Are you a Christian music artist looking to have a broader platform to share you music? Do you want to help the church fight the sexual temptations that abound in our culture? Visit CovenantMusicians.com and find out how you can join this cause.

CovenantMusicians.com exists to help Christian musicians to live and preach the words of the apostle Paul:

“Among you there must not be even a hint of sexual immorality, or of any kind of impurity, or of greed, because these are improper for God’s holy people. . . . For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Live as children of light—for the fruit of the light consists in all goodness, righteousness and truth—and find out what pleases the Lord. Have nothing to do with the fruitless deeds of darkness, but rather expose them.

  • “Not Even a Hint” – This is God’s standard for the church. Often it’s the little compromises, the undetectable sins, the sins hidden in secrecy that cause the greatest pain. Momentary glances can turn to lust, lust can turn to a thirst for more lustful images, and this can turn into all sorts of sexual sin. As the church we need to fight this temptation at the root.
  • “Live as Children of Light” – Living in the light does not mean living perfectly, but living honestly, out in the open. When we live in the light it means honesty about our weaknesses, struggles, temptations, and sins, confessing them to God and other trusted people in the church, and becoming accountable for the sins that so easily entangle us.
  • “Expose Them” – It is a powerful moment when we go from being enslaved by a sin to exposing the evil of it to others and helping them to break free. This is what Covenant Musicians is all about: equipping and giving a platform to Christian musicians who want to expose the evil of lust, pornography, and sexualized media.

CovenantMusicians.com came about when the ministry of Covenant Eyes started working together with other ministries like Indieheaven and Sermon.net to bring resources to musicians in order to empower them to be spokespersons for purity, accountability, and wholehearted faithfulness to Christ. As the list of partnering ministries continues to grow, our hope is to give Christian musicians a platform and a strategy to encourage the church in these ways.
