On July 15, the Strikeforce held its first evangelistic concert at its former studio in Richfield Industrial Centre, which attracted an audience of more than 60. The performance was an incorporation of percussive sequences using the various instruments to create a more exciting and wholesome praise and worship atmosphere.
This was the beginning of a new vision that was birthed by the Strikeforce earlier this year—to complement evangelistic meetings with their unique brand of music alongside the preaching of the Word and sharing of testimonies. Dubbed the Strikeforce Mission Trip, or SFMT, the vibrant group of percussionists aims to go on mission trips around the world and use their unique brand of music to spread God’s love and present the message of salvation in a more creative manner. It will include a six-piece praise and worship music team and an additional six drummers who will be solely involved in creative percussive sequences.
The Strikeforce kicked off its first SFMT concept show in July with an introductory video, followed by creative praise and worship, with the Strikeforce infusing percussive sequences using various instruments to liven up the praise and worship atmosphere. Fresh arrangements were made for songs such as “Hosanna,” “Our God Is An Awesome God,” and Kari Jobe’s “You Are For Me.” SFMT also did an unplugged version of Katy Perry’s “Fireworks,” which was accompanied by a video of Bible verses screened on the wall during the song, reminding everyone how life is not a waste and with God all things are possible.
The audience was engaged throughout the praise and worship session, singing, dancing and raising their hands. The Strikeforce also paid tribute to their guests with a brand new percussion performance.
Following that, a Strikeforce member came on stage to share his testimony of how God changed his life and his family. Choong Tsih-Ming, a pastor from City Harvest Church, shared an encouraging message to all. The meeting concluded with the Strikeforce leading the crowd in an uplifting rendition of the song “Tell The World,” as everyone participated enthusiastically with claps and cheers.
Choong commented that SFMT was a fresh and fantastic idea. “I think it will be a hit among young people who want a touch of God and something fresh,” he said. Others who were present at the performance enjoyed the show tremendously and were supportive of the Strikeforce’s new vision. David E.C.D, 41, a member from CHC, noted, “This is the genesis of something new and there is a tangible presence here that can touch many people.”
With its first concept show out, the Strikeforce will be traveling to churches around the world and taking the ministry to the next level with their God-given talents.
