On Saturday, November 25, 2017, I held a training session with 37 students of Central University, Miotso, Ghana. They were all either instrumentalists or members of the choir and/or praise & worship team. Due to all manner of delays on the road to Ghana and arriving later than anticipated, the training was slightly under 2 hours long and was divided into ‘The Music Ministry’ and ‘The Worship Ministry’. The feedback from the participants was most encouraging and gives me hope for the future of the Church in Africa…..if we can get more and more young ministers to get the right mindset and understanding about these ministries.

“The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases;
his mercies never come to an end;
they are new every morning;
great is your faithfulness.”
(Lamentations 3:22-23, ESV)
These are the lyrics of a very popular song from years ago. Yet they are still fresh and relevant to us today because they were lifted straight out of the scriptures and truth will always be fresh and relevant no matter the age.
The song came into my heart as I sat and thought about God this morning. You know we take it for granted that every 24 hours, a new day will begin; that the laws of physics – gravity and the rest of it – will keep things going as they ought to; even that we will wake up the next morning after we shut our eyes and go to sleep at night. This morning, I thought of these things and saw God’s great faithfulness. I was reminded that Jesus “is the perfect imprint and very image of [God’s] nature, upholding and maintaining and guiding and propelling the universe by His mighty word of power.” (Hebrews 1:3, AMPC) Read more →
