Music for the King
The main purpose of Music For The King is to train and develop worship leaders, musicians, songwriters, sound/multimedia volunteers from within the local church for the local church for the glory of God the Father. With an emphasis in International Youth Leaders in partnership with Nexus International (http://www.nexusinternational.org/)
A second important goal is to resource missionaries overseas with instruments, music books, CDs and videos for their own learning and equipping experience. As well as visiting with them and listening to their needs, as we travel to their local geographical areas of ministry. It is the desire of our director, Wladimir Navarro, to partner with other ministries in making this resourcing to missionaries possible and effective.
For the local church at large, we also offer and provide training videos, seminars, workshops and clinics about worship leading, guitar, piano, bass, drums, songwriting, sound & multimedia, covering specific technical aspects in each of these areas as well as providing a Theological foundation based on the sound doctrine teaching of the Word of God.
In the area of Theology: we help the believers involved in the music ministry to understand the biblical driving principles of each of their areas of ministry. To understand why we do what we do and who is it for. Growing in humility while pursuing excellence. To help to develop a heart of worship as described in John 4:23-24
In the area of music: we help classical trained musicians to learn to be their own arrangers using simple chord charts. This includes piano, flute, violin, viola, cello, etc. We also want to resource musicians with original music as well as some of the contemporary main stream worship music.
In the area of Technology: we help the local church to stay current with the newest technologies available by training their leaders and volunteers in how to use them, to maximize their reach across all generations. Making sure we use all the tools available for the equipping of the saints as we, together, continue to fulfill the great commission.
