About the Messengers
This group began over 40 years ago in Centreville, Illinois when most of its members were still in elementary and high school. Today God is effectively using them to cover the globe with the impact of His power to set the captive free. Their original music remains freshly anointed and has been shared across the U.S., and overseas in numerous third-world nations.
They have written over 300 original compositions. Their first recording was done in 1978 in the form of a 45 record, “You Can Count On Him” and “He Did It All For Me”. During those early years, very few young people were doing religious recordings and even fewer were as dedicated and focused as The Messengers. They spent entire summers in prayer, fasting and outreach. In 1980 they produced an album “Heaven Bound” and later in 1985 did their first live recording, “Unity in the Spirit”. This recording was produced by St. Paul Bible College in Minnesota and was used as a witnessing tool for its campus. Much later in 1994, a studio audiocassette tape was released, “Heaven”. Throughout the years unlimited concerts of ministry have been sponsored and their lst Christmas CD “Jesus, the Perfect Gift” was released in 2016.
Wilma and the Messengers are known for reaching out to the poor, street crusades, and discipleship to major level five prison institutions. The word of the Lord preached from these six ministers is seasonal, the music is prophetic, and the glory of God is powerfully present in their concerts.
The group consists of Wilma and her husband Howard, Wilma's sister and brother Tessa and Michael, her brother-in-law Wesley, and a dear friend Herbert. In addition to their concerts and preaching, they also provide workshops to various praise and worship teams via Praise and Worship Symposiums. Believing that music should not only be a skill, but also house the anointing of God to destroy and break yokes. Because of this belief, they endeavor to share lessons they have learned to other praise and worship leaders within the Body of Christ.
If they are ever in your area, please make arrangements to attend their anointed praise and worship services; you won't be disappointed!
