Biography

Pam Chase was born in Vancouver, B.C. Her public singing career began at eight years old when she played a role in the musical “Gabriel” at Hamilton Place. She was also a soloist for 3 years in the Hamilton Children’s Choir under the direction of Donald Kendrick.
Throughout her school years she had the leading role in many school musicals such as “When You and I Were Young Maggie” and Bye, Bye, Birdie, she also played several concerts for the local high school and sang at the Coffee Houses.
During this time, Pam was also singing MOR and country music, entertaining at a variety of venues and entering many talent contests. She began playing the acoustic guitar and writing her own songs.
Pam had been attending a Baptist Youth Group in Dunnville and gave her heart to the Lord at age 13. She became actively involved in playing guitar for the worship time and enjoyed “jamming” with the other youths and she joined a gospel group called “Tribute”.
At 18 she joined the military and became a Mobile Support Equipment Operator where she had many opportunities to “entertain” the troops with skits and music. She was actively involved in the church singing and playing her guitar.
Pam met her husband, a Military Policeman, she left the military and began a new chapter in her life. She married in 1982 at 19. They lived in Winnipeg, Manitoba for 3 years and then they were posted to Wainwright, Alberta where she continued to sing Gospel music. She was very involved in the local church. She was also involved in the community theatre and played the part of “Dorothy” in the theatre’s presentation of the Wizard of Oz.
Pam took a position with the local Ambulance as a driver and through the years in Wainwright studied to become an Emergency Medical Technician. They adopted their first child in 1987.
Pam and her husband and their new son, were seconded to External Affairs and sent to the Canadian Embassy in Moscow in 1988. Pam continued her singing at Embassy events and the local Multi-National English speaking church. She was the music director and the Sunday School Coordinator. She had several jobs while in Moscow. She was a teacher at the International School, worked for the Canadian and British Embassies and worked for British Airways.
In 1990, they came back to Canada. They had opened their file to adopt again and received a call about a little boy. Their second child joined their family. Pam’s husband left the military, they sold their home and he began looking for work. They moved to Shediac, where her husband was offered a 3-month temporary position as Constable with the town police after 9 months of being unemployed. They took a step of faith and he has been there ever since and is now an RCMP officer in Shediac. They were involved in the Canadian Fellowship of Christian Peace Officers where Pam began singing and playing her guitar for services etc. The group Nightwatch was formed from that and Pam sang with them until they adopted their third child, a little girl who had Cerebral Palsy. Nightwatch has been together for more than 15 years now, Pam’s husband is the lead singer and she is an occasional guest artist and helps with their administration.
Pam continued to be involved in her local church and in 1993 was the interim choir director. She wrote and directed a musical dramatization of the Easter Story called “He Died For You”. She also did some speaking at special events.

They adopted 3 more children all at once and instantly doubled their family. All of the children have special needs. They moved from Shediac to Moncton where they now reside and have since adopted 2 more children. They home schooled their children for a time so that each one’s special needs could be addressed and so that their children could be rooted and grounded in God’s word. All of the children now attend public school. Their oldest son graduated from the Moncton Christian Academy and is presently in the Air Force training as a cook. Their second son has graduated from public High School.

Pam put together some of the music she wrote, Nightwatch helped her record those songs and her CD “Touch Just One Life” became a reality.

Pam and her husband have continued ministering in whatever capacity the Lord has led them. Pam has been one half of the Award winning Gospel Duo “Two2Serve” who most recently was the recipient of “Gospel Duo Of The Year” by the New Brunswick Gospel Music Hall of Fame. Two2Serve made their debut CD “Your Faith Amazes Me” in Nov 2005. They had the awesome opportunity to sing with Kate Simmonds on the worship team for a Ladies conference where they also met and sang with Gloria Gaither and her daughter Amy Gaither Hayes in Moncton NB.

Two2Serve is no longer an active ministry as Pam's ministry partner moved out of province, but their music is still reaching into homes and hearts through their CD ministry and for that they are both very grateful to the Lord.

FRIENDS

ARE YOU ALONE? DO YOU KNOW WHERE TO GO?
ARE YOU TRYING TO FIND SOMEONE NEW
WELL, OPEN UP YOUR EYES
AND LOOK AHEAD TO WHAT SEEMS LIKE MILES
AND YOU’LL KNOW

CAUSE YOU ARE MY FRIEND
AND I’LL BE HERE WHEN YOU NEED ME

BUT THAT’S WHAT FRIENDS ARE FOR
TO HELP EACH OTHER MAKE IT THROUGH

IF YOU WONDER WHY
I’M SINGING THIS SONG FOR YOU
WELL, YOU ARE MY FRIEND
AND I WANT TO TELL YOU THAT
WE WILL MAKE IT THROUGH
‘CAUSE I KNOW WE CAN HANG ON TILL THE END

Love Song

Written By: Pam Chase

LOVE SONG

IT’S A LOVE SONG, THE WAY HE LOVES US
SO MUCH LOVE THAT HE DIED
IT’S LIKE MUSIC, THE WAY HE KNOWS US
FOR EVERY TEAR WE’VE CRIED
HE’S BEEN THERE

IT’S A MELODY, WHY CAN’T WE SEE
THAT HE’S THE ONLY WAY
IT’S A FEW NOTES, JUST TO LISTEN TO
WHY NOT GIVE HIM A CHANCE TODAY
CAUSE HE LOVES YOU

JESUS WANTS TO LOVE YOU
HIS LOVE COMES FROM THE HEART
JESUS WANTS TO GET TO KNOW YOU
HE WANTS TO GIVE YOU A BRAND NEW START

IT’S A PICTURE OF A MOUNTAIN
THAT’S STRONG AND WON’T EVER LEAVE
IT’S A FRAGRANCE OF A FLOWER
THAT BLOWS IN THE SUMMER BREEZE
THAT HE LOVES YOU
OH, JESUS LOVES YOU
