Music ministry is an adventure that, in order to be successful, must be designed and directed by God. Here is the story of such an adventure, shared by an adventuresome couple over the past fifty years. With deep faith, trust, and openness to what God can do with multiple styles of music, Roger Wayne Hicks and his wife, Jean, have revitalized music ministry wherever God has led them. From sacred classics to gospel songs to contemporary praise and worship, with Angels, Lambs, Ladybugs, and Fireflies and Mendelssohn's Elijah-Roger and Jean have led believers to worship and have reached out with the news of Christ from east to west and north to south.
Whether you're a church musician, a pastor, or a church member, you too have a ministry adventure. In Roger and Jean's story, you might glean ideas to spark your path and also find moral support and the realization that you have not traveled certain roads alone. You might hear the question, "Whom shall we send, and who will go for us?" and find yourself responding, "Here am I, Lord, send me."
Includes "What If?" and "Can You Relate?" questions for thought and discussion.
