Interests

Many exciting things are happening with the Music Ministries at Wesley! We work very hard to minister through music and are widely known for the quality of our program. A very large majority of people who attend and visit Wesley, continually mention music as a primary reason they attend. We are very proud of that. Often, what we “do” is provide music for worship, but that is only a beginning to music ministry. Our job doesn’t end with the benediction on Sunday morning; it includes many facets of discipleship and mission activities through which music can be a tool to touch lives. Why we do what we do is more important, to “lead people to Christ through music in worship.” This drives our goals and our activities.
