Omo Ba Ni: an exciting Nigerian song of welcome to Christ into our lives.

Jesus is a Rock: an original children’s stone passing game patterned after similar games sung in many traditional cultures. This inter-generational song/story/game has parts for adults as well as children, with the high school youth providing leadership.
