March 6th Benefit Concert with Phil Keaggy, Audrey Assad, Buddy Greene, Jeff Taylor and Ashley Bayne!
What a great event! Artistry Fight Poverty: Instruments of Joy Benefit Concert Recap
Instruments of Joy hosted a benefit concert, raising funds and awareness to serve musicians in need. Not only did we experience the excellent musicianship of Phil Keaggy, Audrey Assad, and Buddy Greene, but our supporters showed up in a big way! Thanks to the 350 guests in attendance, the concert and silent auction collectively raised more than $23,000! These funds will go such a long way in helping Instruments of Joy fulfill our mission of providing quality musical instruments to musicians in need.
Toward the end of the concert, our founder Joshua MacLeod shared a passage from Matthew 14. He expressed Jesus’s compassion for the multitudes and the importance of seeking God for how each of us can help, using the resources we already have. MacLeod then left the concert-goers with three major take-aways:
- Will you join with Christ in compassion for the multitudes?
- What would you do if Jesus instructed you, “…You give them something to eat!”?
- Are you willing to use the tools and gifts you already have to serve?
