Asaph Music International set to stage 12-hour worship and praise

Asaph Music International, one of the most powerful and popular music groups in Rwanda, is set to host 12-hour-moment of worship and praise this Friday, March 31.

The event will take place at Zion Temple Gatenga from 6 pm to 6 am. The authentic praise and worship will be held under the theme, “Rebuilding the altar of worship in our hearts.”

According to the Choir, the 12 hours of worship and praise will be a special moment to proclaim the goodness of God and plea for a flame of worship in the hearts of believers. Asaph will hold this moment alongside other worshippers including Gisubizo and Kingdom of God Ministries, Asaph Gisozi, Rubirizi and Kibagabaga as well as Zion Temple Gatenga Drama team.

Based at Zion Temple Celebration Center and Authentic Word Ministries, Asaph Music International was born out of the revelation of Apostle Dr. Paul Gitwaza in 1999 to create a group of worshippers who worship God for 24 hours without ceasing.

Since its inception, the choir has extensively made an impact and improvement in the gospel music in the country by raising a big number of popular and professional musicians such as Aime Uwimana, Aline Gahongayire and Richard Ngendahayo among others. Its music has been touching the lives of many believers and non-believers.

At the beginning, the team started with less than 20 members but has grown to over 250 members in Rwanda in addition to new branches established in 140 countries worldwide.

Pastor Ernest Nkubana, the Overseer of Asaph Music Internal worldwide, expressed the choir’s felicity over the years of serving as he addressed the media on Wednesday, March 29 in Kigali.

Nkubana said that Asaph Music International is very grateful for God’s protection to keep the team functional till today.

He explained that Asaph is called to worship for 24 hours without ceasing; adding that every hour of the day has a special group who worships rotationally.

“Worship happens between a worshipper and God. When we worship, we come before God and proclaim His character. Worship should be our lifestyle and should start in secret places before we worship in public,” Nkubana pointed out.

He described the 12 hours of worship and praise to be unique since it will be an intensive fellowship with Heavenly father.

Recently, the choir released a new video song titled, “Umunezero w’Agakiza”. Last year, Asaph Music International released 12 albums and they plan to release 1 live recorded song every two months.
