the size, will help advance our mission and make a significant impact.
