Exalt the Lord "PRAISE CAMP"

Release the Creativity in You

Does Your Child Enjoy Writing and Singing Songs? Drama & Skits? Dancing & Mime? Working with puppets? Playing A Musical Instrument? How about taking pictures or videos of special church events or even design creative Flyers or Church Websites Online?

If you answered YES to any of the above then, "PRAISE CAMP" IS FOR YOUR CHILD!"

1 In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. 2 And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was on the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved on the face of the waters." Gods spirit MOVED! How did he CREATE ? He SPOKE creation into existence! "God gave each one of us the ability "TO CREATE!" No one person has the exact same creative skills so we must come together as a symphony to make a beautiful sound, "a "joyful noise" and movements unto the Lord.

Genesis 3:8 And they heard the voice of the LORD God walking in the garden in the cool of the day: and Adam and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the LORD God among the trees of the garden.

How long have you been hiding the true creative gifting God has placed inside of you? Would you like to volunteer your time to teach children what you know? Do you want to leave behind a legacy that will continue to usher in Gods presence once you are present with him in heaven? Could you make a donation to aid in the success of this anointed God-given program? There is a part for us all to play but we must be willing and obedient so that our children do not continue to be lured in by the beats, lyrics and seductive dance moves in secular society.

How Will We Do It?


Psalms 150

Praise ye the Lord. Praise God in his sanctuary: praise him in the firmament of his power. 2 Praise him for his mighty acts: praise him according to his excellent greatness. 3 Praise him with the sound of the trumpet: praise him with the psaltery and harp. 4 Praise him with the timbrel and dance: praise him with stringed instruments and organs. 5 Praise him upon the loud cymbals: praise him upon the high sounding cymbals. 6 Let every thing that hath breath praise the Lord. Praise ye the Lord!

*Lyricists, Musicians, Dancers, etc volunteer to teach their gifting.

Why Will We Do It?

Proverbs 22:6 Train up a child in the way they should go and when they are ol they will not depart.

John 4:24 God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in TRUTH

Today, children of all races, genders and religions are being lured in by sensual lyrics, provocative dance moves and beats that steer them away from worshiping God the creator of heaven and earth. We were created to worship and glorify God and God alone through our creativity.

The WORLD is the truth with a LIE in it. Following the lies of the world only leads to a slow death. The WORD of God comes to bring life, it directs the hearer to the TRUTH. It does not destroy their souls. God's word through music brings life.

In John 14:6, Jesus said, "I am the way the TRUTH and the life no one comes to the Father but through me.

John 10:1 Jesus says, "Verily, truly I tell you, If anyone trys to enter the sheep pen other than through the gate he is a thief and a robber."

John 10:7 Jesus says, "Verily truly I say unto you, I am the gate for the sheep. Many have come before me who are thieves and robbers but the sheep did not listen. 8. I am the gate; whoever enters through me shall be saved."

John 10:10 says, "The thief (devil) cometh not but to steal kill and destroy but I (Christ) have come to give life and life more abundantly.

The WORD of God transforms a person tricked and seduced by the WORLDS lies. A person who was once a drug, sex or other addict in the WORLD is now changed into a "KINGDOM MAN OR WOMAN" who fears God because they know what it means not to have him first place in their lives.

We will not continue to allow the secularism of this world to contaminate our children. We will take a stand for holiness and purity now or they will stand for anything.

God uses the foolish to confound the wise. Many of us are NOT superstars or well known popular singers. We each have personal weaknesses. God wants to use both our strengths AND weaknesses to change this world!

What if Bebe & CeCe Winans, Billy Graham and other great Christian leaders had waited to present their gifting until they had perfected it? God perfects our weaknesses as we step out in faith depending on him and the Holy Spirit to get us through it! God specializes in turning weakness into strength!


Make A Joyful Noise Unto the Lord!

Our Mission

To train up the next Praise & Worship Leaders, Musicians, Dancers, Videographers, Photographers, Sound technicians, etc to present their giftings publicly in a holy, acceptable pleasing manor which will cause the anointing of God upon their lives to break every yoke and bondage as the sound of creation reverberates throughout the atmosphere.
