Summer Outreaches

Since our founder and president, Jon Stemkoski, launched the first one in 1977, CELEBRANT SINGERS teams, comprised of ten singers with a 12-piece orchestra, have carried the gospel to over 8 million people in all 50 states and 100 countries.  Raising our own support as missionaries, CELEBRANT SINGERS is more than “just another music group”.  We’re a committed, dedicated team of spiritual workers who love Jesus, have heard the call of God, and are serious about the gospel!

In 2017 two CELEBRANT teams will travel and minister throughout the United States and Canada.

 

Summer Team – 2017

United States & Maritime Provinces – New Brunswick and Nova Scotia
Dates: June 5 to August 15, 2017

DIRECTORS: Jon & Mimi Stemkoski
MISSIONARY SUPPORT: $4,895.00

All singers, instrumentalists and technicians who have been selected by audition and have raised their needed financial support, will meet in Visalia, California in early June for an intensive 10-day rehearsal and training camp.  We rent a beautiful retreat facility in the mountains outside Visalia where we’ll stay, enjoy all our meals together, rehearse, have Bible studies, prayer times and training sessions to become the most effective we can be for our missions assignment.  It’s a powerful experience!

Our first service will be June 15, 2017  in the greater Visalia area.  Once on the road we’ll minister in a different venue every evening from California to New York, across Canada, and work our way back to California with a concert virtually every night.  We’ll end the summer in Visalia with two very special events, our GRAND HOMECOMING CONCERT and WORLDTOUCH PARTNER’S BANQUET. Our 10-week team, REPRISE! team plus a number of CS alumni will join us for these powerful events.

ITINERARY DETAILS

Summer 2017 finds CELEBRANT SINGERS ministering coast to coast throughout 15 states and the Maritime Provinces.

In early June 2017 we’ll board our bus with its HEAVEN destination sign, and head east through the desert Southwest, across the Midwest heartland states of Kansas, Missouri and Iowa on our way to Ohio, Pennsylvania and New York.  We’ll minister every night and stay with amazing host families along the way.

We’ll end the outreach with our 40th Annual GRAND HOMECOMING CONCERT (Friday, August 11, 2017) and WORLDTOUCH PARTNERS BANQUET (Saturday, August 12, 2017) in Visalia.  This summer will be a life changing experience!

MISSIONARY SUPPORT

Participation in this summer’s outreach requires each team member to raise $4,895.00 in missionary support.  This amount is raised through gifts, offerings and donations from your church, family, friends and others interested in helping to send you out in ministry.

When the total designated amount is raised, team members travel with all living expenses paid including flights, domestic and international ground transportation, all meals, lodging, concert outfits, music, rehearsal camp costs, etc. for the duration of the outreach, as a guest of CELEBRANT SINGERS.  Monies raised and donated to CELEBRANT SINGERS for your missionary support are fully tax deductible and not refundable under any circumstances according to IRS law, as the entire amount reflects a donated gift to a non-profit 501(c)3 corporation.

Transportation to and from Rehearsal Camp is not included in the missionary support amount, nor is it tax deductible.

 

Summer REPRISE! Team – 2017

United States & Central America
Dates: July 23 to August 15, 2017

DIRECTORS: Barry & Rudolfina Sjostrand
MISSIONARY SUPPORT: $3,295.00

The summer of 2016 marks the eighth successive season of our newest CELEBRANT outreach – REPRISE!  An old English definition of REPRISE! (pronounced Repreez) means “To take back by force that which has been taken.”  The more common definition is “sing it again” or “play it again.”  Both are powerful.

The Bible says we’re to “take back” that which the enemy (Satan) has stolen. That’s exactly what will happen every day as we proclaim Jesus Lord and see people set free!  Additionally, many members of our REPRISE! team have done this kind of ministry when they were younger – or wished they had – and now they have another chance!  Another chance to sing and play God’s praises and engage in frontline ministry!

Led by long-time Celebrant veterans, Barry & Rudolfina Sjostrand, REPRISE! provides opportunity for those whose life circumstances only allow for short term involvement, to make a difference in this world.

All singers, instrumentalists and technicians who have been selected by audition and have raised their needed financial support, will meet in Visalia, California on July 23, 2017, for a super-concentrated, intensive 5-day rehearsal and training camp.

After learning the music (in Spanish too!), developing our sound, and bonding as a team, our first service will be in the greater Visalia, CA area on July 28, 2017.  We’ll then minister in the Los Angeles area on the weekend before flying out of LAX on July 31, 2017 for ten days of amazing ministry!

CELEBRANT SINGERS are well known in Central America and the people’s response is strong.  Our sponsors are longtime friends of the ministry and they love having Celebrants come down.  Plans are underway for a very strong outreach.

On August 10, 2016 we’ll fly back to Los Angeles for a day off followed by a weekend of ministry including our 40th Annual GRAND HOMECOMING CONCERT (Friday, August 11, 2017) and WORLDTOUCH PARTNERS BANQUET (Saturday, August 12, 2017) in Visalia.  We’ll join the full summer CELEBRANT team for these powerful nights of ministry!  You’ll be free to drive or fly home on Wednesday, August 16, 2017  – though I’m sure no one will want to leave!  This summer will be life changing for time and eternity!
