During the earlier years of our church the music department was organized with a handful of
youth enticed with the promise of ice cream and cake by Evangelist Ida Blaine in exchange for their
voices on Sunday mornings to sing praises of God. This sounded like a good bargain and so began
the Greater Deliverance Church of God In Christ music department. At that time Pastor John Little
& Evangelist ViCurtis Little was our organist, pianist and director. The 5 of us sang our little hearts out.
Over the years as the church grew the music department grew as well. Positions changed and music
ministries were birthed.  Under the leadership of Elder Robert Deshay, Sr. the Lord has blessed us to have
4 choir ministries which are the John I. Little Chorale, the ViCurtis Youth Chorale, the Men’s Choir and
the Joint Choir. Also apart of the music department is the Perfected Praise dance ministry, and the Broken
Vessels mime ministry, Stomps of Praise, Drama ministry and the media center.
