Dan Schall in Concert

Oct. 2, 7 p.m., Community Church of Pepperell

Followed by a coffee hour in the Vestry

Dan’s ministry started when he was in his teens, after accepting what Jesus Christ had done for him. He endured a severe speech impediment during his teen years. The anger and frustration controlled his life. It all was released one night by realizing that Jesus Christ died for all his trials and pain. He continues to stutter but God has blessed him with a singing voice that he has used for years for the Glory of God.

Dan’s music ministry enables him to share how God has touched his life. The music reaches out to others in a special way to show them the love that Jesus Christ has for them.

For many years and thousands of miles Dan has sung almost every weekend. In 2001, he resigned from his full-time job of 29 years and went into ministry full time. Dan and his wife travel around the country in their motor home performing his concerts for FREE. A “Donation Basket” is provided to take up a collection to help them to defray the costs. Much of his time is spent being with the ones who are hurting because of situations in their lives. In a hurting world, God uses a simple song and a listening ear.

His CDs will be available at the concert or go to www.DanSchall.org.

You can explore more of “Dan Schall Ministries” at the website above. On the site you are able to hear some of Dan’s music and read his testimony. A listing of Dan’s recordings can be ordered at the site or through the mail.

Each week there is a web cast where Dan shares music and thoughts. The web cast has a format similar to his concerts.
