What’s Going On With DJ?

If your life has been in someway affected by something the Lord has done through my life message or ministry, would you consider helping me get the good news of freedom and hope out to countless others? At times I become a bit fearful when I look at the world and how much it hates what we stand for. Daily I face some sort of opposition to my story. You would think people would be happy for me, but reality is many people are angry that I am free! Still, my goal is to convey the Truth in love. At this stage of the journey, God has not given me any indication other than to keep telling my story and letting Him worry about the hearts of those who fiercely oppose it.

Why do I share this? I honestly need your help. Before my story is made illegal to share (and that is next on the enemy’s agenda, mark my word) I want to get it out to as many as possible...but I am an independent artist, meaning I have no label to financially help me produce new recordings nor do I have a mega-church supporting what I am called to do. I am a simple pastor to several families in my home who takes what God does there and passes it on to the world. I would humbly ask for your help in the following projects.

New Recording

I and my producer, Ryan Redding, are working on a brand new recording I am calling DAYS OF AWE. My goal is to have it mixed and ready to go by October! When I began asking the Lord what songs needed to be on this recording one word kept echoing through my mind: EPIC. You’ll understand when you hear it. God is epic in nature...and I wanted the songs to reflect that epic-ness in every way possible. The music is being produced with an epic feel and orchestration. Why should Hollywood have all the epic music? Even with the most intimate songs on the recording we have tried to capture an epic-ness of intimacy!

If you know me, you know my heart for intimacy with God and how I long for others to know that same intimacy. People may see me as a worship leader, or singer, or song receiver, but I see myself as a minister commissioned to tell my story in order for others trapped in bondage to know there is a way out. Almost daily I encounter people who ask for help in finding freedom. I will continue to do that very thing. Would you help me in that endeavor?

Since I am an independent artist - no label backing - I would humbly ask for your help in finishing this project. We need $20,000 to fully fund the recording and mixing process.

Malaysia, Singapore, and Australia Ministry Trip

Melinda and I have been invited to come to Malaysia and minister in several churches this October and November. The churches we will be dealing with long for the message of freedom and for the worship music but cannot afford to fly me there. While in the region, we will also go to Singapore and minister for 4 days and from there we will end our trip in Australia ministering in a few churches and seeing our daughter, Hannah, and her husband Ashley. The flights from Singapore to Australia and from Australia to America are covered. We need help for the Malaysia segment for flights there, accommodations, and meals for two weeks so as to be as little a burden on the body of Christ there as possible.

To cover as many expenses as possible I am asking you to help me raise $10,000 for the Malaysia trip by September 15th.

To complete the recording and to fund the ministry trip to the South Pacific, we will need a total of $30,000 by September 15th.

Update on SING OVER ME - the Dennis Jernigan Story - Movie and Book

So many of you gave toward the documentary of my life. Every single penny of that $40,000 raised has gone directly into the production of that film. I just watched the first rough cut...and could not stop crying as I watched the most sweet telling of my story at the hands of Jacob and Ashlyn Kindberg, director and producer respectively. I cannot wait for the world to see it! It is my belief that millions - yes, millions - of people will be affected by this project. In addition, several weeks ago I completed the work on my autobiography, SING OVER ME - the Dennis Jernigan Story. I will be presenting it to a publisher sometime during the next two weeks.

Please pray for favor with those who could give the film distribution in theaters and elsewhere. And follow the making of the film along with other updates at
