This year as we celebrate 12 years of exciting worship, we want
you join us by bringing the saved and unsaved to the June and
November events. We want you to come, receive, leave empowered
and, go back to your respective places worship and let the contagious
power of worship spread amongst your brothers and sisters. This
is what I love about tehillah, it's about Jesus and empowerment
as well as fun!!!
Tehillah Tehillah Tehillah. Thatís the call
I hear. I have a vision of souls just worshipping till they drop!
No not till they drop, just endlessly, in such a manner that they
donít know when or how to stop. God is awesome and His Son, Jesus
the Christ is awesome, patient, understanding and has so much
belief in our ability to do the right thing, that itís amazing.
. I marvel
at the works of His hands and why He loves me the way He does.
When I fail Him and others, He doesnít condemn me, but says ďget
up and letís move onĒ. Notice, its not ďget up and you
move onĒ but ďletís move onĒ. He wrestles with me against
my enemies whatever shape they may take.
I'm Selvyn Wright, the organiser of Tehillah
and formerly the Elder of the Church of the King of Kings in Birmingham,
UK. I have been a leader within the church for many years and
thank God for the privilege in being able to serve His people.
For many years I had a vision of Christians from all denominations
and creeds coming together as one to worship our Lord and Saviour
Jesus the Christ. In January of 2000 during a church meeting,
we were discussing individual goals for the year. When it came
to me to speak, I spoke of the vision that I had for many years.
The folks of the church all expressed an interest in such an event
and one of the other Elders said I should go for it.
So often we have dreams and desires, but talk ourselves out of
them. I had done this for many years, not believing that the God
whom I love to worship was talking to me about this ministry and
it was someone elses calling, or in the gift that He had placed
within me. It took the members of the church to remind me that
Yahweh is able and willing to do in us all that He has purposed
for us to do! So in February 2000 I put into motion the plans
for an event that would slowly change and charge the atmosphere
of the city of Birmingham. On September 22nd the first Tehillah
took place. We had in attendance about 100 people. It was a great
night and it was clearly evident that something unique had been
birthed. Since that event took place we have run a number of Tehillahs
at the Adrian Boult Hall and have recently moved to the Great
Hall at Aston University.
Tehillah is about the Lord (Yahweh). It's about learning how to
worship Him if you didn't already know. And if you believe you
know, it's about doing more of it. It's about recognising that
church isn't about turning up on Sunday morning and expecting
the worship team to warm you up, but coming to church with a song
already in your heart and being prepared to minister unto the
Lord and in doing so, allowing Him to minister unto you. It's
about recognising that worship is not just singing songs, but
it's a lifestyle. True worship comes out of a life that has been
soaked in adoration and continual communion with the True and
Living God, Yahweh. What a privilege it is that through our Lord
and Saviour Jesus we can do this without fear, intimidation and
