Cheryl Bear's self titled CD

A new contemporary First Nations Christian Worship CD by a Native American worship leader and recording artist.

This CD was a healing for Cheryl. At the time this CD came out she and her husband Randy were pastoring the Street Church, The Downtown Eastside Foursquare Church in Vancouver, BC, Canada.

This neighbourhood is known as the poorest neighbourhood in all of Canada.

There are many First Nations living in the Eastside of Vancouver.

This CD came out of Street Church. A place where the people are as real as they get. We went there to change the world and instead found that it changed us. During the writing of this CD, and Cheryl was also attending Regent College.


Drum Doxology from my time at Street Church and Regent College. Every morning during Theology I with Dr. J.I. Packer, we would sing the Doxology and I looked forward that class, that prof and that song. One day I got a tune in my head and out came the Doxology part of it.

Then, I thought we needed to IndigenIZE this song for our First Nations people and eventually it came together.

One day I was heading out the door when a chant popped into my head. I sang it a few times and knew it would disappear in my short memory so I saved it on our answering machine.
Later my family listened to it and we decided that it was a "good one", and we added the music and Graham Ord added his magic, (his magical musicial stylings) and it turned out better than we had ever imagined! Thanks to Jamie Sitar (mastering) for bringing the drums to life. I truly believe Creator gave me this chant.

Creator, Father
... this song came from my desire to help our people understand the Creator Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Trinitarian theology is beautiful, we see the harmony in the Trinity and we can and are beckoned to join this holy dance.

Again, this song tells our people that Jesus reveals Creator Spirit to us.

Heal Me
... this song came from grief.

It is a mourning song because "Ah-na-na" is a grief chant from the people of the Northwest Coast and we also found out it is a grief chant of the Hopi.

We Native people too often hear this cry on the long walk to the graveyard. Our people are well acquainted with grief. In my own life I have struggled greatly with the deaths of my dear loved ones.

This cry is to the Creator, the One who can Heal. I have received healing from writing and singing this song.

I long
... this is the first song I ever wrote. It came out of a time of deep longing to know God and to feel the presence of the Great Mystery.
... it also came out of our time at Street Church, Hastings and Main St were renamed "Wastings and Pain" for obvious reasons. We lost so many dear people to drugs and alcohol. Plus there is a court trial going on right now because some men were stalking and killing women for many, many years. We knew some of these women. This part of town is a bit of a contradiction, on the one hand it can be the scary and unpredictable and on the other hand it is a small town where everyone knows everybody's business. It is a beautiful place and I thank God for our time there and the people, many of whom have gone on to the spirit world, who touched my life.

We planted Street Church when my babies were still babies. My three boys were 20 months old, 2 and 3 years old.

Gene Avila

Inspired and moved by a love of the Lord our God
I listen to this CD and it becomes my daily prayer, Heal Me, speaks to my needs, my trust in the Lord, our God. Shine Forth Like the Sun, speaks to the joy and hope we are here to give in His name.


One of my favorite CD's
This is a beautiful CD...every song is full of passion. It's a great CD for worship and meditation on the Creator. The Lord's Prayer is the most beautiful version of that passage that I've ever heard. I highly recommend this CD to everyone!

Lee Rawson

Very good, every song.
I really liked the CD, especially the first song. It is anointed ! I would like to purchase your new CD when it is out.

val janzen

A very real, touching, out pouring of God's power through CD
First heard this on Crossroads. The message and music are truly God-filled. All the songs are exemplary, but if I had to choose one, Shine Forth Like The Sun says it all for me.

Linda L Hill

This music brings the Holy Spirit to you. Thank you

Terry Mengle

Awesome, inspiring worship!
This was a wonderful debut CD. The oil of the Holy Spirit is all over the words, the music, vocalization and the cultural influences. I can't wait to get the new Cheryl Bear CD.
