MOBO AWARD-WINNING GOSPEL BRINGS MEN TOGETHER
The Dugdale Centre in Enfield came alive, as it played host to the Mighty Men Choir, comprised of the UK’s top gospel and inspirational singers, who had joined together to record the charity single, ‘Keep Fighting’.
MOBO Award-winning gospel artist, Lurine Cato, is the brainchild behind the choir, which marks the start of a year-long project called ‘The Mighty Men Experience’, aiming to celebrate men.
Lurine co-wrote the song with Ian Green. She shared, “‘Keep Fighting’ is a song to uplift, encourage and give hope to men, because there seems to be a rise in negative reporting about men, and those who are role models are not being highlighted enough.” The single is being jointly produced by Green with international hit-maker, Marcus Johnson.
Singers featured in the choir include MOBO Award-winning gospel artists, Isaiah Raymond and Faithchild, Mark Beswick, Tony Momrelle, Aaron T Aaron, Ibe and Dayo Bello. They were directed by international choir director, Solomon Facey.
‘Keep Fighting’ is due out later this spring; it is part of an initiative being undertaken by Ms Cato to organise a major concert to promote and support men in society. Watch this space for more information.

LEADERS EQUIPPED FOR 21ST CENTURY MINISTRY AT NTCG CONFERENCE
Over 500 Christian ministers from across the denominational spectrum were present at the New Testament Church of God’s (NTCG) Pastors and Key Leaders (PKL) Conference, held at Bethel Convention Centre in West Bromwich.
Guest speakers included Dr Hugh Blair, Senior Pastor of COG Baltimore and Bishop Lennox Walker, National Overseer of the COG Canada. Topics covered during the three-day event included ‘Effective Pastoral Ministry’, ‘Using Social Media as an Evangelism Tool’ and ‘Models for Church Growth in the 21st Century’.
The Leadership Conference was the first Bishop Donald Bolt had attended in his new role as National Overseer of NTCG. He used the PKL to launch his vision document, entitled Mission and Ministry Christ-Centred. In it, Bishop Bolt touched on seven key areas: Evangelism and Church Planting, Communication, Pastoral Responsibility, Social Responsibility, Discipleship, Organisational Development and Leadership Development.
Lay members will get an opportunity to hear Bishop Bolt present his vision at the National Convention in July.
