It's hard to believe that fall of 2020 is here already! What a year!! God has been so good to The Finneys. We started off the year with lots of concerts scheduled, and then in March Covid-19 hit and everything changed. I believe that God is the master plan-maker, and all that has happened or will happen is according to His divine plan. I see Him at work, even in these hard times! I know personally I have paused to reflect on my walk with Christ, my motives for what I do, and most importantly, where my heart lies. This era in which we now live has changed me, but for the better. The Bible says in Romans 8:28,
"And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose."
I believe that God is calling America to repentance, mainly for straying from Him, and therefore from His precepts as shown in His Word. But rejoice!He promises, "if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land". Pray for our country, that God will send revival in America. Pray for our government, that God will put an endd to all the corruption and hatred amongst our politicians. Pray for our president, whether you like him or not, he is the man that God has allowed to be in that position in order to carry out His will. Hang in there, with God running things, it will work out for the better!
Our new CD has been a slow process, it seems that there is always something more pressing for me to work on. Now with things the way they are, funds are just not there for us to spend on the production. God will provide as God sees fit, so we will rely on Him to work through this too. If He wants us to complete the CD, then He will make a way!!
With Covid-19 putting a damper on singing live concerts, we have been doing FaceBook Live concerts every Friday night from 7pm - 8:30ish. People are telling us that these concerts are the highlight of their week, because of the Gospel message in song that touches their very souls. Tune in if you can, you can find the concerts on our FaceBook page, located at facebook.com/thefinneys.
We want to thank all of our fans who have been faithfully coming out and supporting us, and for praying for us along the way. We love you all, and we pray for you too!
Many people have asked us how they could donate to our ministry. I have always had a hard time with the "business" aspect of ministry. After all, what drives us is our desire to use what God has given us to help others to come to know Christ, and encourage those who already have a saving knowledge of Jesus. The truth is, God has provided for us financially through our music ministry all along the way. Our view of ministry is to put as much of it back into the ministry as we can afford. Good sounding and dependable music equipment, transportation, and producing new music is tops on our list of priorities. With Covid-19 the "new norm", our ministry has changed drastically. Determined to continue to spread the Good News, we have gone to Live Streaming on FaceBook every Friday night at 7pm. Needless to say, without offerings and a donation table in the back of the church, funding has dropped considerably. Now we are purchhasing video cameras, switchers, lighting, etc., and still trying to fund our next CD project.
So, below is a link to contribute to The Finneys Gospel music. You can use a credit card, or if you have a PayPal account you can use that method. If you want to have a Finneys CD, go to Our Music link on this site. We offer our CDs free to those who contribute to The Finneys Gospel Music Ministry. There you will be able to sample our songs and click on the link to donate there as well as below.
COME ON IN!
Thank you for visiting our site, we are glad that you dropped in.
A Short Bio...
Who are The FINNEYS? Based in Richmond Virginia, John and Frankie began singing together before they were married in 1987. It is obvious that the Lord had a plan when he played matchmaker for this couple, the most common compliment that they receive is how well their voices blend together. Then of course, it just makes sense, right? Frankie and Johnny??
The FINNEYS have traveled thousands of miles over the last few decades, up and down the east coast, with a burning passion for encouraging others through their music and testimony.
The Finneys first CD project, On The Right Track which was released in March 2012 got things rolling for The Finneys. Then, in 2013 two more projects were completed - You Asked For It and Christmas With The Finneys. And, Lord willing, they're not done yet!
