DICK ANTHONY Gospel Musician / Composer

"Don Wyrtzen has a rare combination of creative musicianship and background in worship and theological studies. His ‘Praise Piano Concerts’ relate biblical themes to what’s happening musically in today’s culture. I have followed Don’s ministry for years and can recommend him to your church ministry unreservedly."
DR. ROBERT JEFFRESS Senior Pastor, First Baptist Church, Dallas

My passion is to communicate truth from scripture and from music that will touch and transform people's lives.

Don Wyrtzen received an early start in music, radio, and television while associated with his father, Dr. Jack Wyrtzen, founder of Word of Life International. A graduate of The Moody Bible Institute, The King’s College, and Dallas Theological Seminary, he did graduate work in music at the University of North Texas.

Don has either arranged or composed over 400 anthems and sacred songs, including such favorites as Yesterday, Today, and Tomorrow; Love Was When; I’ll Praise Your Name, Lord; and Finally Home. In 1981, he received a Dove Award from the Gospel Music Association for his musical, “The Love Story.” To date, over two million of his musicals and cantatas have been sold.

He has also arranged, orchestrated, and conducted for such major artists as Steven Curtis Chapman, 4-Him, Michael Card, Al Denson, Glad, Steve Green, Carman, Sandi Patti, the Gaither Vocal Band, Wayne Watson, First Call, and Andy Williams. His devotional book, A Musician Looks at the Psalms, received the Gold Medallion Award in 1989 from the Evangelical Christian Publishers Association.

In the last few years, Mr. Wyrtzen has become recognized as one of the leading musicians and statesmen in Christian music. He has lectured on church music, worship, and hymnology in many of the leading Christian colleges, universities, and seminaries. Referred to as a “poet of the piano,” he is known for his virtuoso playing and improvisational ability. He has numerous recordings and keyboard books available.

Don and his wife Karen (below) reside in Mansfield, Texas where he is president of Don Wyrtzen Music Ministries. They have two grown children: a son, D.J., and a daughter, Kathleen.
