Churches everywhere are enjoying the smooth sounds and melodic mastery shared on Gospelmusicians.com. The tag line is: "Making musicians into ministers" so it comes as no surprise that Hartwell would have words directly aimed at young musicians in today's church. The approximately 33 minute video on Hartwell's YouTube channel explores a few issues plaguing today's young musicians. Hartwell closes the video with a word to Pastors and leaders encouraging them to keep their musicians accountable.
More and more musicians of all ages are turning to Hartwell, whose dynamic teaching style fast tracks even new learners through today's top gospel hits.
Admittedly, some of what Hartwell has to say in this video is and sounds harsh, but he speaks to this younger generation who are without a mentor in love hoping to set the straight. Most importantly, the video will set ministry parameters for musicians of all ages who seek to minister in church.
Some of the reference is to urban musicians, but the overall message is global and applicable wherever this crisis exists.
