This is a Jubilee NYC event with collaborating musicians and artists. Jubilee Worship manager and worship leader, Bex, is a seasoned member who has participated in Jubilee Chorus and Worship at WOA events. With firm visions of uniting the Body of Christ and sharing the Gospel, she recruited worship band members from all over New York state and New Jersey. These members include: Isaiah (drums), Dan (guitar), Francesca (vocal), Jen (vocal, guitar, mandolin), and Bill (keyboard). As the event approached, Shu (violin) and Chris (dance) also joined the group. The team rehearsed on 3-4 occasions. They have bonded over praising the Lord together and sharing fellowship in one another's presence. In the mean time, Bex diligently promoted the opportunities to share their music across the regions, such as in Jubilee HQ in Dover and St. Louis, MO.
At the start of the event, worship team gathered before the Lord to pray with thankfulness, to surrender their burdens and lift up the name of Jesus Christ. The event opened with graceful worship. Throughout the event, the versatile worship team was able to worship the Lord in different styles as worship members switched instruments and rotated leadership for various songs. There was a special dance performance, accompanied by violin solo. Dancer Christopher shared the testimony behind his dance. His performance conveyed His gratitude for God for saving his life years ago. In her music Shu also expressed the overwhelming sentiments she harbored for the strivings of human life. Worship members Bill and Francesca also shared their testimonies, inspired by being the Body of Christ to worship together. Jubilee NYC representative, Dorothy, then delivered a brief message on John 15, exhorting the worshippers of God to remain in the love of Christ to truly taste the freedom of salvation. After the event, Jubilee members and church members gathered in the social hall to enjoy a time of fellowship and an abundance of refreshments.
May the name of the Lord be lifted high through this event. God has blessed Immanuel New York and Jubilee NYC abundantly with the new sound equipment recently. Through trials and tribulations, God continues to demonstrate His love and faithfulness. Through our insufficiencies, His power and glory are revealed. Jubilee NYC leadership looks forward to the more worship events to come, each one piling up improvements and abundant prayer. Jubilee prays with hope that, as they work together with church mission, the Gospel of Christ may reach the lost souls of the Bronx area and bear fruits for the Kingdom of God.
