Music for Life is an international ministry best known for producing the African Children’s Choir. Using the power of music to find common ground, their vision is to bring hope, healing and the love of God to people around the world.
This year’s theme of “Worship: Beyond the Music” is intended to reignite the idea of worship as a lifestyle in Christ-followers in the Lower Mainland. All proceeds from the Music for Life Conference and Worship Night will go to supporting Music for Life’s various educational programs they run throughout Africa.
