Let the word of Christ dwell richly in you richly, teaching and admonishing one another in all wisdom, singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, with thankfulness in your hearts to God.
is a non-profit organization that was founded in Paris, France on May 24, 2013.
The goal of the Ecclémusica team is to help equip French-speaking local churches in both sacred music and evangelism. This two-part goal is found in Psalm 96, verses 1 and 3 : « Sing unto the Lord a new song… Declare His glory among the nations. »
Ecclémusica serves local churches by organizing special seminars, conferences, and workshops, by producing and promoting evangelistic CDs of Bible stories for children, and through other means.
