CPC Ministries (short for Cuerdas para Cristo) is dedicated to producing professional violinists and cellists for the music ministry in God's Kingdom. We strive for them to know God intimately through praise, worship, and prayer. We want to facilitate their participation with the rest of the band and give them a larger role in all styles of music using both acoustic and electric violins and cellos with all sorts of effects pedals and bowing techniques. We also want them to know how to minister spiritually with their instruments to believers and unbelievers alike and in this way expand God's Kingdom.

Well, the band is back. Last Saturday we had a youth service in which I was glad to play my electric violin. Last Sunday, the band played for the whole song service and did a great job. I'm really glad that we are training musicians in our church. On Sunday I also did a mini presentation with a couple violin students. Here's a video someone took of it:

Perpetual Motion (the first tune) turned out funny because for some reason, they kept speeding up.
I felt bad that a lot of my students couldn't make it to the rehearsal because they had other things going on. I pray that they can make it next time.

Starting a couple of weeks ago, I have had JoaquĆ­n take over the teaching of music theory to the other students. Since I've done so, the attendance in that class has improved much. I think this is an important part in the progress of this ministry: delegating responsibilities. This way the more advanced students who worked hard to get to where they're at feel more useful and valuable.
