THE PRAISE AND WORSHIP OF SHEKINAH GLORY MINISTRY Shekinah Glory Ministry's ultimate purpose is reflected in the meaning of its name -- to usher listeners into the "very manifest presence of God." Shekinah Glory Ministry (SGM) is not comprised of "recording artists," but servants that worship every Sunday as the praise and worship aggregate of Valley Kingdom Ministries International, a non-denominational church in the Chicagoland area where Apostle H. Daniel Wilson serves as Senior Pastor.
This group of 21st century psalmists, minstrels, karar, encouragers and banner bearers, operate under the anointing of the Holy Spirit. Though they continue to minister each Sunday at their local church, SGM also has ministered with such renowned artists as Bishop T.D. Jakes, Pastor Donnie McClurkin, Fred Hammond & Radical for Christ, Albertina Walker, Kirk Franklin,
Yolanda Adams, Mary Mary, Cece Winans and Vickie Winans . . . to name a few. The ministry also has appeared on secular and ministry venues nationally and internationally -- including: New York's KISS-FM 9-11Unity Concert at Madison Square Garden, Sao Paulo Brazil's Pacembe Soccer Stadium, World Congress Center, T.D. Jakes' MEGAFEST in Atlanta,GA, Gospel Superfest
in New York, Million More March in Washington, DC (broadcast live on CNN and CSPAN), Stellar Award Showcase, Barbados
Gospelfest, TBN's Praise the Lord, Juanita Bynum's Threshing Floor and many other forums.
Shekinah Glory's worship style incorporates a unique variety of ballads and contemporary praise and worship selections.
Unrehearsed prophetic worship and spiritual warfare selections are birthed during their recordings and appearances.
The ministry has traveled nationally and internationally teaching local praise teams the songs of Shekinah Glory.
SGM's premiere recording, "Praise is What I Do" was certified Gold by RIAA and is reaching Platinum. The PIWID concept video has appeared on BET Gospel and Lift Every Voice. Ultimately, the CD received local, national and international success and was included on the WOW Gospel 2003 CD which was certified Gold and Platinum.
SGM's second live praise and worship double CD, SHEKINAH GLORY MINISTRY LIVE, was released and immediately hit
BILLBOARD charts where it remained for over 103 weeks and has reached gold status. Praise and worship songs from this
release, including "YES" and "HIGHER" are still being played across the nation on independent and syndicated radio stations. This project also earned SGM nominations as a finalist for the 2005-06 Stellar Awards in the category of "CHOIR OF THE YEAR."
Shekinah Glory Ministry was blessed to sing on two exclusive BET events; The Bobby Jones Gospel and Celebration of Gospel hosted by Steve Harvey.
Shekinah Glory Ministry's new live recording, "JESUS", will be in stores on September 25th.
Shekinah Glory Ministry is dedicated to "piercing the kingdom of darkness and enlarging the Kingdom of God."
