Ever thought of hosting your own Keith Kitchen concert? It’s a lot easier than you think.
Keith’s show was relaxing, inspirational, and fun. Keith is more than a skilled musician who can sing, he plays from his heart and sings with passion and purpose. It’s obvious he’s having fun and yet at the same time you sense something deeper happening. From start to finish it was a great experience!
– Aaron Gerrard, Youth Pastor, Surrey BC
Why should I host?
Rather than coming in and singing the same worship songs your church is singing already, Keith brings a mix of thought-provoking original songs and clear testimony of Christ’s work in his life with the goal of strengthening and edifying the church. More than just a gifted singer/songwriter, Keith is deep, witty, and fun to be around. One pastor remarked, “There’s so much theology in Keith’s songs, I feel like we heard 4 sermons tonight.” (Joel DeMoor, Trinity Christian Reformed Church, Abbotsford, BC). Another concert goer recently said, “Keith has a unique ability to express profound truth in a way that’s simple and easy to understand.”
What does it cost?
Your decision on whether or not to host one of Keith’s concerts should never be a financial one, so we offer three options to make it possible for you to enjoy Keith’s music and benefit from his ministry regardless of your budget.
a.) Flat fee of $800 (*) This is usually for banquets, Sunday mornings, or a Free Concert for your community.
b.) We charge admission (either tickets or offering) and the host guarantees a minimum of $800 (*).
c.) Same as “b.”, but without the guarantee. Instead, Keith will come on faith and the host promises to work hard to promote the event. (This option depends on our ability to schedule a few other concerts in the area.)
(*)Note, if there is a business or individual in your community who wishes to underwrite the expenses of the concert, a tax-deductible receipt can be issued.

Keith works alongside of ministries like The Voice of the Martyrs and WorldServe Ministries to raise awareness and assistance for the persecuted church around the world and to foster renewal in the Church in North America.
“I’m honoured to work alongside The Voice of the Martyrs to raise awareness for the persecuted Church, and to come to her aid. Not only do we, in the Body of Christ, have a moral obligation to pray for and to assist our brothers and sisters who are suffering for their faith in Jesus, we have much to gain in return. There is a strength and depth of faith that, ironically, only develops under persecution. In fact, when the Church stops suffering, it often becomes an aberration of what God intended it to be. When we partner with persecuted Christians, and hear their stories of faith in the face of trials our own faith is strengthened and the character of Christ, the suffering servant, is formed in us.” – Keith
