This year, we will once again hold Music Ministry Program (MMP), this time with the theme "The Foundation of the True Church". This program is intended to provide an environment for brothers and sisters who are ready to serve in the music ministry to come together to learn about God, fellowship, and create musical resources that can be used to strengthen and teach members. In addition, some project groups will have the opportunity to evangelize the word of God through music.

The program is open to all baptized members currently in J1 or above (that is, currently in 7th grade or above), as of March 2017, including adults. The Music Ministry Program provides a great opportunity for us to serve God together in the music ministry as one body. Thus, all participants must attend full time and lodge at church. Interested baptized members should apply here by May 7, 2017.

The purposes of this MMP are:

  • To cultivate workers in the music ministry.
  • To create musical resources to strengthen members' faith and to teach the word of God.
  • To provide opportunities for members to evangelize the word of God through music.

The projects of this MMP are:

  • Beginning Composition: Compose, arrange, and write lyrics for songs for use in Religious Education to help students memorize the word of God through music; skills needed: willing heart to compose; interest in writing poems
  • Memory Verse Songs: Compose and arrange memory verse songs for use in Religious Education to help students memorize the word of God through music; skills needed: can compose, arrange; adept with notation software (e.g., Finale, Sibelius); note: for second-year applicants (i.e., attended previous MMP Composition project or advanced in arrangement/composing)
  • Hymnbook Vocal Recordings: Record hymns from Hymns of Praise in four parts with piano accompaniment to aid in hymn leading and for self-cultivation; skills needed: adept in sight reading; can learn a hymn in four parts quickly without additional training; can sing on pitch
  • Evangelical Singers: Go out in small groups to spread the word of God through music and words; skills needed: a heart willing to evangelize
  • Evangelical Instrumental: Accompany the Evangelical Singers group and go out to spread the word of God through music; skills needed: fluent in playing an instrument and a heart willing to evangelize

We will conclude the Music Ministry Program with an evangelical worship service on Friday, July 14th at 7 pm. Dinner will be provided. We encourage you to invite your friends and family to this special event!
