Still Speaking after 31 Years in Heaven

Share Your Memories of Keith Green



Keith Green FB Share Your Memo
We want to give everyone an opportunity to share their memories of how Jesus used Keith to impact their life.  And gather all the stories in one place for everyone to enjoy. 

Keith sure impacted my life.  After Jesus, he was my biggest influence.  Keith modeled giving everything to Jesus, not wanting celebrity, caring for the poor, taking people off the streets, and reaching into prisons.  We did that from the start together. 

I would love to know what your story is.  How did Keith impact your life?  Were you at a concert?  Was it through the music?  Are you in ministry?  On the mission field? 

How did Keith impact you, and what are you doing now that you think you might not be doing — if not for his influence? 

Please share your story in the comment section below.
 
I’ll start!

I got into contact with Keith Green in the early 80's after coming back as an MK )Missionary kid) from India. Listened to "Songs for the Shepherd" and was immediately touched by Keith's passion. His radical lifestyle and life's message touched me. Materials & books from LDM helped to want to live radical (Ravenhill) and balanced me in other areas (Verwer). I don't know whether my life would have taken the turn without Keith and Melody's example. I'm a pastor and leader of leaders in Germany now and thank God for the ministry of Keith in my life.

I gave my life to Jesus in 1975. I was 20. Loving Rock music I was looking for a rockish type of christian music. There really wasn't any. Started working with youth and was handed a cassette tape with "You Put This Love In My Heart" and "Your Love Broke Through" (which became my theme song.. because it described my life). I was told it was Keith Green. I bought a record album "For Him Who Has Ears To Hear." In one of the early albums, I received LDM News letter info. Saw Keith at a concert in MIchigan the summer of '80. Right around that time prayed and contemplated coming to Lindale TX to hook up with LDM, but the Lord directed me to college. His music and writing was captivating. I often think of Keith as more of prophet than just musician. His convictions were powerful and his message was moving. We wept when we heard of the plan crash. It was a summer of joy and sorrow for us. I finished college and got my first teaching job. Keith left us the end of July 1982 and a few weeks later my dad passed away. His music/message has stayed with us and ministered to us these past 31 years in the valley times and on the mountaintop times. We have been so blessed. Thank you Melody for keeping his message alive for this new generation to hear and know. This weekend, Rushing Wind, will be one of the songs in our worship set at church. To God Be The Glory!

I walked into the Baptist Bookstore at Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary in Fort Worth, TX and learned that Keith Green and others had died in a plane crash. More than any other celebrity death, his truly shocked me. Though I had just begun to collect his music, I truly believed he was a prophet for our times. Thirty years later I am still moved to faith & action by his words. For the last 7 years I was a missionary to South Korea and one of the things I shared with my students was Keith's music. Father I thank you for Keith's life and testimony and how You are still using him to lead others to a No Compromise relationship with Your Son Jesus.

My dad used to play records of Keith Green (and others) every Sunday morning as we would get ready for church. I remember crying when my dad told me that Keith had died in an accident. I'm not sure why I cried, since I had never met the man, except that his music ministered to my spirit. I am 37 now and I still love to listen to Keith's music. Although, I listen on a CD instead of a record. :)

I remember when Keith died, even though I didn't listen to much music at the time. I went to a Christian high school and everyone was talking about his death. It wasn't until 1988 that I started listening to his music, and I was blown away by his lyrics, emotion and most of all, his candor. The way he let God work through him was amazing. One of my best friends had the pleasure of picking Keith up at the airport when he came to do a concert at Rex Hummbard's Cathedral of Tomorrow in Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio. He described Keith just as I had read about him in "No Compromise" - only focused on God, nothing else. My friend tried to make small talk about Los Angeles baseball, and Keith told him that he didn't have time to think or worry about sports. If only more of us gave our lives COMPLETELY to Jesus in the manner that Keith did.... Thank you Melody for keeping his vision alive to this day. God Bless.

first memory was singing "I want to, I need to, Be more like Jesus" at 2 yrs. old - grew up listening to him as a child, (born in 81) and his music kept me from the "rebelling teen years" - and now as a mother of 4, my children are singing his songs and it's such wonderful re-focus on the LORD and HIS will for this world,
and the NO COMPROMISE stand. Praise the Lord for his life, Melody, the children and the ministry. "I can't wait to get to heaven, where He'll wipe away all my tears in 6 days He created everything, but He's been working on Heaven a thousand years!" :)

I heard Keith's music as a new christian back in the 80's. I drifted away, but never forgot Keith's passion. When the Lord drew me back to him, Keith's music helped me again, even inspiring me to learn piano. It was time to find a new church, and my first day in a church in 15 years, satan tried to push me out, by getting me there at the wrong time. The service was ending, and everybody in it was 80 years old. Turns out, it was the 1st service, and the next one started in a few minutes! During that service, our pastor quoted Keith, and even had his picture on the screen. It was the only time such a reference was ever made....and I was there. Month's later, I was volunteering at the local Christian radio station. I was a call supervisor...not really answering phones. I did take one call that day however, and after the donor pledged his money he asked, "do you have any old tapes or cd's you want to give away....I'm looking for some Keith Green." God is truly amazing and he has used Keith and Melody's music in a mighty way in my life. Mel, thank you for being there, and offering some closer for me in this. Love you.

I was in undergrad college when I first heard Keith's music ('80). I was at America for Jesus in Washington DC and heard him sing and speak at RFK Stadium. His commitment to repentance made a huge impact on my faith. I was blessed to spend 2 weeks at LDM - helping on printing newsletters, moving donated lumber, etc. Having a little time one evening talking with Keith allowed me to see that his "stage persona" was no different than who he was at home. A humble man of God, totally sold out. I've now been a psychologist and addiction counselor for 30 years, and I hear nuggets of God's truth that came from Keith's lyrics, articles and teachings come out of my mouth to this day. His modeling has and will impact me my whole life.
