Ecclémusica 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."
We do this by various means, such as music training, theological seminars, concerts, camps, evangelistic recordings of Bible stories, and a music library.
