What Folks Say About Us


We really do love how much people love us!   Honestly, we never get tired of hearing the praise reports and rave reviews.  We love how our music makes people happy in their heart - and it keeps us young at heart too.   Be sure to send us email and let us know how we made your heart happy!



Thank you so much for blessing our hearts at the evangelism conference for the Baptist Convention of New Mexico. I believe that you are the finest Senior Choir that I have ever heard. You not only sang with spirit, but you sang with grace and power.


James Semple,  Acting Executive Director, Baptist Convention New Mexico




Congratulations to the Young At Heart Choir for its many accomplishments. It is nice to see such dedication and success come from a group that has been around since 1988. Your participation, team effort, and commitment to your choir is greatly appreciated in our community. I am confident that the standing ovation you received at the “All State Teachers Conference” will not be your last one. Best wishes on your continued success, and future accomplishments.


Heather Wilson, Member of Congress




Thank You for ministering to Liberty Baptist Church!


Senior Sunday was a tremendous day. As a result there were many first time visitors and it may have been the first time some have heard the gospel.


Your program was fantastic and enjoyed by everyone. I appreciate your faithfulness to the Lord as each of you continue to serve Him.   Again, thank you for coming to Liberty Baptist Church.”


Dr. Gary R. Jackson, Pastor

Sarasota, Florida




Young At Heart will bring a message of spiritual vitality to your church. Our congregation, young and old and all in between were blessed and challenged by their music, humor, and deep commitment to Jesus Christ.

Foursquare Church Littleton, CO




Young At Heart is a wonderful ministry that will bless and encourage all ages. Their Humor and their Love for God and people are truly an inspiration.

Sierra View Homes, a retirement facility was honored to host The Young At Heart Choir. This choir is an outstanding group of seniors that love to sing and share their love for God through music. The Young At Heart Choir rates right up there with the best of concerts. We look forward to having them come back next year, and every year that they tour the Golden State.


Nancy Petinak,  Activities Director

Sierra View Homes, Reedley, CA   




The music was wonderful.  It brought back so many wonderful memories.


A high percentage of our guests are retired or near retirement age. I thought the greatest thing the choir shared was a people with vision and purpose, reaching out in ministry and touching others.  In God’s kingdom there is work for each of us to do.


People are drawn to happy, joyful people. Thank you for coming and sharing ministry with us.  We pray that God will continue to work in the hearts of those who were touched.


Kay Peterson, Director The Great Passion Play Eureka Springs, AR




In case anyone is wondering about having the Young at Heart Choir for a service, put your mind at ease and have them. Everyone will enjoy them. I mean all ages will be blessed. The music and choice of numbers is exciting and spiritually uplifting. There is some much-needed humor as well as heart-touching ministry in the songs. Everyone in our church who attended the concert was blessed and inspired. Take advantage of this group if you possibly can. 


Rev. Paul McEachern, Pastor First Foursquare Church, El Paso, Texas




WOW, they are great!! 


What a wonderful program! Be sure you get them next year! We need more groups like this – they are humorous, inspirational and have great voices. 


Those people really prove Christians can have FUN too! They came, they charmed, they captivated! It is an evening we will all remember.


Comments given to Eileen Corre Shell Pointe Village, Ft. Meyers, Florida




The Young at Heart Choir does a fabulous job of communicating the Gospel through the use of humor, dramatic visual effects, testimonials, and, most of all, sincere people who love the Lord Jesus!


As a former music director, I was most impressed with the talent level of this group. Their leader, Connie Atkinson, exudes enthusiasm and ability. You will be truly blessed by having this outstanding and dedicated group in your church!


D. Rix W. Tillman, Senior Pastor

Immanuel Baptist Church El Paso, Texas




The message this choir brought to our church was of the Gospel, the fun Christians ought to be able to have, and the joy of service. They brought a vibrant message with a fine balance of fun and seriousness. The people are still talking about them (positively) among our church body.


The question was asked, “Would you have them back?” Answer: “In a heartbeat!”


Joe Scoggin, Assoc. Pastor

First Baptist Church Lehigh Acres, Florida




Awesome! Energetic! Worshipful! Fun!


Not necessarily words we normally associate with Senior Adults. YAH breaks the mold as far as Senior Adults stereotype! 


This group of energetic Keenagers if refreshingly connecting to folks of ever age bracket.


If you want a Christ Centered, Fun Filled Energetic Heart worship meeting, invite this group of wonderful servants to your church.


 Pastor Walter Partain




The choir is wonderful & exciting!


Just enough humor to make it all interesting. However, their love for the Lord was so evident every time they sang. 


After serving as the Minister of Music for 40 years, this was one of those time when I wished I was still on a church staff, so I could have scheduled them to sing in MY church. Any church in America would be blessed to have them in concert!
