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 saved in July/82 and then got married in Sept/82 in California.
when we got saved we came to know Keith Green's music, I can't remember how we came in contact with his music but fell in love with his message and style..we just loved it and got all his albums. We are from ontario canada but travelled in a vw van and got saved in california. When we came back to ontario, my bf then, now hubby,his sister accepted the Lord. It was till years later we found out that SHE listened to Keith's music as well thru her relationship with the Lord and passed it onto her son!! who is very much into a music ministry as a youth pastor as well and also influenced by Keith Green's music!!..and now he has 2 boys of his own and also passing it on!!..a tradition in our family now it seems...that is Keith's legacy to our family. And i have 2 teenage daughters who both love Keith Green. My eldest has his music on cds and listens to him as well with her other music!!..I am a very happy mommy...! thank you Keith for listening to the Lord and thank you Lord for loaning him to us for such a short time..God sure is good. Keep up the work, Melody. God will keep blessing..

Keith was one of the first Contemporary Christian Singers my wife & I listened to. The first album (LP) we had was the one with the Goats & Sheep song on it. Even better than the music we quickly saw Keith was a great inspiring & Awesome Christian man & minister. We ordered & used with youth in our church the many pamphlets Keith put out. I still miss him as I know you,Melody do more. He made a big difference in shaping my early Christian life & ministry. N4YAR 5FTU8

Keith played the Dorton Arena in Raleigh, NC a few months prior to him going to be with the LORD. A group of friends...we all went to see him perform...amazing. We were all fans of his ministry and his music. The concert was such a BLESSING...and that blessing continues today. Thank you Melody for your heart to share your and Keith's talents and gifts with the world to the glory of the LORD.

I found Keith's first album when I was a relatively new Christian and his music really expressed the passion and longing in my heart. I too am a Messianic Jew like Keith and was thrilled to know there was someone else out there like me. In 1980 I was working for CCM magazine and had the privilege of driving up their feature interview of Keith and Melody to a house in Woodland Hills for them both to go over. Melody had just given birth to Bethany and I got there a few hours early. I got to spend time with Josiah and Dawn and pray with Keith and Melody's Last Days ministries before I left. Not too soon thereafter, he and his two youngest children were killed in a small plane crash. I felt like I had lost a friend. To this day, nothing makes me feel closer to the Lord or helps me to worship like Keith Green's music. I also got to see in at Knotts Berry Farm in Jubilation 78 where he had the entire audience on their knees repenting! I wish we had more firebrands like Him. He truly burned himself out in the service of the Lord.

I'm from Ontario, Canada born in 1993 and a Keith Green tape was my first cassette that I ever got of my own. I listened to it none stop as a little 8 year old girl. I thought I was so cool singing Keith Green songs so everyone could hear.
God saved me as a young child and allowed Keith Green, even though he had passed away, to impact my life. I was drawn into a deeper worship with God and join Keith in the reality of Jesus Christ. Keith challenged me to "pledge my head to heaven". I could not find anyone around me in the faith to look up to, Keith challenged me not to settle but to lay my life down for Christ and His church. I thank God for what he did in and through Keith Green. Now I'm 20 years old working as a nurse and still singing Keith Green songs in worship to our King.

My husband introduced me to Keith's music and ministry. We used to be bulk distributers of the newsletter. We both felt very strongly about the message it was getting out. We went to a memorial concert and we tried to join YWAM, but having kids kind of put a nix on it. When Keith died we were devastated and felt the loss of a great messenger. We named our next baby after one of the ones you lost. We named her Bethany Lael ....She is grown now and has two daughters of her own with a third on the way. She is a wonderful woman of God. Thank you for sharing your family with us.

After being born again in '90 I was given a tape with a collection of Keith Green songs. As a young Christian, I really took to heart all the attitudes of heart and the Lord used it as a call to REPENTANCE many times. Whether it was to have a heart for the poor or complaining or to not be lazy and take the Good news to the lost. Thank you Lord Jesus for Keith Green - and I still never wanna go back to Egypt!

I saw Keith back in the late 1970's when he came to San Jose Bible College. I received for quite a while the Last Days Newsletters, which I really enjoyed. His songs were so important to me then, because there weren't many contemporary artists to see then, unlike now. You both challenged me in my Christian walk and I was sorry to hear when he died. You guys walked the talk and it was a large impression on my life. May God continue to bless you!

I was saved when He was going strong and Keith always brought me to a personal place with the Lord and my walk with God, leading me to serve Him in a way which only Keith's music would bring me to- in humbleness. His music, to this day, challenges me to look at my walk and how I am serving God and every time I put Keith on in my car, I am so blessed or convicted, it brings me back to Gods Word and His feet. :) Thanks for continuing Keith's music, Melody.

I will never forget the time I was listening to a Keith Green song on the radio while I was getting ready to go minister to children. I was working at the Neighborhood Church Day Camp in Chico, CA. The song had to do with our devotion to Jesus. I don't remember the name of the song. But the Lord was speaking to my heart about my service to HIM. I just remembered how the song spoke to me that day "LIVE FOR JESUS!!" that was Keith's message to the world. If he was alive today he would say the same message, "JESUS IS WORTH IT!! LIVE FOR HIM!" Keith impacted so many lives -- his life and ministry and music is still impacting lives for CHrist. :) In 2000-2001 I was teaching second grade at Calvary Christian School. I would play Keith Green CDs the Ministry Years for my students. They loved the cds. I played those cds all the time! In fact one of my students wanted her mom to buy her a Keith Green cd for her birthday. Her mom called me and asked me if I could find the cds for her and she would pay me back.

A good friend of mine told me she remembered seeing Keith Green live on Chico State campus years ago in Northern CAlifornia. I am willing to bet he planted such a big harvest on that campus-- I got saved when I was at Chico State in 1991.

I am so grateful for Keith and Melody Green-- their music and ministry has made eternal differences in the lives of hundreds -- probably thousands of people all over. Blessings on you Melody!!
