One of the characteristics of a vibrant music ministry is a well-nurtured children’s choir program. We at Alleluia value the distinctive contribution a children’s choir brings to a worship service and the overall music ministry. These sessions are geared to equip a children’s choir team with relevant and useful tools for effective ministry.

In many congregations, youth choirs are at the heart of worship, music, and youth ministries. We believe that involving young people in music is a fine way to steward their gifts and develop musical, spiritual, and relational foundations for life.
