From a boy on his daddy’s farm to a Christian singer/songwriter, Trevor Baker shares his love for God through his down-to earth “new country” sound and inspiring lyrics.
Stressing that his ministry is non-denominational, and not limited to Christian venues only, he also plays at fairs, festivals, schools and prisons. Many who would never darken a church door identify with Trevor’s music and lyrics. His soft voice and gentle manner complement his message of hope and encouragement.
Trevor Baker will bring that message of hope and encouragement to the Discovery Community Church on Nov. 21 at 7 p.m.
Baker has done well over 1,700 concerts in his 15 years of full time ministry. Prior to that there were several years of part time ministry; which included singing on street corners. God; in His own unique way, has placed Baker on many stages.
Feeling undeserving of such opportunities he has shared his message with many people of influence; including the Prime Minister of Canada.
Baker has also sang in the United States at David Wilkerson’s Times Square Church in New York City twice.
After picking up the guitar in 1990, Baker went on to release 16 albums and 3 DVDs; which have received airplay in Canada, and some in the United States, Europe ad other parts of the world. He has written and recorded over 170 songs to date.
With much of the present church age running after every wind and wave of doctrine, most of the songs that God has given him are calling the church back to repentance. Although he has won awards he finds that many times they only get in the way of the message.
“There are many things in life that are uncertain,” he says. “I grew up thinking that God was one of them.”
Baker admits openly that he was searching for some meaning in life. He didn’t like the angry young man that he was and felt that his life had no direction. During this time of crisis, Baker says that he met a “genuine, simple kinda’ preacher” in a little church who introduced him to Jesus Christ; the only one that could give him peace and direction.
Presently living in Tuxford, Saskatchewan with his wife Jennifer, Baker takes time to reflect.
“I now know that true happiness comes from knowing God and trusting in His plan for my life and family. I intend to sing songs for Him and Him alone; that I might bring the message of the Gospel to so many who are searching for Truth and stability in this old world.”
