WESTMINSTER, Calif. — Musical pioneers who were at the forefront of the Jesus People Movement in the 1960s and '70s performed a half-day long reunion concert held at Calvary Chapel Pacific Coast earlier this month. While some may have hoped for a revival in a more public sense, the event transformed into an intimate look at a family of virtuosos who love Jesus, each other, and their ministries.
Legendary rock and blues vocalist and harmonica player, Darrell Mansfield, told this reporter before the Jesus People Reunion concert began that perhaps this is what God wanted all along. Jesus might not be so much interested in a revival on some grandiose scale, but on a personal level with each of us, individually.
"To me this is a high school reunion and Jesus," Mansfield explained. "I spent so many years touring with these men and women of God that serve the Lord. I have a lot of great memories — globe trotted over the whole world. To be here is a blessing." more >>
