Peter Lewis Whitebird performs in concert

May 6, 2010 |

Join the House of Prayer Family Fellowship in Garden Valley at 7 p.m., Friday to welcome as guest musician Peter Lewis Whitebird. House of Prayer is located at 7901 Highway 193.

In 1998, the Christian country music world was introduced to the talents of recording artist Peter Lewis Whitebird, a Native American Chippewa from Topeka, Kan. He quickly established himself as one of the top Christian Country songwriting and singing artists with 16 top three radio hits and 11 No. 1 singles on the national charts.

Life has not exactly been a bed of roses for Whitebird. At a young age, his mother and father divorced and both would marry two more times. Like his dad, he too struggled with addiction to alcohol after a divorce of his own.

Whitebird never truly experienced a real father-son relationship with any of his earthly dads, but God became his Òeternal dadÓ when he gave his life to Christ in 1973 while on a deer hunting trip.

Years later, Whitebird was able to lead his dad to true faith in Jesus just three short years before he died of cancer in 1995.

ÒEveryone you know gets up every day trying to find completeness in life,Ó said Whitebird. ÒI found that completeness in the person of Jesus Christ.Ó

He was ordained in 1995 while pasturing a church in Topeka from June 1994 until August of 1999. It was then that he and his wife Judy began touring full-time with his music and evangelism ministry. He has recorded five albums in Nashville and a sixth that is a live concert on DVD recorded in California.

Recognized nationally by his peers, Whitebird has been nominated for and won several awards for his singing and songwriting talents. He also has appeared as a guest of Pat Boone on TBN with other guests that included Stephen Baldwin and Dean Jones. He also has appeared on other television shows.

ÒWhitebird is an artist whose main interest is ministry through the medium of Country music,Ó said Ken James, director of evangelism and discipleship training, Kansas/Nebraska Convention of Southern Baptists. ÒHis personal testimony, coupled with his firm grasp of Biblical truths, all combine for a presentation that stirs the hearts of believers, and speaks to non-believers with simplicity and drawing power.Ó

Whitebird takes his cross-denominational, God-ordained music and preaching ministry to churches, rodeos, prisons, drug and alcohol rehab programs, fairs and festivals all across America each year, through his Arkansas hillbilly cousin character, Bubba Burks.
