Order Form for Mike Messer CDs

My name is Mike Messer, and I used to play guitar for a band called Wilson McKinley. We were just another rock and roll group back in the late 60s, with a good reputation as a concert and dance band. We had released our own single and were gaining attention from several record companies.

We were not all that happy, and I had a yearning to play for Christís Kingdom, so in June of 1970 three of the four of us surrendered our lives to Jesus. We went full time in His service. The rest is history, best written by someone else. We received something we didnít care if we had, and that was notoriety. God used it for His glory, and Iím satisfied with that.

After the band ended its 10-year ministry, we all went our separate ways. I became involved in and helped start numerous home fellowships and several churches.

I will say right up front that I am a non-traditional, non-denominational free spirit who revels in anything the Holy Spirit is doing. I donít seek to please men, but the Father. Over the last 20 years I have had the privilege of ministering and teaching Christ to people from all walks of life, and I love that! I will always try to relate to people where they are at, and I have released a CD that I hope does that. Itís not all I have to say or share, but itís something I wanted to do. I have many more songs to put out there, and I hope with Godís help to get them heard. "He who has an ear, let him hear." Mike Messer, February, 2000

Comments from Timothy Smith, Tanignak Productions:

What Mike didnít tell you is that he has battled back from serious surgery that left him partially paralyzed for a time. The album he mentioned is his first venture back into music after that ordeal, and he has done a fantastic job of it. All the songs on the CD are original Messer compositions, and he recorded all the tracks at his home studio in Lake Havasu City, Arizona. Throughout all his trials, Mike has kept a servant's heart, one that longs to see people come to know his Lord and walk closer to Him. The album is full of biblical references, yet in a format that makes it understandable to the seeker and never preachy. The music cuts across genres and generations, and shows the versatility and competence of a musician of over thirty years' experience.

The sound samples below include several excerpts from Mike's new album, as well as some of Mike's classic work with the Wilson McKinley. As an added bonus, Mike has graciously let us preview a few "cuts in progress" from his upcoming second release.
