The First United Methodist Church is hosting the Don Moen Concert tonight at 7 p.m. at the Wellington High School Auditorium.What Moen does, and the answer might surprise you. He won’t say he’s a songwriter even though he’s written more than 100 songs. He won’t say he’s a worship leader even though he’s led worship on every continent but Antarctica and recorded numerous albums. He won’t say he’s a businessman or producer even though he has produced and directed hundreds of successful projects.If you ask Don Moen why God put him on this planet, he’ll tell you, “To be an architect who designs products and events that help people experience God’s presence in a new and fresh way.” And in more than three decades of ministry, he’s had lots of opportunity to fulfill that purpose.Don grew up in Minnesota before moving to Tulsa, Oklahoma, to attend Oral Roberts University. There, his musical gifts caught the eye of Terry Law, who asked Don to join his worship team, Living Sound, which ministered in communist countries throughout Eastern Europe and the former Soviet Union. For 10 years, Don was responsible for much of the group’s arrangements and musical productions, and saw first-hand the power of praise and worship to open closed doors and hearts, and lead enslaved people into the presence of God.In 1984, Integrity Music asked him to lead worship on one of the first Hosanna! Music albums, Give Thanks. The project became one of Integrity’s most popular recordings ever and a benchmark for the genre, achieving gold certification status and now nearing platinum certification.Don eventually joined the staff of Integrity, and served as President of Integrity Music and executive vice president/creative director for Integrity Media. In these roles, he spoke into the production of hundreds of products including all of the CDs and worship resources produced by Integrity Label Group. As an artist in his own right, Don has sold over five million units.His discography reflects his passion to create resources for the church that lead people into an honest and intimate relationship with the Lord. In 2002, his peers recognized that lifelong commitment and presented him with the Ray DeVries Church Ministry Award.last_img
