John & Dody Martin
Since 1974, John & Dody Martin have ministered to thousands of people, sharing a message of love straight from the heart, at hundreds of Churches, R.V. Resorts, and Christian Schools across the United States. John & Dody Martin are preparing 40th Anniversary Concerts during 2014, that will be a special time of celebration, featuring music that spans the decades from the very beginning in 1974 to the present day.
OUR MUSIC The Scriptures depict the use of a variety of different styles of worship music, both old and new. The apostle Paul writes, “Let the word of Christ richly dwell within you, with all wisdom teaching and admonishing one another with psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with thankfulness in your hearts to God” (Colossians 3:16). Musical tastes are as varied and unique as the individual and our desire is to reflect that diversity in our concerts.
Stylistically our concerts may include anything from Northern Gospel to Southern Gospel and traditional hymns to contemporary praise and worship. Our goal is to design the concert experience to minister to as many different people as possible with music that speaks to the heart and ministers to the soul. In so doing we hope to bring the worshiper into the presence of God.

Ministering the Word through Music
"To share the love of Christ, To encourage Christians in their walk, and To encourage people to reach out to serve the world's poor" …that is what it is all about for The John Martins. And this mission is lived out through their personsal and professional lives.
Based out of NY, this family has been touring the country since 1974 singing in churches, schools, conferences, R.V.Resorts, church camps and retreats nationally. They are impacting neighborhoods and nations with a message of hope and a motivation to serve others. So far, the Martins have found sponsors for over 7,500 needy children!
CHRISTIAN SCHOOLS! Let John & Dody Martin come and encourage your students and teachers in their Christian walk and create awareness of missions opportunities through child sponsorship. They will do chapel services for grades 1-12 and sing a variety of songs, including interactive songs, hymn arrangements, conservative contemporary and worship. During the service, John & Dody will present the ministry of Holt International and encourage students to share their faith and use the gifts and abilities God has given them to serve others, and they will encourage teachers, staff, and the student's parents to sponsor children from around the world. This ministry to your school is free of charge. Most schools provide a donation towards travel expenses, but this is not required. Contact Us Today!
