Greetings in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, welcome to Voices in Praise. The Bible states that “The principle thing is to get wisdom, yet in all thy getting get an understanding.” In this light we’d like to let you get to know who we are and why we sing.
We are a community based ensemble composed of people from all different theological backgrounds and churches in the Portland area. When we come together under the banner Voices in Praise, our main purpose is to sing the Gospel (Good News) of Christ and his redemptive work on the cross. Our purpose is to minister to the whole individual: mind, body and spirit. To provide an alternative to the world, we uphold Jesus as our Lord and Savior. Our number one priority is saving souls through the gift of song. We strive to sing all types of gospel music so no matter what color, gender or age, this ministry will provide something that everyone can relate to. VOICES IN PRAISE is a caring group; we know the ministry must go deeper than the outer surface. We also have various ministries within our ensemble. These ministries include:
- a clothes closet providing ‘gently used’ garments to the needy.
- providing monthly food baskets to those in need during these hard times of high un-employment and financial instability.
It’s our destiny to stay focused, strong, and obedient to his will. The Lord will lead us the rest of the way. – Lorraine Graham
