By and by the lifting up of our Maker (God) through worship and praises never ceases to amaze many since it touches the heart of God dearly and ushers us into His awesome presence.
The birth of a divine ministry is here, the unveiling of an instrumental vessel awaits us. Closer to Thee is the ulterior motive and that forevermore.
“CLOSER 2017” is the second edition of a worship, praises and live DVD recording musical concert which comes off on Sunday, July 16, 2017 at PIWC Odorkor, Awoshie- Onyinase, 4pm prompt.
Ephraim Opare Som, a final year student of the Pentecost University College and a member of Christ Compassion Ministries (CCM), is the vessel prepared and inspired by God to spearhead this concert.
Ministry for him started with playing of instruments (drums specifically) at a very tender age alongside other instruments like the piano and bass guitar. Little did he know he carried in him a broader ministry aside being only an instrumentalist.
After Junior High School (JHS) in the year 2010, Ephraim was in a singing group named “Shining Stars” as a drummer and at a point decided to join the singers in that group irrespective of his little knowledge and experience in singing due to the large number of drummers the group had.
That was when his passion for singing was discovered. He took this opportunity to learn some basic techniques in singing and to build himself up. Gradually, he became the praises and worship leader for his church, music director in school, and currently the leader of Cindy Thompson’s band as well as President of the Mass Choir of Pentecost University College.
All to the glory of the Almighty God, Ephraim Opare Ministries (EOM) has grown from grace to grace since then till date. Ephraim Opare Ministries (EOM) is a team made of his band (instrumentalists and vocalists), and management body attending to the day to day affairs of the team from planning, to the implementation of an idea.
Featuring on “CLOSER 2017” are seasoned ministers like Cindy Thompson, Pastor Isaiah Fosu Kwakye Jnr. and Chris Appau. The first edition of CLOSER which took place on Sunday, July 19, 2015 at the premises of his church CCM, Bubuashie was spirit- filled, this maiden edition will be spectacular. Come and encounter the Great One.
