The Van Martins - Pictures in the Meadow

Living Our Beliefs...and Serving Others

The Van Martins were called to ministry to serve others through music and speaking for the purpose of spreading God’s message. In discussing their calling, the Van Martins desire to remain in His will, serving churches and pastors with the single goal of furthering His Kingdom. They know there is currently a real need for this service and eagerly serve others while fulfilling the spiritual needs of their own families at the same time.

The Van Martins are made up of a group of believers brought together by the transforming grace of Jesus Christ. With backgrounds in the church that stretch back to early childhood, the Van Martins share the abiding love of God by caring for one another, and reaching into their neighborhoods, their region and the world with the Good News of salvation. Led for many years as a worship and praise team by Ron, the Van Martins are musical evangelists, to their very core, who bring God's word to people in every situation, from all walks of life, helping them to grow in love and service to our Creator and Lord.

Colossians 3:16-17 says 16 "Let the message of Christ dwell among you richly as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom through psalms, hymns, and songs from the Spirit, singing to God with gratitude in your hearts. 17 And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him." 

The Van Martins, guided by this seemingly simple command, share their lives through the gift of music from the Spirit, with gratefulness of heart, in His name.

Our Style of Worship

The Van Martins deliver a diverse worship style that ranges from traditional and well-known to southern-gospel to contemporary; all are songs that most folks will recognize and will enjoy singing. The tempo is upbeat and uplifting, while the sound is richer and fuller through songs sung in four-part harmony. Intermixed with songs is participation from the congregation, testimony and thoughts, and maybe a song or two from the Van Martin Children.

Our Ministry Does Not Charge a Fee

No, seriously, no base minimums, no hidden charges, no passing the plate a second time!  While we pay our travel expenses and continue to grow the ministry through love offerings, donations, and honorariums...our ministry is offered to you, completely free of charge.  Financial gain is not the goal of this ministry.  Fame is not the goal of this ministry.  It doesn't matter if there are five people or 5000 in attendance. The Van Martins have a servant's heart and were called to serve others just as Jesus Christ did in His ministry.

A Time of Rest for the Leaders

It's gratifying to minister to a church thus allowing a pastor to sit with their spouse, or to see the music minister, choir, and musicians taking well-needed time off.  The Van Martins deliver a well-rounded, biblically-based worship service, which focuses on the needs of the church by begging the presence of the Holy Spirit.  This is a time they can serve those in the ministry as well as those who are hurting and seeking relief.
