On the 5th of October Trevor Sampson and his band joined us all at the Noupoort Christian Care Centre for an awesome praise and worship session.
TREVOR SAMPSON is one of South Africa’s top Gospel artists. Not only is he a familiar guest in local churches and Christian conventions but he is also a well known face on national television music programmes.
Trevor also has a well established reputation as a producer and arranger for other Gospel artists. Trevor has been in full time music ministry for 27 years after he joined Youth for Christ’s international music team in 1980.
He is an ordained minister, enjoys teaching and preaching and has a strong prophetic ministry, operating in the Gifts of the Holy Spirit. Trevor aims to build up Christians, particularly to come into the fullest realm of worship possible.
He loves to train and encourage worship leaders, musicians and whole congregations to move into a deeper personal relationship with God.
His lifestyle is that of a joyful worshipper. He practices what he preaches and he has a strong desire to do what the Word of God says in the Psalms. Besides ministering in churches, he is also very much at home in schools, on street corners, coffee bars and concert halls, attracting unbelievers to Christ through his music.
He believes the opportunities into the secular music scene enable him to be a light amongst the “so called stars”. At these events he is still recognised and introduced as a Gospel singer.
He does occasional secular singing for various TV music specials and is a regular guest at the annual Johannesburg Pops events, performing with the South African National Symphonic Orchestra.
