It all started with a vision that music and the arts should be more than just entertainment...that the Christian artist should always seek to Serve God's Word with his talents, whether in sacred or secular settings. As a result, we believe people are able to encounter moments of truth and beauty with us, no matter where they are on their spiritual journey. Since 2006, Music Serving the Word Ministries (MSW) has presented unique events, creatively blending spoken word, original music and impactful visuals. Today, MSW equips a variety of creative artists and ministries to live out what God is calling them to do.
Our Core Focus
Serving God's Word means following the prompting of God in everything we do. We know this only happens as a result of being in relationship with Christ. We believe the closer we are to God, the more He will use our talents and skills to bring Him glory and to build up His Kingdom.
The MSW team is comprised of creatives, administrators, visionaries, artists, dreamers, and shepherds who desire to see this mission spread and be multiplied around the world.
Bob & Gretchen Ravenscroft
For decades, Bob and Gretchen have been committed to the cause of Christ, the renewal of worship, and to supporting music and the arts that serve God's Word. An able and avid teacher, Bob has served on several university jazz studies faculties over the years. Additionally, he toured for a decade with the Christian ministry "Majesty," and recorded an improvised musical and inspirational podcast called " Morning Glories." He occasionally performs solo, or with his group, The Bob Ravenscroft Trio. Transcending mere performance, Bob is always in pursuit of that special place where, as he says, "music serves the Word."
