Spring into Action

This Spring has been marked by action – eternally significant action! It has been busier than usual, but so fulfilling seeing God renew and transform lives because of our ministry. I have been leading worship for San Jose Christian Reformed Church and San Ramon Presbyterian Church and will continue in the coming months. Valley Christian Schools has been coming to a crescendo this last week and is wrapping up this coming week (The photo above is of my Intro to Guitar and Electric Bass class). I will be teaching private music lessons in-person and through Zoom this summer beginning June 22 on Thursday afternoons. Let me know if you are interested.


I will be performing live with a Summer Home Concert Sunday, June 25, at 5:00pm, with songs from my new album, Encore, and special requests. Let me know what songs you’d like to hear. Visit the website to hear the songs on Encore and access links to Spotify, Apple Music, iTunes, Amazon, Pandora, etc. Check out all my products available at the Heartfelt Music Ministry website. May you be refreshed and drawn closer to God through these songs!


I’ve been preparing and producing the Mount Hermon Summer Concert Series, which will begin Saturday, June 24, at 6:30pm. All the concerts are free, but you must register for a ticket with iTickets. We’ll have seven amazing concerts this summer.


I am so grateful for you! Let me know what would encourage you and how I can craft ministry to help you. Thank you for your continued prayers and support.


Memorial Day Encouragement

My dad, George Coates, fought in WWII at Wake Island and was taken as a POW for 4 years. My son, Brandon Coates, painted a creative image of the WWII Memorial in Washington DC while working at Sledghammer Games on their Call of Duty: WWII Game. May it honor veterans and remember their service for our freedom.


Valley Christian School Final Push

The VCS Guitar II & III classes, as well as the Worship Team, went busking on Pacific Avenue in Santa Cruz last month…such a good experience! All of my classes have been working toward the climax of this last week. It’s been fun teaching guitar for HS and video for JH. I’ve enjoyed developing devotional videos for the faculty this year.


Summer Home Encore Concert

It’s been a while since I have done a live home concert. Join me for a Summer Home Concert Sunday, June 25, at 5:00pm, with songs from my new album, Encore, and special requests. Let me know what songs you’d like to hear by emailing me at [email protected]. You can hear clips of each song on the album Encore at
