Jamaican Ministry Starts Live Weekly Internet Broadcast
The Kom Mek Wi Worship Series Brings Together Believers From Across the World
Since MIWC Associate Jo-Ann Richards Goffe began her full-time ministry in Jamaica at the start of the year, her passion to spread Christ's message through heart language and music has found a global audience.
Her ministry, CREW 40:4, recently launched a newly designed web site and YouTube channel and maintains active social media accounts on Twitter and Facebook.
Thanks to technology offered by Facebook and the technical savvy of CREW 40:4's newest team member, Josh Celli, Richards has been broadcasting live every Monday at 9 p.m. EST.
"We call it the Monday Night LIVE Kom Mek Wi [Come Let Us] Worship Series," Richards explains.
"People from different parts of the world gather with me to worship, singing (last Monday, in at least five languages!), testifying, and reading Scriptures in English and Jamaican ... and sometimes Spanish. We have had persons from different parts of the USA, from England, Barbados, Brazil, Costa Rica, Grand Cayman, Grenada, India, Burkina Faso, and I’m sure other places that I didn’t pick up. Glory to God!"
The program features songs from Richards' album Kom Mek Wi Worship and stories from the scriptures behind them.
In addition to the weekly live broadcasts, Richards posts new videos daily of readings from the Jamaican New Testament, commonly known as the Patwa Bible.
She and the CREW 40:4 band have had a busy fall schedule, visiting different churches weekly, introducing believers to worship songs crafted in their own heart language and musical style. Band members not only play instruments and sing, but contribute songwriting, dub poetry, drama and more to CREW's vision of spreading the tools for authentic worship in Jamaica, the Caribbean and beyond.
