Music Ministry Goals for 2020, and Beyond!

 

POSTED FEBRUARY 17, 2020. 

I have been doing a lot of research on how to expand a music ministry. One of the first steps is to write down your goals.  Here are mine for 2020 and beyond. 

1.  But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you...Matthew 6:33 King James Version (KJV) ( I always use the KJV of the Bible when quoting Scripture online because it is in the public domain.)

2. Trust God and seek His will for music ministry.

3. Practice and rehearse, both guitaring and singing. 

4. Re-write some of the old songs and write some new songs.

5. 75 gigs a year.

6. 2 Compassion sponsors for each gig or at least 100 per year.

7. Learn how to network,  build relationships, and work with others using music ministries to reach people for the gospel of Jesus Christ.   

What are your goals?

Instrumental Hymns - Played on the Guitar

From 1994 through 2019

In 1990, when I started my music ministry, I was an instrumental guitar player.

The songs on this playlist were recorded instrumentally on acoustic guitars beginning in 1994.

Tracks 1 and 2 are from "I Will Arise!" - 2019.

Tracks 3 -7, 16 are from "Lasting Love and Lasting Peace" - 2003.

Tracks 8 - 12, 17 are from "To Know You" - 1998.

Tracks 13 - 15 are from "Come Into The Light" - 1994.

On tracks 16 and 17 I use an Ebow on my guitar.

I Will Arise! and Instrumental Hymns

Free Downloads!

I just updated my music players. You can find free downloads of music from the I Will Arise! album, as well as free downloads from the Instrumental Hymns album.

Instrumental Hymns is a collection of the hymns I have played over the years. The hymns are played on an acoustic guitar and two songs use an Ebow on the guitar!

Risen Today - Passion and Easter Cantata

Risen Today - A Passion and Easter Cantata was written in the late 2000's to early 2010s.

The Risen Today - A Passion and Easter Cantata is about the events of Jesus' life from Palm Sunday through Easter Sunday.

Keith has written 10 vocal songs for the cantata, as well as plays instrumental hymns that point to the cross of Jesus. There are 3 times where the people will sing along. 

Keith would love to come present the cantata at your church. Please click on the photo for more information, listen to song samples, and to see an outline of the cantata.

Risen Today - A Passion Play Cantata

The Passion and Resurrection of Jesus Christ are the most important events that has ever happened. I tried to capture this in the cantata called "Risen Today - A Passion Play Cantata" 

I  recently updated my web site with the 2020 version of the cantata. The cantata is a combination of scripture readings, instrumental hymns, congregational singing, and original compositions that are based on the facts of the Bible. 

I used several English translations of the Bible to come up with the most scripturally accurate songs possible.

I love to present the concert at churches, especially during Holy Week. I am available to present the concert on Palm Sunday, Maundy Thursday, Good Friday, Easter Saturday, and Easter morning to local churches. 

I don't mind traveling. If your church would be interested in hosting me for this event, please feel free to contact me. 

Please click on the photograph for music, the outline, the introduction and more information about the concert.

Thanks, Keith
