Alan Root is a kid musicianary. He rocks with older kids. He says you''ll like him if you''re sick of Barney and scared of Britney. His ministry sticks like duct tape to young brains. He was called to ministry by a seemingly harmless comment made to him by Michael W. Smith. His music is a cross between James Taylor and Smash Mouth. He''s been an artist for Word and Starsong. He''s done music for Kelloggs, McDonalds, Oscar Meyer, Sesame Place, Dr. Seuss and Dr. Billy Graham. Recorded 8 CDs. 2001, 2003, 2004 Tele award winner. Taught college-level Geology. Honesty. Humor. Substance. Ministry. Joy. He''s different. But not weird. You''ll like him.
RALPH MEAKER “There aren’t many people who can do the music and bring the word to older kids like you can. Your gifts are unique.” JULIE KURZ “Each days talks were direct, foundational, understandable - probably the best talks I’ve heard for children. We had 30 decisions!” KATHY PUGH “You are, indeed, the ‘real thing.’ I haven’t seen that many kids respond to the gospel. This is the BEST I have ever seen.” JIM DRAKE “42 people made a decision for a new life. WOW!!”
KAREN LUTTRELL “My kids came home excited, and my son is not excitable.” DENISE SHELTON “My daughter says you’ve replaced the Backstreet Boys.” MANDI CARR “I was able to see you with the older kids. You were great. They were having a blast. You have a great gift.” MICHAEL MILOSER “We don''t know how we’ll top this year’s VBS.” RUTH PAPE “I played your new video for my 4th and 5th graders and from the moment I pressed play, I had their attention.” MARY CLAIRE WESOLOSKY “I am 8 years old. I love your music. Your songs inspire me to love the Lord even more than ever.” PAM REA “Thanks for clearly teaching our kids about Jesus. They are having so much fun and 15 out of 17 of my class have made serious commitments to Jesus.” BENJAMIN MANLEY “I was laughing so hard I could hardly take notes! You explained complex concepts so that even the youngest can understand.” STEVE DAVIS “Your ministry is so right-on theologically and musically.” GWEN COOPER “A parent told me, “As far as I’m concerned, you can book Alan every year. Anyone who can hold my 5 year old’s attention for an hour and a half...”” MARGARET PITTMAN “Universally given a "10,” “A+,” "four stars," by EVERYONE who met you. You’ve left quite a mark on our congregation.” Ashlee Graham “I went 2 the Fun In The Son camp @ Ridgecrest. I really enjoyed it. I loved your message, I have wondered before about creation and it just made it so clear that there is just no way that evolution could b true. The chicken soup song also broke it down 2 make it easy 2 understand.” Dan Classen “My daughter Leah fell in love with FORTUNATE RECIPIENT, has memorized all the words to each song and goes around singing Alan Root music all day long. She is 7 and very bright and also loves my collection of Dylan and Bruce Cockburn, soooo... I think you are in with the biggies now.” Nicki Kumfer “’Alan Root rocks over Sponge Bob any day!!!’ I would agree! Dear Alan, I am going over the questionnaires and hands down your workshops got the highest ratings!!! The above was a quote directly off of one of the questionnaires. Thanks again for an AWESOME time!!” TRACY ADCOCK, Creswell Elementary public school “I have had more teachers compliment this program than any other. One assistant said she had been here for nine years and had never seen any thing that compared to it. Another kept discussing how well you interacted with the children.”
WHAT MAKES ALAN SO UNIQUE? He connects with OLDER KIDS, your tweens! God called him to do music for kids, not kid’s music. He calls his music style pop/rock: “Rock from someone old enough to be your pop.” Think Smash Mouth meets James Taylor. And songs are just one way he reaches the kids hearts. Biblical teaching, humor, and wacky stories stick to kid’s brains like duct tape and give them the fundamentals of a Biblical faith in Jesus.
