Gina Hendrickson has a love for the word of God and love for music and enjoys sharing both these loves. She credits her up-bringing for this. Gina came to New York at the age of three from the country of Trinidad and Tobago. She recalls having prayer every morning and family worship every evening. For a time these meetings included church elders and scholars who discussed the "breath of life" and "man became a living soul." Her mother was a pianist, and at age seven Gina was taught to also play the piano. Her musical career continued, and Gina joined the school choirs from elementary school through high school. Starting in college, Gina began her singing career performing in a variety of productions, benefit concerts, and choirs. She has served as the choir director of various choirs and had the opportunity to be part of the music department of New York Christian Cultural Center (CCC). There she had the privilege of participating in two gospel albums. Gina credits CCC's two lead ministers, Senior Pastor Dr. A.R. Bernard and Reverend Pointer, for inspiring her to discover her core values and purpose: A commitment to excellence and a career of service using her gifts, talents, and abilities in accordance with the Lord's divine plan. Gina is currently a member of World Changers Church New York, where she is learning to "Practice His Presence." She believes that the best is yet to come! The goal of Gina's ministry is to provoke thought and provide a sanctified atmosphere through a spiritual flow of praise and worship that evokes the manifested presence of God through inspirational music. She has a passion for the ministry and is convinced that her steps have been ordered by the Lord.
