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 met Keith and Melody when they came to YWAM Cimarron! Keith went fishing and I got a good picture of him cleaning his fish on the lawn faucet!! I'm STILL looking for that pic, Melody, and will get it to you someday. ;{
I remember Keith playing that old piano in the YWAM dining room and saying we should throw it out on the woodpile out back. :) My husband was the logger at the base at that time!
I loved the way Keith was not afraid to say it ~ whatever needed saying. We read many of his tracts and handed them out during our DTS outreach.
So glad for your life, Keith. We miss you.

Melody,
There is so much in my heart that I really don't know what to write except that Keith was hugely instrumental in my early relationship with God as a kid back in 1976 in Thousand Oaks, CA. I saw him numerous times and what sticks in my mind is that when the first notes were played on the piano, the atmosphere in the room, church or festival immediately changed from one of lightness to one of holiness. It was truly amazing. I'd like to say that Keith really changed my life, but I know today that it was the Holy Spirit of God. I know Keith would have us pray for that same Spirit to move in us again and quench our thirsty souls in this time of dryness and refinement. I want to thank you also Melody for all you have done in the ensuing years to bring glory to our God.

I did not know Keith personally.
However as a musician who had played and thoroughly enjoyed his music which had "opened my eye's "to the world around me in how much suffering that is going on as well as the many unsaved souls that are out there and most Christians are going to "let them drown"
They just close their eye's and "pretend the jobs done"
I have n=been motivated to "Live for Jesus "as Honeytree had written in one of her older songs
One objection that I do have is that Keith came across as arrogant and self righteous and when I had attend one his out door concerts at a Jesus rally in obisonia Pennsylvania he had hurt allot of brothers and sister by an unfair and insensitive judgment which had caused many to cry and weep and I felt in my spirit that he was completely off and did not have any business and saying and doing what he had done.

I never met Keith but his music had a great impact on my life and my daughters life. The lyrics that he wrote were to encouraging so true reading his bio was very special. He was supposed to do a concert in Pittsburgh I believe it would have been in August or September, we were so excited that we were going to finally see him in person and allow the Holy Spirit to minister to our unsaved family members, but it turned out not to happen. I still listen to his music he still has an impact on my Christian Walk. Thanks Keith and Melody

Beauty, simplicity and emotion flows through the music of Keith Green. I became a Christian around the same time of the plane crash though I was not aware of Keith Green until a few years later. I thought he was a new artist and I searched eagerly for cassette tapes of his music. Learning of the plane crash was heartbreaking and I am grateful for Keith's music and its messages. Many a tear I have shed and many praises to God have been said. Thank you.

I met Keith twice and both times was amazed at the way he took offering plus he had to repair the piano while he was performing. What a man of God he was. His music and brochures are still ministering. Have watched his teaching DVDs and they continue to minister to me and the youth group at church. Thank you Keith for giving to the Lord!!! Thanks Keith and Melody

I discovered "So You Wanna Go Back To Egypt" while attending college on a broadcast radio scholarship. A few other believers at the station had carved out a time slot to play Christian music called "Joyful Noise" on the local campus station airing on Sunday night. This was during the late 1970s and early 1980s back before such music became just another market genre for media producers and Contemporary Christian Music [CCM] became an industry.

I've always been impressed by how working for the Lord instead of men came first for Keith and everyone at Last Day Ministries. Money always took a back seat to the message and the ministry.

I graduated college in May 1982 and heard about Keith's homecoming that summer while working at my first job. From that day on, I never take a day for granted knowing that the Lord could call me home at any time.

May Jesus Christ comfort you and be all unto you that you need as you reminisce about those days 31 years ago.

I have never met Keith here on earth.I have met his heart for Jesus though right here on earth. I have an original copy of his testimony book, No compromise. I remember the first time I read it vividly. My husband and I were ministers to the street people and homeless in Baltimore for years. We were burnt out after my husband lost his two eldest children to overdoses and we were in N. Carolina at a friend’s allowing God to restore our souls. I don’t usually read a book in one day it takes me weeks but I sat and read and God restored my soul. I recently found your website and was so glad to see that this ministry is still reaching souls. I thank the Lord for you and Keith’s heart for God. Bless you

I never got to meet Keith; he died six years before I was born. But his testimony and music changed my life. I was walking through the hardest time of my life, facing choices that would mean leaving behind everything I had known. I was broken to pieces by the church, facing rejection by the people I thought were my friends, and was seriously disillusioned with everything called Christianity.
I came across Keith & Melody's biography one night, and ended up reading it from cover to cover. I didn't sleep that night. The story shook me to the core. It felt like the first bit of hope in the dark place I was living. I cried - and cried out to God like I hadn't in years.
Keith's testimony changed the course of my life. It was a turning point for me. God used his life to give me hope - to give me the courage to follow God. I'm so thankful for the message of Keith's life and death... and I can't wait to meet him someday.

I LOVE how Keith possessed the rare virtue of being crazy teachable and always willing to repent to God and man. I remember my first year at Last Days, Keith would tell me he wanted to meet with me and then would begin the meeting by saying, "Francine, I want you to speak into my life." He insisted too! (No way out w/Keith) ;) When's the last time someone asked you to speak into their life? I haven't asked anyone recently either. I saw him go the very humble road of making things right with many even if he wasn't necessarily "wrong". Rare virtue! Needed virtue in us all!
