Highlights and Prayers

Benefit Concert Program

  • Amanda Schroeder, More than Music's hard working Event Specialist, has been lining up benefit concerts that will be produced by More than Music for other worthy nonprofits over the next five years. We are so excited to see such amazing organizations joining forces with our own. This has long since been our goal: to use music as a means of marrying ministry with the money it needs. We are finally fulfilling that call! With $110,000 raised for amazing worthy causes through our benefit concert program since 2010, we are ecstatic to see those numbers crushed in the next couple years. Can't wait to tell you more!

Juvenile Detention Center Ministry

  • More than Music is so excited to be making inroads with the MN chapter of Youth for Christ. We have two concerts scheduled for the coming weeks in the Juvenile Detention Center MN YFC works within. (See 'Digs on Gigs' listing). It's about time we did that, eh? Yes, and with that, you can tell some us are from MN.
  • We have officially set a goal of launching the Toy Soldier 1280 Program by the Spring of 2016. This means we will have to have at least $100,000 in the bank dog eared specifically for this to adequately cover the first years' program expenses. We will then hire the needed Program Director and plant our first five Christ-based mentorship programs in juvenile detention centers that first year, six in the second, seven in the third, eight in the fourth, and ten in the fifth, reaching over 26,000 young people with a transforming message of hope and healing just in those first five years.Look for more about this and how you can help shortly!

Pray for many to come forward in support of this work. There are 1,280 juvenile detention centers across the United States. There are so many young people in need of real, healing relationship. THIS is our nation's fatherless and WE CAN HELP.

  • We have been having meetings with the US President of Youth for Christ Juvenile Justice Ministries, Eric Kelly, planning and discussing our collaboration as we move towards the Toy Soldier 1280 Program's launch. YFCJJM is ready to help us with accountability, background checks, discipleship and training for the mentors we recruit and the programs we plant. We are so thankful for their investment in this work.

Eric recently submitted this endorsement of our work:

"In the last several years, we have watched Stephanie Pauline and More than Music capture the attention of hardened young men and women inside juvenile detention centers in The US. Stephanie's willingness to share her story of overcoming domestic violence, drug abuse, and an unplanned pregnancy creates an opportunity for young people to then share their own stories. Youth for Christ Juvenile Justice Ministry is grateful for ministries like More than Music who willingly meet teens in very tough places, and we appreciate that More than Music helps organizations like ours gain further access to the hearts and minds of incarcerated teenagers. Like Johnny Cash did in his time with incarcerated adults, Stephanie Pauline and More than Music seeks to engage young people in detention centers and helps open the doors for ministries like Youth for Christ to provide ongoing programming and follow-up on the opportunities for healing created through More than Music concerts."

-Eric Kelly, National Director-Juvenile Justice Ministries

Our Sending Agency Work, Music and Art   

  • This is the arm of MtM through which Stephanie Pauline does her music. This has been a big part of what has made MtM financially stable over the years as she has chosen to waive her salary as the President of MtM and even as an artist giving all music royalties and money earned to MtM to further this work.

She has been continuing her musical endeavors and has performed several concerts in a few different states the last month or so. With the recent announcement that she is due to have her third child April 15th, she is showing no signs so far of slowing down. With a robust tour schedule planned for this next month, promoting MtM and her Christmas CD, she will have several mini tours into Jan and Feb, and will be manning the growing MtM crew up till her due date and beyond. She plans to take a few months off to huddle and cuddle her wee one (while still doing some managerial work remotely) and will be back on tour, Lord willing, in the fall of 2015. 

  • MtM continues to be open to supporting missions projects and artists (music and otherwise) through our Independent Sending Agency/Missions Facilitation Work. If you have a project or mission you want to see brought to pass, perhaps it fits the heart of what we doing in the world. Tell us all about it and click here to find out more!

 From the Heart

 By Stephanie Pauline

NAIL US DOWN: Offending All Equally
Let me be clear: I am a Christ follower. I am also a curious seeker. A student of many fields. I am a mother. A wife. A friend. A daughter. An artist. A jerk. A royal jerk sometimes. ;) I am a person. I don't know if you experience your life in this way, but I often feel like I'm in a constant tug of war, but I am the rope being pulled at by all sides.

In this world people want static definitions. Pat answers. Simple ways of comprehending and sorting information. People get lumped into that mix. Who are you? Quick. In five seconds or less, let me see your credentials pasted on your chest now - sum yourself up. It is impossible. As a member of the music industry, and a widely accepted musician within the Christian music industry at that, this demand for static categories can become that much more rigid.

I hate categories. I see the need for them, but I also know inherently that as soon as you set up parameters like that, someone or something is going to slip through the cracks.

I recently had a friend and supporter step back because More than Music produced a benefit concert that did not begin and end with prayer, as some of ours do. It was a folk concert. A simple, straightforward, deep, poignant, powerful folk concert. I must say, it blessed my socks off. I loved that very concert. I loved that we had all kinds of people present, and some of them didn't, perhaps, subscribe to the same beliefs as I, yet we all held time, space, and enjoyment together. We found the common bond in this radical, mystical experience of humanity, and for a moment, striving, pain, and distraction eased and presence was felt by all. 

Just to set the record straight let me share...
More than Music is a 501 (c)(3) nonprofit organization built on Christian principles, by definition. We have our doctrines of faith clearly listed online and you can view them and try to nail us down HERE, if you would like. Specifically, our mission is "to revolutionize the culture at large one heart at a time, until everyone on earth knows and lives the love that is in Jesus Christ." We believe in the amazing truth we have experienced from what we know of God and Jesus and what we have learned through the Bible - yes. AND we also believe in the power of the action of love moving in real time, in real tangible ways. We help people of all kinds, all beliefs, all cultures and we celebrate sharing truth and love even in bite sized pieces; in a coat given to a cold man, a tree planted in Kenya, a free meal, given with joy, to a family in need in Georgia, or even imbuing others with hope and courage by the simple radiance of a truly kind gaze. We have faith for that kind of giving. It doesn't always have to be grand, or even cloaked in commonly Christian frameworks, to hold sway with us. We believe the fruit speaks for itself, and that all truth and love comes from God.

I, personally, have been known to joke that I have a very inclusive approach to spirituality: I equally value offending Christians and non Christians alike. LOL. Now, don't worry, that is just said in jest. I actually, in general, hate offending others, but I have found sometimes it is absolutely necessary, as sometimes people are offended simply by your being whatever it is you are. Either it is too this, or too that, or not enough of this, or not quite what was expected. If your conscience is clear - and you are following faith, then really, what does that matter at all? It doesn't.

So here's the deal; please don't make me any one thing. I am an artist and I work for and with MtM, but my art transcends boundaries, as all art should. And please, don't unduly limit More than Music. We will do our very best to uphold the principles upon which we were founded, and clearly not do anything to hinder that deeper purpose. That said, let us be humans running this organization, please. And let us meet humanity just as it is. We believe the power to share love happens there.

If you want our credentials pasted like a badge on our chests, don't be surprised if we laugh and point out our weaknesses. We believe that in them, Christ is strong, and that is enough for us. If you want to categorize us, consider the one we are doing our best to follow: Jesus...

A man, yet deity. A friend, yet brutally honest. A healing hand, then turning over tables. A preacher, a teacher, a speaker, yet who, like a lamb to the slaughter, was silent when pressed. A loyal son looking out for his mother in His death, yet previously, one who boldly proclaimed - "Who are my mother and brothers?" when the same doubted him. A man who called down religious leaders, then saved a prostitute from death. Who directly called sinners to righteousness, was condemned by the so called "righteous"  of his day, and was accused of being a glutton Himself. He was never quite what was expected of him, now was he?

And when you next try to nail us down, don't be surprised when it doesn't hold. You know what happened when they tried to nail Jesus down, don't you?

Jesus said to them, "Does this offend you? The Spirit gives life; the flesh counts for nothing. The words I have spoken to you - they are full of the Spirit and life. "           ~ John 6:61b, 63
