We are the Derksen Family. Our home page is: We love to play music and sing wherever we are called to.

We love God, music and each other. Our desire is to share the life changing blessing of loving and obeying Jesus.

Ministry History

Sharing music with others all began in our local church. From there we were invited to bring programs at our local nursing homes, senior’s center and other community special occasions. Visitors who heard us invited us to their area and soon we were travelling in an ever expanding circle around our home to bless others with the music that God has given us.

We sing and play a variety of music from a Christian perspective including hymns, gospel, classical, and more.

Each child chose an instrument at age 6 and many decided to add more instruments along the way! Our instruments include piano, harp, violins, viola, cello, guitar, mandolin, banjo, flute, trumpets, trombone, french horn, and tuba. In the same program there may be a brass quintet, a string quartet, gospel songs, and lots of family harmony.

In 2004 we moved out of town into the country. During the next couple of years we planted a 1600 tree cherry and apple orchard, little knowing what we were getting ourselves into.

We also grow many different types of vegetables, selling some to stores, on farm sales, and of course, we use a lot ourselves. All of our food is grown as naturally as possible and the cherries and apples are organic.
