Summer Project News


This year’s Summer Project students arrived in May for training followed by nearly three weeks of evangelistic concerts with their bands. But they didn’t have to wait until they went on tour to share the gospel: they had an outreach day their first week here.

  • One team left behind most of their evangelistic materials at the Keynote office, but they saw God bring just the right verses to their minds as they shared the gospel with people.
  • Silja, our student from Germany, was in a mall when she heard two girls speaking German behind her! She shared the gospel with them and they were very interested in the message and in coming to the dress rehearsals.
  • A local high school student named Tyler trusted Christ with Ryan, who was sharing his faith for the first time!

The student bands are returning from their evangelistic tours with many stories of God at work.  I’ll share some of those with you in my next letter.

International Training: The Koreans

Coaching one of the Koreans in stage communication.

Campus Crusade for Christ in Korea has a well-established Music Ministry that uses worship music. In April, twenty-two of their staff came to Keynote to learn how we use secular music for evangelism.
Although we took them through the same communication training we give to Americans, our goal was not to make their ministry look like ours. Instead, we continually challenged them to apply the principles in creative ways suited to the Korean culture.

As they led us in worship one morning, I was overwhelmed with a sense of God’s joy at seeing us, His children from vastly different cultures and languages, with our hearts united in praise to Him.
