About
It All Began…. Jilleen… is an artist that finds her inspiration in her love for the Lord. Born & raised in South Africa, a happy and musical young girl began her journey. At age 9, Jilleen was given the opportunity to sing at her Dad’s church meeting. This was the start of what she would find to be her absolute passion! She later recorded that song on her Dad’s album. Later, at age 12, her family were on their way to America. Jilleen said, “We traveled in ministry from church to church, seeing God work miracles in Our Lives and the Lives of Others. During this time, I followed my passion for Music, Singing and Performing. This eventually became a much deeper & important purpose in my life….Ministry!” By the time she’d reached her late teens, she had already sung all over the world and her path was clear…Music & Ministry.
Ministry…. Raised on the road & in meetings almost every night, she spent a great deal of time in the presence of the Lord. Jilleen said, “From God’s sweet presence, came a Deep Love and Understanding of the Lord. My personal walk with God developed into sharing His great love with the world! All that God had done for me, for my family and for others, all that He has for us!” Jilleen has been a part of ministry in many different ways. From Singing on & Leading the Worship Team, Performance Singing, a part of the organizational team for planning revival conferences for her parents to Mission trips to Thailand in 1995 & a New Mexico-Mission to the Native American Indians in 1996. Traveled extensively with TRM Ministries, participating in ministry in USA, Canada, Germany, Scotland, Hong Kong and The Phillipines. At 17, Jilleen released a demo and in 2000 a family member blessed her with the opportunity to make her first album… ”Where No One Goes” , which was released in 2001. She toured briefly with TRM, Inc. & the support was amazing! In 2002, Jilleen married and she says, “We are blessed to say that almost 16 years later, we are still together!”.
A Message From Jilleen…. When someone asks me what my vision is, I say…”I want to show the world how much God Loves them & that He has a plan for their lives”. Salvation is for Eternity, but with Salvation, comes the opportunity to have a Relationship with Jesus . We CAN walk with God because of what Jesus did for us on the Cross at Calvary! For the last 16 years, I have walked an amazing journey with the Lord. I have had wonderful opportunities to work with many different people in different positions outside of the ministry, giving me a very “Real” perspective on the lives of people and what people deal with. God has helped me through some very difficult times and everything I learned as a child and teenager, was put to practice. I can say from my Own Experiences that God’s Word is True and Never Returns Void . I know what it is like to get to a place where you feel you cannot go on…a place of brokenness and pain and God has been faithful! As I’ve leaned on Jesus, He has pulled me out of every mess and given me Joy, Peace and Hope! God is the reason I Live and Breathe…He is my Everything!
