Jesus’ Army of Musicians (JAM)
As the Israelites marched around the Walls of Jericho, up front were not the seasoned warriors, not even the anointed kings, but those that bore the ark of the covenant and the trumpets. At the sound of the trumpets, in unison with the shout of the people, the walls of Jericho crumbled. Musical instruments-the harps and trumpets of old and the guitars, drums,keyboards and flutes of our present age-invite the mighty and holy presence of God. Our hands will be holy weapons against the enemy and ushers of blessing to the people of God.
Voices in Adoration (VIA)
Music is not only the universal language but the language of our very souls and spirits. We minister to our God whenever we lift our voices in praise and worship to Him. When we decide to consecrate our talented voices for the Lord, not only do we assert the privilege of ministering to our God, we are also blessed by our Master Himself. Our gifts of song will be lifted up and treasured by not just man but by the Almighty Creator, the King of kings and Lord of lords.
T.E.A.M. (Triune, Elyondoulos, ACTS, Movenerate)
Dismissing the myth that serving Jesus is a bore, the Street Dancing Ministry personifies the dynamism and excitement of having to serve Jesus from the simplest to the most complicated body bending calisthenics movements.
Tambourine is an instrument that is accurately being used in the different churches as part of the worship tool. The use of tambourine in dancing is especially effective in Middle Eastern dances as musical instrument in praise dancing to usher the presence of God in a church. It records that as King David and his men carried the Ark of God (dwelling place of God) into Jerusalem, he used the tambourine to go before the Ark to prepare the way upon entering the city.
Artists for Christ in Total Surrender (ACTS)
Without sound but with words. Without speech but with eloquence. The pantomime is all about touching souls using the language of the heart instead of touching minds using the language of our mouths. And touched souls mean saved souls… saved souls mean heavenly rejoicing among the saints, among the angels,in the presence of God.
Every sweep of the hand, skip and slide of the feet and arch of the back is an offering. Every movement is an utterance of the soul and an expression of the spirit. Interpretative dance is all about the sharing of the understanding of our souls and spirits of the truths of God through physical representation. We bless the people of God – as we, too, are blessed –with every sacrifice, every offering of our bodies to our Savior and God.
Artist’s Circle (Theater/ Drama Ministry)
Nothing perks a person up more than the promise of a story. If simple storytelling opens ears, then how much more can that same story, bodily demonstrated and acted out, open minds, hearts and souls? Drama and theater is all about the total commitment of working in a team, with a team who yearns to share with people what they themselves have understood in their spirits. And nothing can be more fulfilling than journeying internally with the One God and communicating the realizations amassed in those journeys to hungry,tired and weary hearts.
