The roots and events leading to our ministry go back many years, but it began officially in 1996 with the recording of our first project, "FAITH, HOPE & LOVE". Recorded in Kansas City, this collection of Phil's original songs reflected life lessons we had learned up to this point. We hit the road about one weekend a month spreading God's message with sincere hearts and a down-to-earth presentation. 1997 brought a much fuller concert schedule, a weekly radio program called "Sounds of Praise", and the release of two recordings, "GOSPEL FAVORITES LIVE" and "MERRY CHRISTMAS", plus the single, "HOLD ME". Pam went part-time at the insurance company January of 1998 as our schedule continued to pick up.
In April of 1999, God opened the door to record in Nashville. We worked with Mark Burchfield's studio to cut the instrumentation, and were led to Michael Sykes Productions to work with producer, David Ponder, on vocals. The result was "WHAT MATTERS MOST", a collection of Phil's songs focusing the listener on what God wants our priorities to be. We released 2 singles, "Under the Blood", and "God Chooses Who He Uses". In March of 2000, we took a leap of faith at God's calling, and Pam quit her insurance job to dedicate herself entirely to the ministry and family.
By this time, "WHAT MATTERS MOST" was receiving national airplay and the single, "God Chooses Who He Uses" was beginning to climb the charts. We were booked solid with 3 to 4 concerts every weekend in about a ten state area. It was exciting to see audiences moved and convicted in their faith by the strong scriptural content of our songs.
started a weekly e-mail newsletter which gave
ministry updates, tour schedules, and prayer
concerns. We also included weekly devotions that
God laid on our hearts from real life experience.
Little did we know that what started as a tool to
help others, would soon turn into a key source from
which we received prayers and support after our
life-changing accident June 4, 2000.
We were off the road for 15 months as God worked to restore Pam's body and stretch us both in our faith, trust, and commitment to Him and each other. Phil wrote these experiences into what became our next CD, "LIVING PROOF", recorded exactly one year after our devastating accident. The corresponding tour was a huge success.
In the years since our return to ministry, we've released eight CDs, two videos, and three books. Our concert tours have taken us from Alaska to the Caribbean and across much of the USA. God has expanded our outreach to include Women's and Marriage Conferences and a variety of teaching opportunities. Phil (along with some great co-writing buddies) translates our walk with the Lord into music that speaks God's truth in a very real, honest and down-to-earth way.
We continue to share powerful music and testimony that is reaching more people with God's message of hope, love, and faithfulness than ever before. Our journey has not been an easy one, but we rejoice that we can encourage others to press on through the valleys, trusting Jesus to guide them with His comforting hand.
We firmly believe, the best is yet to come!

and raised in Kansas City, Missouri, Phil is the
only child of Christian parents. His dad passed
away of lung cancer in 1993, but his mom still
lives in the same home where Phil grew up. Loving
music from a young age, Phil would sit in his
backyard tire swing as early as age 5 to write
songs. Country music was his favorite in those
days, and he would often surprise passersby at the
grocery store by announcing, "Hi, I'm Charley
through his youth Phil sang in choirs often chosen
for solos. He took piano lessons for 5 years
developing his God-given talent. With a sharp ear
and thorough understanding of music theory, he
learned several other instruments on his own. At
the age of 15, Phil started performing his songs as
well as other cover tunes he had arranged at local
conventions, banquets, and meetings with Mom
running sound. As a high school senior, the choir
performed one of his original compositions at the
annual Christmas concert. Pam happened to be in the
audience which led to their first date.
high school, Phil went to Nashville to record a few
demos, including an original song or two. Returning
home to Kansas City, Phil played piano and sang in
several country bands until God drew him out of the
nightclub scene after about 5 years and opened the
door to play in opry shows around the area for
another 5 years. God called him into full-time
ministry in 1996 using his experiences, knowledge,
humor, and talent to spread God's Good

born to Christian parents, she has lived in the
Kansas City area all her life. Music has been a
love of hers for as long as she can remember. As a
child it was not uncommon to find her in the
basement singing "Make The World Go Away" at the
top of her lungs with Marie Osmond or dancing a
little jig to "Put On A Happy Face."

was blessed with a life free from tragedy until the
passing of Phil's dad in 1993. Then it seemed God
needed her to learn first-hand how to handle grief.
Pam's oldest sister, Denise, was diagnosed with
ovarian cancer in 1994. After 3 difficult years,
God called her home in 1997. Just 18 months later
in March of 1999, Denise's only son, Jason, 21
years old, was killed in a car accident coming home
from work. Then, of course, Pam's accident June 4,
2000, which almost claimed her own life, left her
to face a brand new world...as a quadriplegic.
Although God has miraculously healed her to a great
degree, she still faces physical challenges and
emotional battles that continue to stretch her
faith. She now uses the lessons God has and
continues to teach her to comfort others and give
people hope that God still works today.

1985. We were both part of the Kansas City
All-Metro High School Choir when Pam was
introduced to Phil in a music store by one of
Phil's friends after a performance. Pam had a
date with this friend who didn't have a car, so
Phil offered to drive them home. Seeing that Pam
was a nice girl and knowing his friend had lots
of other girls he was dating at the time, Phil
gave her his business card and said to call if
she ever needed to talk. It wasn't long until
Pam made that call.
couple of weeks later on December 15th, Pam had
another date with this friend to his high school
choir Christmas concert. Knowing she had been

friend ducked out the back door to meet another
girl after the concert. Phil offered to buy her
a soda at Fuddruckers as consolation. Being
completely enamored with his musical ability she
had just witnessed, and being lost in his blue
eyes, Pam quickly agreed. In August of 1988,
Phil wrote Pam a song, and on one knee began to
sing, "Will you marry me?" Thus began our
