THE GOLDEN ANGELS
The Golden Angels ministry is a full-time music missionary program, organized in 2004 by the Northern Asia Pacific Division of Seventh day Adventist church (NSD). The Golden Angels ministry was established to support the church planting project in NSD territory and to reach out to younger generations with distinctive music content based on Adventist beliefs. Each year, eight singing missionaries join and serve for one year. In addition, the Golden Angels ministry produces recordings and performance DVDs.
The Golden Angels-International is organized by the former members of the Golden Angels singers. The Golden Angels-International ministry hopes to reach people in the world through music and evangelism. The Golden Angels-International ministry is privileged to share their music with the members of Minnesota Conference and pray that the passion for mission will be rekindled by the music we share.
