Ministry Through Worship

GOD DESERVES OUR PRAISE! 敬拜讚美事工

推展事工異象最主要的方式之一是藉著主領敬拜讚美的聚會,讓信徒們親身體驗到同心讚美與全人敬拜神的喜樂與感動。新心舉辦的聚會,大都以主題性方式讓音樂與信息,見證緊緊相連,一氣呵成。從歌頌讚美神,渴慕神的同在,認罪,到委身,全然交托與敬拜,使與會的基督徒能在各個層面來經歷神,靈命得到造就與更新。

新心事工所舉辦的福音性佈道會,也是結合詩歌與證道,傳講神的榮美與恩典,並邀請及帶領慕道友體驗基督深長的愛,藉著聖靈的工作以此呼召他們進入神豐盛的同在中。

從1997年至現在,神帶領新心以德州境內的華人教會和退修會為事奉的起點,逐漸擴展到北美二十七州和加拿大等地。除了在華人人口較集中的大城巿有許多聯合性的聚會外,並在二零零四年開始針對分散在各州的小型華人教會和查經班進行巡迴服事。

神也在2000年為新心在亞洲的服事開了門。如今在香港、台灣、新加坡、馬來西亞、印尼、中國、緬甸等國家,新心有機會與許多教會和機構同工,將真理闡揚,讓人看見神的榮耀。

從2003年開始,新心嘗試舉辦敬拜退修會,無論是在北美或亞洲,藉著退到寧靜的地方尋求神,等候神,且聆聽神的話語,幫助個人和群體與神親近。新心也不斷地參與許多聖樂大會和宣教年會的服事,傳遞敬拜的異象和分享在敬拜上的學習。

2004年新心在新加坡成立事工中心,並栽培當地同工,藉此能服事更多亞洲地區的教會。同時間,新心也至南美洲的巴西和位於歐洲的德國。透過敬拜讚美會或福音佈道會,接觸極多的華人,並在聚會中常親見神的慈愛與大能,引領人心歸向主。

在未來的日子,新心將繼續與教會同工,持守以音樂領人到神面前的異象,榮耀主名。

One of the visions of New Heart is to help Christians personally experience the joy of worshiping God through a celebrative and reverent Praise and Worship Meeting. Most of these meetings are organized with a thematic outline that combines the ministry of music, sharing, and a message. We hope to lead people to experience spiritual revival through expressions of worship such as praising God, desiring His presence, confessing our sins, and recommitting our lives,

New Heart is also committed to host Music Evangelistic Meetings to share the gospel with non-Christians. We use songs and testimonies which focus on God's saving grace and invite people to respond to the love of Christ and the work of the Holy Spirit.

Since 1997, God has given New Heart the opportunity to serve Chinese churches and lead worship at various retreats and conferences in Texas, the U.S., and Canada. Not only have we served churches in cities with large Chinese populations, but we have also served smaller churches and fellowships in different states.

In the year 2000, God opened the door for New Heart to serve in Asia. Since that time, we have traveled extensively to places such as Taiwan, Hong Kong, Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, China, and Myanmar. We have had many opportunities to partner with various churches and Christian organizations in spreading the gospel so that people may experience the greatness and glory of God.

In 2003, New Heart began organizing Worship Retreats in the U.S. as well as in other countries. They are an invaluable experience for Christians because it allows us to seek God in a quiet and guided retreat setting. We have witnessed many life changes during these retreats as people learned to listen and wait upon the Lord. We also seek opportunities to serve in Conferences and Sacred Music Camps in order to share our passion for God-centered worship and to train and inspire generations of worshipers.

In 2004, New Heart Music Limited was established in Singapore as our second ministry center in addition to our office in Houston. Through this branch, we are able to serve more churches in Asia by conducting meetings and worship training. We have also had the privilege of visiting Chinese churches in South America and Europe, and we continue to see the growing needs that exist everywhere we journey. At the same time, God has opened our eyes to see His power at work in the lives of many people as we continue serving churches throughout the world.

In the days to come, we hope to press on with the vision of leading people into God's presence through music and to give God all the glory and praise.

New Heart Goals in Worship

We are committed to encourage engagement of the whole person, both intellectually and emotionally in the act of worship.

  1. We will select and compose music towards accomplishing this goal.
  2. We will blend traditional hymns and contemporary choruses in a given worship.
  3. We encourage worshipers to pursue freedom in expression during worship.
  4. We will develop corporate, celebrative worship without losing its reverence.
  5. We will develop a smooth flow of worship surrounding one single, unified theme.
  6. We will balance both instrumental and vocal music in a worship, with the singular purpose of aiding worshipers to seek God's face.
  7. We will encourage each worshiper to pursue a vibrant personal worship and family worship at home, and to live a holy and obedient life before God.
  8. We will seek to create a suitable environment for christians and truth seekers, young and old alike, to worship God and dedicate their lives to God.

Goals in Equipping the Church

We hope that our contributions and impact to a church will last beyond the worship concerts. We hope to share our learning experiences with all christians so that they can benefit from them and develop their own style of worship suitable for their own church environment. We believe in sharpening our musical skills so that we can glorify God with these skills. As a result,

  1. We see the need of developing the next generation of Christian musicians who will serve the Lord with gladness in the local church. We are currently offering classes for worship leaders, piano or keyboard players and drum players with the sole purpose of improving the worship.
  2. We will publish music and materials for congregation and small groups with more limited resources. We will serve as a resource center for smaller congregations. We are committed to train musicians for other churches in order that they may serve their own church better.
  3. We will concentrate our effort to translate and compose new songs for use in the worship services so that the need for new and more updated materials may be fulfilled.
  4. We will work closely with pastors of different churches to achieve a worship that takes into consideration the worship tradition of the church and sensitive to the denominational needs.
  5. We will record and publish CDs and tapes of worship concerts for the congregation to use in their personal worship.
  6. We will organize workshops and short-term (one to two weeks) summer training camps to train worship leaders and church musicians. We will also work with individual churches to expand their worship ministry as needs arise.
  7. We will develop a Manual which details our worship philosophy and practical ways to achieve those objectives. Topics will include:
    1. How to design a successful worship as a worship leader.
    2. How to organize the songs into one coherent theme.
    3. How to master musical skills such as composition, transitions, modulations, and orchestration pertinent to a smooth worship.
    4. How to work with your pastors.
    5. How to work with volunteers and musicians.
