Book Christa Matheou.

In the years since the Lord first called Christa into music ministry, He has utilized her unique voice to communicate His love for us through song. Her objective is clear – “that the world may know”.

Christa was called into the ministry at a very young age. During those impressionable years she ran from that calling out of fear. It wasn’t until the age of 27 and the birth of her daughter that she rededicated her life completely to the Lord and was obedient to what God wanted for her. She literally took a step of faith. Since that time, God has opened many doors, and Christa has been ministering throughout the United States for the last 12 years.

In addition to her Concert Ministry, Christa is also a nationally known Keynote Speaker and Worship Leader for Women’s Ministries and has had the privilege of sharing the stage with artist such as Chonda Pierce and Tammy Trent. She encourages women that it is never too late to give your life over to Jesus Christ, and that He can give healing, hope, and forgiveness to a wounded heart. Her songs and her testimony reflect the promise and the faithfulness that we have in Him.

Christa is a recording artist and an accomplished singer/songwriter. Her first solo recording, “The Other Side” includes songs such as “He’s Been Faithful”, “I Bowed On My Knees and Cried Holy”, and “He’ll Do It Again”. Her second solo recording “Follow The Cross” has been extremely successful. This project is near to Christa’s heart, as she has written many of the songs with the help of Dove Award Winner and Songwriter, Kenn Mann. It includes songs such as “Follow The Cross”, “In Your Presence”, “Old Time Religion Medley”, “My Eyes Are Dry”, and “He’s An On Time God”. Her music can be heard on the Moody Broadcasting Stations.

Christa resides in Clearwater, Florida with her husband John, daughter Katelyn, and son John Michael. Christa has found a place to minister in her community through her involvement of Kathy’s House. Portions of the sale of “Follow The Cross”, will go directly to Kathy’s House, a house that is currently being planned for mentally handicapped young women. This is a home that was envisioned by Kathy Bronson. She was a wife, friend and mother of three who battled cancer for 30 of her 44 years. Her adult daughter Carrie is mentally handicapped and it was Kathy’s wish that Carrie would be able to live an independent and productive life in a Christian environment. Kathy went home to her heavenly Father on August 17, 2000. Kathy’s House has become a vital part of Christa’s ministry. The songs “House of Hope” and “Southside of Heaven” were written especially for this project.

Christa’s deepest desire is for everyone to experience the love, forgiveness, and healing that only comes from Jesus Christ. Christa’s music ministry continues to take the Light into the world. (John 8:12)

The Potter’s Clay – Worthy Vessels
Do you like what you see when you look in the mirror? Has life turned out like you thought it would? Can the pieces of your life ever be put back together again? What can be done for an old heart like mine? These are some of the probing questions Christa presents that will encourage you to take a closer look at your relationship with Jesus Christ. You will walk away knowing and believing that you are a worthy child of God. He has a very special plan for your life – a plan to bring Him honor and glory, no matter what your past may be.

Following The Cross and Finding Joy
Do you remember the song we used to sing, “I’ve got the joy, joy, joy, joy down in my heart”? Well, I’ve heard it said “if you really have the joy of the Lord in your heart, you ought to telephone your face and let it know”! Too few Christians are radiating the presence of the Lord in their life. Christa takes a different approach on why so many are following the cross but so few are experiencing joy. It is her desire that all believers will be able to proclaim the words El Simchah Giyl (pronounced LSim-Khaw Gheel) which means “God is my exceeding joy”.

Are You Ready For Battle?
The Bible says in John 10:10 (NIV) that “The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life and have it to the full.” What have you allowed Satan to steal from you? Whatever it may be it is time to learn how to take it back and to put on the full armor of God so that we are prepared to fight.

Have a “Mary” Christmas
Mary Magdalene understood the depth of her sin. She came to Jesus unashamed. Each time we see Mary, we see her at the feet of Jesus. She loved Him and her heart wanted to please Him; for you see, Mary had a love relationship with Him. What is your relationship like with Jesus Christ? Are you still at the level of what can God do for me, or are you asking what can God do “through me”? We are in such a hurry at Christmas time that we can forget that the celebration is about the birth of our Savior. All of us can be a “Mary” not only at Christmas time but also all through the year if we take the time to be at His feet and take the time to develop a love relationship with the one who gave His life, so that we might live.
