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 was 15 at a Keith Green concert in Colorado! His music, his message and his heart changed my life. 31 years later I still listen to and sing his songs! Thank you!!!

We loved and still love and listen to his music. Always got Last Days Newsletters, and related greatly to him and his message. We had been a few years on the mission field when he died, but he made us feel like we were not alone in our radicalness, and he challenged us....huge impact. We are still sold out....I have often wondered what Keith would be like now...if he had stayed with us :-(

I heard of Keith after he passed away.
Relatively new to the faith then I became aware of his songs...and often in the middle of the night the words of a song will come to me..
"one sleepless night of anguished prayer..."
It is good to remember and to be again grateful to Jesus for the gift of Keith to the world.

I was a Freshman at the University of Alabama when someone gave me one of Keith's albums--I believe it was "NO Compromise". I got on the mailing lists and requested the other albums as they came out. I learned SO much from the newsletter!! His music and those newsletters had a lot to do with my growth as a Christian!! I was actually seriously considering coming to the ranch in Texas after I graduated when I heard what had happened--I was stunned and heartbroken, esp. for you, Melody!! I prayed and prayed for you! I graduated in August 1983, moved instead to Pensacola FL and met my husband. We have been married 29 1/2 years, have two grown Christian sons serving in the military, and although I've been an RN for almost 30 years, my heart is really in my other "job"--Praise and Worship Leader at our small but growing church!! God has used Keith's music for a specific miracle that I experienced while still in college (identifying that nightmares I was having were the "Devil's Wicked Lies") and my congregation still enjoys "Make My Life a Prayer to You" and other songs you and Keith wrote. I saw him in concert one time--in Birmingham, AL. But I look forward to singing with him to our Lord and Savior someday!! I have sometimes wondered what my life would have been like if I had gone to the ranch, but did not want to be a burden to your ministry as a new college grad at that critical time, and I think I would have missed out on having my wonderful husband and children. God knew what was best and blessed!! You are still in my prayers from time to time--you and your girls. May Jesus continue to richly bless you in all things!!

It was in March, and I was listening to my iTunes on shuffle. Never had I heard these songs in my library before, but Asleep in the Light came on and I loved it. My dad would talk of Keith Green. He was born in 1960 and loved Keith's music. Growing up, I heard parts of Keith's story through my father, and how my father was crushed when he learned of Keith's passing. But I never took the time to truly listen to his music. I'm 17, and am old enough to truly understand. After hearing Asleep in the Light, I replayed it over and over until it spoke such volumes to me that I sang it, sobbing loudly with such a passion for Jesus that I had only felt glimpses of before. Keith became all I listened to for weeks and it is regularly listened to now as well. I realized down the line that it was this man's untimely death that my father spoke of, and I, too, became crushed. I became angry. I wept and wept. I couldn't understand how God would take away a man that had so much future in His ministry, let alone his beautiful, innocent children. I hit a rough patch. Still listening to Keith's music, but feeling like God betrayed him. It didn't take too long before it all became clear to me. In watching Jesus of Nazareth with my parents in preparation for His Resurrection, my mom asked me why God didn't save Jesus from HIS untimely death and suffering. And I told her that it had to happen. And then I understood. Though we may not comprehend the reasons, God has them. Nothing he does is unimportant. Nothing we go through won't help us in our paths to where we are supposed to be as long as our intentions are centered around love, for God is love. Trust Him. He knows all, and we do not. I understood this. I feel called towards something, and I'm not quite sure what it is, but I will find it. I still have time. I am a vocalist and have been so moved as to teach myself Easter Song on the piano. One day, I hope to learn many of his songs and perform them as Keith did, for no profit, just to share the Word and the Love that is Jesus Christ. Keith's music moves me and humbles me in a powerful way.

I just loved Keith's passion and his music. Loved the message and the words. I love Melody's music too, and still sing to myself II Chronicles 16:9 song and others! A couple weeks ago, I was in Lindale Tx. visiting family. So my mom and I finally found Keith's gravesite after getting lost a night! We stood by the grave and prayed for all of our own children, to know the Lord in a real way, to be transformed by YHWH! Something I believe was Keith's heartcry for others! That was a very powerful moment. A memorable man. A memorable mission.A memorable moment!

I cant ever remember a time,when Keith Greens music hasn't been a part of my life(39 years). When I was around 8-9. The whole family drove from Texas to Florida and we listened to a Keith Green cassette the whole way there (and back im sure) My Dad would just keep flipping the tape over to the other side.
But nothing it better than finding Keith Greens songs on my teenagers Ipods!

My youth group would go down to Calvary Chapel Costa Mesa every Saturday night for the concerts; we heard Keith in concert there in 1974 or 1975. I was on the Last Days Ministries mailing list when newly married. Songs for the Shepherd was the album that really ministered to me and I identified with Keith and Melody because my son Christopher was Bethany's age. Christopher means "Christ-bearer" and when we named him, Keith and Melody's songs were in my heart - sang them all day long. Keith passed away when I was expecting my daughter, Melody. A few days before, my brothers and I had sung Until That Final Day, my favorite of Keith's songs for 150 high school campers at camp in Sebastopol, CA. I had never met Melody but she was on my heart all that summer. I prayed for her and for little Rebecca and soon-to-be-born Rachel. And when my daughter was born in December of that year, I named her Melody. God keeps people on our hearts in wonderful ways. Years later, my daughter Melody and Rebecca & Rachel attended Monte Vista Christian in Watsonville, CA together. Even though I miss Keith and his ministry, Melody, you have been the one that God has kept always in my prayers. I am so thankful you have remained faithful to speak and sing His praises. That video of your daughter singing Rushing Wind was such a blessing. And I am still reminded every day because of Keith's music ministry that "I wrestle not with flesh and blood, my fight is with the one who lost the keys of hell and death to God's most precious Son." AMEN!

Keith's music was a great influence on us as we were hearing a call to missions through the word of God and Keith's music kept confirming our call! At one of the Memorial Concerts we committed ourselves to the call! We spent twenty years serving Jesus cross culturally as a result! Thank you Keith and Melody for speaking it out through your music and your life!

My brother, Ed used to listen to Keith Green when he was in high school. My brother listened to him, Amy Grant, David Meece and Benny Hester, I loved to listen to their music because I was praising God through the songs they were singing. Keith Green was my favorite though, he sang songs that cut through to your soul and made you realize that just because you went to church didn't mean you were a Christian just like going to McDonald's doesn't make you a hamburger, I laughed when he said it, but he is right. The only way to get to heaven is through Christ and you MUST except him into your heart. I did with the help of my brother and the songs I listened to and even though Keith is gone, his songs and his thoughts live on. The devil could not crush his spirit, and I am glad he left a legacy for other generations to hear.
