"Praising God With Strings Attached !"

Comments from past programs include:

“Wonderful way of combining humorous and ‘long hair’ music!”

“Tremendous program! I enjoyed it so much.”

“Great talent. We need more men like John to stand up for Christ!”

“I could close my eyes and hear angels singing.”
As a Minister of Music, career educator, published Nashville
songwriter, and musician who has presented my worship
program in Arkansas churches for years I am continuing to
share this special presentation with others.

The program of praise includes original songs, contemporary
arrangements of gospel favorites, violin solos, and a special
segment devoted to the stories behind some of our favorite hymns
and how they came to be composed.

Suitable for all ages, my program has always been received with
warm and enthusiastic compliments. Throughout my life I have
been involved in hundreds of performances of all types:
Symphony concerts, rock operas, country music dance bands,
school assembly tours, and church Cantatas, and many other
areas of music, but none of these performances have touched and
moved me as deeply as my program, PRAISING GOD with
strings attached! It is a joy to play and sing this music.

In order to make this program available to churches of all sizes
my arrangements are very flexible with the goal of bringing the
program to as many churches as possible. My sound equipment
is sufficient for most sanctuaries and fellowship halls.

I encourage you to contact me with questions and possible
appearance dates. I know you and your congregation will be

Following His cues,
