(NASHVILLE, Tennessee) — For the fifth year in a row, Christian singer-songwriter and children’s worship expert Yancy has partnered with Standard Publishing to write and produce all-new original music for their popular Vacation Bible School curriculum. 2016’s Deep Sea Discovery VBS program, which will also include contributions from missionary/author Beth Guckenberger of Back2Back Ministries, is packed with fun and adventure, teaching kids that “God KNOWS me, HEARS me, STRENGTHENS me, LOVES me and SENDS me.”

“This is the fifth year that Standard Publishing has asked me to create original music and videos for their VBS program,” says Yancy. “I’m honored to continue this partnership, and I love creating resources for the local church that affect the lives of kids around the world. I am passionate about having great songs and media to reach this generation. I believe in the power of music and know that it will reinforce the lessons, and relationships that kids will experience at VBS.”

Taking its theme from Genesis 28:15, Deep Sea Discovery VBS focuses on one important truth for kids: God is with me and will watch over me wherever I go! Each day, kids dive into God’s presence by delving deep into His Word to see how He has been with his people every step of the way. They will get to know God is always with them, explore God’s presence in their lives, and serve God by serving others. Hands-on service projects and sea science will help kids experience a VBS adventure like no other, and they’ll leave each day ready to set sail to serve others and tell God’s story.

Deep Sea Discovery VBS products consist of a comprehensive kit and over 40 other resources. The kit is packed with everything needed to plan and lead a VBS or family ministry event. It includes the Director’s Guide, Planning Disc Set, Music Disc Set, all leader’s guides and cards, student books, Age-level Resources Disc Set, Decorating Resource Pack, and four poster packs.

“Another important element in making our VBS program so engaging, and its messages so impactful, is the quality of our freely reproducible music,” said Laura Hannah, Vice President of Marketing at Standard Publishing. “This can make the songs that are sung available to every child to take home. We are thrilled to partner again with kid-favorite worship leader, Yancy.”

Deep Sea Discovery VBS also offers a unique special needs sensory station, named Breakaway Bay, where kids with special sensory needs can experience an oasis of calm in the busy world of VBS, while still learning the same lessons and participating in the activities all the other kids are doing. Kids can come and go as needed to the site with their designated partners, called Diving Buddies.

TAS cover NEW 10-6 navy(NASHVILLE, Tennessee) — In anticipation of the February 10th release of Little Praise Party: Taste and See, Yancy has released a new promotional video, including testimonies from parents, pastors and recording artist Jaci Velasquez. View the video here: http://youtu.be/aJ4iiG1LRRk.

“Little Praise Party started as a collection of songs for my local church to use,” says Yancy. “It’s been amazing to see how God has used those songs in churches and homes around the world.”

Taste and See, the fourth release in the popular worship music series for young children, will be available on CD and DVD, featuring 15 easy-to-sing songs (plus two bonus tracks exclusively available at iTunes). The Little Praise Party series is available online and in Christian bookstores everywhere via Elevate Entertainment and Syntax Distribution. For church and classroom use, there is also a Church DVD available that includes all 15 songs plus the soundtracks, mp4 files and a group viewing license.

“Hearing children sing God’s praises never gets old,” says Yancy. “And it gives me chills hearing their sweet little voices sing their love to the Lord. Music is a powerful thing. It’s an important tool that we have to use in our homes and churches to plant Biblical truth in the hearts of kids. It’s the very reason we started making Little Praise Party music.”

Yancy’s Little Praise Party series engages kids from the very start with non-stop sing-along fun for the entire family. In addition to CDs, each project in the series has a companion DVD filled with exciting animation with on-screen lyrics to help visualize the words and stories portrayed within the songs. The popular Little Praise Party app, available in both iOS & Android formats, features new videos each month in English and Spanish.

“I introduced my kids to Little Praise Party, from Yancy, and it’s really adorable listening to them sing their songs,” said recording artist Jaci Velasquez. “As a mom, my hope and my prayer is that everything that I’m putting into my kids is positive and good and encouraging and hopeful. Because whatever goes in, comes out.”

“We need to begin the process of passing on our faith and Christian values to our children at an early age,” says Yancy. “We really can’t start too soon. My heart and prayer is that this generation would Taste and See that the Lord is good.”

For more than a decade, Yancy has been making music for Christian music fans of all ages. As a songwriter, she has penned songs with Third Day frontman Mac Powell, wrote the Jaci Velasquez hit “Something Beautiful” and Avalon’s chart-topping “I Don’t Want To Go.” As an artist, Yancy has released radio-friendly pop/rock albums and multiple projects for kids and young adults, while sharing the stage with Michael W.

Yancy Featured In Entre Niños

December 16th, 2014

Yancy and her Spanish album “Pequeña Fiesta de Alabanza” was featured in the Entre Niños Magazine. You can learn more about this Spanish ministry for kids and see the magazine and Yancy’s interview at www.entreninos.com.

Yancy Invites Kids Everywhere to ‘Taste and See’ the Newest Addition to the Little Praise Party Series on February 10th

(NASHVILLE, Tennessee) – Yancy returns February 10th with Little Praise Party: Taste and See – the fourth release in the popular worship music series for young children. The album and companion DVD include 15 easy-to-sing songs, with two bonus tracks exclusively available at iTunes. The Little Praise Party series is available online and in Christian bookstores everywhere via Elevate Entertainment and Syntax Distribution.

Yancy’s Little Praise Party series engages kids from the very start with non-stop sing-along fun for the entire family. In addition to CDs, each project in the series has a companion DVD filled with exciting animation with on-screen lyrics to help visualize the words and stories portrayed within the songs. As a mom herself, Yancy definitely knows what it takes to keep kids simultaneously entertained and uplifted. There’s even an entire Spanish-language collection of Little Praise Party favorites called Pequeña Fiesta de Alabanza, which features vocal production from Jaci Velasquez and Salvador’s Nic Gonzales.

“The new Little Praise Party album is called Taste and See, which is a major point on my heart right now,” says Yancy. “I know the power of music and love the fact that the songs I write have the potential to plant seeds in the hearts of people. I want this generation to taste and see that the Lord is good, and if they do that at an early age, I believe they’ll be able to have the relationship they need to have with the Lord so it doesn’t turn into one of those sad stories you hear about people turning their backs on their faith later in life.”

 

The new album features guest appearances by Chris Lockwood (formerly of 33 Miles), Erskin Anavitarte and renowned children’s ministry leader Jim Wideman (Yancy’s father), who has appeared on all of the Little Praise Party releases. The popular Little Praise Party app (which features new videos each month in English and Spanish), available in both iOS & Android formats, will also be adding new videos from the latest project.

For church and classroom use, there is also a Church DVD available that includes all 15 songs plus the soundtracks, mp4 files and a group viewing license.

For more than a decade, Yancy has been making a wide range of music that has found an audience with Christian music fans of all ages. Upon arriving in Nashville, Yancy quickly became one of Music City’s most sought after songwriters, co-writing songs with Third Day frontman Mac Powell, penning the Jaci Velasquez hit “Something Beautiful” and the chart-topping, ASCAP Award-winning song “I Don’t Want To Go” for Avalon’s Grammy and Dove nominated Oxygen album. As an artist, Yancy has released radio-friendly pop/rock albums and multiple projects for kids and young adults, while sharing the stage with Michael W. Smith, Newsboys, Plumb and many more.

Yancy Ministries is rapidly becoming a premiere destination for uplifting entertainment and church resources used all across the globe. Above and beyond the worldwide distribution of the Little Praise Party CD/DVDs, Yancy pens a monthly column for KidzMatter Magazine, and has written and produced the music and videos for Standard Publishing’s Vacation Bible School curriculum since 2012, which also features author and missionary Beth Guckenberger of Back2Back Ministries and reaches over 1,000,000 kids each year.

Yancy continues to tour year-round, from family concerts to confereces to leading worship for youngsters at mega-churches such as Hillsong Church (Sydney), Lakewood Church (Houston), Prestonwood Baptist (Dallas) and Northpoint Community Church (Atlanta), among others.

“Yancy Ministries exists to make Jesus loud, whether that’s through songs, videos, devotionals, training or family concerts,” explains Yancy. “A love and passion for Jesus is at the core of everything we do. We want to encourage whole families to love God with all their heart, spending time singing God’s praises, and celebrating all that He has done.”

NASHVILLE, Tennessee) — Worship House Media has announced that Yancy, Christian music’s reigning queen of diversity, has been named the recipient of the 2014 Producer Award for “Kids Video of the Year.” Yancy won for her video of the Chris Tomlin-penned song, “Our God,” which is featured on her 2013 album release, Jesus Music Box (Elevate Entertainment / Syntax Distribution).

The award is given out each year to the top-selling video on www.WorshipHouseKids.com, a member of the Salem Church Products family. This marks the third year in a row that Yancy has taken home the coveted Producer Award in the Kids Video category.

“Awards are really cool but the lives represented by winning this award are what it’s all about,” said Yancy. “I’m so thankful to create worship resources that churches can use and that kids love. Helping kids connect to God by worshipping Him is one of my greatest joys.”

Jesus Music Box and Yancy’s other releases, including this year’s Spanish language project, Pequeña Fiesta de Alabanza!, are available now wherever Christian music is sold.

For more than a decade, Yancy has released radio-friendly pop/rock albums and multiple projects for kids and young adults, all while sharing the stage with such artists as Michael W. Smith, Newsboys, Mute Math and Nichole Nordeman. As a writer, Yancy has teamed up with Third Day’s Mac Powell, wrote Avalon’s #1 hit “I Don’t Want To Go” and Jaci Velasquez’s “Something Beautiful,” among others.

Yancy Goes Bilingual

July 17th, 2014

7d6f7439-763c-47cc-87eb-9489091f0518_zps03ebc12cYancy’s popular Little Praise Party app is getting a bilingual upgrade with the addition of songs from her new Spanish-language children’s album, Pequeña Fiesta de Alabanza! The free app, available for iOS and Android, is a wonderful resource for praise sing-along fun on the go.

For the very first time this month, Yancy’s Little Praise Party app is featuring a song in Spanish, with plans to feature songs in both English and Spanish every month going forward

“This is not just for the Spanish-speaking world,” says Yancy. “I believe that this will be a great tool for kids to learn Spanish by hearing and singing along in both languages. We have so many app users that are homeschoolers or involved in secondary education, and this will be a great fit!”

Expanding beyond her English fan base, Yancy’s Pequeña Fiesta de Alabanza! takes some of the most popular songs from her Little Praise Party series and translates them into Spanish. The result is a fun collection of 15 songs that will warm the hearts of kids and their parents too – thanks in part to appearances by hit makers Jaci Velasquez and Nic Gonzales (Salvador).

The CD/DVD set, which also features animated music videos (one for each song!) that are sure to capture the imagination of children, is available now online and in Christian bookstores everywhere via Elevate Entertainment and Syntax Distribution.

In addition to her new album release, and heavy touring, Yancy is continuing her partnership with Standard Publishing. As in previous years, Yancy has created eight brand-new songs and music videos for Standard Publishing’s 2015 Vacation Bible School program, Bible Blast to the Past – discovering God’s everlasting love – featuring Yancy’s jam-worthy worship music and kid-relevant missions moments from Beth Guckenberger and Back2Back Ministries.
