"We certainly enjoyed having you and Rose visit with us. I have heard many glowing remarks about your concert. It was a great and much-blessed day! Thanks again for coming and sharing your ministry with us! We all look forward to seeing you again." Pastor Doug Drown - North Sedgwick Baptist Church, Sedgwick, Maine We had a great time in service this Sunday with Tedd Fish and his wife, Rose. Celebrate Hope Ministry is a great ministry and I recommend all Pastor's to have them at your church. Great couple with a great ministry. Music, testimonies and all around great encouragement! You will not be disappointed! Pastor Jon Randall - HIS Church, Oxford, ME
Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ, This letter is to recommend to you Tedd and Rose Fish. We had them here this past Sunday, and their ministry was powerful and refreshing. They minister out of their lives, and out of past suffering. This bore wonderful fruit in our midst. Perhaps like me you get many requests for people to come and do a concert and receive a love offering. As a church that is musically gifted we don't need another performance. However, the message of the songs and the spirit in which they minister goes far beyond the words and music of the songs. And that is what touches lives. Tedd and Rose exude the love of Christ. I recommend them to you. Blessings in Jesus Pastor Burton Lowry - Ellsworth Assembly of God.
We would like to thank Tedd and Rose Fish for the concert which turned into a powerful service of the spirit of worship and praise and the awesome presence of the Holy Ghost. Pastor Merle Mitchell - Faith Lighthouse Assembly of God - Old Orchard, Maine Thank you, Tedd. This was the best concert you have done. The patriotic songs fit well with the Memorial Day weekend setting, and your commentary was great too. Pastor Tim Haynes...Calvary Pentecostal Church...Madison, Maine.
Just wanted to stop by real quick and drop you and your wife a note to once again say THANK YOU for coming and ministering here at Deeper Life Assembly. Your ministry was well received and God used you to speak and say things across the board to all of us; but also some things were very specific for different ones. We would surely enjoy having you again. Pastor Matt Bagley -Deeper Life Assembly, Pittsfield, Maine
I am pleased to submit this reference for Tedd Fish and his ministry of hope to the church of Jesus Christ. Very often as I travel from church to church, I meet hurting people who are seeking a touch from God to remind them of His abundant love and grace. I have personally seen Tedd accomplish this through his Celebration of Hope concerts in local churches, camp ministry, and at the New England Bible College. His engaging style and sincere desire to communicate God’s truth brings much needed refreshment to thirsty souls. I can heartily recommend Tedd Fish as someone who will bless your group and promote God’s grace through song and personal testimony. Rev. Richard Francis, President, New England Bible College
Tedd Fish has a simple message, "You can come to Jesus Christ no matter what." His style is easy going and he can disarm the most wounded and defensive person in the crowd. Tedd's ministry through song and word is an appreciated gift to the body of Christ. Pastor Rick Carver, County Road Baptist Church, New Limerick, ME
I had the privilege of meeting Tedd Fish for the first time when he ministered to my church family at the Winterport Baptist Church in January 2011. I whole-heartily share that the key word is ministered. Tedd not only shares his spiritual gift of his rich voice in song but he shares his heart with you. The words of each song coincide beautifully with his re-assuring and comforting words of hope and trusting in the Lord. His personal trials and life-lessons draw you inward and speak to the heart and draw your focus to the only One who delivers true hope which is Christ. I know personally that his message was extremely applicable to many in my congregation going through hard trials and choices. It seemed as though a hand-written letter was being delivered to each one of them. I would encourage anyone to take the opportunity to hear Tedd in concert. You will get more than just a good song or a style - you will get blessed and leave different then when you arrived. Pastor Aaron Martin, Winterport Baptist Church in Winterport, ME http://www.winterportmaine.gov/churches.php
Tedd Fish came to our church and gave a wonderful concert of songs that both lifted our spirits and challenged us to trust the Lord even more completely. His program is simple but don't let the simplicity fool you, the message is first and foremost in all that Tedd sings and shares. His love of Christ and his learning to trust come through clearly and I can say you will be blessed. Pastor John Dancer, South Somerville Baptist Church http://www.baptist411.com/
Just a note to say thanks for helping to make our Valentine’s dinner a success. As always, your music and message were enthusiastically received. I had one guest exclaim that he knew you would be good but didn’t expect you to be that good and that while you were fighting a cold. As we both know full well the pews are full of hurting people and on that night those hurts were ministered to. Thanks till next time. Pastor Dave Maguire, Lebanon/N. Berwick Baptist Church
It is with great pleasure that I can endorse Brother Tedd Fish to other churches and ministries as a vessel of honor and praise. We have become acquainted and friends since we met a couple of years ago. We have had him at our church twice and look forward to having him again soon. His compassion for souls is what I like. His music is easy to listen to and anointed. He also preaches a fine message. Your people will be blessed and certainly enjoy Brother Fish. Pastor Clyde (Peter) Campbell, Church of Faith, Skowhegan, Maine
Tedd has been a river of fresh water for the thirsty soul. His genuine love for Jesus and care for His people radiates through his words and songs, bringing hope to the hopeless and light in the darkness. Thank you Tedd for being obedient to your calling and letting God use your story to help write a new chapter in the lives of many in need of revival." Pastor Juan Saa, Lifeway Church, Derry, New Hampshire
We had Tedd Fish come and minister to us in concert back in January 2011 and I would recommend Tedd to any church. Tedd has a deep rich voice that was applied to well picked songs that ministered to our congregation. It is obvious that Tedd has a heart for ministry and a love for the Lord that motivates him to reach out to the hurting. As Tedd himself has gone through some deep waters or “weeds” as he called them, he was able to touch lives and be a great encouragement to all of us at New Hope. Likewise, as we also have a Homeless Women’s Shelter ministry, the women in the shelter who are going through deep waters themselves could relate to his message in music. I encourage you to avail yourself of Tedd’s unique ability to communicate God’s love to those who need to hear it. Pastor Tim Hunt, New Hope Evangelical Free Church, Solon, Main
I want to thank you for ministering to us last Sunday. Our people were touched by the honesty and sincerity of your message. You have a unique blend of a fine singing voice and a pastor’s heart when you speak. It is always exciting to see God work and He definitely did in that concert. I also want to thank you for the way you kept the pressure off of our sound man in the way you paused between the songs. We wish you nothing but the best. We know that God will continue to use you in a mighty way and will pray for you often. Pastor John Longaker, Fellowship Bible Church, Castleton, VT
Tedd came and ministered to us over the Christmas holidays, and we were truly blessed as he sang God's praises so beautifully. The love of God is evident in Tedd as he also shared from God's Word and how The Lord led him into this ministry. Truly inspiring! I highly recommend Tedd's ministry to you. You will be blessed. Pastor Ernie Abdelnour, Grace Assembly Of God, Salem, NH
I have known Tedd Fish for a year now and our lives have been brought together many times during this short period of time. We met at a men’s weekend retreat in Central Maine where we worked in concert together so well that the men attending had to have thought we had preplanned our programs. This amazed us both and we immediately identified it’s source; our Lord , Jesus Christ. We became fast friends and have worked together several times since. I asked my pastor to invite him to come to our church to both present his concert and preach. Both were very well received by everyone present, both young and old. He has been invited back already to present his Christmas Concert . I an certain that Tedd will be well received by your church and you will become so blessed by his presentation that you will want to have him back soon! Bill Irwin, Free Indeed Ministries, Sebec, Maine
It was a real delight to have Tedd Fish sing and preach in our Sunday services. His rich baritone voice is pleasing to the ear, and the words and music to his songs really minister to the soul. He preached in the morning, and shared his testimony in the evening. In both messages he spoke from the Word of God to confront us with the love of the Savior, Jesus Christ. I would encourage any church to have Tedd come to present his concert, which includes a good mix of gospel music that breeds hope and joy. We're looking forward to have Tedd come back again in the near future. Pastor Scott Libby - The Grace Brethren Church of Irasburg, VT
Thank you again for the recent Concert of Hope that you performed here at Columbia Street Baptist Church. We have appreciated your ministry and have enjoyed the words you shared through your story and music to present His Hope. What a powerful combination! Pastor Scott McPhedran - Columbia Street Baptist Church, Bangor, Maine
It was our privilege to have Tedd Fish in concert at our church recently. In our world, at this time, the message of hope is one that is desperately needed. Tedd provided that in his ministry to us. Down to earth, " fleshed out " faith and the sufficiency of Christ. The songs were on target and the experiences that he shared, made them even more so. Would recommend his ministry to you and your church. He comes with no demands and servant attitude. Refreshing. Pastor Sterling - Lawrence Bethel Pentecostal Church - Oakfield, Maine
I want to thank you for your ministry with us on Sunday, October 9, 2011. Your message of hope through song and testimony spoke to many hearts that night and brought encouragement to those who have been through the trenches. Some have told me since, that your ministry was just what they needed; to hear your testimony of struggles and trials and how God has given you the ability to move on by His grace and even to sing His praises. I also appreciate how you had the time to pray with me, Pastor Brian and our families. As a pastor, that was the first time that someone who has come to sing or speak called me up on stage to pray over us. Thank you! Again, your tenderness and sensitivity to the Lord and His people was genuinely felt the other night and we thank God for your ministry with us! Mark Rockwood, Senior Pastor - Berean Baptist Church - Brunswick, Maine
I want to let you know what a blessing your ministry has been to our church folks at Calvary Baptist in Brewer. The past two concerts were an uplift --just what we needed --and we look forward to you being with us in Feb. of 2012. God has given you a gift, not only with your ministry, but the message of the word to go with it. We added your ministry to the outreach of Inter-church Ministries and highly recommend it to the pastors and churchs that we interact with. God's continued blessing as you minister to our Lord. Dick Woehr - Inter-church Ministries, Interim director
We appreciated your ministry last Sunday. Several of the songs you did were new to me and I had not heard your personal testimony, so it was interesting and inspiring for me personally. I am also glad you honored the veterans. Your singing style is easy to listen to and you do a great job with your songs. Pastor Tim Haynes Calvary Pentecostal Church Madison, Maine
It was our privilege to have Tedd Fish as our concert artist for the highly successful 2011 Rumney Bible Conference " Light of the World" Christmas Celebration. Tedd's beautiful music, tender heart and clear testimony to the saving power of Christ filled the event with grace and meaning. We look forward to his ministry here again at the Conference Center. David Mexcur Ed.D Bible Conference Director Rumney New Hampshire
God is working through Tedd. His music is powerful and his words are biblical. Even though Tedd has seen many sunsets, he is able to relate to all generations. Tedd's desire is to share the gospel of Jesus Christ through music and word. He is a story teller that God is using to bring people into the body of Christ and encourage those already in Christ. I thoroughly enjoyed his humor and his depth for God's Glory. Eric May Ira Baptist Church Ira, Vermont
Thanks again for your ministry in song and word. A great blessing to many. You helped me think more deeply and clearly regarding the issues surrounding Mary's pregnancy, and the cost the couple chose in obedience to God's Plan. I used the Christmas book that you read to us and made it a power point presentation for our Christmas Eve service, so all could see the illustrations. Great stuff! God Bless. Tedd came to our church and performed his Christmas Concert for us. Performed is probably not the right word because what he does during his concert is minister to the people attending. He shares stories from his life, the heart aches from this world, and the joys of a journey with Jesus. It is obvious that this is where God wants Tedd in his walk. Ministering to people comes very naturally to this man and it was such a blessing to have him be part of our Christmas at Pathway. Kyle Gabri, Site Pastor - Pathway Vineyard - Brunswick, Maine
Thank you so much for your ministry on February 12th where you emphasized the Love of God. It was great to have you back on the same platform where you were ordained 45 years ago. Our people were encouraged by your music and stories of God's faithfulness and love that embraced you in the midst of your own personal struggles. May God bless you richly as you continue to serve Him. Roger Davis, Pastor - Calvary Baptist Church - Brewer, Maine
Thank you, Tedd! I know our people really enjoyed your ministry. It's an unusual mix of cultures, but they are always appreciative of a variety of musical styles and types of worship..as is our Lord! May you find Him faithful on every hilltop and through every valley as you seek to serve Him. Rick Francis, Pastor - North Deering Alliance Church - Portland, Maine
The concert that Tedd Fish did at our church was excellent in quality, sweet in presentation and encourageing to all who heard him. I have known Mr.Fish for over 30 years and was most happy to have him come to our church on Sunday. All of our people resoundingly want him again and we plan to do just that. The "laid back" style is truly "him, and you can tell that his excellent music comes from the heart; not from a desire to laud himself, but to glorify his Savior.
In a day when much is made of big theater type defining "entertainment" in the churches, it is so refreshing to have people like Tedd truly minister to the congregation. I cannot say enough about this man's obvious love for the Lord, AND his most excellent voice to minister with pleasantness and sincerity to us who labor day to day in the these times. Jack Daniels,Pastor - Free Baptist Church - Limerick, Maine
After your concert at our church, my grandson Logan(who is 7) wanted your newest CD in the worst way. I bought it for him. He listened to it Sunday night in his bed and then again Monday night. Tuesday after school, Logan told me he brought the CD to school so his teacher could listen to it. ( at first I was a little upset, after all I hadn't even listened to it). His teacher told him she would listen to it when she got a chance and then give it back to him. Tuesday night when he went to bed, I asked him what he was going to listen to because you don't have Tedd Fish's CD,...Logan perked right up and said, "That's ok grandma, I can sing one for you. I know the words already."..To my amazement, he proceeded to sing one of your songs ..He didn't know all the words, but most of them..Just amazing!!! A testimony from a Godly Grandmother
Thank you for sharing your heart with us! We enjoyed the music and the stories of how God has worked in your life and ministry! The "Cup of Compensation" was an encouragement. Continue to share the Good News of the gospel, for after all, that is the main thing. Pastor Harry and Joyce Straub - Hudson Baptist Church - Hudson, Maine
Thank you so much for being with us on Mother's Day. You were such a blessing to everyone there, young and old. God used you mightly to touch everyone in our congregation. We feel it was a divine appointment and for the young man who got saved, it surely was. Thank you from the bottom of all our hearts. Pastor Sam and Ruth Francis - Life Church - Bath, Maine
Tedd, it was a blessing to have you minister with us last week. Along with the offering, be assured that our prayers are with you. Also, we, at the church, are behind what the Lord is doing with the ministry that He has given you. As far as singing a duet..I would be delighted to sing with you. Pastor Gary Leet, Pastor - Lisbon Free Baptist Church - Lisbon, Maine
We first meet Tedd Fish when he appeared at our church during the fall of 2011 for a fall concert. We were so pleased that we invited him back again during the summer of 2012 for a Saturday night concert as part of our Summer "Christian Music Concerts on the Park" Series here in northern Vermont. Then, he graciously agreed to share music and a message the following morning at our regular service. His message in music and word is very uplifting and extremely powerful. We know that many lives have been touched by his willingness to share his life and his love of God. If you are or have been considering inviting Tedd to share his ministry with you, don't wait another minute. Do it now! You and all those around you will be blessed. Rev. Tim and Kathy Stetson - New Life Christian Church - West Berkshire,Vermont
Tedd Fish returned to our church for a Christmas concert. I had missed him on his first visit last year as I was doing a missionary trip. His timely presentation this past Sunday was favorably received by those of all ages. His message was relevant. His spirit was sensitive. His music was well done. I'm already looking forward to having Tedd back again. Pastor Frank Jewett - Advent Christian Church - Haverhill, Ma.
It was wonderful having you share with us once again the ministry the Lord has given you! Your warm story-telling ability coupled with your rich voice in song blend to form such an inspirational concert. I know that our folks were certainly blessed to have you share this wonderful Christmas Sing-along Concert with us. I highly recommend you and your ministry to congregations who are looking for inspiration and encouragement! Pastor Jim Culbertson - Morrill Baptist Church - Morrill , Maine
A few comments after a Sunday morning service at Ira Baptist Church:
A teen said " I liked Tedd's sermon. It was great. I am glad I came this weekend." Another teen said, "Great message. Very meaningful and relevant! " An adult who attends periodically said " Wonderful sermon. God spoke to me(us)" May the Lord continue to use your ministry to bring glory to our Lord. Nancy, Church Secretary - Ira Baptist Church - Ira , Vermont
Tedd, your ministry shows the deep thought and commitment you have to the gospel message! I feel your central spotlight on God's Celebration of Hope in that gospel message is a light whose time has come...because it has been long overdue! Your interaction with the congregation is through a warm, generous spirit who has been through not a few fires in life. I personally feel that perhaps it is God's grace, mercy and generosity that revives your soul and resonates so much in your heart...and it shows, Tedd, by just being who you are. You do not put on a show. You do not parade and promote your wonderful baritone voice, you gave all the glory to God in a very warm personal way. You retained the honor and integrity of the Worship Service. I really think people appreciate that authenticity...you know, the real thing... and that, my brother,is not only refreshing, it is the way of God. During the service I prayed that hearts would open to the love and life that God still desires for our sakes and salvation... that the Celebration of Hope will find a home in a people restored, revived, forgiven and blessed through Jesus Christ....and all darkness will be swept away...by the powerful light that shines and still shines, for He is the Love of God for us. From a humble heart, thank you for sharing the gospel. Godspeed Dave Walz, Pastor - 1st Congregational Church - North Anson, Maine
Tedd Thank you so much for coming to be with us at I Care Ministries in Millinocket. It was a pleasure to have you share your God given gifts of music and preaching with us. Your ministry impacted many lives and was a great encouragement to me as well. I will highly recommend your ministry to any church or pastor. The message of hope and healing that comes from sharing your own hurts connects well with your audience. It is real and relevant in today's church world. It seems that everywhere I go people are struggling and looking for a word of hope and a prayer encouragement. You do both very professionally and compassionately. May God continue to open new doors of opportunity as you follow His leading and faithfully us your gifts to glorify Him. One observation that I had was that many people who listened to you on Saturday, also came to both services on Sunday to hear you again and again. Keep touching lives for Jesus my friend. You may use my name for reference with anyone. 207-447-1603 Herschel HAFFORD,Pastor - Millinocket, Me.
Thank you, Tedd, for including us in your ministry. We greatly appreciated the timely message of hope that you shared with us. There have been many comments on the message you shared through your testimony, songs, and scriptures. They are looking forward to having you in the future. Scott Mc Phedran, Pastor - First Baptist Church - South Berwick, Maine
Tedd shared with the folks of the West Bowdoin Baptist Church on Sunday, August 21, 2016. This was a very special Sunday with the church celebrating “Homecoming.” It was made even more special with the witness, testimony, and music of Tedd Fish. His voice and honesty of testimony gave all of us a sense of the presence of the Holy Spirit. His wife, Rose, gave her testimony and they joined together in the affirmation of what the Lord has done for them and can do for all who have faith. I recommend to any church who wants a program of music that touches the heart with many blessings to invite them to share. Rev. James Lufkin - West Bowdoin Baptist Church - West Bowdoin, Maine God bless you as you continue your ministry. It was our pleasure to have you with us. Your music and testimony were a blessing. We pray for God's continued blesssings on your life and ministry.Thank you for your time to minister to us. We look forward to having you come visit us again. Pastor John Bartz and Joe Horton - New Beginnings Community Church - Palm City, Florida
Tedd Fish is truly a great man of God. He has an incredible heart of compassion and brings the wonderful message of HOPE to his audience through his inspired music ministry. His music and his heart will surely touch and inspire his listeners. If you are are looking for a way to connect with people who love music, especially Southern Gospel, I would strongly encourage you to invite Tedd to be a guest. As a Lead Pastor, I realize sometimes I don't invite guests simply because I do not have the time or energy to host or entertain them. I know that may sound terrible to some out there, excuse my transparency. Tedd is VERY easy going, non-assuming and the most low maintenance musician I have ever worked with. You will blessed just spending a few minutes with him. I highly recommend without any reservations....Tedd Fish Craig Ripotella, Pastor - Centerpoint Community Church - Waterville, Me.
Tedd, It was so nice to meet you and your wife. Thanks you so much for sharing those inspiring songs with us at our pastors banquet. I heard many compliments about your giftedness with singing, and particularly your skill at expressing the songs in such a way that it is obvious that you think about what you are singing about, not just combining words with a tune. Your music comes across as heart-felt, and we appreciate that. May God continue to bless you two as you continue to serve Him. Gene - Gideon Banquet, Lewiston, Maine
Tedd brings a message of Jesus' love and Christian fellowship with his music. God has blessed Tedd with a gift and he shares it with all. May God continue to bless Tedd and Rose as they share the message of Hope in word and song. Pastor John and Debra Walsh at the Clifton United Baptist Church in Clifton, Maine
Tedd and Rose, Thank you so much for your wonderful ministry to our church family this past Friday night! Our folks here at TnT Bible Church were greatly blessed by your powerful testimonies, awesome and encouraging singing, and your servant’s hearts! You both have such tender spirits and I’ve received nothing less than wonderful feedback from our church family! God was glorified and the name of Jesus Christ was highly exalted that Friday night! There is no doubt in this pastor’s mind that you both put a smile on God’s face last Friday night! May God richly bless you both in your ministry and all you do for our Great God and Savior! We love you both and look forward to having you back with us again! Love and God Bless, Greg Ferrell - TnT Bible Church, Topsham, Maine
It was an honor to have Tedd and Rose Fish with us this past Sunday. They have a powerful anointing through their music and life testimonies, Always keep them in your prayers as they travel to minister from church to church to uplift the Body of Christ and that God will richly bless them in a mighty way. Remember to always "Celebrate the Hope" that we have in Jesus. If you would like to follow them and keep up to date on how they are doing, check them out on Facebook @ Celebrate Hope Ministry. Pastor Frank and Tammy Randall - Patten Pentecostal Church, Patten, Maine
"I love Tedd's deep Baritone voice and he and Rose always have a message of hope to share. It's more than entertainment, it's encouragement. One man told me he was especially touched by their ministry." So thankful for having them with us. Pastor Don Booker - Bradford Baptist Church, Bradford, Maine
