New York City is known to be a place where wonderful musical gifts are bred. The Lord continually raises up new ministries that bring forth a fresh sound proclaiming the kingdom of God. Destiny Music Group (DMG) is one such ministry. They are the end result of the vision of Gary Coach Jr. Gary is the organist at Destiny Christian Center, where his father Bishop Gary Coach Sr. is pastor. Gary tells of his father forcing him to learn how to play organ when he was 18 years old, because a need for it existed. Although quite nervous at first, Gary admits that “with much prayer it became second nature and now I love it.”
A serious music ministry is a huge undertaking and takes a healthy degree of motivation. “My inspiration to starting DMG was when God allowed my friends to inspire me start a music group, My initial thoughts were to provide an outlook in which my peers could express themselves through the art. I chose the name Destiny music group because it lined up with the vision of my father’s, and plus it has a nice ring to it.” The group consists of many members who contribute to the ministry through playing, arranging (vocally/musically), and song writing.
DMG is a body of gifted individuals who have corporately decided to exercise these artistic abilities to fulfill their God given Destiny
The group currently has two singles out now, with more on the way. The array of talented songwriters within the group continue to spark creativity and messages for God’s people. The first single ‘Wanna Go To Heaven’ was co-written by Gary himself. “The goal of DMG is not only to provide an artistic outlet, but also to uplift the body of Christ.” One of the beauties of DMG is the musicality is not compromised as the lyrics are poignant and powerful. A definite message is conveyed within each song and truly encourages the believer.
The Bible declares that a man’s work speaks for him even after he is dead. Thus, nothing we do in this journey called life should only have an effect for today. “I want DMG to be remembered many years from now as a group that made music, but was still down to earth and furthered the Kingdom of God.” , said Gary. As the Lord continues to bless DMG, they shall continue to press forward making the Master proud. A compilation record and a few new artists are presently in the works, to be released later this year.
The summer shall be busy for DMG, so keep up to date by following them on the various social media platforms. Let us all take heed to follow our hearts and guidance from God to fulfill OUR destiny!
