Christmas Concert with our Symphonies!

The Sangamon Valley Youth Symphony, led by Conductor Richard Haglund, took part in the Annual Holiday Pops Concert on Saturday December 21, 2008. The concert is held each year at the Sangamon Auditorium, University of Illinois, Springfield Illinois and is a production led by the famed Illinois Symphony Orchestra (ISO).

Each year, the SVYS gets to play alongside ISO and this year, they were allowed three Christmas favorites! Bernie Lutchman III, 16, is a percussionist with SVYS in his 4th year and can be seen in the background as Maestra Karen Deal, of the ISO conducts both orchestras!!What a blessed and fun time for our family and all families involved in this excellent music adventure! There was such a great Christmas spirit everywhere!

Hello Folks,

Just a short note. My dear wife, Vicki Lutchman, composed a song called HOME FOR CHRISTMAS which is really inspired!

It was just completed a few weeks ago in a church with my nephew playing piano. We have copyrighted the song and are sending it out free, via email, to anyone to listen to and forward to a soldier or military personnel serving overseas.

If you wish a copy, please email Vicki at vlutchman@comcast.net!

God bless you and God bless America!

The Lutchman Family celebrates Christmas with Ministry of Song and the Word at the Villa Retirement Center West, Sherman, Illinois (December 5, 2008).


The Lord has put on my heart the follow up book to "TWO MINUTE WARNING"(2007) and am in the process of returning to work on it.

Based on 1 Thessalonians 5, the book is a more focused work on the manner in which a true disciple of Christ should conduct her or himself. It is called "CONDUCT BECOMING", and will have true life stories, short interviews and quotes from various friends of mine who are in national ministry.

Please pray for me as I research and write this book. My wife, Vicki Lutchman, is listed as the co-author. She has some great input from her rich family background and such. I am praying for a completion date of the end of February for certain.

Lead Eagle and Apostle to the Crow Nation in Yellowtail, Montana, Jim Chosa was headline teacher and evangelist at the recently concluded Illinois Apostolic Prayer Network 2008 Conference. Jim drove in from Montana with his earthly inspiration and lovely wife Faith for five sessions of amazing spirit-filled teaching.
All sessions were purposed for spiritual growth of the believer and/or prayer intercessor who seeks CHRIST ONLY and ONLY what God has written through His Word - the Bible.
What our redemption really means to recognizing and defeating the lies of the devil were just the tip of the iceberg, during the two days of this powerful time of solid instruction.
