MUSIC MINISTRY PENSA-WUHAN
Psalm 95:1. Oh come, let us sing to the Lord; let us make a joyful noise to the rock of our salvation.
Have you ever heard a song that moved you to the point where you wanted to tell all of your friends about it? Well, that’s the type of feeling you may experience when listening to gospel music. By its very definition, the term gospel means ‘good news.’ Gospel music is one of the vehicles through which the ideals of Christianity is spread to audiences all over the world.
1 Chronicles 25:1–6 tells us David selected three men; Asaph, Heman, and Jeduthun to organize and lead music in public services. In that same passage, we are told that these men had between them twenty-four sons, who they trained in the ways of the Ministry. Each of them had specific responsibilities in both instrumentation and voice, and they led an army of musicians.
Four thousand people were dedicated to the ministry of music for the worship of Israel. This shows how God was interested in music
As important as that is to know, what is really noteworthy is how the Lord described their ministry in 1 Chronicles 25:2–3: “Of the sons of Asaph; Zaccur, and Joseph, and Nethaniah, and Asarelah, the sons of Asaph under the hands of Asaph, which prophesied according to the order of the king. Of Jeduthun: the sons of Jeduthun; Gedaliah, and Zeri, and Jeshaiah, Hashabiah, and Mattithiah, six, under the hands of their father Jeduthun, who prophesied with a harp, to give thanks and to praise the LORD.” 1 Chronicles 25:2-3 therefore bears testament to the fact that music was a channel for prophesy. The named musicians did not preach, but their music had a message that gave thanks and brought praise to the Lord.
This is what we aspire to do as the Music Ministry of PENSA-WUHAN Music Ministry. How wonderful it is when music in our services at PENSA-Wuhan is not done as a performance to highlight the talent of the ministry but as a message about the glory of our God.
The Music Ministry, christened “Altar Praise”, aims to glorify our maker and to proclaim the Good News of salvation in Jesus Christ, through music. The Ministry creates a platform for those who know how to sing and those who are not so as to learn from each other and also to help train members on how to sing and to play instruments.
- We meet every Saturday from 12:00pm – 2:00pm, to learn and rehearse songs for church activities
- The Ministry also leads the church on a chosen Sunday in every semester to celebrate “Music Day”.
We believe that God has given to us a unique ministry of bringing salvation to the His people through music that is wholesome.
