Rain Ministries is the home of RainSong Music and the First Nations Version translation.
Terry and Darlene currently live in Maricopa Arizona on the traditional land of the Tohono O’odham and the Pima. Terry’s time is divided between mentoring staff on Zoom for Native InterVarsity and working on the First Nations Version translation.
As RainSong Terry and Darlene travel North America and abroad, teaching, storytelling, sharing their music at First Nations gatherings, on Reservations, and also at Churches and Conferences. Because of COVID, they have not been traveling for the last year, but they hope that will change in the late Summer and Fall of 2021.
“We are dedicating our time and the gifts Creator has given us to serve the First Nations People of North America; working and praying to see dignity and harmony restored to individuals, families, clans, and tribal nations. We believe that the message of Creator’s Son Jesus is for all people and will transform the lives of all who follow Him. But we also believe that the message must be embraced within the context of every culture to be effective.”
They have produced six CD’s “Sacred Warrior”, “Rising Sun”, “Rise Up and Dance”, “Hoop of Life”, “Song of the Bluebird” and a storytelling CD with music called “The Great Story from the Sacred Book”. Their music style is a folk-rock blend with Native American instruments and melodies. They have also produced a DVD called Creation Speaks featuring a nature video from Alaska blended with their music.
Terry and Darlene founded Rain Ministries, a non-profit corporation based in Arizona in 2001, and have been actively involved in the lives of many First Nations people since 1998.
