We have the amazing privilege of welcoming back Trevor Sampson to be with us again this July. He will be at Heritage of Faith on Sunday 27th July at both our 9.30am and 6.00pm services.
Trevor Sampson – an anointed singer, multi-instrumentalist, producer and sound engineer from Cape Town, South Africa – has been in full-time music ministry for 38 years. He started his journey of full-time music ministry with Youth For Christ, South Africa in 1980 and has since been allowed to minister from many of the world’s most desired gospel platforms.
For many years, Trevor has been a regular feature in the Billy Graham Global Satellite Link Up events as well as Franklin Graham’s Gospel Festivals. He was music director for Reinhard Bonnke’s Christ for All Nations evangelistic crusades and was music director and producer for Jesus Alive Ministries International’s television productions and regular crusades on the African continent for 12 years.
Trevor has recorded many churches live over the past 30 years, including the Rhema Bible Church in Johannesburg – the Praise Africa projects having been his brainchild as a worship facilitator there. He has vast experience in arts, sound engineering and recording and he continues to share this expertise with many at grassroots level through regular workshops and seminars. Through this, Trevor has become a mentor and father to many of South Africa’s young, up and coming artists.
Trevor is the founder of Restoring the Sound. A ministry that reaches out to young people in at risk communities through music training. With the help of London College of Music of which Trevor is a Fellow and representative, these youngsters are able to get formal music training and be examined on a twice yearly basis.
He has been happily married to his wife, Tricia for 31 years and they have three children together: Bianca-Maree, Jason and David who are all married. They have two grand sons Trevor and Tyson.
Jason and David have both been accepted to Berklee College of Music, in Boston, USA – a prestigious tertiary institution which is well known for it’s long list of successful musicians as alumni. Following the release of Jason’s debut album, Conscience, in 2011 Jason and David released their joint album “ Songs to withstand the storm Vol1&2 as The Sampson Brothers at the end of 2014. The album features a number of talented and influential South African music artists who support their intent to attend Berklee, including Janine Price, Victor Masondo, Barry Snyman and David Klassen.
Trevor Sampson and The Sampson Brothers have been on tour through Europe, Scandinavia, USA, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and the Caribbean during 2015. Since the beginning of 2016, Trevor has been busy recording his newest CD “ In Worship” which was produced by The Sampson Brothers at Sampsongs Studio.
Most of the year will be spent starting up new training opportunities for RTS in Rabie Ridge, our newest community of outreach.
Trevor and Tricia are also now the SA Representatives for Psalmody School of Worship. They have been teaching Psalmody for the past 30 years in an unofficial capacity. 2016 has been the year of implementing Psalmody as far and wide as possible as Trevor’s Music ministry would take him through South Africa.
Trevor and Tricia are active members at Acts Christian Church Midrand www.actschurch.co.za which is their base and sending church. A fast growing and very healthy church.
