On The 6th Day Of Christmas – What Child Is This

Merry Christmas Everyone.
I have not been able to travel much, so I wanted to play a few songs for you. I did not go to a special location and I did not setup a sound system to record. I recorded these songs in my basement, from my phone. I even pulled one old track from a cassette because it is my wife’s favorite Christmas song. I hope you can see past those things and listen because this music is coming from my heart to you for your enjoyment this Christmas.
Please be sure to join us for all 12 days of music where we will post one song a day starting Monday, December 14th to Thursday, December 25th.

12 Days Of Christmas!!!

This year looked a little different for us, and we were not able to be on the road much due to the virus. It certainly has been a challenging year in a lot of ways, but we are so thankful that God has been with us each step of the way. Because we have not been able to share our music with you in person, we would like to play some music for you to enjoy in the comfort of your own home. Starting on Monday December 14th, we will be posting one song every day until Christmas Day to help everyone get in the Christmas mood.
The location for recording …my basement. The quality of the recording …not the best. That stuff does not matter if the music helps to bring you a little Christmas cheer.
We pray that the 12 Days of Christmas will bring you joy, hope and the Christmas spirit we all need right now.
It may have been a challenging year for us all, but we are about to celebrate the greatest gift this world ever received – the birth of Christ. Therefore, we have a TON to celebrate and be joyful for.
Please be sure to join us on Monday December 14th for the launch of the 12 Days of Christmas.
Merry Christmas Everyone!!

What’s New, November 17, 2020

Half the month is gone, and I realized I did not do a “What’s New” for November yet!! I am very excited to be able to say that we have concerts in December!! Since March we have had a concert here and there, but December is half full and we are grateful for that. Christmas concerts are so much fun. The music is fun to play, I get to make fun of Hallmark movies and I get to share the Gospel and about the birth of Christ. It is a win win!! All of you Pennsylvania people, please check out our schedule and see if we are close and then come out and see a Christmas concert. It would be great to see a lot of you.
The other news is that we will be posting our 2021 schedule on our website very soon. Normally, we would be 100% done with 2021 by now and actually be scheduling 2022, but obviously things are different right now. 2021 still has a ton of holes for us to fill, but we are excited about what we already have booked and are looking to fill up the rest of the year with whatever God puts in our path.
I have always been an optimistic, glass is half full kind of guy. I always like to look at the positive instead of the negative. The negative right now is that things are still crazy with COVID-19 and some places are either shut down or thinking about shutting down again with the spike in cases that occurred recently. The positive right now……the Gospel needs spread. The Hope, the Salvation, the Comfort, the Love, the Everything that we need, we get in the Gospel. Join us in praying that we can get back on the road as soon as we can to spread that message to as many people as possible.

Thank you for your time and for checking in.

What’s New, October 1, 2020

This is my favorite time of the year. The temperature is cooler, the leaves are changing color and things are just beautiful.
Things here at the ministry are nowhere even close to being back to “normal”. We are still having a few people postponing their concerts or services with us and booking concerts on the phone is almost nonexistent. That said…….it does appear to be starting to come back to the norm but it is doing it VERY SLOWLY!!!!! Churches are meeting again in person, and even though it is much less people, it is still stepping in the right direction.
All that said, we are extremely thankful for the concerts we have done the past 6 months and are very excited for the upcoming concerts we have. This year has been very difficult for us, but I know it has been difficult for a lot of people.
Please pray for this ministry as we really need to get back to a full schedule as soon as possible and pray for the people all around us that are really struggling to even put food on the table for their family.
Looking at all that is happening in the world right now with the fires, the riots, the election, the virus and everything else, it is so hard to find peace, comfort and joy in much right now. The very fact that people are hurting and struggling right now is the very reason we want to get back on the road as quick as we can. Why…..because we have the answer to everything, we have the message of peace, the message of hope and the comfort of a relationship in Jesus Christ. We have the Gospel !!!!
Please pray that we can get out very soon and share the Gospel to everyone that needs to hear it. If you feel led to help us at this time with a donation, we would really really appreciate it. And if you are interested in scheduling something with our ministry, please contact us and we can work something out.
Thank you for checking in and for your time.

What’s New, September 2, 2020

For years and years my “what’s new” updates have been about how the ministry has been doing. I always talk about how we normally do 260-280 concerts a year and I always love to share how God uses this ministry to lead people to Christ. Last year alone we saw a little over 2000 people accept Christ as their Savior. This year is WAY different. Since March 15th, we have done 12 concerts. It has been very hard in many ways. I know a ton of people who are dealing with similar things in their life, so I don’t want this post to be anything but an encouragement because of what I want to share today.
My joy that I want to share is that in a recent concert I was able to lead a young couple to Christ. Now some will read this and be a “glass is half empty” type person since our numbers are so much lower this year, but I have always been the opposite kind of person. That couple now has a place in heaven for eternity and that is something to praise God for. Are the numbers so far this year on track? Nope. Are we going to do as many concerts this year like we have in years past? Not even close. Are we doing well financially? Hahaha, no! Is the ministry as effective as it has been the last few years? Yes.
I say yes to that last question because it is not about numbers. It is not about beating last years number and having a higher number then before. It is all about being effective in every opportunity we have.
Before we got shut down for this virus, the ministry was very blessed to have been having a good year up until March 15th. We saw many people accepting Christ and had a lot of concerts for the rest of the year and most of 2021 calendar filled up. Now……. things are really different.
But what that recent couple that received Christ represents is a HUGE encouragement to us to continue what we are doing even in crazy hard times like this. At the end of this year when I post a “what’s new” to recap the whole year, I may only be able to talk about a fraction of the concerts we normally do, but what I can talk about is the people from January through March and the recent couple that changed their lives for eternity because God used this ministry to deliver that message. What a blessing!! Please pray with us that our upcoming concerts will remain on the calendar so we can deliver the Gospel to those people.

Thank you all for checking in and for your time,

Chiz
