"It is all joy for me to recommend an awesome worship band, Copper Coins. I was blessed to partner with them in a revival where I preached and they sang. They are a perfect mix between ability and humility. Their vulnerability points people to King Jesus. Not only are they excellent musicians, their voices are also extraordinary. I hope I get to partner with them again and again. They are the real deal."
- Pastor Kerry Willis (Philadelphia District Superintendent - Church of the Nazarene) -
"Copper Coins played our revival services and they were an absolute pleasure to work with. The band was prompt, flexible, dependable, and easy to work with. Much more importantly than that, Copper Coins modeled worship in spirit and truth the entire time they were with us. They led the music in our services so well and with obvious devotion to Christ. We would have them back any time!"
- Rev. Phillip Nase (Lead Pastor at the Owego Church of the Nazarene in Owego, NY) -
"It's all about Jesus! That is what I have to say about my experiences with Copper Coins. I've had them at Mount Pisgah Wesleyan Church a couple times. What you see on the platform is what you see in their regular, everyday interactions. And it's all about Jesus and encouraging His Church to be strong. It's all about lifting up His name in heartfelt worship! I can't recommend Copper Coins highly enough!"
- Pastor Jeff Falke (Pastor at Mount Pisgah Wesleyan Church in Columbia Cross Roads, PA) -
"Working with Copper Coins for several events now has been excellent. They always provide an encouraging and entertaining experience that is well attended. Kind-hearted and Christ-like attitudes! Looking forward to many more years of partnering with them."
- Pastor Andy Bashwinger (Pastor at the Waverly Alliance Church in Waverly, NY) -
"They did a very worshipful and enjoyable concert at our church last Saturday. Highly recommended!"
- Rev. Paul Irwin (Pastor at the Twin Tiers Evangelical Presbyterian Church in Big Flats, NY) -
"Copper Coins is an amazing band! They are a very kind, warm and a loving group of individuals. Their heart for worship is to genuinely lead people to God and for His glory to shine through them. I've experienced worship with many bands and I have come across a variety of different personalities - I'm blessed to say my experience with this band has ONLY been positive and edifying. They are supportive of other worship artists and support those who are striving for the same cause, TO LIFT JESUS UP THROUGH WORSHIP MUSIC! Thankful for their ministry and for their hearts! Look forward to worshiping with ya'll again!! ♥"
- DiAnza Macool (fellow Christian musician/artist and also worship leader at Fresh Start Church in Hornell, NY) -
"Copper Coins has had an important impact in my life through their music and through their love for the Lord. Not only is this a group that pursues excellence musically, but they make it very clear that their purpose is to worship the living Lord. I have had the privilege of knowing these band members personally through a number of years and I can tell you without hesitation that these folks are genuine in their testimony for Jesus Christ. Several years ago, I left a pastorate of nearly 19 years in order to follow God's leading in a church consulting ministry. At my closing service with my church, Copper Coins led the worship and ministered to my anxious soul as I was stepping out into uncharted waters. Words cannot express how much that has impacted my life. I would strongly recommend Copper Coins to your church in order to serve you and to lift up Jesus."
- Rev. Steve Reynolds (Founder of 4T I-40 Church Consultation Service and former Pastor at the Waverly First Baptist in Waverly, NY) -
"Copper Coins is an excellent band for leading you into worship. They have the words for you to follow on a screen so you can join them. We enjoy having them at Twin Tiers Rock the House every year."
- John Ashton Cartin (venue host at Twin Tiers Rock the House, hosted by Twin Tiers Christian Church in Painted Post, NY) -
"Copper Coins' performances and original music are more than just great music. Their original songs and lyrics are truly inspired. Their messages are relevant, and their talent performing is worth while for the band and their audience. After seeing them several times, their music gets more inspiring every time."
- Douglas Kosty (follower of the band and frequent bootleg videographer) -
"We always look forward to Copper Coins coming to share with us. Their professionalism, talents, attitude and heart for the Lord are all first rate. They are extremely easy to work with, punctual and very conscientious of their sound, volume and mission. They are a true joy."
- Paul Estro (Owner/Operator of Halsey Valley Victory House Arts & Worship Center in Spencer, NY) -
"Copper Coins has been a great partner in sharing the Good News in the Sayre Community through their wonderful musical talents, but even more through their loving and grace-filled spirit; exhibited before, during, and after their performances. We will continue to invite them to partner with our ministries at Sayre Christian Church."
- Pastor Kevin Arensman (former Pastor at the Sayre Christian Church in Sayre, PA, now serving at Red Rock Christian Church in Boise, ID) -
"The thing I love most about the Copper Coins band is that they take their music and performances very seriously. Not because they want to receive the credit and show how good they are but as a band they want to glorify God through their talents and music. The Copper Coins emotion and passion creates a very powerful and presence felt time of worship for all. When you sing worship music you want to feel like the band is not just leading but worshipping alongside you as well; and the Copper Coins do an excellent job with this when they play. Not only can the band connect with you musically but also through their powerful testimonies of how God has radically changed their lives as well. I highly recommend them to play for one of your church events."
- Rev. Arnie Buehler (former Youth Pastor and Assistant Pastor at Valleyview Alliance Church in Vestal, NY, now serving as Senior Pastor at Bowling Green Alliance Church in Bowling Green, OH) -
"I went to one of the best concerts that I have ever been to. I didn't have to go to Rochester or Binghamton for it. Copper Coins came right here to Chemung Christian Fellowship. The evening was invested in Praising the Name of Jesus. Our new lighting system worked top notch."
- Rev. Randy Stilson (Pastor at the Chemung Christian Fellowship in Chemung, NY) -
Our vision is to glorify God and see hearts stirred by Christ as He speaks through us and our music.
Copper Coins seeks to glorify God and spread the good news of salvation through music and song. It is our hope that, through our music and testimonies, other believers are edified and those who don't yet know Christ come to a saving knowledge of Him in their lives. We began our journey quite simply as a worship band and we still consider ourselves as such. However, we have also come to believe and agree that we were not just called together by God to lead others in worship but to also lead others to Him and discover the reason for and object of our worship. It is for this reason that we are open to playing anywhere God may call us, whether inside or outside the church or Christian/non-Christian event.
