Every service, every bus ride, every overnight stay that weíve had with Joyful Sound ó each one is special to me, and each comes with different memories. Although, there is one memory that I will never be able to forget, and that was the final service of the semester last year.
All the teams were singing together that night. And there were some previous Joyful Sound members in the audience who were invited to come up to the stage and sing with the group, too.
I lack the words to accurately describe that moment: dozens of voices lifted in praise and adoration. But it was worship in its purest form. It was unity as brothers and sisters in Christ, with eyes taken off our differences and focused on the Savior.
It wasnít about who had the best voice, but that every voice was singing the same praise to the same God.
Honestly, it was as if I was given a small glimpse into what heaven will be like. It was a moment where I experienced what it genuinely looks like to worship and adore the Lord together as a family.
Thatís what this ministry is all about; that is how this ministry is making a difference.
Itís not about putting on a performance in a church service; instead, our ministry is to serve as ambassadors of the university in local churches and lead the body of Christ in worship. Our sole purpose is to share, through song, the gospel and the love of Jesus with every individual that we come in contact with. Itís about coming together
as a family to boldly proclaim the love of Jesus and to praise Him for all that He is.
Every person is given a different ability, a different gift, a different calling in life. But we are all given the same command, and that is to go, to tell, to boldly proclaim the gospel. I know that is my command for this life: to faithfully serve Him and make His name known wherever I go in this world.
