Multiple award winning composer and founder of Music for the Soul, Steve Siler, says that this ministry was founded based on two firmly and passionately held beliefs: #1 is that Jesus is the compassionate healer, and #2, that music, particularly as expressed in a song, is one of God’s greatest gifts of communication, with the power to speak healing straight to people's hearts where words alone can often fail. These two beliefs are combined to create unique DVD/CD resources that help people engage with the truth on difficult issues. “Ultimately, our goal is that no one should ever feel alone. We want people to feel known, understood, and loved by others –and by God.”
