"Praise In Song" is a musical worship service designed to focus on the LORD Jesus and to lead people in worship and in praise to the LORD " in the beauty of holiness." (Psalm 96:7-9)
The Praise In Song service is a complete worship service with much audience participation, and the presenter singing and proclaiming the Word of God. At the end of each service a silent invitation is given relating to commitment to Christ.
Music In Worship Seminars
The music part of worship is a vital, funda-mental part of worship. In these exciting Seminars we learn what the Bible teaches about the origins of music and the vital roll that music plays in the service of worship. We also learn what the Bible teaches about the significance of preparation for ministering in the service of worship, and, the how of that preparation. A syllabus is provided with room for extensive note taking.
Our mission is to provide funding for unbudgeted missions needs. Helping Missionaries, Missions organizations and Native Missionaries to fulfill their mission by providing funds, not otherwise available, for those activities. Simply, "we minister to those who minister."
REACHING is Currently involved in three Missions works:
1. The Bethel Bible Institute in Myanmar, formerly Burma, - Providing Scholarship funds for students who cannot raise the needed money for tuition and school expenses. Tuition and expenses come to about $50 US per month.
3. Sending native Missionaries throughout India, graduates from Maranatha Baptist Bible College in Bangalroe India. These Missionaries have graduated with a minimum of a B.th degree and are eager to fulfill the Great Commission to their Native peoples. They are involved in Evangelism, Pastoring, disciplining, children's work and Church Planting.
The cost of providing for a single Missionary is $100 US per month. A married couple would need $150 to $200 US per month according to size of family. You may sponsor a Native Missionary for as little as $30 per month.

Members of the Board receive no remuneration for their services. Overhead expenses are met through undesignated gifts and through undesignated offerings received at Praise in Song services and other presentations. If there is a surplus in the General fund, a portion of that is moved into the missions fund. Board members also pay many of the overhead expenses out of their own funds, thus 100% of all designated funds are used for their designated purpose.
