Alan Bessette

Alan Bessette; a guitarist, singer, and songwriter; has been leading worship in the Boston area and more recently in the southern New Hampshire area for many years. He has recently formed Running Streams Music for the purpose of producing and publishing high quality Christian music.

Alan was amazed when, in the mid 1970’s, he experienced Jesus’ love in a powerful, personal way after being prayed with for the baptism in the Holy Spirit at a prayer meeting at the Cenacle Retreat Center in Brighton, MA. His life has never been the same since. Although he had been making his living as a guitarist and singer in nightclubs he soon found that he “couldn’t sing those songs anymore”. Hoping that he could help others experience this wonderful presence of God, he chose instead to use his musical gifts in a new way, a way that would honor Him. To that end he has helped to lead worship in a variety of settings over the years including masses, healing services, retreats, Christian coffee houses, and conferences in Catholic, Protestant, and Orthodox venues both as an individual performer and as a member of the group Easter Children.

From 1998 to 2013 he helped to lead worship at Fr. Tom DiLorenzo’s services at the Espousal Retreat House in Waltham, MA, and at Holy Rosary parish in Winthrop, MA. This is the same Fr. Tom whose Catholic, evangelical, and bible based preaching ministry, “In Season and Out of Season”, is heard on over 15 radio stations nationwide.

Alan and his wife, Nancy, live in the southern New Hampshire region. He regularly provides music as a cantor and guitarist at Christ the King parish in Concord, NH and continues to travel down to Boston for the monthly healing service at the Basilica of Our Lady Of Perpetual Help, better known as Mission Church, in Roxbury, MA.
