More about Bill and Karen Itzel Ministries:
Twenty five years ago, God called our family to be messengers of His Gospel and we strive everyday to be faithful to that calling. While the Itzels ministry has a focus to build and edify the Body of Christ with songs that teach Biblical truth, we have always presented the clear gospel in our concerts. In 2012, however, we stepped out on faith to form the 501c3 non-profit "Bill and Karen Itzel Ministries" to focus on evangelism. So far, in less than 4 years, we have seen three fully funded mission trips to Nicaragua and plan to return in 2016; we have distributed over 2,000 CD's free of charge that give the clear gospel in a fun, engaging way. We have blessed several families with gifts for their adoptions, recorded a CD of songs that will be distributed throughout the country, paid for several evangelism training seminars for our staff, and plan to do even more in the years ahead.
Our earnest prayer is that God might lead you to join us in this vital ministry. Ephesians 5:18-19 tells us of the importance of music that is honoring to Christ. It is more than entertainment and fun, it is one of the best ways to put ourselves in a position to be filled with the Spirit. “…be filled with the Spirit, speaking to one another in psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs, singing, and making melody in your heart to the Lord.” Good Christian music that exalts the Lord, helps us to be controlled by the Spirit as we do His will here on earth.
Karen and I, as well as our entire ministry Board take this calling very seriously and that is why we have formed this non-profit ministry, officially known as “Bill and Karen Itzel Ministries”. We have seen God move in our lives, edify the hearts of many other believers, and draw the lost to Himself through the songs He has given us, and our vision is to expand this ministry to reach as many people as possible for as long as God gives us the ability.
We would like for you to prayerfully consider partnering with us in 2016 and beyond. Your investment in this ministry will provide eternal returns for the Kingdom of Christ.
Your support will allow Bill and Karen Itzel Ministries to continue to:
1. Write quality songs that are rooted and grounded in the truths of the Word of God.
2. Provide a visible example of a strong family that is committed to serving Christ together, as well as an encouragement to other families in these times.
3. Reach the world through professional concerts to churches of all sizes and financial abilities; concerts that praise God, edify the body, and evangelize the lost.
4. Reach out around the world through mission trips that provide physical, and more importantly, spiritual nourishment to hungry souls.
Many exciting opportunities lie ahead for Bill and Karen Itzel Ministries. Through your support you can help us achieve these opportunities and touch the lives of thousands of families in America.
