Abstract or Introduction
It is undeniable that music plays a significant role in church development and growth. The main objective of this research was to explore the impact of music in facilitating development and growth in the church and used Highfield Church of Christ (HCOC) as a case study.
The research gives a brief summary of the history of HCOC as its view of music could have hardly been understood without first tracing the historical context. The research also traced the use of music in the Old Testament, New Testament, church history and in African Traditional Religion to see how the use of music during those ages impacts church music today.
The Natural Church Development (NCD) Model and the Bonsai Theory of Church Growth are theoretical frameworks which were used to inform the study. To collect data, the researcher used questionnaires, interviews and observation.
