Joanna Fruhauf Recommendations

On Topic

I've known Joanna for eight years but from the minute I met her, I had the feeling that we were friends forever. We have an annual women's conference every January, and we ask her and the Gracious Vine Band to help us praise the Lord and learn from his word. She has a knowledge of the bible that she translates into real life application. She is warm and genuine, has a sense of humor, but it serious about her love for the Lord. She serves him with all her heart.

Mary Ann Malcolm - Women's Ministry Director

We recently had Joanna Fruhauf come to our church to lead a 1-day women's retreat. Every lady that attended was truly blessed by Joanna as she led us in worship and shared messages from the life of Simon Peter.
Any group would truly enjoy her gifting as a musician and speaker.

Joanna's book "Come and Sit for a While" is relatable and down-to-earth, yet biblical and uplifting. I enjoyed Joanna's sense of humor as well as her vast knowledge of the Bible. Her devotions connected deep Scriptural truths to everyday life situations.

Thoroughly enjoyed the afternoon retreat. Joanna's presentation brought the message to life. Her personal stories weaved within the biblical scripture message, the worship songs and engaging break-out sessions were quite impactful, leaving us with much to ponder and reflect on. Looking forward to hearing Joanna again.

Joanna was delightful and well prepared. She handled the difficult topic of “A Biblical response to abortion,” gracefully yet powerfully. As the event coordinator I was pleased with her availability to speak with guests before and after her talk answering questions and listening to them. She also kept on schedule allowing us to continue our event on time. I will be glad to invite her again to a Keswick Girl Talk Event.

Joanna Fruhauf is a gifted woman of God who brought our Triple Header Christian Concert to another level. She speaks so eloquently from her heart and connects with her audience in a way that leaves an impact on our hearts and minds. Her band is amazing and truly was the glue of our fundraising event. I believe Joanna prepared the hearts of our audience, setting the table for me to present a financial challenge to our guests to give generously to our ministry. Thank you Joanna for offering your time and talent to serve God and for blessing us so tremendously.

K-LOVE Radio has been blessed to partner with Joanna for 3 of our annual Single Moms Events in 2015, 2016 and 2017. Working with Joanna has been such a breath of fresh air every time. Her heart for the Lord shines through her personality and in everything she does. Through the events we've worked together on, Joanna has brought hope, encouragement and inspiration to women. Women have been able to see and hear Jesus through Joanna's music and spoken word and we have truly loved working with her!

Awesome woman of God, diligent and steadfast. She knows the Word and history, love listening to her wisdom and input. The members of her worship band, "Gracious Vine", are inspiring and really are gracious. They played a wonderful celebration night for our retreat, it was the icing!

I knew Joanna Fruhauf as a church worship leader years ago. She was, and is, a highly competent and inspiring spiritual leader, devoted to Jesus who she praises and glorifies in word and in song, while seeking to save souls and lead people into a deeper relationship with their Savior. You will assuredly be blessed by the Christ-centered ministry of Gracious Vine.

Joanna Fruhauf is a gifted speaker and powerful worship leader. Her heart's desire is to empower others to be equipped, engaged and inspired to draw close to the Lord. Her vehicle for that expression shines through her music, lyrics and biblical content. Joanna is spiritually confident saturated with compassion bathed in deep anointing of the Holy Spirit! Gracious Vine as a whole will lift anyone out of their chair with hand's lifted high to heaven. Their music, both original and familiar, will have you worshiping and praising the Lord!
