“THIS HOPE has been a friend to the Idlewild family since 1997. They are gifted and anointed musically, deeply spiritual in their walk, creative in their presentation, and accessible to all ages in prompting worship. We have used them in a variety of settings, and they have been stellar in every case: from worship support on Sunday morning, to full evening concerts, to multi-day ticketed events such as our annual Christmas presentation. This Hope is always prepared, supportive, and loved by all in attendance. Having said these things, my favorite aspect of these guys is that they are relational! When filling your next Guest Artist role, look no further. Book This Hope!"

"Worship is our response to God's revelation - and the ministry of THIS HOPE is just that - revelation and response. These guys know and love the Word and with great artistry sound the song of the worship response. They are faithful servants of the King! I love these guys!"

"It is with great joy that I recommend THIS HOPE to you. I have known these men, their families and their ministry for over 15 years. From the initial contact to the actual ministry, I can assure you that everything will be done with integrity, and that the clear message of Jesus will be evident. If you are looking for a ministry to inspire, challenge and encourage you and your people, then you must invite THIS HOPE to your church. I have used them many times here at FBC Woodstock and will continue to do so in the future!"

"I have had the privilege of working with THIS HOPE in the past and have found these men to not only be gifted singers and worship leaders, but humble men of God with a heart for ministry and the local church.

"The ministry of THIS HOPE truly was a blessing for our Choir, Orchestra and Congregation. It was easy to work with these guys. THIS HOPE allowed us to play and sing with them on several of their arrangements. It truly was a special night for our church family and community. God blessed, and we saw lives changed, and hurting people were powerfully ministered to. I highly recommend the ministry of THIS HOPE to anyone who wants to put together a great time of worship with your music ministry team. These guys are the real deal. They love Jesus and they understand ministry in the local church. I know they will be a blessing to your church as well."

“What a FANTASTIC event we had with THIS HOPE in December. Combining their Christmas concert with our Generational Christmas Choir turned out to be a night people talked about for weeks. Our children, youth and adult choirs loved learning the music and the opportunity to sing with them. As a Minister of Music, I so appreciated the humble way the guys interacted with our choirs and tech crew. They were so personable and showed everyone attention and respect during the rehearsal and afterward. It was a spiritually uplifting time that was a highlight of my ministry. If you are considering an event where your choir sings with THIS HOPE, you should do it. God will be glorified and your people will be blessed.”

"THIS HOPE are incredible musicians that also demonstrate a great heart for relationships, and they value the church. It’s tough to find a group that helps us put all the pieces together for a special concert. They were easy to work with, and in just one rehearsal, we joined our choir and orchestra with the group, and we were ready for the event. The day was a very positive one for our church. THIS HOPE was intentionally accessible and encouraging to our people all day long as they sang in our morning services and then in the evening concert. The concert brought a great balance of musicianship, entertainment and ministry. The great music caught our attention, but their heart and selections drew us to worship our Savior in fresh and meaningful ways."
