What if the greatest music in the world was birthed out of the Church like it once was?  What if the world looked to the Church instead of the other way around?  What if Christian music was simply defined as music made by Christians?

This is the passion and vision of Hope Music Academy, which seeks to serve kids, ministries, worship teams, and recording artists as they seek to impact the world through music and the Gospel of Christ. 

 The Academy is made up of three main parts: Music Lessons, Recording Studio, and Concerts
