The directors of WitnesSing are a husband and wife team, Milton and Jeanne Zahn. Milt serves as Senior Pastor at Jenkins Memorial Church in Pasadena, MD. Milt and Jeanne have been married 40 years and have been friends for over 69 years. They have been serving the Lord through music for 35 years.
Forming a choir that sang Contemporary Christian music was a desire that came from seeing how much they were filled and blessed by the voice and songs sung in the 80’s and 90’s by Sandi Patty. While sitting outside of His Way Christian Bookstore in Glen Burnie, God gave Milt and Jeanne the name “WitnesSing.” It fit what they wanted to do for Him. Letters were sent out to see if anyone was interested in joining the group and 21 people showed up at their house in December 1995 to help begin the ministry.
Over the years,WitnesSing has been blessed to witness through music with hundreds of singers and musicians. Many friends, strangers who become friends, and relatives (including Milt and Jeanne’s daughter, son-in-law and grandchildren) have joined the choir. Each season they anxiously wait to see who the Lord will send to help witness and to see where He has chosen for WitnesSing to share His message of salvation. Milt and Jeanne believe that music plows the heart, so that the seed of the spoken word of God may be planted. They look forward to plowing many hearts in the future!
