KB Gunn has been a musician and recording engineer for so long that he can't remember when he started. He is certain that it was after the advent of the industrial age, but before man walked on the moon. He used to freeze his tootsies in the frozen tundra of southern Vermont, but now resides in south eastern North Carolina. It is so nice to be warm. He is a voting member of NARAS which produces the Grammys.
KB has a habit of being unconventional when it comes to Christian music because he does not listen often to existing CCM recordings. He does not want to be locked into a formula. He does not see himself as a minister to Christians, but as a minstrel to Christians to be. He has a focus on evangelism, not praise and worship for ministry to the Church. If Christians like the music, that is just fine, but it is meant to bring a lost and dying generation to a relationship with Jesus. Isn't that what it is all about?
KB was raised in a Jewish home and was being groomed to become a cantor. When he was Bar Mitzvah, he decided to leave Judaism and be a rock and roller. At the age of 28, he became a Christian and started singing songs to the Lord after all. Not quite what the cantor and rabbi wanted, but it was what the Lord wanted.
KB and his wife Cari created the web site: www.visionoutreach.net five years ago.
Vision Outreach Ministries is dedicated to reaching Jewish people for Yeshua (Jesus). We also provide for the Church an understanding of the true origins of our faith. It all came out of Judaism and many of the mysteries of the bible are not mysteries at all if you understand the underlying Jewish meanings.
"During the 90's, Jay Stern, Steven Webb and I toured the northeast and Canada as a music group called, "Ruach". The most difficult times of ministry were when we ministered in public outdoors. For instance, in Burlington, VT, we were booed and hissed at. People shouted obscenities at us while we ministered. And yet, the people who stopped and listened and opened their eyes and ears for the first time, made the slanderous shouting bearable. We ministered to churches and messianic groups all over the place, and yet I could not help thinking about the public presentations blessing the Lord so much more than when we were sharing with the body of Christ. His Word was reaching people who would never step foot into a church building. We were meeting people in their own territory. It was bold and daring. It could not have been done on our own. It had to be the Holy Spirit anointing that got us through the public outreaches."
