Dr Steve H Hakes has worked with the church in various ways. Back in the eighties he ran lectures and distance learningnowadays more formally through mdtc.eu. His theology doctorate was from one the world’s largest universities, UNISA (Pretoria). He once ran a biblically based Christian dating agencyfor life! He has enjoyed a varied experience of denominations (Anglican, Baptist, Brethren, Charismatic, Greek Orthodox, Methodist, Nazarene, Pentecostal, Restoration, Roman Catholic, Salvation Army)—he won’t call them ‘churches’ as globally there is but one church, fragmented into networks, and represented by local churches.

From early childhood songs have mattered to him, especially since he became a Christian. Over the years disenchantment crept into his singing, and he seeks through this site to re-enchant Christian songs. He now has a book entitled Singing’s Gone Global: exploring Christian songs.
