Ministries of Heavenly Harp & Karing Journey Give Back!

Our Giving - to You, in the U.S. and Abroad

Heavenly Harp & Karing Journey have always been committed to serving, healing and loving.  Currently we do this in several ways:


1. Through our concert tours ~ 

* to help people recover from the grief of losing a loved one

* help people know they don't have to fear death

* give Christians have resources to minister to those going through difficult circumstances


2. Through our retreats ~

* to help create extended, deep Christian community

* to help Christians grow exponentially in a concentrated time

* to help Christians remember how to be the light, love, fun and joy of Christ to the world

* to help people recover from traumatic events, negative emotions and limiting beliefs


3. Through Scholarships ~

* educational scholarships for students

* scholarships for those in financial need to be able to attend a retreat


4. Through Ministry ~

* "Beauty from Ashes" retreats offered in safe houses, for girls & women recovering from sex-trafficking, helping them discover they can be a "new creation" in Christ

*Your purchases and donations allowed Karin Gunderson to receive training to bring "Beauty from Ashes" retreats anywhere!  This effective retreat for restoring human dignity & helping people recover from shame, guilt & other disempowering emotions will bless many people!

*Let us know if you would like us to bring this retreat to your church & community


5. Through providing clean water ~

*Through our summer tour with Heavenly Harp, we were able to donate a well that will service up to 500 families so they gain access to clean, safe water. 

*Communities are healthier. People spend less money on medical expenses and more on food and education. 

*Instead of spending hours each day gathering water for the family, women and children have time for work and school. 


Thank you to everyone who came to our concerts this summer and made all of these things possible!

Site Content

Additional Information

This is a long form text area designed for your content that you can fill up with as many words as your heart desires. You can write articles, long mission statements, company policies, executive profiles, company awards/distinctions, office locations, shareholder reports, whitepapers, media mentions and other pieces of content that don’t fit into a shorter, more succinct space.


Articles – Good topics for articles include anything related to your company – recent changes to operations, the latest company softball game – or the industry you’re in. General business trends (think national and even international) are great article fodder, too.


Mission statements – You can tell a lot about a company by its mission statement. Don’t have one? Now might be a good time to create one and post it here. A good mission statement tells you what drives a company to do what it does.


Company policies – Are there company policies that are particularly important to your business? Perhaps your unlimited paternity/maternity leave policy has endeared you to employees across the company. This is a good place to talk about that.


Executive profiles – A company is only as strong as its executive leadership. This is a good place to show off who’s occupying the corner offices. Write a nice bio about each executive that includes what they do, how long they’ve been at it, and what got them to where they are.
