Music Ministry


Eric and Joanne Kragenbrink – Music Directors

We love music! And we are very blessed to have a premium music ministry that leads our services every week. The Psalmist exhorts us to break out the guitars, flutes, trumpets, drums and a rabbi on the bass guitar (rough paraphrase!) All this is led by the Kragenbrinks who are recording artists and dedicated worship leaders. You will hear everything from Carlebach Chassidic tunes to Israeli traditional songs to modern Messianic jazz. You won’t want to miss our High Holy Day Choir either. Every song and meditation is meant to be a tool to draw us closer to the presence of God and every week this time is a great source of joy and encouragement.  A wonderful part of our music ministry is the outreach band called Zemer Yeshua (Hebrew for “Song of Yeshua/salvation).  This dynamic music group presents concerts in all sorts of venues including at community theaters, the San Diego County Fair (for the last 24 years!), conferences, college campuses and even at the local malls.  Be looking for their new CD of messianic worship coming soon!  We are always adding new dimensions to the music ministry. If you are gifted in this area or a vocalist, please talk to our Music Directors Eric and Joanne. “Sing to the Lord a new song!”
