There is No Music Ministry in the New Testament.

There is no such thing there is as ‘music ministry’ in the new testament. Not one mention of singers or choir or music ministers. From the book of Matthew through Acts to Revelation, not one music minister was mentioned.

In Acts 8, Phillip went down to Samaria and preached Christ and the supernatural broke out in the city. There was no music, no musicians, no special singers yet there were miracles, signs and wonders. Souls were saved, healed and delivered. But no music was mentioned.

Peter walked on the streets of Jerusalem and his shadow healed the sick but there was no special singer following him about to sing and bring down the glory and power of God.

Paul travelled for years preaching the gospel to many nations and not ONE mention was made of a music minister with him, yet he was used by God in an awesome way to preach Christ, to establish and expand the kingdom.

Sorry to burst your religious bubble but there is NO such thing as music ministry in the new testament. If you SEE it in the new testament, please SHOW me where it is. Blessings.

    You are right beloved. There is no choir department, praise and worship session and so many other different ministry or department that we have put in place to strengthen our organisation or denomination.
    Sadly, some of this structures and man generated ministries have kept us busy and replaced sincere worship of God in spirit and truth, and ministry of word and prayer.

  2. Certainly, there’s no such title as ministers of music or a music ministry in the New Testament, but that does not mean that there do not exist gifts set in the Church to build her through Holy Spirit inspired music.

    Names and titles mean nothing but the calling to accomplish a certain task in the Body of Christ. If that call is to build, encourage, strengthen, and guide your listeners through musical grace, then, right there is your purpose. Stick to it. Follow it. Stay there.

    I have discovered that ministering through music is usually a step into another phase of ministry. Usually a gift mix.

    And I do not believe that all the possible ministries set in the Church were listed in the New Testament. The so called five-fold ministry is not all there is.

    Romans 12:6‭, ‬8 NIV
    We have different gifts, according to the grace given to each of us. If your gift is prophesying, then prophesy in accordance with your faith; if it is to encourage, then give encouragement; if it is giving, then give generously; if it is to lead, do it diligently; if it is to show mercy, do it cheerfully.

    I have never heard of the names: ministry of encouragement, ministry of leading, ministry of mercy. But there are those who have been given grace to function in those areas.

    As in Acts 6, those chosen to serve tables were full of the Holy Spirit and wisdom. Another word for wisdom is Skill. Serving tables is a ministry requiring grace to function just like the ministry of the word.

    There’s nothing wrong in giving your niche a name to give you clarity of purpose. Who cares what you call it as long as you are meeting a need in the Body of Christ?

    Arguments that do not build but tear down. Focus on what builds.

    Forget about names and titles. Do what God has called you to do with all diligence and faith. Stay there until God leads you into your next assignment. Peace

    My next book on the ‘Ministry of Music’ is going to be out shortly. Look out for it 🙂

    (I will send you are free copy big bro:))
