April Update 2023

Jesus Has Risen!

I hope you have been enjoying the build-up to tomorrow’s celebration of Jesus’ resurrection. Join me at the Mount Hermon Conference Center’s Victory Circle at 6:30am for their Sunrise Service (our usual gathering at the Ponderosa Lodge Cross is closed for reconstruction). This week has been a reflection on what drove Jesus to the cross, our seperation from God. We need a Savior. I led worship for a gathering of four churches last night in Santa Clara during Good Friday and it was sobering to share communion as Jesus did before he went to the cross. “Remember me, my life given for you, and the New Covenant of my life in you.” On Easter, Jesus conquered death and, not only completely forgave us of our sin, but empowers us to live in His resurrection victory. May you experience His life in you today and everyday!

The ministry momentum for Heartfelt Music Ministry is creating an astounding influence in keeping with our Mission Statement: Leading others toward intimacy with God and excellence in artistry. We have just selected the worship team for next year at Valley Christian Schools in San Jose. What a joy to train these students to encourage 2300 students in worship during chapels. This winter and spring, I have been training musicians and leading worship for San Jose Christian Reformed Church and San Ramon Presbyterian Church. I’m continuing to mentor through private lessons in-person and through Zoom. I’ve been preparing and producing the Mount Hermon Summer Concert Series, which is shaping up to be an inspiration for those who attend. We’ll have seven concerts this summer. Mark your calendars and join in the fun!

  • 6/24 – Buddy Greene, Jeff Taylor and Ron Block
  • 7/1 – Southern Raised
  • 7/8 – Veritas
  • 7/15 – Nicole Nordeman
  • 7/22 – The King’s Brass
  • 7/29 – Michael O’Brien
  • 8/5 – Phillips, Craig & Dean

I hope you have been able to enjoy my new album, Encore. Visit the HearNow.com website to access links to Spotify, Apple Music, iTunes, Amazon, Pandora, etc. Check out all my products available at the Heartfelt Music website.

Thank you for your continued support and prayers!


Family Time

I was able to spend a few day in Oregon visiting my son, daughter-in-law, and grand-daughter a couple of weeks ago. It was fun being together amidst the combination of snow, rain, and sunny days. They are so precious. I was able to be a handyman for a few days.


Private Lessons

October Update 2022

Ministry Journal, Reggie's Journey, Upcoming Events No Comments


New Album and You

Encore is my new album! This last summer, I wanted to write new songs and a couple of medleys that focus on God’s love and the amazing presence of Jesus in us. Encore is a French word that means “more” or “again.” It’s known for a reappearance or additional performance demanded by an audience. The idea is that after 85 songs written throughout my life there are more songs coming out. On the Encore album, there’s a new worship song, an instrumental, songs for my son and grand-daughter, an intimate prayer, two medleys of my popular songs, and a song about working through conflicts at work.


  • I’ll Worship with My Life
  • God’s Love Medley (No Greater Love, All for You, Happy in Your Love)
  • You Pick Me Up
  • Hold Me
  • You Will Make a Way
  • Let’s Work it Out
  • Jesus in Me Medley (Christ Only Always, Living in Jesus, Jesus Lives in Me)
  • Time With You


We need $500 for cover art, worldwide streaming through CD baby, about 50 CDs through Disk Makers, copyright registration, and digital distribution through Gumroad. We will receive the amount donated even if we don’t reach the goal (some fees will be taken out). Because I am a ProTools certified instructor through Avid (ACI), I will be able to record at home at no cost.


The songs are of the same genre as my previous recordings with me singing and playing acoustic, electric and bass guitars. You will experience the same honesty and encouragement in Christ. Your donation will greatly help finish this project and influence others toward Christ through music. Visit the Indiegogo.com website to contribute.

New Album Entitled Encore

I’ve been writing songs this summer for a new album called Encore. I just finished the songwriting and arrangements, but now I need to record them and get them ready for publication. Hope to have it ready in time for Christmas.


Donate toward the Encore Album – Indiegogo

You can help complete the Encore album by donating through Indiegogo. All contributions go to Heartfelt Music Ministry toward the new album. Click on the thumbnail picture above and read all the details. Thank you for considering!

Singing to My Grand-Daughter

In September, Sherri and I visited our grand-daughter in Oregon as we helped my son and his wife move. It was so fun to sing to her the song I wrote for her using my son’s guitar. It’s called You Pick Me Up. The song will be on the Encore album.

Christmas Carol Sing Video

Merry Christmas! It’s the season to focus on the birth of Christ and celebrate God’s deep love for us with family and friends. One meaningful way to relive the coming of Jesus is through Christmas carols. “This, this is Christ the King…” Join me Sunday, December 12, at 5:00pm for a half hour of singing Christmas carols and meaningful songs. It’s a prerecorded video on my YouTube channel. I’ll be there to chat with you if you’d like to make a comment. Even if you can’t make it when it open’s at 5:00pm, you can watch it later and even use it to sing these carols when you gather with family and friends. Take a break from the hectic thrust of December and worship the Lord. We hope you are encouraged and drawn closer to Jesus!

May Update 2021

Ministry Journal, Reggie's Journey, Upcoming Events No Comments

New Summer Music

I’m working on the new Instrumental Guitar – Vol. 2 album and very excited about how it’s coming along. I’ve finished recording all ten songs and now mixing and mastering them. It’s a fun process, but it does take a lot of time. The new target date is mid-June to have it available.
Next week is the last week of the year for Valley Christian Schools. It’s been a crazy ride this year because of the pandemic, but the students and faculty weathered through it pretty well. Our worship team has one more performance this Thursday for the baccalaureate.
My oldest son and his wife will be visiting in person with us this weekend for the first time in months because of the pandemic. Also, my youngest son and his wife will be visiting with us in a few weeks for the first time in months as well. Sherri and I are so thankful for family and really look forward to finally getting together.
This summer, I’m organizing the live 2021 Summer Concerts at Mount Hermon with Phil Keaggy, Phillips Craig & Dean, Point of Grace, Veritas, Nichole Nordeman, Steve Green and Dick Tunney, and Buddy Greene & Jeff Taylor. The series is called Worship in the Redwoods and is totally free. You will need to have a ticket because he seating is limited, but the tickets are free through iTickets and there is seating inside the auditorium and outside (you’ll have to specify which one you’d like).
I’ll be teaching summer private lessons through Zoom on Thursday afternoons beginning June 10th and there are a few openings if you’re interested. Do you need a boost in your music endeavors? Private coaching is a great way to really kick into gear new motivations and disciplines to move forward in music journey.
Your prayers are appreciated so much! If not for the your support and others, we would not have as much impact through this ministry. Thank you! If you would like to make a donation to Heartfelt Music Ministry, visit our website at https://heartfeltmusic.org/about/support/ for the options available.
May your Memorial Day weekend be both fun and meaningful!


Instrumental Guitar – Vol. II Coming Album

This is my eighteenth album and it’s almost ready for distribution! It has such an interesting musical variety (easy rock, bluegrass, bossa nova, classical, light jazz). It’s primarily done with my Taylor 815CE acoustic guitar, but I also use an electric and nylon stringed guitars. There’s a story behind each of the songs and I’ll be giving more detail about all that in June.


Worship in the Redwoods at Mount Hermon

Two hours of encouraging music with some of your favorite Christian artists! Concert attendees can be with the artists inside with the artists or relax on the mezzanine patio and take in the night with beautiful music. Each program is free, but requires registration. The program begins at 6:30pm each Saturday evening. CLICK HERE for more information.


Getting Family Time This Summer

Sherri and I are excited to get together with our two sons and their wives after months of being careful about COVID19. All of us are feeling safer and the pandemic seems to be going in the right direction. We are looking forward to eating out, visiting local state parks, walking along the beach, and playing games in person.

Life Can Get So Complicated

So much has happened in the last couple of months. We had to evacuate Mount Hermon for ten days because of the fires. That was very scary thinking our home would go up in flames. Fortunately, the fires didn’t reach us and we are overflowing with thankfulness. Valley Christian School started back up in August and the teachers have been ordered to go back to the campus still teaching remotely and having a few students attend “live.” Fortunately, there are many COVID19 precautions set up for both the teachers and the students. I just enjoy teaching, whether online or in person. My sister had some health issues which took almost a month to sort out, but she is better now. I’ve had two extremely difficult interactions with close friends lately that really threw me for a loop. All this to say life can get so complicated! What gives me an absolutely hopeful perspective is knowing that the main character in this story is Jesus Himself. He knows the emotional uncertainty we felt with our home, the pandemic, family health, and friends. He cares about it all. It’s not complicated for Him. I can trust through it all and know He will work it out for good (Romans 8:28)! Thank you for your prayers and support through these changing times. I’m praying for you as well.


I’ll be doing another concert online Sunday, October 25, at 5:00. We just did some reorganizing of the Heartfelt Music Ministry Officers and Board of Directors and have added Lindsey Coates as the new Secretary. Also, after six months of financially doing pretty well, Heartfelt Music is experiencing some crunch and could use some help. See below for more details.


Online Concert with Reggie

I will be offering another online concert October 25, 5:00pm! This will be at my home with acoustic guitar and vocal tapestry. Join me as I share inspirational stories and music on Facebook LIVE. I would love to hear suggestions of songs you’d like to hear.  You can email me at [email protected]. My Facebook account: https://www.facebook.com/reggie.coates.1


New Heartfelt Music Secretary

I’m very happy to announce that Lindsey Coates is the new Secretary for Heartfelt Music Ministry! Not only is she super fun to be around, but she brings a wealth of experience professionally. She works in Advancement with George Fox University in Oregon and has a keen understanding of non-profit organizations.


Donating at This

This has been a difficult time for many businesses financially because of COVID19. Heartfelt Music Ministry has been maintaining for the past six months, but this month is experiencing difficulties too.

The Unpredictability of Life

“We can make our plans, but the LORD determines our steps.” Proverbs 16:9

So much life has happened since my last eNewsletter both personally and in ministry. Some things are planned, but other things just happen and surprisingly change our course. Nothing has been too drastic, but it’s the uncertainty of life that keeps us on our toes and keeps us turning to Jesus. I love Proverbs 16:9 because no matter how organized we are in looking ahead, it’s the Lord who guides us and creates our path.


The Summer Concerts at Mount Hermon went really well. Heartfelt Music® is in charge of organizing these and is setting up the summer of 2020 now. July 28th Sherri and I celebrated our 35th Wedding Anniversary. What a joy! In August, I started teaching again at Valley Christian Schools with a new junior high class called Video Fun. We are creating all kinds of videos using an iPad and iMovie and it has truly been fun. I’ve been the Worship Arts Director with Gilroy Presbyterian Church for three years through Heartfelt Music®. They have skillful and enjoyable musicians and we’ve just starting another season of choir. I’ve been rebuilding a deck in our back yard, which has taking much longer than anticipated. Just recently, PG&E turned off our power for no reason and we had to do without internet and sleep apnea machines for a couple of days. Life is unpredictable, but God is in control! We experience His love and faithfulness every day.


Thank you for your prayers and continued encouragement in Heartfelt Music@ ministry. May the gracious love of God fill you thoroughly as you “draw near to God, with a sincere heart, in full assurance of faith” (Hebrews 10:22a


Summer Concerts

Inspiring Summer Concerts

The Mount Hermon Summer Concert Series was a such a ministry success! We ended with Phil Keaggy, Aaron Shust, and Point of Grace in July. We are already working on next summer and have a phenomenal line up including Phillips, Craig, and Dean.


35th Wedding Anniversary

35th Wedding Anniversary

Sherri and I have been married for 35 years! Right after the Point of Grace concert in July, we took our boys and their wives to Shadowbrook restaurant to celebrate. It’s so fulfilling to reflect on all the wonderful experiences God has brought us through.

July Update

I hope you are having an enjoyable Fouth of July weekend! It’s been great for me to work on new songs for new albums, writing out music for new music books, and organize songs for a new video series called Songs & Techniques. I’ll explain more in August. Personally, Sherri and I have been designing a new deck off the back of our house. The old one is falling apart and we need to fix it by the end of the summer.

Producing the seven concerts at Mount Hermon Christian Conference Center is the biggest thing for me this summer. This Saturday, we’ll have Buddy Greene in concert at 7:30pm. Jeff Taylor will be joining him. Don’t miss the next four free concerts and come early to enjoy an amazing buffet dinner. See below for more details.

Your gracious prayers and support are so much appreciated! Thank you for being involved in bringing positive progress and eternal results for every event and effort. May you have a wonderful rest-of-the-summer. Hope to see you at the concerts.

Amazing Ministry for Fall

The summer wrapped up beautifully after 8 concerts at Mount Hermon Christian Conference Center. I’ll be the Concert Coordinator again next summer and have an amazing line-up: Sanctus Real (6/15), The King’s Brass (6/22), Fernando Ortega (6/29), Buddy Greene (7/6), Phil Keaggy (7/13), Aaron Shust (7/20), and Point of Grace (7/27).

We just finished our first quarter at Valley Christian School and it is so fulfilling to train and mentor these students. My Music Technology class is producing a free concert Friday with singer/songwriter Anja Kotar and guitarist Dimitri Morris. You can hear her songs on Apple Music HERE. We just finished our Spiritual Emphasis week where the faculty went to Mount Hermon for a day of spiritual renewal and the student body spent four days with inspiring chapels. Our worship team this year has students and adults playing on the same team, which has really raised the bar. I’m having fun with my four guitar classes. There is even a guitar club during lunch that I am advising.
My oldest son, Brandon, got married in September to Kristin and went to Whales for their honeymoon. Now both of my boys are married and enjoying their new adventures with their spouses. Sherri and I are now empty-nesters with a 120-pound Bernese Mountain Dog…having fun!
I’m still the Worship Arts Director with Gilroy Presbyterian Church and President of the Community Group at Mount Hermon. Life is full, but I’m doing what I love. Lots of ministry, lots of relational interconnection, and lots of teaching/training.
I appreciate your continued prayers and support! You inspires the things I do to have eternal results. God is doing a great work! If you would like to help Heartfelt Music® financially, click HERE.

Brandon & Kristin Are Married!

Brandon & Kristin had a wonderful wedding on September 20 in Berkeley. I was able to do the officiating and felt so honored to help tie the knot. They went to Whales for their honeymoon and are happily employed in great companies. Brandon is working at Facebook with concept design for 3D art with Oculus.
