Our History


William "Curt" Jensen

William “Curt” Jensen was born in Brooklyn New York in 1936 to immigrant parents from
Denmark. He won his first radio contest singing and playing the ukulele at age 8. By the time he was 22, he was featured on Dick Clarks American Bandstand and then quickly rose to Billboard's top 100 hits with “Just For You” on PET records. Other hits included: “If I Only Knew” (on the flip side), as well as “How Could You Be” / “My Own Quiet Way” on Big B records “Meet Me in St. Louis, Louis” / “It Takes a Little Time” on 20th Century Fox, and “My First Love, My Last Love” / “Bobbie”, on the DeWitt label. Amid soaring successes, he had an encounter with the living God, met the love of his life, Gail (a talented vocalist in her own right), and left it all behind to raise a family and use his talents for the Lord. Writing over 100 “Christian” songs, he brought rock and country music into the church arena changing traditional worship into exciting praise music in multitudes of church ministries throughout New York. Forty years later, upon retiring from the Bell Atlantic Telephone Company, he became the Founding Pastor and full-time Reverend of My Father’s House Ministries in Newport, NH. He served beside his wife for another 30 years before passing away. He is the father of Heidi North, Bambi Defilippis, and Daniel Jensen. He is also the grandfather of Brianna, Lindsay, and Heather Defliippis, Curtis and Caleb North, Ryan Manning, and Autumn and Dylan Jensen.
