For more than thirty-five years, Mike and Faye Speck have been singing and ministering to the body of Christ. Over 2000 churches, large and small, of various denominations have personally experienced their compelling presentation of the gospel. As an ordained minister and former pastor, Mike has a deep love for the local church. He has served on the staff of six different churches throughout Michigan, Tennessee, Oklahoma, Arkansas, and Virginia; most recently serving as minister of music for the late Dr. Jerry Falwell at Thomas Road Baptist Church, Lynchburg, Virginia. (1999-2000) During the eighties and nineties, as a result of their city wide evangelistic crusades, Mike and Faye began writing and arranging music for church choirs. Today, thousands of churches regularly use their choral collections. They have arranged and compiled twenty-three different choral books. Twelve of these collections are published by Word Music, of which many are the top sellers for their company. They are currently partnered with Lillenas Music, a subsidiary of the Nazarene Publishing House and have continued to be one of the top sellers in the choral music industry. Mike and Faye make their home in Lebanon, Tennessee, a suburb of Nashville. Over the years, The Specks have had the privilege of traveling with many different vocalists as part of the Mike Speck Ministries team. These personalities and varied life experiences have given a refreshing and unique style to their concert appearances. Involving the congregation, while utilizing the church choir and church musicians, The Specks offer an opportunity for those attending to be blessed and join in worship.

"My desire is to touch a person in the deepest part of their heart...to somehow cause an emotional stirring that results in an intellectual choice to embrace the claims of Christ. I am convinced that lyric set to music can reach the innermost recesses of a person's soul. The songs we sing and those I have arranged for the choir are for this purpose. Although our methods and style may change, man's basic need is still the same: to experience and know the Heavenly Father in intimate fellowship. I believe Christ is our only door, the only way to experience and know the love of God. The Specks are humble vessels for God to use as He chooses. It is our prayer that He would let us open the door of many hearts that He might accomplish His healing, His mending and His cleansing."
