We travelled to San Antonio in 2007 for our first ACTS Retreat. It was then that we heard the inspirational music of David Kauffman. His retreat reflections put to music have had a tremendous impact on all who listen to them and his Going Forth CD, in particular, inspires retreatants to allow Christ to flow through them in a profoundly personal way.

David’s music changes you. It widens your soul’s vision, heightens your inspiration, and deepens your grasp of the Divine. David’s music opens your Soul to resonate with God.

David Kauffman's music is all a prayer to God!

David’s music gave me courage and inspiration as I was discerning the call to religious life. As I would listen to his music in the car, I could hear God inviting me into that deeper relationship, especially as I listened/prayed with the albums, Follow Me and Surrender.

For many years, I have felt sustained by David's prayerful lyrics and beautiful voice, having drawn upon these gifts as a source of comfort during our family's long journey through severe chronic illness. I always feel myself drawn into the very depths of God's mercy and grace as I listen to this timeless invitation: “Be still, my love, know that I am God.”

David’s ministry of music leads me to a deeper understanding of scripture and a fuller realization of God’s love for ME!

I have been privileged to host David Kauffman in two Catholic Parishes for three concerts, to conduct two music minister retreats, and to produce his musical MOSES! David’s concerts are filled with his original and beautifully stirring music. Each song is clearly connected with his faith journey, and his servant life and ministry. His skill as a storyteller, songwriter, pianist, and guitarist is richly and warmly shared.

David’s music is written from the soul and reflects the many feelings and circumstances we meet along this journey. His song “Be Still” permeates my being when life becomes hectic. It is in the singing of this song that my mind is able to let go of its death grip on a problem I am facing and allow for the Holy Spirit to rest in me. David’s music is a part of my bone marrow; nourishing and life giving!

David’s songs are always my “go-to” source for music when I develop and facilitate retreats. I’ve been witness to how his words and music consistently resonate with people in a profound way and open them up to a deeper experience of God’s presence.
Jimmy Patterson Midland, TX
Music is about heart, and rarely does an artist come along who so sincerely and wholly opens the heart like David Kauffman. My spiritual life has been deeply enriched because of David’s talent; bringing together melody with the words we so often read and hear in the gospels. Together those two elements form the key that has opened the door of my heart to Jesus Christ.

I have witnessed time and time again how David’s music influences and impacts those who hear it. One time a young widower came to a Life after Loss support group. He let it be known he was only there because the deacon in his church thought it would be good for him to attend. He did not utter a word the entire time that the group was in session.
I then played the song, “This is What I am Working Through” from David’s Grief CD.
We finished the group and after everyone left, the reluctant group member stayed behind to tell me “whoever wrote and sang that that song gets it!” From that moment on, this gentleman embraced his grief and utilized the group to share his story and experience healing.

I lost my husband suddenly and David's music has seen me through my most difficult days of grief. His songs became my prayers when I couldn't pray in my own words.
