2018 ARTIST PAGE
Check out the 2018 Gospel Music Schedule for more details:
Melanie Oakley & Walter Cross
Melanie and Walt have been doing music together since November of 2014.
Melanie was looking for someone to play for her at a Winnipeg Church event, and
the co-ordinator called Walt to ask for help. Walt’s response, “Why Not…” ?
Since that event, Melanie and Walt have shared their love for Classic and Country
Gospel Music in Manitoba and in Eastern Saskatchewan, where Melanie grew up.
We’ve been privileged to be part of The Elim Gospel Singers - Elim Baptist Church, in Beausejour, where we’ve both enjoyed workin’ together with others who love Gospel Music. We count it a real privilege to be invited to participate at this year’s Gospel Jamboree in Beausejour.
Jim & Kate Sanderson are musicians and song writers that present the gospel through their music and testimonies, singing about the saving grace of Jesus Christ.
Their songs give a message of faith and hope. Jim & Kate minister wherever God leads and are dedicated to spending the rest of their days to “encouraging the saints and reaching the lost”.
Vince & Stacey Anderson
Vince & Stacey Anderson play country music, country gospel, old rock n' roll, and bluegrass music at community events, anniversaries, birthday parties, coffee houses, Christmas parties, personal care homes, gospel festivals & summer festivals. They enjoy meeting new friends through music and very seldom go anywhere without a guitar and mandolin in the vehicle. Vince & Stacey spent several years in the ministry with Vince serving as a gospel preacher and President of a Christian College.
Stirling and Yvette Ranville
I accepted Jesus as Lord back in 1979.
I began singing Gospel Music from that time on. I was filled with the Baptism of the Holy Ghost on August 11, 1997. Yvette got saved on January 11, 1998 at which time we teamed up singing Country/Bluegrass Gospel Music. Our first big event was The Manitoba Gospel Jamboree in a big white tent in Headingly, MB. (I think in 1998).
In 1999, we organized a Gospel Jamboree at the Walker Theatre in Winnipeg that went on for three years on the Sunday of Labour Day week-ends
We have been Gospel Music guests at Assiniboine Hills, Island Park, South Oaks, Silver Stream, Austin, Moosehorn, Manigotagan, Dauphin, Grand Marais, Selkirk, St. Laurent, Lundar & many others.
We have recorded professionally nine Country Gospel Music CDs and one Country CD.
We attend church at the Selkirk Aboriginal Redemption Centre Church in Selkirk, Manitoba where I am Ordained Associate Pastor under Pastor Raymond Settee. We have attended this church for the last twelve years.
Bert & Liz Genaille
In January 1995 we were accepted as missionaries with Continental Mission and we were officially with them from 1995-2009; we were also officially associated with Canadian Revival Fellowship from 2002-2009. When we were with Continental Mission and Canadian Revival Fellowship we travelled across Canada and in some areas of the USA, and Bert went on a mission trip to South Africa. We enjoyed this kind of ministry for many years.
When we lived in Regina we attended the Healing Hearts ministry church and got to know the leadership and the people there.
In 2008, we moved to Nipawin, SK, and felt that we should do some local ministry there. After some difficult decisions, in January 2010 we decided to go under one umbrella and joined with Healing Hearts Ministries Inc. to begin a church plant. We are thankful that God sent more missionaries to serve with us at First Nations Gospel Chapel. See more information on Healing Hearts at www.healinghearts.ca
Wendell and his group were a big hit at our Jamboree last year and we are sure you will be blessed by their music of sweet bluegrass and gospel tunes.
The Lively Stones
Comprised of First Nations Aboriginal music veterans. The Lively Stones are a gospel music group that bring traditional hymns, Country gospel, and Original gospel songs to life in praise and worship
The Dream Catchers
John and Gail are Beausejour home-town favorites and well known at previous year's Gospel Jamboree. They are sure to draw you in with their country and gospel music.
Another local favorite in Beausejour Isaiah 6 brings some of their great songs of the faith that will inspire you.
The Elim Baptist Singers
The Elim Gospel Singers came from a group who started Jamming on Monday Nights at Elim Baptist Church in early 2016. We've had the privilege of playing and singing at Gospel Music Sunday at Elim Baptist, and were privileged to share at last year's Gospel Music Jamboree. Although our backgrounds are as diverse as our fingerprints, we've gelled into a Happy Group of Singers and Players. We count it a privilege to share in this year's Gospel Music Jamboree.
