“I found Jesus on April 14, 2016 at Algoa Correctional and was baptized on July 20, 2016. Upon release from prison, the bad people I used to hang around showed up. I kept quoting resist the devil and he will flee from you and after a few weeks those people disappeared and my ministry took off full blast, I am now actually involved in a church. I thank God that He saved me, seven years of incarceration, seven different times…I faced death many times, but Jesus Christ set me free and today I praise Him, praise Him, Hallelujah! I pray that everyone that walks out of prison will walk out of there with the armor of God and carry their Bible, their sword and know that Jesus Christ is beside them. Thank you James, Johnny, and Christy.” – Offender L.

“Sing for the King’s Christy Hoagland, played for our Mission Fellowship Conference group. I enjoyed it very much so I a bought a CD. Today after school I played it while helping my daughter clean her room. She has been dancing and trying to sing along. She loves it. I might need another one…she might not share. Lol. I do a Monday night jail ministry in my small town and when I told her this lady does jail ministry with music. She decided she wants to do that when she grows up.” – Jail Missionary
“Wonderful ministry and great witness for the Lord!” – Sing for the King Supporter
“Sing for the King Ministries recently began leading our 3rd Sunday evening CG main worship service, and have immediately become our most popular worship leaders/preachers. They are really easy to work with…they have servant hearts…and their worship leadership and preaching is phenomenal! Christy Hoagland is a fabulous worship leader and soloist! James is a great preacher and Johnny Allen identifies with the offenders in a very real way!! If you want your offenders to meet with Jesus, I recommend that you invite Sing for the King Ministries to conduct a worship service or concert!” – Chaplain, JCCC (February 2017, sent to other MO DOC Chaplains)
