New Creation Church acknowledges the shared talents of their music ministry, all headed by Minister of Music, Michael Sanders. This is the 4th Album that he has produced at New Creation Church.
Michael's love for music began at a very young age. Although his start was as a drummer, he later developed a strong talent playing the piano and organ. He then began writing songs. Others recognized his talent so he started to work with choirs in San Diego and Los Angeles, CA. This led him to other opportunities; working with renowned artists. He is now the Minister of Music at New Creation Church; known to be one of the largest ministries in San Diego, CA.
Through each experience, he has become tremendously skilled in music production. Although he is known to be very talented, he also recognizes when others are talented as well.
