Christian vocal duo Blake and Jenna Bolerjack will be performing in Claremore this Sunday at the Claremore at the Claremore Church of the Nazarene.
As husband and wife, Blake and Jenna express their faith through their music with gentleness and a testimony of love and commitment with their marriage.
The duo will be performing live prior to Kevin Williams, longtime member of the Gaither Vocal Band, who also will be performing in concert.
“Singing music which spans generations, mixing classic and modern styles, Blake’s vocals and Jenna’s are sure to inspire and encourage,” said Shirley Nickles, Claremore Church of the Nazarene member. “I’m sure that the Bolerjacks — just like Kevin Williams — will entertain, inspire and encourage everyone who attends their performance.”
In addition to their singing, the couple also talk about Jenna’s recent cancer diagnosis and the faithfulness of God that they’ve seen through this trial.
“We have been given the privilege of walking through a crisis this past year,” Blake said. “In December 2015 Jenna was diagnosed with stage 2 Breast Cancer. She quickly was ushered into treatment for this particularly aggressive cancer. She endured 8 chemo treatments followed by major surgery in May 2016.
“By God’s grace, the treatments were very effective and her prognosis is full recovery,” he continued. “Not to be stopped, my bull-headed wife continued traveling with me and singing throughout her treatment. She even recorded our first full length duet CD project with me in the short weeks between her last chemo treatment and surgery.
“This CD, ‘He Knows. He Cares’ is what we sing together in our concerts, declaring what the Lord has done and how we’ve gotten to experience firsthand his faithfulness, provision, and joy through this life threatening storm,” he said.
“Jenna has gotten to proclaim the goodness of God in her doctors’ appointments, interactions with other patients, and sharing about how she does not have to ‘fear bad news’ because she knows who holds her in his capable hands,” he said. “We take the time, wherever we go, to give thanks that whatever the prognosis, whatever the situation, in Jesus we have a win-win situation. Jenna sings her heart out on a song called ‘All Is Well’ and shares her testimony.”
The concert begins at 6 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 11 at the church, located at 1336 N. Dorothy, and will be preceded by an Indian Taco Dinner from 3-5 p.m. Doors open at 5 p.m.
The concert will be free, but a love offering will be taken.
