Black Gospel Music is a musical genre or style of
music that continues to become a powerful force in the
music and culture of America and even the world.
A Clef is defined by Webster
"A sign placed at the beginning of a musical staff
to determine the pitch of the notes".
Gospel music has reached a pitch where the lines
between sacred and secular have been blurred. In our zeal
and under the guise to "reach the lost at any cost", the
message of the pure gospel is being compromised time and

Our ministry purpose here is two-fold:
First and foremost it is to please God and to
promote the gospel music ministries of those who

Secondly, it is to
provide a distinctive ministry resource with a Godly
standard for those who participate in, listen to,
and support this genre of music. (II Corinthians 6:14-17)
