Internationally known artists, Jim and Jean Strathdee sing with thousands of people each year as they offer their music in concerts, worships, conferences, retreats, and workshops. Most often they travel throughout the United States and Canada, but over the 40-year-span of their ministry, they have shared their music in India, New Zealand, Cuba, and Central America.
Jean and Jim have a special gift for encouraging folks to sing with them. Much of the music they write and perform is designed for congregational singing. They also love to work with local singers to create a choir for their events.
Their music spans a diversity of sound and style and includes use of guitar, piano, mandolin, harmonica, African drums and Native American flute. They see their music as an agent of personal and social transformation and are involved with fund- and consciousness-raising events where ecumenical and inter-faith communities come together to make a stand for positive change.
Jim and Jean have served on the staff of United Methodist churches in southern and northern California and Hawaii. They currently are working full-time in their road ministry and make their home near Sacramento. California. Their music is published in dozens of songbooks, curriculum projects, denominational hymnbooks and supplements and is sung on six continents. They have written hundreds of hymns, songs and anthems and recorded nearly 20 albums. [From their website]
