Music & Future Initiative
Rev. Dr. David Choi
I am David Choi. I am the senior pastor and the director of the Music and Future Initiative at Hesperia United Methodist Church. Music has the power to bring people together and improve their lives in many ways. There are many poor people in the High Desert. The annual income of 73 percent of families in this area is below average and they cannot afford music lessons. So, we provide Free Music Lessons for the community. We have the mission that we help the community experience healing and restoration, find hope, and build careers for the future through this music program. I have been doing this ministry for over 20 years and have taught over 1,000 people in this country. We taught over 100 people online even during the pandemic. Some of them majored in music in college and work in the music industry. Many of them now experience healing and also build their careers with music. We provide this program Thursdays, and Fridays, from 4 – 7 pm. Each individual can receive the lessons for a maximum of two years. We are a partner of the California Pacific Conference, Hesperia School United District, Guitar Center, and Roll Rover Beethoven. We reach out to schools in the community so that more students could be beneficial. I think you can be a partner of this program and can work with us for the community. Will you partner with us?
