1 Peter 4:10 King James Version (KJV)
10 As every man hath received the gift, even so minister the same one to another, as good stewards of the manifold grace of God.
At GARDEN OF PRAYER, IT DOESN'T MATTER WHO IS SINGING, WE WILL ALWAYS SUPPORT AND ENCOURAGE ONE ANOTHER. WE MUST "Minister the SAME one to another" with the Gifts God has Given Us.
We demand EXCELLENCE WITHOUT EXCUSE!!! AND WE DO ALL THINGS SOLELY FOR GOD'S GLORY, REALIZING AND RECOGNIZING THAT GOD'S GLORY IS THE PRIMARY REASON WHY WE SING.
Bro. Reginald R. Shannon, Jr., Minister of Music
