26 Y Él dijo: El reino de Dios es como un hombre que echa el grano en el suelo, 27 y luego sigue durmiendo y el aumento de noche y de día mientras que la semilla germina y crece, y [a] los aumentos - que él sepa cómo. 28El produce la tierra [actuar] por sí mismo - primero hierba, luego espiga, después el grano lleno en la espiga.

107.9 FM Miracle Radio The First Radio Station to Play “Worship The Great I AM” Praise the LORD! Hallelujah! And He said, the kingdom of God is like a man who scatters seed upon the ground (Mark 4:26). On Thursday February 24, 2011, the song ―Worship The Great I Am‖ was scattered on the ground when it was played on 107.9 FM World International Network (WIN)/ Miracle Radio. I had a brief interview and promoted ―The Breakthru Experience!‖ concert. During the interview, I cried when I heard myself on the radio singing ―Worship The Great I Am‖. I remembered what it took to complete the song and thought about the number of lives that will be inspired to worship. Special thanks to the team at WIN 107.9 FM, Brooklyn Christian Center and Reverend Dennis Dillon for promoting the message of this worship song on the radio. The earth produces [acting] by itself-first the blade, then the ear, then the full grain in the ear (Mark 4: 28). I know that this air play is just the beginning for this has been prophesied on many occasions over my ministry. What is my blade? What is the ear? I don’t know. Do you know what yours is? In the mean time, participate in worship with 107.9 FM WIN radio: (1) Tune in and listen to the station 107.9 FM WIN is heard from 7:30 -9:00 am. (2) Call in 347-547-6523 and make a prayer request (3) then ask to hear the song ―Worship The Great I Am‖ (4) after 9: 00 am you may call 718-638-6397 for prayer. Thank you for your support. Is your radio station next? Can God use your station to scatter his seed?

Minister of Music 1. Cathedral Of Hope Seventh-Day Worship Center On February 26, 2011 at 2:00 p.m., the Cathedral of Hope Seventh-Day Worship Center celebrated the 9th Pastoral Anniversary of Pastor Sylvia Dummett. ―Atonement Has Come, Crossover‖ was the theme. I was invited to sing two songs ―Worship The Great I Am‖ and ―I Have Never‖. The Holy Spirit’s presence was powerful and I was encouraged to continue to lead worship. I ended up leading a number of songs, well known songs (ex. ―Here I Am Standing In The Need of Prayer‖ and ―To Worship You I Live‖) for prayer, rededication and the laying on of hands. After service, a dinner reception followed in her honor. Congratulations pastor! A few weeks later, I was invited to be the Minister of Music and accepted. What a privilege and an honor to lead others through music into God’s presence. Saturday June 4th was my first day working as the Minister of Music for the Cathedral of Hope SeventhDay Worship Center. The congregation is small but their love for the things of God is big. Pastor Dummett has partnered with the Creflo Dollar Ministerial Association (CDMA). CDMA is a global network for ministers that assist in maximizing a ministry's vision; The Cathedral of Hope Seventh-Day Worship Center is located in New York at 520 Concord Avenue in the Bronx. The church meets from 1:00 – 3:00pm on Saturdays.
2. In The Presence Of His Majesty, Inc. Outreach Ministries The first church, if you recall, was a new church called In The Presence of His Majesty where Dr. Sandra Khan is the Pastor. This is also a small church but God is doing great things through this congregation. The church is located in Unity Temple, 623 Madison Ave, Brooklyn NY 11221 (718) 453-3302 and service is held on Sundays from 8:00 to 10:00am.

“Make Some Noise!” is a fun experience. It is a new concept where everyone in the audience has an opportunity to participate. We sing the theme song and then make noise about every 20 minutes with Tambourines and Maracas. There are guest artists like musicians, painters, poets and singers the 1st and 3rd Sunday of every month. At “Make Some Noise!” Gina Goodridge-Hendrickson sings her original hit song “Worship The Great I Am” as heard on 107.9 FM Word International Network (WIN)/ Miracle Radio. Jazzpel has great food thus making for a wonderful dining experience. You will definitely want to carry the entire evening home. So, there are various vendors and artist memorabilia available for purchase. “

THE GOOD NEWS HANG OUT
I popped in to dine at the new spot for THE GOOD NEWS HANG OUT. Here one can enjoy good food and fellowship. I was happy for the opportunity to sing ―I Have Never‖ during open mic. The DJ was great and the featured artist was Chico Mendez. Chico Mendez has a CD entitled ―Touched by the Love of Jesus‖ which contains six songs. We celebrated Br. Richards’s mother’s birthday and a good time was had by all. You never know where I will show up!
Because You Asked People ask me so many questions and I am now learning the answers to them. How can I worship like you, make CDs, photos, websites, barcodes, news letter, why write the song, inspiration and the list goes on. So instead of just writing about what I am doing, I’ll also write about what I am learning! I’ll be sharing bullet points of things learned about ministry and the business of Christian music. Let me know if this information is useful. Why? Because you asked!

Get a new image of what you are as a musician He learned to speak in tongues through his fingers through the flow of the Holy Spirit. Fingers can play instruments in tongues.2Timothy 2: 21 & 22 o If a man therefore purges himself from these, he shall be a vessel unto honor, sanctified and meet for the master’s use, and prepared unto every good work. o Flee also youthful lusts: but follow righteousness, faith, charity, peace, with them the call on the Lord out of a pure heart. Most musicians model themselves after the world. Get away from that. It’s what is on the inside that’s why you need to learn more than just licks and trills. Musician this is were your calling aught to be. Follow after righteousness and faith. You need to be a container of stuff on the way to people so God can use you. Learn your craft. Learn to bring up your level in order to do your job at another level.
BUSINESS: Gospel Music Association (GMA) www.GospelMusicAssociation.com As stated be the previous issue, the mission (to expose, promote and celebrate the Gospel through music), GMA offers service for members and non-members. I sent an original song to the GMA song critique service to be reviewed. Hugh’s Music Den made this financially possible (Thanks again). Unfortunately, It takes six weeks to receive a critique, however, it is informative. Bellow is the section on originality. IN THE PRESENCE OF HIS MAJESTY GOODRIDGE-HENDRIDRICKON/THIBOU ORIGINALITY – If judged solely on ―originality‖, this song does not achieve a new level. The originality of a song must present a brand new idea or the completely fresh approach to an established idea. The theme of a song, or even the title, must carry the song and presenting an original idea makes the song viable. Now, this dos not disqualify the song for its worth. For example, ―In The Presence of His Majesty‖ is a good idea and song. In fact, the title is not bad at all. The worst part of writing praise and worship songs is that almost every conceivable idea has been written. LYRIC – Starting the song with ―You are invited‖ immediately invites the listener into the song as well. Identifying the place as one of forgiveness, mercy, and grace is also a good kick-off. ―There is victory for your faith‖ is a bit vague, but I like the thought. The line promises that the will not be hungry or poor. In a spiritual or emotional sense, this may be accurate, but here is some conflict here for me. Some are hungry and struggling financially. I’m a bit afraid that some will hear these words as a pathway to sudden wellness. Remember when writing to think of the entire audience for you songs. The pre-chorus invitation is not bad, but repeating words doesn’t …
