To whom it may concern,
From the moment I first talked with Cissy about the possibility of her singing and speaking at the Women of Purpose Conference in New York, I felt a connection and sensed a servant attitude on her behalf. Upon finding out our theme “Radiant,” she expressed an immediate excitement and a willingness to relate to the women the truth that those who look to the Lord have no shame.
Over the next few months, prior to our conference, Cissy began to contact my Reps, who then referred her to women in our district, whom she carefully interviewed and prayed with about their help in a dramatic presentation called “Cardboard Testimonies.” After her message on Friday, she had thoroughly prepared each of the twenty-three ladies to share their “victim to victor” stories on a piece of poster board. This presentation not only impacted the audience (which was evident during the altar time) but did a work that only the Holy Spirit can do in the lives of the participants as well!
Cissy presented the message, the testimonies and the interspersing of song in such an inspiring, emotional way – totally connecting the women to the Truth of God’s Word. She was an incredible blessing to the women of our district! They fell in love with this Montana girl! I would highly recommend her.

Cissy & Bill,
Thank you for such a great weekend. We enjoyed having you and look forward to our next visit. Cissy, the way you weave your message through the songs you share is amazing. Our people enjoyed having you.
I wanted to thank you for sharing Jesus through Music and God’s Word at our 2011 Quiet Influence Kansas Women’s Conference. The card-board testimonies of the Friday evening service were the high point mentioned by so many ladies. Those testimonies moved women who have walked through the same experience, giving them hope! I am still hearing from many who attended!
Your music, books, sweet spirit and gentle, Godly ways were such a blessing to so many. We also received added blessing with the presence of your sister, Carolyn! What a wonderful family you have—kindred spirits! You both were so accommodating and easy to work with and you blessed us in so many ways!
God’s richest and best to you as you continue to minister for Him!
Blessings to you!

I would like to recommend the ministry of Cissy Padgett. Her sweet spirit and ministry would be a fit for any event. Her music is anointed and will minister directly to your heart.

We recently had Cissy Padgett with us in our Fall Women’s Convention. We have had Cissy come a couple of times before and do our special music at our Conventions. She has written some powerful songs and has several CD’s out now. She just recently released another one entitled, “Just can’t keep from singing”. It has some great songs on it!
We invited Cissy to come and lead the worship as well as some special music. Her sisters came with her which was an added treat. They did a wonderful job. Our ladies really enjoyed them.
Cissy told me later that I really stretched her, because she hadn’t led the worship before in a Convention or Retreat.
She really spent a lot of time in prayer and preparation for the services and worked well with the worship band.
I think your ladies would enjoy her music. She is a really sweet person to work with and loves the Lord very much. She is also sensitive to the leading of the Holy Spirit.
Our ladies really enjoyed her and her sisters.
We had the privilege of meeting this wonderful lady and her husband (Cissy and Bill Padgett) over the weekend 🙂 Let me tell you, if you have the chance to have Cissy Padgett bring her music to your church or ladies group, you will be blessed for sure! Thank you Cissy, for ministering to all of us at Wasilla Lake Church!
Cissy Padgett came to North Dakota the end of September for our Fall Connection. She was booked almost two years in advance, so there was plenty of correspondence during this time. She was very professional, yet warm and easy to work with.
The women at our conference were very touched by her genuine love for the Lord who she sings and speaks about. She was authentic and real which opened their hearts to receive what she presented. Her music was timely and woven through her thoughts and messages. The anointing and a sweet spirit was upon her ministry.
As a former WM Director, I would recommend her to any District. She can come as a singer to any event, or give the whole package of singer/speaker. The women of ND spent time fasting for this event. It encouraged her to know this, and prepared the hearts to be open to His presence and be refreshed. Her sense of humor was mingled in her presentation which brought delight to the listener. She uses videos, clips,and skits for variety.
She is very sensitive to the moving of the Spirit, not depending on her own abilities or talents. The women didn’t want to leave the service because of the work He was doing in their hearts.
She truly has a servant’s giving heart, and the women attending… or you as a host, will not be disappointed.

Cissy Padgett is a true musician – a vocalist with a personalized touch singing from her heart to touch others. Her Christian music, using a variety of styles, pleases the audience. She is very pleasant, up-beat and has a sparkle that makes watching and listening to her a real joy.
We have had Cissy twice as our soloist for the Montana Women’s Retreat held each fall. Both times she has touched many, many lives. Her ministry, “Music With A Mission,” is certainly lived out in her life. We also have used her in the District on various occasions. I highly recommend Cissy. There truly is an anointing of the Lord upon her life as she shares the message of the gospel through song.

Cissy Padgett and Music with a Mission is an inspiration to the Body of Christ. Her music is anointed, her books inspirational and her ministry transformational. Cissy, and her husband Bill, have traveled the world with the glorious good news of Christ. Whether they are in a remote native village in Alaska, in the streets of Romania, in a church in Thailand or the USA, their mission and message remains potent and relevant with many lives impacted in a wonderful way.
We recently had Cissy Padgett with us as part of our mission convention. I was quite pleased with the sensitivity and appropriateness of her ministry. Our people thoroughly enjoyed the encouraging, challenging message of Cissy’s music. She is clearly professional in her performance, but beyond that, Cissy’s heart is for edifying the believer and reaching people with the Good News of Jesus Christ.
I highly recommend Cissy and Music with a Mission to you and your congregation. She will be a blessing to you.
Sincerely Yours in Christ,
South Anchorage Assembly of God
Thank you for coming our way and blessing us with your music, life’s testimony and passion to see your audience connect with the Lord.
God has gifted you with gifts that edifies others and brings fulfillment to you. We know He will continue to use you wherever the door is open to minister.
We appreciated your servant attitude and gracious spirit.
We are so happy that you came to minister at our church in April of this year! Your music and singing is anointed and we know that the Lord is leading your life. Your singing appealed to our congregation and you related and connected to all of us. You are one of the most anointed guests we have had! We pray that you continue in the work of our Lord, and allow His Presence to guide you each step of the way.

It is my delight to recommend Cissy Padgett and her “Music with a Mission.” Soon after inviting Cissy to provide special music for Wyoming District’s 2010 Women’s Retreat, I had the privilege of hearing her sing for the National Women’s Seminar in Orlando, Florida. Cissy’s musical ability, friendliness, and professionalism confirmed the wisdom of our invitation.
At our Women’s Retreat in October, Cissy gave us her best. Her pleasant personality and passion for Jesus shine. Her versatility in style pleases a wide range of tastes, and her poignant lyrics touch the deepest needs of the heart. Cissy’s efforts to harmonize her ministry with our guest speaker and with our schedule exemplify her integrity and her beautiful servant’s heart.
With her musical gifting and sensitivity to the Holy Spirit, Cissy Padgett brings joy, inspiration, and God’s grace wherever she ministers.
