- The Connection reminds us that Jesus is the Word of God, in whose steps we are to follow.

To say that the GIPC Band is a unique ensemble is an understatement. The musicians are expert performers and have crafted these contributions to worship with the wisdom of their experience.
The GIPC Band includes Douglas Scott, concert pianist and organist, Motown cellist Michael Karoub, former Laith Al-Saadi band member, cellist Jordan Schug, jack-of-all-trades bassist Godfrey Porter, one of Detroit's most sought-after giging drummers, Jason Cassell, and the 2012 "Downriver Idol," songwriter, guitarist, and singer, Dave Martin. Backing vocals are expertly handled by GIPC members Derek Bolton and Tracey Alford. The album's closing (and only studio) track, "Ask" features lead vocals by 10-year-old Michigan Opera Theater Children's Chorus member Mia Martin.
Sunday Morning Live, Vol. 1 is still available!
