Bryann Trejo Kingdom Muzic Revival - New London
What:On November 18th, 2017 Bryann Trejo of Kingdom Muzic will be coming to New London, Connecticut to spread the LOVE of Jesus Christ. In an effort to help make this event possible we would love to partner with you! My wife and I had were drawn to Bryann Trejo through his testimony and the messages in his music, but mostly because of his heart for revival. Devoted husband and father of beautiful children, Bryann admits his first ministry is his family. (Our goal would be to bring his entire family here with him, if we are able to raise the funds.) He’s a man who walks his talk and who we believe, carries a timely message for the body of Christ. This is why we want to do what we can to support the work Bryann Trejo and Kingdom Muzic are doing. New London, CT needs to know that they are not without hope. It’s time to wake up, New England … we believe that God has given us a vision for this region and your donation will help us in our endeavor to bring hope to this region. This isn’t just entertainment.

Meet Bryann Trejo... Bryann “Kingdom Minded” Trejo’s story is one not only one of God’s overcoming power but also of His redeeming grace. Born in Corpus Cristi, TX, Bryann had a troubled childhood, to say the least. To say he made some bad choices would be an understatement. This troubled path reached it’s tipping point when Bryann was charged with 2 counts of attempted murder. It was during this very dark time in Bryann’s life, while awaiting trial, when he made the choice to give his life over to God . What was to be a 30 year prison sentence was reduced to 7 years plus time served. Bryann was then released on good behavior after serving only 4 years in prison. Shortly after Bryann was released from prison, came another traumatic blow. Bryann got word that his identical twin brother, Ryan Trejo (also a Christian Rapper), was murdered. Bryann came face to face with the truest testing of his faith and found himself challenged as thoughts of revenge clenched his mind in his excruciating pain. But, with God’s help, Bryann overcame this and instead of seeking revenge, he chose to love the murderers of his brother. This is where Bryann’s choice to press into God for comfort, healing and forgiveness resulted in the catapulting of what we now know as Kingdom Muzic.

Hope for Today
Don’t be selfish; don’t live to make a good impression on others. Be humble, thinking of others as better than yourself. Don’t just think about your own affairs, but be interested in others, too, and in what they are doing.
