Biography

Randy & Heidi Gunn
The GunnPoint Band
- with Ministry Profile

Based out of Colorado, the dynamic music of Randy & Heidi Gunn and The GunnPoint Band touches the lives of thousands of people across the U.S. every year.

As the Official Pastors of the Cowboy Mounted Shooting Association (CMSA), GunnPoint performs Cowboy Church Concerts at the organization’s World & National Events. GunnPoint’s Music Ministry is also heard at Major Pro Rodeo Events and Wild West Shows across the country.

This far-reaching Cowboy Church Ministry actually began a few years ago as a simple invitation to “perform a song or two and share some words of inspiration on the love of Jesus”. Today it takes two 40’ trailers to support the musicians, singers and equipment at a GunnPoint Concert. Best described as, “a little bit country and a little bit Rock & Roll”, the GunnPoint Band’s music always inspires the soul, moves the heart and lifts the spirit.

Their Cowboy Church Concerts are fun and energized services that draw in cowboys & cowgirls who might otherwise never attend a church. The newsletter for this remarkable ministry now reaches over 15,000 people each month with words of inspiration, as well as important news and information.

Randy & Heidi originally became involved in The Cowboy Mounted Shooting Association out of a desire to combine their love for horses and the shooting sports. As their involvement in CMSA grew and fellow members discovered their musical gifts and ministry, Randy & Heidi found themselves sharing much more with their fellow CMSA members than just their love for mounted shooting.

The Gunns have won top honors as National & World Cowboy Mounted Shooting Champions.

Those awards have enabled them to reach out to their fellow CMSA members with mutual respect and shared interests & experience. It’s in these ways that God has given Randy & Heidi favor both as competitive shooters and ministers by enabling them to become a vital part of CMSA’s extensive cowboy family.

This past November, GunnPoint performed on the 2005 Inspirational Country Music Awards Show, which was broadcast live on GAC to more than 40 million households around the world, from the famous Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, TN. Also performing on the show were Wynonna Judd, Diamond Rio, Andy Griggs, Jamie O’Neil, Josh Turner and many other well-known and respected artists.

GunnPoint was among the top 5 nominees in 3 categories including “Group of the Year” and it was during this event that Randy was honored as Inspirational Country Music’s Male Vocalist of the Year.

The Cowboy Mounted Shooting Association itself gave Randy the name of the "Pistol Packin' Preacher”. He has been in ministry since he was a young man. A miraculous recovery from a near fatal accident was the turning point through which he committed his life to ministry, at the age of 15. By 18 & 19, Randy was doing joint concerts with groups like the Imperials and, at 24 he recorded his first album, "Commitment", with Benson, the #1 Christian music label of the time. It became #15 in the nation with three of its songs hitting the top 20 list in Contemporary Christian music.

Heidi was born in Indiana but spent the early years of her childhood growing up in Europe. Her extensive travel, coupled with her ability to speak French and understand other languages has helped her to minister to people with a wide range of backgrounds, in her foreign missions work as well as GunnPoint’s ministry.

Heidi’s gifts, education and accomplishments in art, music, acting, modeling and writing enable her to enrich the work of GunnPoint’s ministry in important ways. Sometimes on the same day, she can be found shifting her focus & attention from supervising the design of a current CD project, (such as their newest CD, STEADY WORKING), to overseeing the design of a website, to collaborating on Gunnpoint’s numerous media productions, articles and studio recordings.

Heidi is a very gifted and talented lady, but her greatest gift is her heartfelt love for people and compassion for those who suffer from emotional or physical burdens. Her deep love for God ministers to all she touches.

Their family commitments combined with the ongoing studio recording of new songs & CDs, plus all their travels to concerts and competitions, keeps their schedule full, but they always make time for their cowboys & cowgirls in moments of need. It’s impossible to calculate the hours Randy & Heidi spend counseling, comforting and encouraging others, one on one, on the phone & via emails.

All these activities, coupled with their video productions, Internet communications and many other outreaches, keep Randy & Heidi incredibly busy. But when asked about their heavy schedule they just respond by saying that they’re simply happy that God has a lot He wants them to do.

Lyrics

Let Him Be Love

Written By: Amy Sky & Steven Mackinnon

vs1--Every life has a plan, though sometimes the map is out of our hands
Every day is a step, though we may not know the reason just yet
When your faith fails, when your dreams sleep, learn to let go and just let it be

Chorus -- Let Him be love, let Him be light, let God be hope in the dark of the night
For every heart that's lying in wait, let Him be love, let Him be love

vs2 --He is strong, He is brave, no I can't even count all the ways
There's a time to be still, and let Jesus take you where He will
When your faith fails, when your dreams sleep, learn to let go and just let Him be

Chorus-- Let Him be love, let Him be light, let God be hope in the dark of the night
For every heart that's lying in wait, let Him be love, let Him be love

vs3--It's a long, hard road to travel, yes I know what it's like when you lose your way
When the best laid plans unravel, that's when you've got to believe

What God's Gonna Do

Written By: Harrie McCullough, Joyce Martin McCullough, Niles Borop, Amy Susan Foster

Chorus--God's gonna do what He's gonna do
He's always up to something new
And you'll never know just who He's gonna use
So when He calls your name my friend
Find your place and jump right in
If you wanna to be in on what God's gonna do

vs1--If God has a boat that He needs building
Or a sea to be dry land
If He needs someone to walk through the fire
or heal a crippled man
He will find one willing and ready to obey
If you're the one he calls on
Well, just let Him have His way

Chorus--God's gonna do what He's gonna do
He's always up to something new
And you'll never know just who He's gonna use
So when He calls your name my friend
Find your place and jump right in
If you wanna to be in on what God's gonna do

vs2--God doesn't always call the equipped
But He will equip the called
He knows everything that we need
To make sense of it all
And He'll work through our weakness
When we depend upon the Lord
Cause if He says to do it
We'll have His full support
