We are pleased to share with you some of the many comments, letters, and references from those with whom we have worked.

Dear John, It was my blessing and joy to see you again. While many things change, I'm delighted to say you have not. You are still a humble gentleman who sings songs that "matter" and minister in the time you are granted. You come with my highest recommendation and regards to all.

Dr. Jim Palmer, Senior Pastor, Miles Road Baptist Church

We appreciate your music, with both music at the right volume and understandable words telling the Story of Jesus. I gladly endorse you; feel free to use me as a reference.

Everyone needs to hear John Rutland's music. You need to hear him because he lives his music, because he writes most of his music and he loves the Lord and His church. I have known John for 21+ years as his pastor. He is a consistent believer and he and his family are faithful members of Hagood Avenue Baptist Church. John believes the Bible as the Word of God and he lives it daily. When he's not in concert, he is present in worship and is a member of our church's Praise Team. He is a Godly husband, father and grandfather. His wife, Kim, is a great supporter of his calling to sing the message of Jesus. Whatever John does will have the hand of God upon it. I give him my highest recommendation. He is an awesome ambassador for Christ. God bless you as you consider this Godly servant of Jesus in ministry.

Together in Christ,

Kenneth Catoe

John Rutland and Mark Griffitt, also known as “Loose Stone,” penned “Come Home America,” which became the title cut on their most recent recording project in 2008. The song has received a lot of airtime nationally on Christian music radio stations and will be ... for use by regional, state and local coordinators during National Day of Prayer events."
