At Christmas time I love to be like Mary and treasure the things that God has done and is doing in my heart. Luke 2:19 “But Mary kept all these things like a secret treasure in her heart. She thought about them over and over.” Looking back on 2019 fills my heart with thanks and wonder for all God has done this year and is already at work on for 2020 for Yancy Ministries.
Thank you for pushing play and letting me be a part of your days through my music and ministry. I am oh so grateful for you.
Merry Christmas and Happy 2020!
Yancy Ministries 2019 Year End Recap and Update:
- Hundreds of churches used our Heartbeat curriculum
teaching the heart of worship. The feedback and testimonies we have received are everything and more than we prayed for. It is truly a joy to help disciple kids in the area of worship. Churches used it on Sundays and midweek, VBS, summer events, discipleship programs and even in student ministry. To God be the glory. Learn more about this curriculum at YancyMinistries.com/Heartbeat
- This year provided more open doors than ever to teach and help shine a light on the topic of kids and worship. Yancy was featured on a list of podcasts this year bringing some mic drop moments to this topic. Here’s links to a few of those:

- We released a new worship single, Nothing Else. Yancy put her spin on this special song by Cody Carnes. Yancy shares: “It is a song that I needed and I know the Church needs. This is the kind of song I want to lead others in through worship and I knew I had to help connect more people to this song.” The lyric video is available at WorshipHouseKids.com for your church, camp or school.
- We did a new thing this year by creating a few countdowns to our songs. This is a resource that can be used to help teach new worship songs or just to have an exciting, high energy way to countdown to your service or program beginning. We have three countdowns available: Super Wonderful. Strength & Shield and O Come, O Come Emmanuel at WorshipHouseK
- Yancy performed concerts at churches from coast to coast all across the U.S.A. Leading kids in worship at VBS and camps and performing family, preschool and Christmas concerts. Live events are a blast. It’s a honor to help churches create special events that become lasting memories for families. See a video of what happens on the road at YancyMinistries.com/Events
- Christmas music is one of our favorite things to create This fall we released two new Christmas songs: O Come, O Come Emmanuel and Not About the Weather. We now have eighteen Christmas songs available. Check out our playlist for the season here: Yancy’s Super Wonderful Christmas Wonderland Playlist https://play.
