    • Operation Nehemiah... Rebuilding the Sudan - Vince gets involved in helping out persecuted Christians via his radio show, "Perspectives." Vince and Peg hosted a three part series on the worldwide persecution of Christians. With the help of Joe Brennan, original drummer of The Pigeons and now minister for C.A.R.E., they featured Reverend William Levi, founder and CEO of Operation Nehemiah Missions in the Sudan. William escaped the Sudan after the violent and intolerant Muslim regime in power emprisoned him and tortured him for being a Christian. Millions of others were not so fortunate... He has since returned to his country to try and help rebuild his village and help some of the millions of displaced Christians return to their homeland. Check out William's website, and find out how you can get involved in stopping the torture and persecution of Christians in the Sudan and Darfur.

    • Vetaid National - Vince helps bring attention to an organization that helps out homeless and indigent veterans.VETAID NATIONAL was created to assist veterans and their families when all other avenues of assistance have been exhausted. "We as a nation must never forget the sacrifices that the veterans and their families have made to secure the freedoms and life we enjoy in these United States..." Check out The Chaplain's Corner page for weekly messages from Pastor John Tillet.

    • The Brotherhood of Jesus Christ Motorcycle Ministries - Vince helps out the motorcycle ministry of Brother Frank Minucci, actor (Tony T. from "Carlito's Way"), author and founder of Heartlight Ministries. Brother Frank also acts as minister in the Robe of Jesus Christ Motorcycle Ministry: it is the blessed marriage of music, motorcycles and the Good Word reaching out to those who have lost their way in this world. Check them out, and even get to ride with them!!

Before Vanilla Fudge was Vanilla Fudge, they were The Pigeons. It was Vince, Mark Stein, Tim Bogert and drummer Joe Brennan(left). After Joe left The Pigeons, he went on to work with Bonnie Bramlett, The Duprees, The Younger Brothers, Howell, Johnny Charles Blues Band, and The Red Legs (a British Band). Joe is also a big part of a ministry touring prisons in the United States, South America, Israel and Europe. Joe has been performing with Vince and the band regularly this year, pictured above at the Annual Bayfest at Sheepshead Bay in Brooklyn, New York.
