We want to do more house concerts and would love to offer you an opportunity to book us to come to your home to do a concert for your friends and family during 2014!
What is a House Concert?
A private, low-key event in the homes of music fans. Usually set in a living room, the space does not have to be large or fancy, any living room will do. Friends, neighbours, family, and acquaintances are typically invited to attend by the host. Often there is a pot-luck or snacks to be enjoyed before the concert or in-between two sets. It is perfect for ‘Small Group’ ministry.
How much will it cost me to host?
Nothing! We don’t charge a fee.
To keep our full-time music ministry going we take up a love offering and sell our CDs.
How many people do I need to invite?
We have had successful House Concerts with as few as 10 people! The usual amount of attendees is between 10-30 people.
Do I create the advertisements?
No. We will send you a poster, social media images and information to share with your friends and family.
“Having Monique & Eric perform at our house was a low-key, casual but intimate affair. We sat in comfortable armchairs, dining on snacks and cups of tea while listening to a presentation of inspiring music and stories from the lives of these two artists. Driven by their desire to share God and how he has provided and worked in their lives through song and music was truly an inspiration. Thanks for a wonderful evening!” – Sarah, New Zealand
“Eric & Monique’s house concert in Coffs Harbour helped our congregation get closer to the throne room of God and be inspired to continue praise God for who He is. We would have Eric and Monique back any time.” – Abel Iorgulescu, Assistant Pastor, Coffs Harbour, Australia

I quite like cliffs (At the disgust of Eric).
Disclaimer: There is a hidden ledge under my feet in the above picture at Yosemite National Park. Eric was in the background freaking out…
There’s just something about standing at the top of a sheer cliff, hundreds of meters above the valley below. The exhilaration. The freedom. The ironic peace. The tiny bit of fear that sneaks out. The feeling of feeling oh so small and realising just how big God is.
Sometimes in life God leads us to a symbolic cliff or as Martin Luther King Jr explains it:
“Faith is taking the first step even when you can’t see the whole staircase.”
I have never felt so many conflicting emotions as I have since we have gone into music ministry full-time at the beginning of 2013.
Peace. A peace that comes straight from God. That He is looking out for us and that we are doing His will.
Fear. That snakes ups within and chokes my throat with societal expectations of a stable fortnightly wage, mortgage, superannuation and the list goes on of things that I don’t have.
Joy. One that comes while sharing the message of hope, love and grace found in the gospel of Jesus Christ through singing music that touched my heart from the moment it was written.
Worry. A worry of whether we are doing God’s will.
Desire. Beyond anything wanting to do God’s will in our lives.
Happiness. Loving spending so much extra time with my best friend and husband while ministering, singing and working together.
Surrealism. From all the testimonies that we have heard of how God has used the music He has given to us in the lives of others.
What does all this mean? We are on a journey.
A journey that is continually exercising that muscle of faith.
A journey to follow God where ever He leads.
A journey to continually be the instrument in God’s hands.
Please pray for us as we continue to step out in faith.
SupportWe value your prayers and support. Your financial gift to our full-time music ministry will assist the mission to spread the gospel through word & song. Thank you for your generosity.
Honour the Lord with all you have to offer. Even the small is enough to bring honour. // Honour The Lord
