  1. Hey Bro. Jason,

    I am so thrilled to find you online. It was divine appointment that I came across your blog re: The Difference between a Worship Leader, Psalmist, & Minstrel. It blew my mind and challenged me a great deal. It did some major surgical shifting in my life. Thakn you for being ever so obedient to the call of God upon your life. You inspire me and challenge me to step over the threshold and fear not the unknown – to a new anointing that passes all understanding. Thanks again. I look forward to reading more of your blogs and hearing God speak through you. God bless and much love.

    Sis in Christ,
    Nina

  2. Hello Jason,

    I just finished reading your postings on ‘The Difference between a Worship Leader, Psalmist, & Minstrel’. (I hope you will write part 4 soon!)

    I also must be here by Divine appointment. For the past three days I’ve been revisiting my call as a Minstrel – way back in 1983. But it never came to fruition, at least not in the way I think it should have. Interestingly, while on a tour of the NW states (latter part of 2008) a gentleman, albeit drunk – nonetheless the voice of the Lord, spoke to me for at least two hours and repeatedly said “you’re a Minstrel”. I reflected on that after the tour and thought perhaps God is finally going to make it true.

    Then 2009 came and it seemed like the music just simply died. My wife and I transitioned to New Mexico among many other things happening that year. I got angry about the music situation. I thought God was going to open up opportunities to fulfill my Minstrel call. After all, it’s been 25 years since that knowing entered my heart.

    Regress to 1983-86: I was in a Worship band and was many times called out to “solo” while the Pastor, or most times visiting guests, ministered. God always came into the midst of His people and did wonderful things.

    Tonight I sit here at my desk, 52 years of age, reading your 3-part article, and I’m near tears. You have said so very well the exact things I’ve wanted to express as to what a Minstrel is and their purpose. “I just believe that there is a listening side to worship that we, as the church, are not tapping into. We need to release the anointing and function of the Minstrel in our churches once again…”, oh my heart so connects and yearns with this statement!

    But I feel lost; I don’t know how to get to where you are. I’ve not attended “organized” church for many years now. (I no less a believer because of this, on the contrary. My fellowship has been with a small community in our homes.) How do I have opportunity to express the Minstrel in me if 1) it’s not widely accepted what a Minstrel is/does and 2) I’ve not been in a “home church” and therefore not readily accepted as having the call of a Minstrel?

    I think a lot about how maybe it’s too late now. It’s been 25 years since that call first came; I should have been doing that all along. Have I “missed-the-boat”? It saddens my heart to think that perhaps this Minstrel calling is passed. And sometimes I think if the Lord would allow just one year of this calling being fulfilled I would be grateful for just that little time.

    Yeah, I feel kind of lost right now. How do I even connect with other Minstrels?

    (hope you don’t mind this long post)
