Music Ministry


 Dr. Ola H. Gathers

From the Desk of the Minister of Music:

It is with Christian love and a heartful of praise that I greet you, the Music Ministry of Israel Baptist Church.

The Music Ministry is a very powerful ministry in any church, and here at Israel, there is no difference. If we can persevere and love God, we shall bring souls in to Christ in unbelievable numbers.

Remember, God loves music, and there are supportive scriptures which substantiates this. Read the story of Jehoshaphat in II Chronicles.

We have adopted UNITY as our motto, and the supporting scripture can be found in Psalms 133:1, which says, “How good and pleasant it is when brothers live together in unity!

Let us join together in Christian love and contribute to the building of God’s kingdom through powerful ministry of music!
