Music Ministers Need Training and Discipleship

Church leaders are very pivotal to young men and women achieving their full potentials in Christ. I say this because I am a product of this. Most of you have read my story, and I keep telling it to encourage younger folks, and to put them in the straight and narrow path. I have since found out that it is not Love or an act of kindness and goodness to put a young man or woman in the limelight, merely on the basis of talent. This is something I personally did not understand but as I grew, and matured in Christ, this has became so clear and real to me. Many say doing so is to encourage them....

Tips for Having an Impartful Praise & Worship Ministration

Hello! From my personal few experiences as a worship leader, here are a few things I have come to understand can truly help you minister effectively during a praise and worship session, be it in a large church gathering or a house fellowship or a small group. • Have a Spiritual Focus: At the time of preparation, prayerfully have a definite focus for the session. Let the Holy Spirit open the eyes to what he needs to get done through you in that session.

Worship Leader, Know and Value Your Grace

As a worship leader, one of my greatest lessons in 2016 was the importance of knowing the grace God has given me, appreciating it, valuing it and maximising it. Putting it to the fullest use wherever and whenever possible for the glory of God. This is not about being prideful and arrogant, it's about being faithful to God. You need to know the grace of God upon your life and value it and operate by it. If you don't some people, unfortunately within the same ministry, can ridicule it and make you belittle it also. No only that, they will also treat you weigh below the worth God has made you ...

Here is me writing from how the Holy Spirit has helped me, time and again. I wasn't really taught all of these things this way, but I picked them up as the Holy Spirit helped me. Fundamentally, your offering of praise & worship to God must be given your best efforts at all times. Offering the best starts from your focus and your preparation. God is your focus, not man. Let God be the focus of your desire for giving your best, no...

How To Develop Your Prophetic Gift: Where to Begin

Your Gift of Prophecy You believe you have a spiritual gift of prophecy (Rom 12:6)–the special ability given by the Holy Spirit to receive messages from God for yourself and others [1]–but how and where do you start developing it? Like any spiritual gift and skill, the gift of prophecy takes study, practice and training to develop to its fullest potential. We need to be intentional about developing the spiritual gifts God has invested in our lives. We have a responsibility to steward the gifts God has given us (2 Tim 1:6, 14). In the New Testament, prophecy is nurtured and grown in the en...

7 Results of Abiding in God’s Anointing

Here's an excerpt from an email I received from pastor Benny Hinn's email newsletter sometime ago. I believe you will find this very helpful. The anointing is the overflow of Christ in your life! It comes to us as we spend time in God’s Word, seek Him with our whole heart, and worship Him. Jesus said: “If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you” (John 15:7). We increase the anointing by spending time in His presence. And you will certainly know when the presence of the Holy Spirit has come upon your life. Here are s...
