about the cac national choir
the cac national choir
The CAC National Choir is directed by Pastor Tope Dada, a veteran music minister with at least 1,500 compositions in his repertoire.
The Choir is drawn from several CAC churches and has performed at several concerts and crusades. Hymns, compositions by its members and other musical arrangements make up a major part of its ministrations.
The Choir can make its boast in the Lord’s goodness, and continue to yearn for His grace and guidance in their ministry. The Choir seeks to worship the Lord in the beauty of Holiness and make His praise known in all the earth. That burdens be lifted and souls be saved to a wholesome life in Christ Jesus is our utmost desire.
