Evangelization with each performance

Collectif Cieux Ouverts - published on 03/14/17

Collectif Cieux Ouverts performances are like prayer communities

We believe that God is alive, constantly in motion, and that He is still speaking to us today.

Open Skies Collective offers concerts of worship music that is beautifully arranged and easy to sing along with. In fact, with a prayerful atmosphere and soothing melodies. they encourage their audiences to take part in the music, to sing along and praise the Lord together.

A large band that encompasses a rotating cast of what seems like a dozen or more members, with a core of 5, from all walks of the Christian faith, they also draw a wide range of Christian crowds. They play in both churches and more secular venues, efficiently spreading the Good Word with joyful, energetic performances.

They offer little information about individual members of the band, allowing greater focus to be placed on the content of their songs. Rather than bask in the spotlight, they would focus on evangelization:

We are a family of ministries from all the diversity of the body of Christ.We believe that God is alive, constantly in motion, and that He is still speaking to us today.

Our lives are overwhelmed by the revelation of the Father’s love, the Resurrection of Jesus Christ, and the person of the Holy Spirit.We want to serve the Church and help her to enter deeper into the glorious freedom that is ours as children of God.
