Two years ago, the dream of starting a Boy's Choir was born when two young boys both indicated their desire to sing in the West Coast Mennonite Men's Chorus. Because of this excitement, last year we started out with six boys. The Boy's Choir was enthusiastically received and will again be part of the regular men's chorus. Our hope and prayer is that the West Coast Mennonite Boy's Choir will grow to become a viable extension of the West Coast Mennonite Men's Chorus, and will provide generations of new singers.

Jack Wilcox, Dennis Glover and Joseph Linn have been singing together for more than twenty-five years. Their latest recording, I Stand Redeemed, is indicative of the message they share through their music. The Joe Linn Trio has sung in local churches throughout the west coast, conference settings such as Hume Lake Christian Camps, Mt. Hermon, and Forest Home. Jack, a business owner, Dennis, the Captain of a police department, and Joseph, Executive Pastor, publisher, are actively involved in their local churches, Neighborhood Church, Castro Valley, CA, and Redwood Chapel Community Church, Castro Valley, CA. It is the hope of the Trio that the music they share will focus the hearts and minds of the listener on Jesus, our Redeemer, Savior and Friend
