The music bands was inaugurated as a department of the MFM Music Ministry by the General Overseer, Dr D.K. Olukoya during the 2014 Music Ministry Solemn Assembly. The department has been set up to discover instrumental and vocal talents in praise and worship groups in MFM churches worldwide. Since inception, we have visited several branches and regions, both within and outside Nigeria. These visits have yet again affirmed to us that God has indeed blessed the Mountain of Fire and Miracles Ministries with talented individuals; subsequently, many have been discovered and featured at major international programmes. It is great to know they are using their gifts to the glory of God. It is our prayer that God will continually strengthen us for His service in Jesus name. The creation of this department has also helped correct some of the misconceptions about band music selection and organisation at the Mountain of Fire and Miracles Ministries. For instance, within Lagos regions and its environs, the impression that only those from the headquarters have the opportunity to lead at international programmes such as PMCH has been corrected.
The music bands department has the objective of developing, coordinating and standardising musical bands in MFM churches worldwide. In achieving this, we advise band members, including praise and worship team members to avoid the overly use of keyboard percussion. Also, there is need for band members to be versatile and consistently increase their repertoire list. Further to this, it is important to know that we are music ministers and not music entertainers, hence, we are expected to comport ourselves before, during and after ministrations. This department also emphasises the need for harmony between singers and instrumentalists.
