Please join us at Sola Fide for a concert by the band Koiné as they tour Florida and Georgia this month. Koiné is a group of WELS musicians from the Milwaukee, WI area. It specializes in producing music and artwork in a variety of media that can be used in the church.
Koiné is a Greek word that means “common.” They play common instruments and common hymns that many know and enjoy. The only extraordinary thing about Koiné and what they do is the message that they proclaim through the music they play. It’s the same message of the Bible – Jesus Christ is the Savior of the world.
Koiné Music Ministries is a 501(c)(3) non-profit ministry whose main source of support is the generosity of local churches and WELS members like you. Koiné Music Ministries has partnered with Wisconsin Lutheran College and Christian Family Solutions as they share the mission and purpose of each institution through their many travels. For more information about either school, visit their websites: www.wlc.edu and http://christianfamilysolutions.org
Throughout the year Koiné travels to 200 churches, schools, and events across the United States. From Seattle to Miami and everywhere in between, Koiné travels to share God’s saving message through music. In addition to playing concerts and services, Koiné serves the church by making their music available on recordings, sheet music, and non-vocal CDs, which are often used by grade school and Sunday school teachers to teach hymns to children.
The group consists of: Brian Davison – vocals, Shelly Willis – vocals, Seth Bauer – piano, Seth Kock – drums, Benj Lawrenz – guitar, and Matt Scott – bass.
