christian_musicGod created music for us to enjoy and to build us up to have a closer fellowship with Him. Unfortunately, Satan hates this. In fact he wants the opposite, a drawing away from God. Now, if Satan was the Choir master in heaven do you think he knows a little bit about music? And if he knew the thing about music, we believe that this music is one of the greatest attacks from Satan and one that is probably closest to our hearts.

Jade Wales

Jade_Wales_PictJade is a young man who is on fire for God and His word, but it didn’t always use to be like that. Before he was just like any other young teenager who just wanted to do things his own way. He had no real direction in life and didn’t think much of school or a higher education.

Until one day he came to a youth group that would change his life forever! As he worked for the Lord and started to see the effects that it had on other people’s lives, slowly but surely his life started to change as well. Until, without realising it, he became on fire for God and His word.

He developed a love and passion for heavenly music. The Lord has impressed Jade to begin a ministry called Endeavor Productions. The Lord has blessed Jade with an amazing talent to play, sing, and record music, and now he is sharing that talent with the world!
