Sunday, November 10, 2019 - Worship Concert
Thanks to the Lord and to everyone who came out to spend some time in worship and sharing together in my inaugural worship/concert. Special thanks to Warm Beach Senior Community for hosting, and for a great time Sunday morning in worship, as well.
Such a highlight to have family members join me, my wife Carrie, son, Mason, daughter, Lyndee, and sister Carmen, and to be able to present my Dad with a framed copy of the lyrics to the song that he was inspired to write nearly 4 years ago.
Glory to God for His work, and for the privilege to serve this special group of people.
Hello, and thank you so much for visiting His Harmonies Music. This site exists to recognize that everything we have comes from God, our Creator, and that music and harmony, in particular, are one of His great gifts to us. Hence, the name, His Harmonies Music.
As I reflect back on my 50+ years of life, I have come to realize that I have always had a deep appreciation for harmony. Harmony in relationships, harmony in God’s Creation, and harmony in music. My heart’s desire for His Harmonies Music, is that it will be used to glorify the Lord Jesus Christ, and build up His Body, by sharing music, worship ministry coaching or counsel, encouragement, life and ministry experiences, and resources that help to promote His harmonies in the lives of others.
So, feel free to take a look around and I pray that what you find here is a blessing to you. Thanks again for stopping by, and I’d love to hear from you!

Colossians 1:16 – (VOICE)
It was by Him that everything was created: the heavens, the earth, all things within and upon them, all things seen and unseen, thrones and dominions, spiritual powers and authorities. Every detail was crafted through His design, by His own hands, and for His purposes.
Romans 11:36 – (VOICE)
For all that exists originates in Him, comes through Him, and is moving toward Him; so give Him the glory forever. Amen.
Romans 15:5 – (NLT)
May God, who gives this patience and encouragement, help you live in complete harmony with each other, as is fitting for followers of Christ Jesus.
Psalm 33 – (VOICE)
Release your heart’s joy in sweet music to the Eternal.
When the upright passionately sing glory-filled songs to Him, everything is in its right place.
Worship the Eternal with your instruments, strings offering their praise;
write awe-filled songs to Him on the 10-stringed harp.
Sing to Him a new song;
play each the best way you can,
and don’t be afraid to be bold with your joyful feelings.
For the word of the Eternal is perfect and true;
His actions are always faithful and right.

Testimonials for Derin
Derin has a heart for God, heart for people and worships with humility. When Derin leads, it is with a heart that echos the Apostle Paul's, "I want to know Christ---yes, the power of His resurrection..." (from Philippians 3:10a). Whether it's a small group, or hundreds of people, he sings and leads out of a grateful and glad heart that helps people respond to Jesus, saying, "Yes, I too want to know the power of Christ's resurrection!"
Derin Brooks is a gifted Worship Leader who loves God and His church. This love pours out both in worship leading and in song writing. The waters of his heart run deep and he challenges God's people to higher ground both in worship and the Christian life.
What I appreciate most about Derin’s leadership is that he does not seek attention for himself, but he creates an environment of worship in the sanctuary for all to honor and praise Jesus Christ. It is easy to engage in worship, feel the presence of God, and know that joy and peace will be the result.
<p dir="auto">These things I know to be 100% true from my friendship with Derin. He loves Jesus which is evident in his worship leading, in his life and family. Not only does Pastor Derin love to worship but he can effectively and passionately lead others to do the same. This is a unique gift and Derin rightly uses it to glorify God. It's something to be admired and emulated by all within his influence. Lastly, I love that Pastor Derin is a natural teacher/mentor/friend. He is easy to relate to, learn from and follow because he leads, serves and loves through example. Thank you Pastor Derin. May God richly bless your ministry.</p>
Derin and I grew up together. Being a novice father, I didn't always do it right in my role. But with love and forgiveness we made the journey successfully to this present point. I am very proud of my son who has weathered the storm of life with its ups and downs. As I contemplate this new step in his journey I am excited with the possibilities of where it might lead. My prayer is that God will show himself strong as Derin relies on him in this new chapter of the journey of life. I believe in you son! I love you, DAD
I have known Derin for more years than I can remember. His heart for the Lord is expressed in his smile, his conversation, his hug and of course his WONDERFUL expression of music! Having played in several worship settings with him, he is the rare individual who can both share Jesus in his playing, and raise everyone’s level of ability. I have no idea where the Lord will lead Derin on this new journey of sharing his stories and his music, but I am sure that it will be something every individual will learn from – and put a smile on all of our faces! Blessings brother -- until the next time I get to share music with you, I am so happy to call you a friend in Jesus!
We have known, seen, and heard Derin’s music and heart for the last three years. No one is more passionate and sincere!
