    THE MUSICIAN

    David Benoit, (born May 9, 1953) is an American jazz fusion / contemporary jazz pianist, composer and producer, who is from Los Angeles, California. He has been nominated for five Grammy Awards.

    His debut album Freedom at Midnight was his biggest seller and most popular album. Benoit also says that it was his favorite album to produce, because it was when "everything came together," as he stated in an interview on smoothviews.com.

    Out of respect for one of his main influencers, Bill Evans, he dedicated his 1992 album Letter to Evan to him.

    Many of his songs employed a string section, most notably on his American Landscape and Orchestral Stories albums in 1997 and 2005, respectively. He has said that it is his dream to release a symphonic album.

    In 2000, after the death of Peanuts creator Charles M. Schulz, he released a memorial album entitled Here's To You, Charlie Brown: 50 Great Years. Collaborators included the chorus group Take 6, guitarist Mark Antoine and trumpeter Chris Botti. He also did the music for "Peanuts" in the later specials.

    THE WRITER

    David Benoit (Ben-wah’) was born march 14, 1955, and grew up in Louisiana. He accepted Christ as Savior in 1972 after a rebellious teenage life had led him to reform school. In 1973, he enrolled in Liberty Baptist College, graduating in 1978 with a B.S. Degree in Church Ministries, minoring in speech and theology.

    Following college, David entered the ministry as a youth pastor on the West coast, serving in California and Oregon. He was also affiliated with Word of Life of Schroon Lake, New York, as a club director.

    In June of 1984, David was led of the Lord to establish Glory Ministries as an evangelist. When David began, the emphasis of Glory Ministries was to expose the truth of the damaging effects of rock music on society. The only solution being regeneration by Jesus Christ.

    In the past several years, David has used his vast knowledge of the occult and the New Age movement to show how Satan is subtly gaining entrance into our families and our churches through seemingly harmless children’s toys, movies and cartoons. He has authored four books on this subject. (Available at the Bookstore)

    David has appeared on hundreds of local radio and television talk shows across the country. The most notable include; The Inspirational Network, Family Broadcasting Network, Trinity Broadcasting Network, Moody Broadcasting Network, KGO radio (San Francisco), WGST radio (Atlanta), WWWE radio (Cleveland), Point of View (Dallas, TX), Dr. D. James Kennedy’s nationally televised program and Bob Larson Live (Denver, CO). He has also been a guest host for the Southwest Radio Church program, heard daily nationwide.

    David has the rare ability to communicate his message to young people, as well as to parents, using humor and interesting facts. His goal is to strengthen the family and to give them the Biblical tools they need to live in these troubled times. David’s ministry is to assist the local Bible-believing churches in America and oversees in evangelism, outreach and subsequent church growth.
