VBS 17 Announcement

August 23rd, 2016


Recently, I have received many VBS questions and now that this summer’s official VBS season is nearly done, I wanted to let every know our plans for 2017 VBS. 

I am so thankful for the last five years partnering with Standard Publishing (now Christian Standard Media) VBS. This last year was the best ever many of you have sent me great stories about the impact on your kid’s lives. Unfortunately because of major changes within their company, I will not be involved in a VBS program for 2017. 

If you are a VBS leader, I know you are a great planner and understand that publishers are making plans now for their 2018 VBS. If music from Yancy Ministries has worked well  for you in the past, I would appreciate you letting your favorite VBS publisher know right now that you would like to see Yancy music in their VBS program.  It is time to make your voice heard. That will really help us get things rolling for the future to find a new partner and home for my music to be included in a VBS program. 

It is my honor and joy to create music resources for the Church. Thank you for your continued support and use of resources from Yancy Ministries!


P.S. In a few months, I’ll be sending out suggestions of my songs that will work great with many of the 2017 themes. I hope you will consider adding our music into the program you choose.

I’m writing you today on one hand filled with much excitement. Over a year ago I started a project. The idea was to write songs based on scriptures that I wanted to make sure my son would know. If something happened to me what are the scriptures that I’d want him to learn and be aware of? So, I made a list and I started writing songs about those scriptures and Biblical truths. God’s Word is nothing new. It’s been around for thousands of years. God’s Word is not by accident, each word was crafted and inspired with every detail thought through. For a Christian the Bible is a must. It is where we learn how to live. It’s where we get instruction for what to do. The Bible is eternal and it was written for all of us. Young and old, Mature and Baby Christians, even those who haven’t called on the name of the Lord to be saved can learn how to be saved with the truth of God’s Word.

I’m excited because “Roots for the Journey” is finally a reality. Today is release day. Woo hoo….party….jump up and down! Finally :-) I’m happy that all of you can finally hear this music. This record I believe has a greater story then what is just captured within the minutes of each song. The album is filled with God’s Word. That is what it’s all about. The music is way different from anything you’ve heard from me in a long time. Acoustics: unplugged, organic, and simple. This record is filled with hope and trust. Already in my life I’ve been able to share these songs with someone who needed a specific scripture to stand on as they face the mountains in their life. I believe this is only the beginning. Even as I write this morning saddened because of the realization of all the devastation and lives lost that happened in Oklahoma yesterday, I realize that God’s timing is perfect. Several of these songs fit that situation. Of of them is the song “Safe”. Yesterday the video premiered on http://www.newreleasetuesday.com and today that same site starts a FREE DOWNLOAD of the song http://www.newreleasetuesday.com/freemusic.php Go get it, spread the word to anyone you know who can benefit. Those “plans” were made before anything happened yesterday. We make our plans in life but it is God who directs us. I believe it’s by no accident that today as so many people wake up shaken from the events “Safe” is a song that can speak to their nerves and remind them they are in God’s hands. This is only the beginning. “Roots for the Journey” is all about speaking God’s Word over your life. Reminding yourself of what the Bible says about you and your life, not just what your reality is. As you sing along in faith I know the mountains of your life can move and fall into the sea. Please, please, please take a moment to consider this music for you, your family and your friends. I can’t wait to see how these songs continue to fit hand in hand with life. God is so cool. His promises are for us today just as much as the day they were written in the Bible. God’s Word is the roots for the journey that we need.
