The Olivet Baptist Church Music Ministry has the responsibility of preparing and serving the music needs of our congregation. The primary purpose of the Music Ministry is to praise and worship God in the beauty of his holiness.
VISION: To affect a successful God-centered and God-directed music ministry that will contribute to positive change and edification of the body of Believers at Olivet Baptist Church as well as the surrounding community.
MISSION: To continuously produce music ministry fruit by building up and training skilled Levites and Minstrels who can function wisely and skillfully as they minister musically in any worship environment where music ministry takes place in Olivet Baptist Church and the surrounding community.
Music is an integral part of our worship experience at Olivet Baptist Church. Our Music Ministry seeks to:
- Usher in God’s presence through song.
- Lead people into the presence of God through music.
- Prepare the people of God to attune their minds, hearts and spirits to the preached gospel message.
- Utilize the God-given power of music to break strongholds and soothe the troubled spirit.
- Work alongside the Pastoral Ministry to cultivate an atmosphere of authentic worship in spirit and in truth.
The Olivet Music Ministry presently offers two singing ministries: the Voices of Praise Choir and Judah the Ensemble.
