A Message of Hope
during uncertain times
Just a bit about me...
From a boy on his daddy’s farm to a Christian singer/songwriter, Trevor shares his love for God through his down-to-earth “new country” sound and inspiring lyrics. Stressing that his ministry is non-denominational, and not limited to Christian venues only, he also plays at fairs, festivals, schools and prisons. Many who would never darken a church door soon identify with Trevor’s music and lyrics. His soft voice an gentle manner complement his message of hope and encouragement.
Trevor has done well over 2,000 concerts in his 19 years of full time ministry. Previously to that there were several years of part time ministry; which included singing on street corners. God; in His own unique way, has placed Trevor on many stages. Feeling undeserving of such opportunities he has shared his message with many people of influence; including the Prime Minister of Canada. Trevor has also sang in the United States at David Wilkerson’s Times Square Church in New York City twice.
After picking up the guitar in 1990, Trevor went on to release 21 albums and 3 DVD’s; which have received airplay in Canada, and some in the United States, Europe ad other parts of the world. He has written and recorded over 200 songs to date.
Trevor has not taken the conventional route in the music world. After winning the Canadian Country Gospel Album of the year on two occasions in the first 3 years of ministry, he chose a different direction.
Feeling that the award scene was superficial and pointless he set his sights and attention on singing to please God. Trevor believes that using gospel music as a springboard for fame and bright lights is not going to make the many lost souls around us look to the heavens and that God wants men and women who are not “for sale.”
“There are many things in life that are uncertain”, he states. “I grew up thinking that God was one of them.” Trevor admits openly that he was searching for some meaning in life. He didn’t like the angry young man that he was and felt that his life had no direction. During this time of crisis, Trevor says that he met a ‘genuine, simple kinda’ preacher” in a little church who introduced him to Jesus Christ; the only One that could give him peace and direction.
Presently living in Tuxford Saskatchewan with his wife Jennifer, Trevor takes time to reflect. “I now know that true happiness comes from knowing God and trusting in His plan for my life and family. I intend to sing songs for Him and Him alone; that I might bring the message of the Gospel to so many who are searching for Truth and stability in this old world.”
Therefore said He unto His disciples
the harvest is plenteous but the labourers are few.
From my heart to yours...
Someone recently told me that they had listened to one of my cds
several times over the last year and were moved by the message.
This person then went on to ask me if I had made the “big time” yet.
I thought to myself, “Wow, they missed the entire message.”
Even within the Church it is sad to see how singers
are elevated to celebrity status and many of them are only too happy
to live for the applause and bright lights.
I am pretty certain that Jesus never had that in mind when He told us
to go out and preach the Gospel.
Many times Jesus has nothing to do with Gospel music except
that it touches a few heartstrings and “Heaven Is My Home”
sounds good in 3-part harmony.
I for one find myself very out of place in most music circles
but I don’t feel out of place as I read my Bible and spend quiet times with the Lord.
If that simple life that Jesus talked about is old-fashioned
and out of place in this world of phony religion,
then I will have to be counted in that number, a “misfit” for Jesus.
