Phil Keaggy won his very first Dove award in 1988 for his instrumental album “The Wind and the Wheat. Keaggy’s second Dove Award came in 1992 for his Celtic-influenced, “Beyond Nature.” Each year from 1998 to 2001, Keaggy has dominated the “Instrumental Record” category at the Doves, winning for “Invention,” “Acoustic Sketches,” “Majesty and Wonder,” and most recently “Lights of Madrid.” Today, Keaggy continues to be one of the most sought after studio guitarists and sells out concerts all over the United States, with his ever-changing style, ranging from rock-and-roll to fully orchestrated instrumental compositions.

Their purpose is to educate and empower individuals to make life-affirming choices through providing services at one of their two medical clinics locations.
