Bruce & Lynne Patterson
Messianic Praise and Worship Ministry
Many Bible prophecies speak of the return of the Jewish people from all nations to their native land of Israel, and of their return to the Messiah of Israel, Jesus, or in Hebrew, 'Yeshua.' Today and in recent years, many Jewish people are discovering and believing that Yeshua haMashiach (Jesus, the Messiah) has, indeed, already come; while more and more Christians are experiencing an increasing desire to learn about the Jewish roots of their faith.
Believing that The Holy Spirit is bringing restoration to the Christian community by awakening in Christian hearts this timely reality, Bruce and Lynne Patterson bring to life the Hebraic roots of the Christian faith, while 'forth telling' in their scripture based songs, Old Testament Prophecies as well as New Testament prophecies which are coming to pass before our very eyes!
Romans 1:16 says that the Gospel is to be preached, "to the Jew first and then to all the nations." God has called Bruce and Lynne, through their musical expression, to proclaim the good news of all those who are "grafted into the olive tree" (Romans 11). Truly, both Jew and Gentile become "one new man/one new creation" by believing in the saving knowledge of Yeshua haMashiach.
Come and explore the richness of our Hebrew heritage through the Messianic praise and worship music ministry of Bruce and Lynne Patterson. Traveling aboard this ancient tapestry of their contemporary sounds, for nearly two decades Bruce and Lynne's original music has inspired a deeper understanding and appreciation for God's infallible Word, and The Land of Israel.

Should America Support Israel?
In Bruce's compelling talk, he reveals scripturally why America should support Israel. The Bible says, referring to Israel in Genesis 12:3, "I will bless those who bless you and him who dishonors you I will curse." Bruce further expounds on this scripture by explaining how God judges nations according to how they deal with Israel and the Jewish people; discusses the promises God made to Abraham (father of the Jewish people), and that His promises are still in effect today. Bruce and Lynne perform original songs.
Should the Church Support Israel?
In his scripturally based talk Bruce encourages Christians to understand the church has a biblical mandate to support Israel. John 4: 22, "Salvation is of the Jews" reminds us God chose to become a Jewish man and come to earth to save all who would receive Him - both Jew and Gentile. Bruce cites the Book of Ruth 1:16 "your people shall be my people." The Apostle Paul, speaking of the Jews says, "For if the Gentles have come to share in their spiritual blessings, they ought also to be of service to them in material blessings" (Romans 15:27). Psalmists Bruce and Lynne perform original songs.
Who Is the One New Man and

Bruce explains how Jesus and Paul give us the keys to spiritual growth for the church and world revival found in the message of the One New Man - Jew and Gentile, one in Messiah (John 17 and the Book of Ephesians). Bruce and Lynne perform original songs during this presentation.
Jesus and The Ancient Hebrew Wedding Customs
Like turning the pages of a wedding album, this presentation provides insight into the spiritual significance of the ancient Hebrew wedding customs and how Jesus fulfills each one. From the proposal with a cup of wine, to the washing Mikavah, to the Bridal chamber and beyond, such rich imagery paints a vivid portrait of how each detail of the wedding is meticulously prepared by the bride, bridegroom, and their families. This vibrant symbolism comes to life as Jesus proposes to you, His desired Bride! Bruce and Lynne minister original music composed on Bruce's classical guitar during this presentation.
