I have known Gene for 7 years, as our relationship developed over the years, it is obvious that Gene has a real passion and deep commitment to Jesus Christ. He has faithfully ministered to the body of Christ, not only in America, but in other parts of the world, especially Romania.
Gene has served the suffering body of Christ by supplying humanitarian aide and relief supplies to those who the Lord Jesus talks about in Mathew 25. Because of his tireless efforts with the persecuted and suffering saints, he has first hand experience to draw from.
Genes has an incredible gift of music to offer the body of Christ, and every song he sings, reflects biblical truth and the realities of what it truly means to take up your
cross and follow Jesus. Gene has an uncanny way of using his music to
disciple the body of Christ, I highly recommend him as a man of God, and as
a prophetic voice for this generation.
