Nashville, Tenn. – Sept. 5, 2019 – For over 45 years, Kempke’s Music Service has served as one of the most-trusted music resource and solution providers for churches. Beginning Jan. 1, 2020, Kempke’s will join the LifeWay Worship family. This strategic move ensures churches everywhere will continue receiving the highest quality service and uninterrupted access to music from every major Christian music publisher. During the transition, Kempke’s will continue sales and customer service operations while working with LifeWay Worship on order fulfillment.
“The name ‘Kempke’s’ is synonymous with great people and great service to churches,” says Mike Harland, director of LifeWay Worship. “Through the years, Shirley has been such a great friend to me and churches all over. I have always appreciated Kempke’s dedication to helping music leaders find resources for ministry and have often been the beneficiary of that service personally. LifeWay Worship is honored to partner with Kempkes to carry forward this great tradition.”
Shirley Kempke, CEO of Kempke’s Music Service, shared her excitement with the decision to join with Lifeway Worship. “Celebrating 45 years of business this year has been a time of rejoicing! Both Kellie and I are extremely blessed to have the opportunity for Kempke’s to join the Lifeway Worship family. This decision allows Kempke’s customers to continue to receive the same service and discounts they are used to receiving,” said Kempke. “God has granted us the opportunity to meet so many people in the ministry and both of our lives have truly been blessed.“
Kempke’s and LifeWay Worship look forward to celebrating this new relationship at two of Kempke’s most popular choral conferences in January 2020 – Music Florida and Winter Music Texas. More details about these events will be announced in the coming days.
