The live orchestra is always a highlight of the annual Christmas Celebrations!

One of my earliest memories playing music is of my dad and I in our basement. Dad on his baby blue Fender electric and me attempting to play my black Pearl Export kit (which I could barely see over), after I had finally graduated from pots and pans. This was a reoccurring scene in my household and it was this intentional time and space that sparked a love and passion for music that would consume my thoughts, my time and my dreams.
As I grew older I discovered that this passion for music went beyond simply the ability to play songs or sing the right notes. It connected; it had impact. Music stirs the heart in a way that few things do and I have come to realize that, more than any fame or success, it is my desire to use it to speak life into those around me. In the same way that my dad was willing to be intentional with me, I want to be intentional with each song, fan and opportunity.
After the whirlwind subsided, Jordan felt called to step back from music, into full time ministry as a youth pastor, at the Westside Community Church in Morden, MB. As this was happening, he and James Shiels, who had recently started as a summer camp director at Winkler Bible Camp, began connecting with the purpose of accountability and encouraging one another. What resulted was a deeper understanding of who God is and what it looks like to really live a life that is reflective of Him…and a bunch of songs that connected with the daily questions and struggles of that very journey. This led to forming the popular Christian band, “The Color”. They released their debut self-titled album in 2012 after forming around the magnetic voice of lead vocalist, Jordan Janzen. For Jordan, The Color was a resurgence of the dream of full-time music, sparked a second time after taking a step back from a solo career that began in high school and included a successful stint on Canadian Idol in 2008.
