Hymns Contest

For the past two weeks I have been working on recording a hymns project, combining some of my favorite hymns with some of my own songs that go well with each hymn. The project is called Hymns I and is simply yours truly, at the piano, in worship. You can hear and sing along with one of those recordings at

Today I am having a contest. The winner will receive the entire collection of 11 hymns and songs via mp3s (in rough-mix form…not in their final mixed and mastered state).

How do you win? Post on my Facebook home page,!/profile.php?id=507304776, or Fan Page,, (in 25 words or less!) your favorite hymn and why it is your favorite. Tomorrow I will announce the winner after my team and I have reviewed the entries! All we ask is that you listen to the hymns – to be called Hymns I – and let us know what you think of the project.

If you do not win but still want to receive and review the entire collection (in rough-mix form), I am giving the collection to each new subscriber to DJ Insiders during the remainder of the month of February!

I look forward to reading your comments!

Let the word of Christ richly dwell within you, with all wisdom teaching and admonishing one another with psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with thankfulness in your hearts to God.

Can you help me?!?!?

I need your help! Recently I received an email from an online file transfer service I use called telling me of a video contest they were sponsoring. As the Lord would have it, I received a song within 5 minutes of receiving the email about the contest. I spent a couple of hours producing a simple video commercial and submitted it. I am now one of the top ten finalists!

How can you help? I need you to go to these sites, watch the short video and vote for my video if you think it is worthy of your vote!

To vote you will need to go through several steps:

1. Go to

2. Click the ‘Like’ button next to the YouSendIt heading at the top of the page

3. Click the arrow tab next to the PDF tab and toggle to ‘video’

4. Once you are on the video page you will see the top ten videos. Mine is video #5. Click #5

5. Once you are watching my video you can then click the ‘like’ button. That will be your vote.

You can then go to YouTube and vote there as well. This would mean a great deal to me and possibly help provide me with a new ministry tool.

The prize for winning? An Apple iPad! I have been wanting one but could not afford it at this time. Could this be the Lord’s way of providing? I don’t know…but I want to continue down this road and see! Would you take a few minutes and view the video on these sites and then consider casting a vote for me? And would you mind asking your friends to help as well?

One Little Song...One Amazing Savior

Ramblings of a battle-weary soldier...a wanted man

Yesterday I needed to hear God...and I received a letter...more about that later...

Yesterday I was feeling a little worn out from the emotional toll of all the need I come in contact with. More and more people who do not have a clue who Jesus is are contacting me...more and more people every day are calling for help in their desire for freedom from all manner of bondage...and I feel a certain responsibility to respond when they do. If nothing else I can at least let people know I care they exist. It is during such times that the enemy seems to come at me in an especially wicked manner...telling me I am not even making a dent...telling me no one even notices or cares...and whatever his most effective fiery darts of the day may be! You get the picture.

Good news: I am no one's Savior!I love to remind the enemy of that little nugget of truth. Jesus is Savior. All I can do is point people His way at best. What I have discovered is that most people respond to love...just knowing someone else knows and cares they exist. Even in my own life and ministry I respond to people caring whether I exist or not! Jesus sealed the deal for me when He swept me off my feet with His love, revealing to me that not only did He care that I exist, He carefully PLANNED and ORDAINED my very existence...because He WANTED me! This makes sharing that truth with others who don't yet know it so rewarding for me...because I love when people have the Light turned on in their hearts.

Reality: I still go through seasons of being overwhelmed with it all...and I am presently battling through to the place of rest, wondering if all I have been allowed to go through is worth it. Pain and weariness both have a way of directing my attention back to my Source...and I love the creativity with which Jesus pours His love out to me...which brings me to that letter I mentioned. The following letter came to me from my friend - worship pastor Scott Grimm. I have his permission to share this with you...and I share it because of the joy it flooded my soul with...and to remind you that even when we feel others may have forgotten about us, there is One Who remembers...


I just returned from a trip to Indonesia where, among other things, I taught a course on compassion ministry to a group of young Indonesian church planters. Toward the end of the week, I was having them list various groups in their community they could reach out to. They listed several, but were very curious about a more controversial segment of their society. The language barrier was difficult, but I realized they were talking about the homosexual community. They had many questions about how Christians in America respond to this group, since, in Islamic Indonesia, such activity is outlawed and not as visible as it is in the states. They were very concerned about whether Christians should have anything to do with such people. Would the Church's outreach to homosexuals be seen as condoning of this lifestyle?... they wanted to know.

I asked them if they thought it would be better if we simply did not extend love to homosexuals; if perhaps what we really needed to do is openly condemn their behavior and just hope for the best. They were quiet. I then said I wanted to share a story about a young man in America who struggled with his identity. "This young man had some church experience but felt unloved and unaccepted," I told them. "All his perceived rejection led him to seek out intimacy in the wrong ways, and ultimately led him into a gay lifestyle. Throughout his college experience, he hid this life from his Christian circles, but continued in it, becoming more confused about who he was. Because he was extremely talented musically, he attended a concert by a popular Christian group. It was at this concert he heard not a message of condemnation, but words of genuine love and hope. As a result, he chose to completely turn over hislife to Christ, and see himself the way God saw him."

"Today," I said, "He lives victoriously, and is married with nine children!"The Indonesian church planters all smiled and applauded. "But that's not all,"I continued, as I walked over to the keyboard in the classroom and sat down."As I said, he's a gifted musician. This man has gone on to become aninfluential writer and leader of worship music. In fact, he wrote this song..."

As I started playing and singing, "You are my strength when I am weak, You are the treasure that I seek, You are my all in all..." the place just came unglued.They began shouting and glorifying God. "You Are My All in All" is apparently a very meaningful song to them, though they never knew the power of the transformed life behind it. This revelation kicked off an extended worship time that lasted over an hour, highlighted by the realization that there is no condemnation in Christ Jesus, and that His church needs to love at all costs, because it is the love of our Savior that changes lives.

I just wanted you to know.

Blessings,Scott Grimm

Dennis again:

God, in His mercy, used this letter to give me a little nudge back into the place of resting in Him...reminding me that He does see and He does remember and He does care. God gave that little song to me 21 years ago...and look what He has done. This precious gift to me was 21 years in the making. His patience in sharing it at just the right time demonstrates His great love and care for me...and I share this, hopefully not in pride, but rather to remind YOU that He loves YOU and love us all better than we give Him credit for. My life is best lived when I choose to live it from His perspective rather than my own.

In His Love and Grace,

Dennis Jernigan

One of the most requested ministry tools for Dennis Jernigan is to have his testimony of freedom from same sex attraction available on DVD. We are so excited to announce to you that we have a brand new updated version of his story…on DVD!

On April 11, 2010, Dennis led out in worship and ministry at White Oak Worship Center in Blairs, VA. During the Night of Praise, DJ not only led out in worship but also shared an extended telling of his story. White Oak Worship Center has very graciously helped produce a DVD of what unfolded that evening. We are calling the new DVD "Dennis Jernigan LIVE at White Oak".

In addition to his story, Dennis leads out in worship that was also captured during the evening’s events. At the end of this announcement you will find a complete list of the music also contained on this very special DVD. During the course of what transpired that evening, Dennis ministered to those dealing with grief, the healing of memories, as well as those desiring freedom from bondage. This very special DVD would be a wonderful tool for ministry regardless of whether those who view it struggle with same sex attraction or not. If you desire more freedom in your life, this DVD will bring hope to continue seeking Jesus for that freedom. If you desire to simply be refreshed in God’s presence, this DVD will help usher you into an awareness of God’s presence and power.

If you would like a copy of the DVD, simply call 1-800-877-0406 and order your DVD today. All we ask is that if you cannot pay the full price that you limit your order to one DVD. Our price is simple. We want no one to be denied access to the ministry found on this DVD so we are making it available for $15.00…OR whatever you can afford. We ask only that you pay for shipping and handling if that is all you can afford. Any money given above the cost of shipping and handling will help us continue to make this ministry DVD available to others who cannot afford the suggested price of $15.00.

Would you help us get the message of freedom out to as many as possible? Would you consider telling all your friends, church leadership, counselors, small group leaders, Facebook Friends, Twitter Friends, and others about this new DVD? We believe freedom in Christ is possible and we want as many as possible to hear the Good News! Your good word to others will go a long way in helping us do just that. Thank you ahead of time for helping us seek the Kingdom by seeking the King!
