MARTIN CHRISTIE

 

 

As David lifted up the Lord and exalted God to be the highest, he was called The

Chief Musician, and then a man after God’s own heart.

So then, a young man named Martin Christie, known as "MC," "The Master," and "The Maestro," was called by God to the music ministry. He was born in London, England, grew up in Kingston, Jamaica, and exploded in his music ministry in Brooklyn, New York. He’s been sought after by some of today’s new, uprising, and major artists.

Also an entrepreneur in the music industry, he wears many hats: a musician, songwriter, producer, promoter, CEO and President of Major Chords and SRO. He seeks not to promote his own ability but to gain higher heights in God and to deify the body of Christ, knowing that because of God’s grace, there is no limit.

 

Finally, some of today’s new, upcoming and major artists that "MC" has worked with are:

The Heavenly Praise Dance Ministry

 

The Heavenly Praise Dancers Liturgical Dance Ministry began, March 1996 under the direction of Diane Nathaniel.   Chatarra Hamlett is the Asst. Director of the dance ministry and there are 20 members who serve the Lord with gladness.  The Bible says to "Let Everything That Has Breath Praise The Lord".   The ministry believes this verse with all of its heart.  Ministering through dance to bring souls to Christ is the purpose and all those who minister have answered the call.  For as long as we can, we will serve the Lord and through dance we will deliver his message.

S.C.R.I.P.T  Drama Ministry

 

Over the years the bible has been translated in many languages so that it could be read and understood by many. Over the years praise has evolved too. Praising God can be seen and heard now through song, dance, mime, rap, recitation and yes Drama. The mission statement of S.C.R.I.P.T  is to serve God with a Kingdom state of mind through performance art and theatrics as we continue to grow in our spiritual walk with our lord. We have joined to bring the bible to life. We strive to give anyone who experiences our ministry an eye witness experiences of the bible as well as shed light on some of the issues we face as Christians. our driving force and foundation for everything that we do is serving and praising God. We know when it comes to praise; most worshipers don't like the word "perform." Well to the drama ministry it doesn't mean "to show" it means:

 

Praise Efficiently Reflected For Our Resurrected Master

 

  We are a ministry that is here to bring a new praise for an ever changing world.
