He received a Juno award for Holy God (Contemporary Christian/Gospel Album of the Year) in 2008 and and a Lifetime Achievement Award from the Gospel Music Association of Canada at the Covenant Awards in 2014.

Doerksen’s latest album is Hymns For Life, his take on timeless hymns which also features his father, Harry.

His most recent single is Every Dream, co-written and released with Marika Siewert and playing across Canada on radio.

Doerksen continues to write new songs and release singles and is the director of a new online songwriting program called Unlocking Your Songs.
