Nurses, students, professionals, single moms - 180 voices from 30 nations
Rain, hail or snow, the Times Square Church Choir ministers faithfully at three services every week at Times Square Church. Renewed through prayer, worship and testimony whenever they meet together, the choir is living proof of God’s promise that “he who refreshes others will himself be refreshed” (Prov. 11:25 NIV).
These volunteer ministers are nurses, students, law enforcers, business professionals, homemakers, laborers and single mothers. Their stories are vastly different, but the conclusion is always the same – God calls the weak, lifts them from despair and puts a new song of praise in their mouths.
Fully persuaded of the gospel of Jesus, the choir is determined to encourage everyone who will hear that God is forever worthy of trust and our very best worship…in life and in song.
Directed by Gregory Thomas, the 180-member Times Square Church Choir represents over 30 nationalities, reflecting the multinational, multicultural congregation of Times Square Church.
Whether you catch them at rehearsals, at "The Gate” youth service or on foreign soil on an international missions trip, the YPC’s passion for Jesus is contagious. Up for anything and everything, this praise choir is eager to show others the love of God... and singing is only the beginning.
At an annual street outreach in the Bronx, the YPC get their hands dirty in everything from face-painting to cotton candy to refereeing basketball. They want their generation to know that no matter where you come from and despite all stereotypes society puts on young people, that they have a future and a hope in Jesus Christ.
The bible verse printed on their choir shirts reminds them that this ministry is not just about great singing and songs of worship, but a radically different way of living. “Don’t let anyone think less of you because you are young. Be an example to all believers in what you say, in the way you live, in your love, your faith, and your purity.” (1 Tim 4:12)
Directed by Gregory Thomas, the YPC consists of approximately 85 voices from over 20 different nationalities, ranging in age from 13 to 30. They minister weekly at Times Square Church at the Sunday 3pm service and at “The Gate” youth service on Friday nights at 7pm.
What better way for children to testify of their simple faith in Jesus than in a choir just for kids! Directed by Larissa Cole, the KPC is an opportunity for children to grow in their faith and knowledge of God, participate in ministry and even learn about music and singing.
The KPC currently consists of 60+ children from first through eighth grade. They minister during service at Times Square Church approximately once per quarter, and participate in several community outreaches throughout the year.
