Prayer Opportunities

There’s been a flurry of activity around the office the last couple of weeks! Students arrive this Thursday for Keynote’s upcoming summer missions project for college students. They will receive three weeks of training in music evangelism and then tour throughout the US to share Christ through their concerts. I would love to have your prayer support during this busy time!

  • The Keynote Summer Project always brings heightened spiritual warfare with it. Our adversary doesn’t want students to grow in their faith and ability to minister, so he usually does all he can to prevent it! Please pray that all of us, staff and students alike, will put on the spiritual armor spoken of in Ephesians 6:10-20, and please claim the promise of 2 Thessalonians 3:3 for us: “But the Lord is faithful, and he will strengthen and protect you from the evil one.”(NIV)
  • Our summer project gives us the opportunity to train more Keynote staff how to teach our training materials. This is important because we are being asked by more and more overseas ministries to provide training for their staff and students.  Pray for me and several other experienced trainers as we coach these new teachers.
  • Some of the internationals who were hoping to attend the project will not be able to do so. Please pray for those who are still coming: Isaac Yedla and Tom Frakes from India, and Oscar Nduwarugia from Kenya. Pray for safe travel and that God will use their experiences here to equip them for music ministry in their home countries.
  • I take my final this week for the theology class I’ve been taking this semester. Please pray for me as I finish the assigned reading and study for the exam.
  • Please pray that I would walk closely with the Lord and minister in His strength this summer, not my own.

Thank you for praying!

Keynote Ministers to the Military

Keynote band blueskynine recently ministered at Ft. Jackson. Bassist Dan Bongard wrote,

On Saturday night we played at the stadium for around 300 new recruits… I will say they thoroughly enjoyed the show and were all ears for the gospel. 7 received Christ , 34 were interested in talking to someone about spiritual things, and 26 were interested in a bible study.

On Sunday we played for their chapel service and it was full. They are beginning a new training cycle which adds to the numbers, and it’s good to reach out to them early on. Again there were about 300 in attendance… The results were 16 starting a relationship with Christ, 2 rededications, 44 interested in a spiritual conversation and 51 desiring involvement in a bible study.

Giants of Silence performed at Ft. Knox, and guitarist Sam Leo wrote,

…we played at a Sunday morning chapel service for over 600 army recruits, all of whom were in different phases of their basic training. A lot of these young men joined the army to escape from a bad home situation. Spiritually speaking, the chaplains told us that some recruits will say they’re atheists, agnostics, or even Wiccans, but the truth is, they usually don’t know what those words actually mean. They don’t really know what they even believe, and they’re starting to think they’ve gotten themselves into more than they bargained for…But they’re also doing a lot of thinking about their lives, and are asking questions and looking for someone to talk to.

“…When all was said and done, we got 438 comment cards back. Around 90 people said they were interested in studying the Bible with someone, about 80 people said they wanted to talk more about spiritual things, and 40 people made decisions to start a relationship with Christ!!!!!
