6 ‘M’s to Consider in Your Record Label or Music Ministry

[Read/Study/Understand and Apply Matthew 4:23-25, Mark 1:35-39, Luke 4:42-44]

 

By Apostle Ricardo Butler / ReAsOn DiSciPLe

 

A Short Story Intro

 

Jesus was on a mission with His Message of the Government of God, with a ministry that was healing and helping the people, which created word of mouth marketing that drew in crowds and multitudes of people into an apostolic movement.

 

Now you are probably asking, “Well where is the Davidic and the Music portion?”

 

Well that’s because it’s from and for my particular calling. As I have been studying in chronological and historical order from the beginning of the Life of Christ as we continue on to and through the Book of Acts. What I have been doing is reading and studying His life in such an order and seeking the Him for revelation concerning my call and the people in the music ministry, industry, and culture that I am sent to and called to serve. And finally, as I apply what I have been given, I have been reporting on the results or shall I say the fruit of my labor in Him.

What it do y’all!

This is your boy Ricardo Butler aka ReAsOn DiSciPLe and I am here today to drop part 2 in our series. We are continuing to talk about the type of artists that we are looking for to sign to our label and asking you to submit your music at the end.

In part 2 we talk more about the character traits and values that we are looking for in you as an artists, rather then the talent and skill that we covered in the last podcast.

So also stay tuned in, because I believe their will be a part 3 and 4 where I will discuss some of the information that we have put in our record contract (that’s the record deal itself). And I am doing this so you can qualify or disqualify yourself from the start before wasting your time sending me your mp3s or links to your website. So let’s get it!

SHAPE Pt 11 Using Five Fold Leadership Gifts in the Music Industry: The Teacher

SHAPE Pt 11 Using Five Fold Leadership Gifts in the Music Industry: The Teacher

This is the eleventh part of a mini-series of blog articles concerning how God designed you in His image. It’s called the SHAPE principle. I am pretty sure you have heard of it by Pastor Rick Warren from both his books The Purpose Driven Life and The Purpose Driven Church. But what I want to do now is see how we can apply the ministry or “body” gifts to the hip-hop ministry, industry, and culture.

 

“Oh yes, You SHAPED me first inside, then out;
You formed me in my mother’s womb.
I thank You, High God—You’re breathtaking!
Body and soul, I am marvelously made!
I worship in adoration—what a creation!
You know me inside and out,
You know every bone in my body;
You know exactly how I was made, bit by bit,
how I was sculpted from nothing into something.
Like an open book, You watched me grow from conception to birth;
all the stages of my life were spread out before You,
The days of my life all prepared
before I’d even lived one day.”
(Psalms 139:13-16, The Message).

 

Your ministry and business are an expression of not God, but of God working in you through your unique divine design and S.H.A.P.E., which are …

 

  • Spiritual gifts (Rom. 12:4-8; 1 Cor. 12:1-11, 28-31; Eph. 4:11-12),
  • Heart {passion, desire, burden, vision, mandate, cross, values, interests},
  • Ability {natural talent, skills, expertise},
  • Personality {temperaments: Driver, Expressive, Analytical, and Amiable},
  • Experiences {family, educational, occupational/vocational, spiritual, ministry, and painful}.

What’s good everybody!

 

Today’s podcast and next week’s podcast is, of course, a two (maybe even 3) part series. You will get to listen in and hear about the new labels called Davidical Arts Music Group & Dead To Flesh Records Inc.

I will be talking about what we expect of our artists, the type of music or sound we are looking for with our artists, a little bit about our mission.

And you will be given the opportunity to submit music after hearing this episode series for consideration to sign with this move of the Kingdom of God!

What’s good fam!

In this podcast I talk about all the terms (example, ‘holy hip-hop’, ‘Christian rap’, ‘Truth music’, ‘gospel rap’, etc) we call ourselves or shy away from, which does more harm then good and can cause division. In reality and biblically using the terms don’t harm us nor does lack of use either. According to Paul you can be all of these things. I talked a lot about this in my last blog post called, “Shaking Up Comfort Zones in the Music Industry”

[Read/Study/Understand & Apply Mark 1:21-28, Luke 4:31-37]

 

By Ricardo Butler / ReAsOn DiSciPLe

 

As I was reading the verses above for my devotional I finally got a revelation for the music industry (after about 3 weeks of studying just this particular story). I hate to try to force or figure out intellectually what to teach or share, so I wait for however long for the Lord to give me something before I write these types of blog articles.

 

The one thing that exploded revelation for me that got me writing right away was what the name of the village meant from the Greek. The word Capernaum” comes from two Hebrew words. “Caper” means, “a village (as protected by walls).” And “naum” comes from the name of the Prophet Nahum, which means, “comfortable.” Put it together means that these Galileans (which means again, ‘heathens circle’ or ‘gathering of non-believers’) felt protected and comfortable behind their personal space or personal walls. They were stuck in their own comfort zones.
