Encouraging Words from a Brand-New Fan
Fri., May. 27. 2022 8:03pm EDT

J. Jackson from ApologetiX here again.

We received an enormously encouraging email on Monday from a new fan in Lancaster PA named Patrick Engle. He gave us permission to share what he wrote:

I would really just like to say thank you for the longstanding history of music included here. I only learned of ApologetiX last week, and I am truly beyond blown away. The creativity of the lyrics for these songs are unfathomable, let alone the fact that they are backing the most important message of all time, the Holy Bible and the story of our Lord Jesus Christ.

I am so thankful to God that He is using ApologetiX for such an incredible story of redemption over music, an industry relatively known as very worldly and secular.

I just really want to say thank you. The songs, the lyrics, and the message have been a huge inspiration for my own musical aspirations, and they are just such a blessing to help me refocus on what really matters. These songs have already become an integral part of my day, especially while working in a secular field. They help me tremendously to stay focused on our God and the importance of daily connection with Him.

I am honored to be able to support the mission and the vision of ApologetiX and I eagerly await seeing what other musical gifts will come, but in the meantime, I now have plenty to listen to and enjoy.

May God grant you and the whole team peace, joy, and blessings on your endeavors.


I later discovered that Patrick was born in 1992, the year ApologetiX played its first concert, so we both made our debuts the same year. He became a born-again Christian in 2017, the same year we played our last concert. Those are some interesting parallels, although we're sorry he didn't get to see us play live. Lancaster is about 250 miles from Pittsburgh, but we played there (and in the surrounding areas) many times.

However, with the current price of gas and diesel, and all the restrictions of the previous two years, it's been a good thing for the survival of this band that we had already made the shift from a touring band to a full-time recording band. I miss seeing our fans in person, but I would miss seeing my family in person even more. Furthermore, it has enabled us to produce at least four times as much music, and I'm thankful God is still using it to reach people who've never heard us before.
