I gave my life to Christ at a Mylon
LeFevre concert at Atlanta Fest in Six Flags Georgia and went on to
be a member of a contemporary Christian band and covered some of
Mylon's songs, but mainly performed originals ... ministering to
youth in Churches and various youth related functions throughout the
The presence of God was tangible at that concert back in the early
90s and I remember looking across a crowd of over 10 thousand people
and seeing their hands raised toward heaven ... then hearing God
call me to him.
Thanks Mylon and Broken Heart for your ministry.
I saw him in Athens,Georgia when I was at UGA. I talked
to him afterwards. I remember a statement he made to me,
"All these preachers are worried about lights and long
hair while the kids are going to hell." That turned me
on to his ministry.
I used to love Mylon and
the band's visits to
100 Huntley Street and appearances on our late night
talk program, Nite Lite in Toronto. I loved the
excellent videos, slick, fun and highly professional
concerts, light shows and digital Peavey equipment and
grounded music and lyrics. I was part time producer/
director of Nite Lite then in the 80's. Really enjoyed
our early morning breakfasts and Mylon's laid back
Thanks for being a great servant and mentor for Jesus

I've posted in your memories section awhile
back. I just wanted to share this pic
of Mylon, my family & myself.
He came to a church in
Glen Burnie, Maryland earlier this year. For
years I would look on Mylon's itinerary and
he would never come to Maryland. I just
happened to look on his site on day and
there it was Glen Burnie, MD.!
As you know...Mylon and
Christi were a blessing.
The far left is my wife
Michelle, and to the far right is my 16 year
old son Mylon. I named him after big Mylon
Thanks for this site.
It is a blessing to all of us who have been
greatly touched by Mylon's ministry over the
Blessings to you and
your family. Love the updates! Keep up the
good work man!
(Two Mylon's in this picture, I love it. . .
I was about 16 (1975) when my
youth pastor shared this incredible album with me it was
"WE BELIEVE". That album has been a great influence in
my life showing me it was cool to rock and still believe
in God. Mylon's music and life have blessed my life
along with my family and friends. Thanks.
Oh goodness, the memories!
Wow! Mylon and his band were just so easy to talk
to, like people you knew all your life. I remember
talking with them at the old PTL Heritage USA water
park. Mylon had just gone down the 40 ft.?
waterslide and telling us how awesome it was (it
wasn't open to the general public yet.) Then we
started talking about the concert coming up that
night, and we all started teasing Mylon about being
long-winded, so the band members said they were
going to make big stop signs for people to hold up
if he went on too long!
At a concert in
Louisville, we had our 4 year old son with us and my
son still remembers Mylon spending time with him,
talking with him and rubbing his back.
I don't know how long
you've known Mylon, but if it's been a while, I'm
sure you've noticed how he "talks" quite a bit
differently than he use to. He use to be very blunt
and to the point, no holds barred. For instance, my
husband, Brian, had just gotten a new job and was
finding it hard to find time for daily prayer and
Bible reading. He started to tell Mylon about this
when Mylon interrupted him and said, "You've got
time to poop, don't you? If you've got time to poop,
you've got time to pray!" Now I can't imagine this
new Mylon with his short hair, suit and tie, and
very religious sounding newsletters saying that, but
that is the Mylon I remember and love! Someone that
would come up to us and give us a hug whenever he
saw us, just like a brother.
Other than being on
his mailing list, I'm really not involved in his new
ministry. I know better than to judge someone by
their looks, but now Mylon kind of intimidates me.
It is hard for me to realize that he is the same
person we use to hang out with. Something I need to
just get over, I guess. If he ever does come to
Kentucky, though, I will definitely go by and say
We are very happy to
find this website! You have done a great job on it!
I have filled out the questionnaire as well.
We first saw Mylon
LeFevre in Toronto in the summer of 1987. We had
collected all of his albums and he was our favorite
Christian artist. The concert was incredible and we
were most impressed with Mylon's gospel preaching
and that he felt that it was so important that
people be told that they needed the Lord. Some other
artists didn't do much preaching or none at all. I
was expecting our first child at the time and
because we liked and appreciated Mylon LeFevre and
all that he stood for, we decided to call our little
boy Mylon also. This was a new name to a lot of our
acquaintances but we were able to tell them that he
was named after our favorite gospel singer.
In 1988, we went to
Cornerstone near Chicago and were privileged to hear
Mylon LeFevre again. Our Mylon was six months old
and enjoyed the music, bouncing to it on my
husband's shoulders! We would have loved to meet
Mylon L. after the concert and show him our Mylon
but felt that it wouldn't be right to go and talk
with him when there were people waiting to talk to
him, wanting to know how to be saved. It seems very
unlikely that we will meet him on earth but we
definately will in heaven!
We still listen to
Mylon's CD's of course and have watched some of his
ministry online. Our son Mylon is now 19 and a
Christian. He is attending university, is part of a
small Christian band and loves playing guitar. I
have attached a couple of pictures. Mylon is the
son who is standing, on the front right in our
May the Lord continue to
greatly bless Mylon and Christi's ministry and may
God bless you and your family as well.

I was a teen in the 80's
and Mylon's music had such a strong impact on my
life. I found him on you tube and started crying
listening to More, reminds me of the undisputed love
I have for our heavenly father, thank you for the
reminders of my child hood and making my day! Deb
