The largest choir in the church is the congregation
The largest choir in the church is the congregation. Role of choir in leading worship is to help our congregation sing together and experience the presence of God. Leading the congregation in hymns and prayers is absolutely essential for worship, since praise is much desired by God.
Music for worship is not for entertainment
Musicians are ministers appointed by God and music for worship is not our entertainment. It is an act of worship (I Chronicles 16:4-6).
Beyond the esthetic level into the spiritual realm
While many choirs learn to sing with musical excellence, which is very important, few musicians take either the congregation or the choir beyond the esthetic level into the spiritual realm. Choir members are to prepare themselves to be the leaders in corporate worship.
We are equipped with a world class sound recording studio in our campus. Our studio is powered by Pro Tools HD (Hi-Definition) with Degidesign’s C 24. Apart from all of our own productions we do prestigious, outside major recordings also.
