This department is assigned to coordinate the research arm of MFM Music Ministry worldwide; activities includes, but is not limited to, sourcing materials for MFM music ministrations, organising music symposiums, and seeking progressive paths for the music ministry.
The research department also serves as the ‘think tank’ section of the music ministry. Moreover, in principle, every member of the music ministry is part of the research team – bearing in mind that we owe it to God as members of this ministry, to sought ways of improving the ministry either musically, spiritually, administratively or otherwise. Although formally commissioned by the General Overseer, Dr D.K. Olukoya at the 2014 Music Ministry Solemn Assembly, permit me to say that the research department is as old as the music ministry itself. After all, there would have been the need to research and source for music materials for the very first ministration.
There is an amazing variety of music-making at the Mountain of Fire and Miracles Ministries. MFM music programmes are often well-balanced, covering a wide range of styles, languages and historical periods. Interestingly, the unprecedented growth witnessed by the music ministry of the church has in recent times made it a subject of international research. This is rightly so when one considers how God has helped us thus far. Considering the spotlight on our music ministry, the research department concerns itself with projects that will ensure the MFM music ministry is at par with other world class Christian music ministries.
To the glory of God, the research department is proud to be the coordinating department for the production of the MFM Music Ministry brochure which is expected to serve as a vital resource material the ministry. Some of our ongoing projects include: surveys across MFM churches worldwide (the purpose for this is to collate information that will assist the Music Council achieve better planning and also organise highly impactful and targeted programmes for the MFM music ministry). Also, by the special grace of God, the newly launched MFM music ministry official website (www.mfmmusicministry.org) is managed by the research department. Further to this, ALL MEMBERS of the MFM Music Ministry worldwide are encouraged to access and fill the Music Ministry online form. This will ensure the international headquarters has a secured database for MFM music ministers worldwide. It is therefore mandatory for choir leaders; praise and worship leaders in all MFM churches to kindly forward their name and email address to the research department email addresses given below. Consequently, we will have an up-to-date record of music ministry leaders in MFM branches and regions worldwide. It will also afford us the opportunity to forward the MFM music ministry online form link to leaders, for onward passing to their members.
It is our collective responsibility to ensure the MFM music ministry continues on a progressive path. Hence, we solicit the support and compliance of everyone to make these arrangements and others, which will be revealed in due course, a huge success. We strongly believe that all these, in addition to prayers, will ensure a healthier, organised and more effective music ministry. Many thanks and God bless you!
