Kings Ministries, UK

King’s Ministries is a praise and worship team whose purpose is to praise and worship God as an expression of their love and awe of Him. The group was founded in 2007 by Courtney King, a native of Birmingham, England and a young man with a desire not only to serve the Lord, but also to encourage young people all over the world that living for Jesus is fun, exciting and that it is possible in this day and age to have a relationship with God and to live for Him.

King's Ministeries consists of young vocalists and musicians from all walks of life and from different denominations and backgrounds, but with one thing in common - a heart of worship and a desire to see souls saved through their ministry. Guided by Matthew 4:10, the group believes that a life of praise and worship fills our deepest needs and brings great joy to God; that it is a condition of our hearts, a willingness to exalt God and yield to His will, for He alone is worthy of our devotion, praise and worship.

"We endeavour to be people of excellence! Our aim is to raise the standard of praise and worship not only in our local churches, but to have an impact in other places where we minister", says Courtney. "Whether you express your worship by singing, playing music, dancing or in some other way, remember that you are called to worship God with your every action, every day of your life. God is holy, loving, and worthy of all our worship and devotion. Give Him the highest praise."

November 2010 saw Courtney King and King's Ministries release their debut single In Your Presence, which is quickly becoming an anthem and one that people all over the UK have come to love after hearing it live at their concerts. Kings Ministries is currently concluding a UK Church tour which has proven to be a huge success. The group has established a strong following in their home city and surrounding areas and is now gaining followers from all over the country.

Noting that recording our songs remained only a thought until recently, Courtney adds: "This is a new season for King's Ministries and God has been opening so many doors for us. The single is only the beginning. The Church tour and the single are not one-offs. We will continue to travel, and travel further afield, and record more songs and the albums that God has given to us to bless His people."
