ServantSong serve our God with great joy, hope and love! As they share their gift of song, they help those gathered at our events to lift their prayers to the Lord of Life. Our diocese is thankful for their presence at our Catholic Youth Convention, Middle School Gathering, and Winter Jam, and are looking forward to having them join us to glorify God in the future.

You guys were great tonight [Jan 25, 2010] at Saint Roberts Bellarmine [confirmation class concert]. We had so much fun… you guys are awesome!
I knew I was in for a treat when I heard Servant Song was playing at St. Mark’s again this year. It is so hard to find a performance of traditional Christmas songs that are treated with such a deep spiritual edge to them. You bring a fresh approach to making sure Christ is the true reason for the season. I was able to enter into worship our Savior. Thanks for being so sensitive to the Lord when you serve Him in song.
Hi Dave… Just want to wish all of you a Happy and blessed ’10! Thanks again for the great Christmas concert you and the band so generously put on at St. Mark’s in December. The interaction with the kids made me smile and put me in the Christmas spirit. As usual, your music was prayerful, upbeat, beautiful, and rockin’!
ServantSong, you blessed us! Thank you so much for being part of Sonsplash 2009. The music was awesome. The heart of your group showed through and the name ServantSong is certainly appropriate. Thank you again, and we look forward to working with you again soon.

We were blessed to have ServantSong at our Day of Prayer and Reflection Family Retreat this week. Their presence and spirit made our family retreat an uplifting experience. While the turnout at event was low due to the holiday weekend, ServantSong never let that affect their performance. They played with such passion and professionalism. We are definitely looking forward to have them back for next year’s event! God bless and thanks to ServantSong.

I recently had the privilege of seeing Servant Song perform at a weekend long youth ministry convention. They were truly awesome! There music was spiritual, inspiring and fun! 550 teens and adults rocking out! Thanks so much!!!

What a wonderfully moving and uplifting night of inspiration! St. Mark loved having Servant Song share their music ministry with us last Saturday. Unfortunately, the weather kept some away, but those who were there loved every minute and we are already looking forward to a return performance in the summer! Thank you for sharing the blessing of your music with us.

We were pleased to have ServantSong visit our coffee house with their music ministry. It was a wonderful and Spirit-filled evening that we shared together! Everyone was singing, dancing, and joining together in praise & worship to Our Lord Jesus Christ. We pray that their ministry will continue to be blessed in all that they do.
House of Grace Community Coffee House
We were blessed to have ServantSong at our parish picnic this week. We were pelted by rain so our activities were moved indoors. Their presence and spirit made our inside picnic a huge success. I am sure people would have left quickly because of the weather. Their music, spirit and professional and friendly demeanor made our event grace filled. All want them back for another event! God bless and thanks to ServantSong.

I love the “Glory Be” CD – it’s fabulous! I’m actually going to buy another one so I can give it to my music director. My son and I listen to it every morning at breakfast. Thanks for creating such an inspiring CD – it really is a wonderful way to start my day and I find myself singing the songs throughout the day. A great way to keep my mind on God!

I saw ServantSong at the Upper Room in June. They are polished and professional. Lead singer Melissa Roberts has an energetic yet reverent presence — it’s obvious she’s having a ball up there. One of their newest original songs “Broken” was deeply moving. Definitely go see the band play live. It’ll be worth the effort to make it out to one of their events.

I recently attended a ServantSong concert at the Upper Room Christian coffeehouse in Warwick, RI, that I thoroughly enjoyed — both musically and inspirationally. It was the first time I had heard ServantSong — and in fact the first time I’d attended any Christian — music concert. The lead singer, Melissa, has a beautiful voice, and it seems obvious where she got her talent. Her mother, Donna, sang lead on a few songs and sounded great as well. I also enjoyed all the instrumental accompaniment. The whole night was very uplifting. I left feeling energized and more positive about the future.

We were recently blessed to have ServantSong as the music ministers for the Mass which opened our 41st Annual Diocesan Religious Education Workshop Day. ServantSong gifted us with their talent for music and their spirit of prayer. They did an excellent job of providing a bi-lingual (English and Spanish) worship experience. Their time and talent was appreciated by those present as was evidenced by the positive feedback we received from participants. We were pleased to have ServantSong with us and we would recommend them for any diocesan or parish gathering.

What an awesome evening we’ve had with ServantSong. Foot-stomping, hand-slapping, praise-the-Lord music. The combination of contemporary praise & worship and original music. All to glorify God. Please, tell the brothers and sisters. Spread the word. Dave and his band are blessed, and it’s all about Jesus, not about them. It shows in the music and enthusiasm they have in worship.
Power Station Christian coffeehouse
Originally, we had someone else that was going to come here. They canceled, and I had an email from Dave. I checked out ServantSong’s site, listened to the music, and thought it was very good. When they got in here and played, instead of being very good, it was great! The music is very uplifting, spiritual, and I recommend everyone buy the CD.
Good Fridays Christian coffeehouse
This band was a blessing to listen to tonight — definitely Spirit-led. I suggest that anybody that has a chance to see them, definitely do so. What a blessing it was to listen to them preach the Gospel through their music.

Based on over thirty years of experience in music, including studying music composition at the world renowned Berklee College of Music in Boston, I would make these comments regarding the music of ServantSong: In my professional opinion, I like what I hear from this group. Their music is fundamentally sound in the areas of harmonic structure, melodic phrasing, and overall form. I base this conclusion upon analysis of the written music. From am aesthetic, live performance experience, I find the group well-rehearsed, balanced, and energetic without being over-the-top. Finally, from a Christian perspective, there is no denying the prayerful content in their music. Their conviction of faith is very evident and genuine. For these reasons, I truly approve of ServantSong’s message through music and greatly support their future endeavors.

We recently had the Servant Song Ministry at our church, also known as The Rhode Island House of Prayer. One weekend each month we have a 48-hour praise and worship time with some of the best Christain artists from all over the country. When ServantSong’s two hour slot began, it was evident that they were going to rock the house for the lord. Their music was vibrant and their teen dance squad showed their love for our lord in a very special way. Their music literally helped to unite both protestants and Catholics in attendance to become what the lord wants of us — to be joyful and all be one in the body of Christ. Praise the Lord!!

THEY ROCK!!! That’s all that you need to know. If anyone says other wise may God smite them were they stand!
Over the years I have had the great opportunity to watch ServantSong grow in their ministry bringing Youth closer to God with music. I am truly grateful for their performances at our monthly prayer meetings (held on the last Tuesday of each month at All Saints Parish), our coffee houses, Praise/Worship Concerts and the “get ready for Steubenville East” activities. Not only do they play the rocking Steubenville music but they also perform several great songs written by Dave Gawron. ServantSong not only helps the youth grow in their faith but many adults have enjoyed their performances. I strongly suggest every Youth Minister consider booking ServantSong for their parish’s youth group to experience God in a different way. I thank God every day for introducing ServantSong to my ministry and I pray God continues to bless them with their great talents bringing all those who hear them closer to Him. Thank you again ServantSong for all you do for All Saints Parish!!!

Servant Song is great!! I love them…..
Hey all, ServantSong rocked at the coffeehouse last night (7/23/04), and we all had a great time dancing and signing (and singing, and singing) along! Great job, guys!! (Especially Jake, who lost a string on his bass guitar only a few songs in… I never would have known if it wasn’t announced!)
My first time hearing SevantSong it was… AWESOME!!!! I heard them play at the sanctify night on January 17th and lead it to be wonderful night. You could tell that the group was filled with the holy spirit, singing through prayer. I can’t wait until the next time!!!
Wow, how awesome was that!? I went to the January 17th (2004) performance of ServantSong and it was wonderful. The Spirit was definitely present in the church. The music was nothing short of amazing. I had such a wonderful time… if you weren’t able to make it last time, i suggest you clear your calendars for the next date.
And I am really excited about Sanctify! – A Night Praise & Worship at All Saints Catholic Church on Jan. 17th, because last night (Jan. 14th, 2004) I had the great opportunity to sit in on ServantSong’s rehearsal in our Parish Hall. Just let me tell you they ROCKED the place!! The night made me feel as if I was at Steubenville East. If this is your first year attending Steubie, this night will be a great taste of Saturday night’s adoration. If you have been to Steubie in the past, this night will be a great night to re-energize your self to start the fire… It sparked a fire in me last night — imagine what it can do for you. If you are not attending Steubie consider this a personal invitation to come spend an evening with Jesus. Also invite everyone you know to come to be in the presence of our Lord! The more people, the more the fire will grow and spread…. I hope to see all of you there…
I encourage Parishes and Youth Groups to book ServantSong. They are truly Spirit filled and have a great gift from God which will help youth to open their hearts which will bring them closer to our Lord.
