John Schlitt - Living It Loud


John Schlitt Ministries encourages other to share the love of Jesus Christ by using their own gifts in service to others in their communities and around the globe. In order to use ones gifts, you first have to know what they are and how to use them. The discovery of John's gifts was a journey. He has documented that journey in a book called, simply, WHY. You can preview the book and purchase it by clicking the Shop button above.

Additionally, John Schlitt Ministries spotlights other ministries that we hope can benefit from sharing their vision and needs.  In this way, your support of John Schlitt Ministries multiplies the impact of your donation by helping us spread the word about the work of these worthy organizations.


On Live It Loud, John interviews the people who popularized contemporary christian music, particularly Christian Rock, during the 60's, 70's, 80's, 90's and early 2000's. These are the musicians and songwriters who influenced generations to come to know Jesus Christ.


On Live It Loud, you learn how God called these artists and what music influenced their particular style. The stories are fascinating, moving and sometimes hilarious. Listeners hear John Schlitt and many of their favorite early Christian artists including Phil Keaggy, Rick Cua, Eddie DeGarmo, Geoff Moore and, of course, the guys from Petra. You can hear John's complete interviews with his Live It Loud guests by clicking on the Interviews tab above or the button below to.

Former Petra member Pete and his wife Kelli now operate a ministry in Denison, Texas called In Triumph. The program is for young men who have aged out of the foster care system but do not yet have the live skills necessary to succeed on their own. Some of these guys have had issues with drug abuse or have been victims of severe abuse. Pete uses an intensive study of the Word of God to transform their lives. His success rate in excellent, but the cost for such a personalized and intensive program is high. Dorla and I financially support Pete and Kelli, and I encourage you to check out In Triumph and support them as well. There is a short video of my recent visit to In Triumph and a link to their website below.
