On April 13, hundreds gathered at Ebenezer Missionary Baptist Church as the Ebenezer Missionary Baptist Music Ministry presented “Worship His Majesty.” The celebration was a two-part event, one part teaching and the second worship.


FEELING THE SPIRIT—Reverend Dr. Sheila Johnson

The teaching included multiple mini seminars prior to the concert on the topic “Praise or Perform, what’s a music ministry to do?” In addition, an Organ and Piano Masters class was held specially tailored for instrumentalists. Participants experienced Biblical teaching during rehearsals.
