"Tony Chuang models a zeal for evangelism that shines a bright light not only to the world but also to church. As I have gotten to know him, I see that his heart is indicative of the Apostle Paul's heart for the lost, "I do it all for the sake of the gospel, that I may share in its blessings with them." (1 Corinthians 9:23) The Lord is being glorified as I have seen Tony enjoy gospel blessings and preach gospel blessings to share in it with the unreached."

- Jason Lock (Senior Pastor, Harvest Bible Chapel - York Region, Markham, ON, Canada)

“I've seen Esther as a concerto soloist, worship leader, fellowship leader which revealed her deep passion and exuberance magnificently. Esther is an inspiring musician who encourages people to love and serve God and His people… She is a beautiful instrument of God!"

- Sandra Shen (Concert Pianist/Faculty of Brevard Music Center, Brevard, NC, United States, www.SandraShen.com)

“Tony is a passionate preacher. We were all convinced of his convictions and challenged to make them our own.”

- Brian Talbot (Senior Pastor, Greenfield Park Baptist Church, Montréal, QC, Canada)

“We would recommend this for anybody’s church. It would be really uplifting, helpful, encouraging. It’s given us tools to continue to develop our worship ministries. And if you ever have the opportunity to have Esther and Tony join you, jump at the chance. You’ll be glad you did.”

- Brian and Susan Talbot (Senior Pastor and Wife, Greenfield Park Baptist Church, Montréal, QC, Canada)

“Esther's concerts are a gift to God's people.  Her music transports hearts to a place of worship in God's presence that is difficult to arrive at on one's own. As her fingertips delicately caress the keys and then gracefully, meaningfully arch high above them, head bowed in earnest worship, you sense the grace, and beauty, and mercy of the Lord! In breathtaking contrast, the passionate pounding of the scales with every ounce of her strength combined with dramatic body language portrays the majesty, the grandeur, the awesome holiness of God!  I am always moved to tears, forgetting Esther, as the Lord takes center stage and I stand in awe of His loving character manifested in the words of the songs she has so powerfully sung in total abandonment to Him. Truly, I am lost in worship. Esther's testimony of God's faithfulness to her, as well as her powerpoints of trips overseas, make her concerts unique, interactive, and the reason that I will stop everything and go to them!”

- Nellie Fuder, Chicago, IL, USA

 

“Esther, you play this arrangement of How Great Thou Art/Great is Thy Faithfulness so musically and artistically… and your technical ability is outstanding. I could not interpret this better myself and I wrote it! And you sing well too!... You are one talented woman.”

- Mark Hayes (Composer/Arranger, Kansas City, MO, USA, www.MarkHayes.com)

 

"Esther is a uniquely inspired pianist.”

- Ann Schein (Concert Pianist/Faculty at Aspen Music Festival and School, Aspen, CO, USA, www.AnnSchein.com)

 

“Esther is an unusually talented singer and pianist, with a richness of expression in her voice and in her playing that grabs the attention of any audience.  She is also a dedicated, intelligent, and purposeful believer in Jesus whose aim is to exalt the Lord and not herself, touching hearts and lives through His anointing upon her music—something she has now done in many locations around the world.  Esther is a person of character, a gifted musician, and a genuine worshipper of Jesus Christ.”

- Chris White (Evangelist/Missionary at New Testament Missionary Fellowship, New York, NY, USA)

 

“Esther combines an obvious passion for the Lord with great piano artistry. Those who attend her concerts will come away having heard excellent music-making, but more than that, will be challenged to know God more deeply.”

- Dr. Cynthia Uitermarkt (Former Chair of the Music Department of Moody Bible Institute, Chicago, IL, USA)

 

"I felt like I was at the presence of royalty and that Esther brought me to the presence of the King."

- Anonymous

 

"Esther's praise leading at my church was incredibly powerful and amazing where people experienced God's living presence and His empowerment. There is no doubt that her musical gifts both in singing and piano are in professional level and result of highly trained works. Most of all, her praise and music ministry is very distinguishable in that her own spirituality is directly translated into her songs. She is more than a musician or performer but God's living musical instrument for His kingdom. Her music is nothing but an expression of her love for Jesus."

- Jin Oh (Pastor, Cornerstone Church, Hasbrouck Heights, NJ, USA)

 

“Esther is a gifted musician who possesses the unique ability to blend classical, traditional and contemporary worship music. By connecting her personal journey of faith with her music, Esther creates an environment which gives testimony to the goodness and grace of the Lord Jesus Christ.”

- Terry Timm (Pastor, Christ Community Church of the South Hills, Pittsburgh, PA, USA)

 

"When Esther leads worship I am drawn to the Lord in a profound way. God has gifted her in a special way."

- Dr. Bill Thrasher (Author/Speaker/Professor, Moody Theological Seminary, Chicago, IL, USA, www.victoriouspraying.com)

 

“Esther Shin Chuang is truly unique among sacred artists. She is a first-rate pianist, with a fully-trained technique well able to handle the largest and most-difficult pieces in the Classical repertory, and her enjoyment in sharing these masterworks with her diverse audiences is truly infectious. But above all, Esther's heart is focused upon her Lord and Savior. She is committed to bringing the light and salvation of Jesus Christ to musicians and people from all nationalities and walks of life, and the power of God clearly shows through whenever she leads people in singing praises to Him.”

- Scott Griffin (Former Pianist at Moody Church/Concert Pianist of Captivating Keyboards, Chicago, IL, USA)

“Esther’s giftedness with music and her heart for the Lord brought our church into the worship of our great Savior! And, if pianos had a voice of their own, ours would have been shouting for joy at the opportunity to be used as it was."

- Fred & Grace Burtelson (Pastor and Wife, Grace Fellowship Church, Woodstock, NY, USA

 

"Esther becomes a servant to God's leading through music. Esther is very impressive in concert mode, her skills and talents are surpassed by few, but the most significant treasure of her music is her submission to God's leading in the worship setting. To take the mechanical out of music and replace it with a special anointing is only because she is keenly aware of God's leading in worship. One of Esther's greatest spiritual gifts is the discerning ability to know what honors God and lifts Him up in a worship service… so that all men are drawn to Him."

- Sammy Kicklighter (Music and Worship Director, First Baptist Church, Brevard, NC, USA)

 

“Your ministry to us was a part of letting the word of Christ dwell in us richly, teaching and admonishing one another in all wisdom, singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, with thankfulness in our hearts to God (Col. 3:16), and we thank God for that.”

- Rev. Nathan Joy James (Pastor, Calvary Memorial Church, Racine, WI, USA)

 

“Esther is very committed to the Lord through her music. Her travels around the world have brought the Lord to people in a way they may not have heard before. I will always look forward to a Concert from her as looking to new inspiration.”

- Cheryl Lockwood (In Focus/Moody Church, Chicago, IL, USA)

 

“The music you [Esther] played flowed directly into the worship of our hearts, and it also directed us in our prayers. I believe God has really given you a gift not only of music, but of worshipping and of leading others into the presence of God.”

- Julie Castor (Violin Faculty/Program Director, The Geneva Conservatory of Music, New York, NY, USA)

"I was challenged to put God first in my life as I take on activities in college. I also really appreciate the insights from the dating seminar." 

- G. (High School Student, Elk Grove Village, IL, USA)

"You provide us with the most interesting, funny, and deep sermons. I love listening to your jokes and different words of wisdom in store."

- R. (High School Student, Elk Grove Village, IL, USA)

"Honestly, I was very moved when I heard your testimony because it is something that I can kind of relate to. It is easily applicable to my life."

- S. (High School Student, Elk Grove Village, IL, USA)

"I really love the way you preach. You are also so funny. Thank you for letting me become closer with God and giving me more knowledge about the Gospel. I have learned many more this retreat because of you!" 

- A. K. (High School Student, Elk Grove Village, IL, USA)

"You are truly such an inspirational motivator and anyone can see your love for God by the way you carry yourself and treat other people." 

- H. J. (High School Student, Elk Grove Village, IL, USA)

「智超的信息分享充滿了對主的愛與熱情,也反映在他對人的關懷和興趣, 他渴望人能夠認識耶穌的愛和救贖。他是年輕一代傳道人中少數早早就經歷生命的挫折,但沒有減損他對傳揚基督福音的心志!他和Esther今年結婚, 他和Esther的音樂、敬拜的恩賜搭配一起,我深信會帶人許多人生命中建造!」

"Tony's messages are filled with love and passion for the Lord, and reflects his care and interest in people; he yearns for people to know more of Jesus' love and salvation. He is among few young preachers of this generation who has faced the trials of life, but this did not decrease his resolve to proclaim the Gospel of Christ! They were married this year. Combined with Esther's music/worship, I'm deeply convinced that they will edify and build up a multitude of lives!"

- 王睿[台灣學園傳道會會長] [Stephen Wang (National Leader, Taiwan Campus Crusade for Christ, Taipei, Taiwan)]

"Tony and Esther's Ministry is just as the Acts 10:44 'While Peter was still speaking these words, the Holy Spirit came on all who heard the message.' Tony preaches with great passion and Esther leads worship and sings with the anointing of the Holy Spirit, resulting in the salvation of many souls, changed lives, and great miraculous signs."

"Esther, Your voice is anointed."

- Pastor (Kampala, Uganda)

 

“The true test of a great communicator through music is when children can easily fall in love with their music. My two daughter Lulu and Amani are great lovers of Esther and her music. They fondly sing along to tunes of ‘One step at a time” and much more. Lulu has also found her inspiration and desire to play the piano from contact with Esther at an early age. God Bless you for your service to God and people through your Music."

- Tobbias Ngala (Senior Pastor, Trinity Chapel Mombasa, Mombasa, Kenya)

"Tony Chuang, you recently visited us and spoke in a way that the message was etched in our hearts. Speaking from the passage in Jeremiah 29:11, and sharing from your Life story, we could easily resonate with your life experiences and be drawn to faith. My experience is that Tony wasn’t just preaching, but has had a taste of what he was preaching. God bless your work brother."

- Tobbias Ngala (Senior Pastor, Trinity Chapel Mombasa, Mombasa, Kenya)
