Please read the following 11/2016 announcement from JMT which addresses some changes coming to his ministry schedule in 2017 and an exciting new tour / opportunity!
Peace and Good in Christ
After much prayer, I am entering a new chapter in my monastic and JMT ministerial life.
Beginning in 2017, I am responding to a call from God - and confirmed by my bishop - to radically reduce the number of my itinerant ministries in order to be present at Little Portion Hermitage/Monastery for deeper prayer and community building. This means that my personal appearances will be more rare. They will also be more special!
During this time of reflection, I looked back with joy through all the years we have shared - especially the music that first brought us together on our journey of faith. If my appearances must become fewer, I want them to be truly special, so I am writing to you personally to consider sponsoring a "LIFETIME OF MUSIC" Concert Ministry. These evenings will feature the most loved songs and reflections from my complete catalog - many having not been performed in decades!
As a community Founder and General Minister, I am aware that financial concerns can be overwhelming. That is why, based on recent experiences of great success, we are offering you an opportunity to make this one evening THE FUNDRAISING EVENT OF THE YEAR for your parish, school or diocese!
Our ticketed concert format has worked extremely well for parishes in the recent past! It is a fun and exciting win/win situation for everyone and will be for you as well!
We are open to other settings (ministry formats), but this is the best use of my time and talent at this time.
UPDATE: Do to the volume of calls requesting information, we are asking only serious inquirers to
and complete our
. It is imporatnat that your event location seats 600 - 1000 or more and you are either the pastor or have the complee authority of the pastor or leadership to inquire.
