Gospel Ensemble

 

Gospel Ensemble

The MBI Gospel Ensemble uses music to share the good news of Jesus Christ. The group is comprised of a choir and a band, and members are exposed to many different styles of gospel music. This ensemble places an emphasis on the Word of God and conveying love through a ministerial message of praise and worship.

The repertoire of this fully accredited gospel ensemble consists of both traditional and contemporary gospel styles. The Gospel Ensemble performs concerts in the Chicagoland area at churches, schools, and organizations.
