Hey saved family I am Bernard Osei, 20 years old, I currently attend Jersey City Branch in North America, and this is my creative corner.
When I first joined Lighthouse Chapel International, I was just a very young boy with no vision. I came to service and then went straight to Sunday school to receive free food. Little did I know, the music was drawing me closer to the church. Every sound that I heard from a guitar tickled my ear, the drums pounded in my stomach, causing it to vibrate.
After being established in the church, I developed a great desire to play the drums. Thinking that I was going to learn the drums, I began daydreaming of how I would look like banging on the cymbals. Luckily for me, these dreams of mine came to reality sooner than I thought. However, instead of the drums, I was instructed to learn the guitar. I became furious, but still content with the fact that I would be learning an instrument. Within 2 months of learning, I saw myself playing on weekday services. I was laughed at, and considered a small boy with a toy guitar. The pressure made my desire for the instrument grow and that is when everything fell into place. The guitar became my wife. There wasn’t a day whereby I wouldn't be seen with it. I then sought to learn other instruments after mastering the guitar. I was soon able to play the drums, the bass guitar, and the keyboard, just by knowing how to play guitar.
In addition to all this, I believe God opened my mind to be able to record music. Things that I had no idea how to do, within two days I was able to do. Because of the gift of instrumentation, God gave me the grace to get into digital media, video production, and music production. Now when I think about a beat to produce, I also begin to contemplate what type of video I can make to that beat.
My God-given talents have now opened doors for me, especially in Lighthouse Chapel International. By the grace of God, I have been given the opportunity to record songs written by our very own Reverend Francis Banfro, and I am currently a CEO of a production company that I believe God will use to reach out to this WORLD.
I continue to pray that God will give me the grace to use the gifts he has given me to glorify His name.
Here are some of the things that I have created...
