Each member of the Music Department at Maranatha Baptist University has profited from the Christian testimony and musical influence of Dr. Dwight Gustafson. Many of us have had the wonderful opportunity to study with him, to play under his direction, to receive his wise counsel, to perform his music, and even to work alongside him.
This past year we have programmed Camp Meeting Medley; Laudes Domini; Spirit of God, Descend Upon My Heart; When I Survey; and Psalm 150. We are very grateful for the sacrifices of Dr. Gustafson to give us a body of musical literature that combines textual sensitivity and appropriate Christian experience. His musical leadership and spiritual integrity are without peer. He will be missed.
The MBU family and all who love conservative Christian music praise the Lord for Dr. Gustafson’s great contribution. – Dr. Marty Marriott
