STORY | VISION & MISSION | PLANS
Malaysian Gospel Music (MGM) was founded in 2011 with the goal of advancing and raising the standard of Gospel Music in Malaysia and to create a platform for Malaysian Christian artistes to make an impact in our churches, culture and community. MGM is also a fellowship of Christian artistes, musicians, songwriters, producers, gathering together to mutually encourage one another for the work of the ministry through the medium of worship and music.
Through the years we have conducted and launched a number of events and projects in line with our vision such as concerts, workshops, showcases as well as producing our own albums. Since 2011, we've been organising concerts all across Malaysia to create a greater awareness of Malaysia gospel/christian music. In 2014, we launched our "School of Worship" with special guest Bob Fitts. SOW is designed to equip worship leaders and musicians from various churches in the area of worship, so that they can further influence the worship ministry and culture of their respective churches. We also produced our first ever album in 2011 and to date we have produced a total of 3 albums, consisting of all original songs written by Malaysian artistes.
MGM is constantly adapting and evolving to ensure it stays relevant across generations. Watch this space! Stay tune for more exciting news!
