Tate Music Group (TMG) Forever Holy CD
Release date March 5th, 2013
The style of their latest project is modern contemporary rock with soulful undertones and catchy melodies. The Forever Holy CD was lyrically inspired by life’s challenges and seeing how God remains faithful through brokenness, how His grace covers us with His unconditional love. Through it all comes 12 amazing songs of restoration, healing, hope and forgiveness. Songs that are prophetic, of being thankful, of trust, of adoration to the One we love forever because of who He is.
The majority of BETH's songs are written on a one on One basis to their Lord & Savior, Jesus Christ for bringing a deeper and closer relationship with Him. This CD is prayerfully designed to touch the Heart of God because He is Holy and He desires for us to be Holy – set apart only for Him.
While working to complete this project, BETH continues to minister in local churchs and performing at events. They have been introducing their new material and receiving very favorable interest.
BETH's passion and anointing is real. They completely pour themselves out to God and to the people through transparent worship as they usher in the Presence of God with powerful Praise & Worship music. One can feel the heart beat of God through their expressive worship and they have an anointing that impacts and encourages congregations to get closer to their Maker. Nothing superficial about BETH - the real deal!
ISOM Graduates since October 2010 through Crossroad Christian Center which now is called New Creation Church, Banning CA. ISOM was challenging, however, it is BETH's desire to be well equiped for their ministry as stated in 2 Timothy 3:16-17 NKJV ~ "All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work".
HOW DOES BETH MINISTER
BETH is not restricted to one way of ministering in music. They perform intimately with acoustic guitar & vocals or play to music tracks or with a band. The event can consist of BETH’s own songs or familiar Praise & Worship songs or any combination. However BETH ministers in music, the Sprit of God always shows up at the events and the throne room of Heaven opens and fills the atmosphere with energetic praise and the reverence of intimate worship.

The Rock Church
From 2003 to 2007 BETH (Dana & Susanne) served on an awesome Praise & Worship team at The Rock Church & World Outreach Center in San Bernardino, CA and had the opportunity to be a part of The Rock CD release "You're My Everything" 2007 written by Worhip Leader Pastor David and written by the Praise Team of great singers & songwriters. Dana served on the team as rhythm and lead guitarist and Susanne served as lead & back up mic singer and part of the choir singers. They were involved with many major church events and especially the Christmas specials performing songs yearly from their Christmas CD “Welcome To Bethlehem” (a favorite of Pastor Jim's) and serving for other music activites besides the Music Ministry.
During this time BETH played at other churches, youth ministries and outside the walls events. BETH was also recording and writing many new songs for their "Forever Holy" CD project. Having the divine opportunity of serving at The Rock in a variety of music styles since 2000 had absolutley cultivated and contributed to where BETH is today. There will always be a connection to The Rock because their roots were planted and had grown tremendously from the very church where Dana was SAVED and Susanne re-dedicated her life back to JESUS in 1999!. The Rock Church truly loves and truly cares for the needs of the local community. The senior Pastor's Jim & Deborah have such passion to save thousands of souls through their amazing teaching and preaching from the Holy Word of God - and no female preacher can preach like Pastor Deborah, wow! The Rock Church has contributed in developing who Dana & Susanne are in Christ to where they are today!
YOUTH WORSHIP LEADERS
From 2000-2003 Dana & Susanne (D&S) served as Worship Leaders in the Youth Ministry at The Rock Church. The amazing Youth Pastor's Eddie & Dawna knew how to absolutely connect with hundreds of teens for this generation which D&S had learned so much from. They had the opportunity of being radical in leading the youth in corporate worship by getting them revved up and excited for praise & worship. They encouraged the youth to pour out their hearts before God and the lifting of Holy hands when it came to the intamcy and the reverence of worship. Of this time, Susanne says, "It was an awesome experience to see how the youth worshipped with such transparent expressions and how tender their hearts were when they entered into the Presence of God". D&S adored and fell in love with the Youth Praise & Worship team by helping the talented youth to develop their music and singing skills. Having three years of planting seeds into the youth and making an impact on their lives for enternity is not taken lightly, especially when it comes to making a difference for the future generations. Susanne says "I love the youth in that you can't be phony around them - they see right through you - so be REAL". D&S was extremely involved with many music activities within The Rock Church while recording, writing, and ministering at local churches and youth events.

Susanne and Dana Elston have extensive time in many recording environments. They have recorded many songs and expect to release many new CD's for years to come to reach the nations. They have been a song-writing team for many years and they have written songs previous before being saved.
BETH's ministry began in 1999 shortly after Dana was "saved" and Susanne "re-dedicated her life back to Jesus" and gave their lives completely over to Christ. God saved them from writing and playing secular music in the ways of the world and replaced His music with an amazing band of awesome Christian Singers and Christian Musicians playing music from BETH's "Sheep With Defects" CD which consist of edgy Alternative Rock music and lyric content of songs out side the walls. Through playing gigs and performances for over a year, godly people would minister to BETH that they have signifacant spiritual meaning; House, 2nd letter of the Hebrew alphabet, Psalm 119:9-16 for Intructions, Jesus is second in the Trinity and Jesus also means House where His Spirit dwells within our temples of worship, Hallelujah! Since then, BETH has grown enourmously in the ways of Jesus Christ and Praise & Worship has never been so life changing for BETH as it has today - Passion for Christ.
While BETH today has been lead to contemporary melodic rock with an edge
And their music is mellower, doesn't mean that they won't rock out
When opportunity allows! Change is good!
