MCCDC’s Music Ministry has, since the church’s founding, brought a spirit of excellent to the worship arts, not just for our local congregation but throughout the denomination. From our first music minister Carl Barnwell to our current Music Minister Justin Ritchie, we have been blessed with musical gifting in abundance. It is out of that tradition that we seek to usher in express the spirit of God in music and song.
Music Minister Justin Ritchie is some of the most cutting edge artists in their fields. Justin is a celebrated cabaret artist, popular in both Washington, DC and New York and a featured vocalist in the Gay Men’s Chorus of Washington.
The Music Ministry’s diversity of gifting, talent, leadership, and faith traditions affords us a breadth of sacred musical expression that is in many ways uncommon in Metropolitan Community Churches around the globe. Our musical expression range from traditional chorale, to traditional gospel, black gospel, and contemporary christian styles.
Metropolitan Community Churches hand selected the MCCDC Music Ministry to serve as the base choir for the 2013 General Conference, to be held in July 2013 in Chicago, Illinois. The 2013 General Conference promises to be the largest international gathering of MCCers in the denominations 40+ year history.
