Tim Bowman Jr. (Music)
It’s not often that it happens. But once in a while a young artist comes along with the skill, vision, passion and creative foresight to make a meaningful impact on us all. Tim Bowman Jr. is one of those people.
The Michigan native has what can only be described as a voice to heal the soul. His smooth timbre and rich milky falsetto resonate even after the music stops. Where he shines, though, is his ability to hone in on his musical background and find the perfect place within each chord and the rhythm. The cultivation process has been years in the making, however. On any given Sunday, over the past 15 years, there’s a good chance you’d hear a young Tim Bowman Jr. using his God-given gift to sing the gospel and inspirationally move the congregation to tears with a simple walk into his childhood church.
It seemed like just yesterday Bowman wowed the industry singing alongside gospel sensation, Vickie Winans. At just 17 years old, Bowman used his precocious talent to melodically scat – reminiscent of jazz legend Ella Fitzgerald – on the hit single Shake Yourself Loose Remix . We heard him again on Winans’ gospel hit song, How I Got Over. Since then, the now 23 year old has traveled the country singing with his famous aunt and also singing with his father, Smooth Jazz veteran, Tim Bowman. There’s no question that music is ubiquitous to the young artist’s makeup.
Now, Tim Bowman Jr. has taken the reigns and after many years of sitting under some of the best in the business, he’s ready to release his debut album. Finally, Bowman is giving his take on the subject. The highly anticipated album is dedicated to his first love, Jesus Christ; highlighting the healing power and pure love that comes from his relationship with God.
All his experiences and opportunities have helped mold Bowman as an artist. “I’ve recorded an album intended to evoke genuine human emotion and enlighten the world on the love of Christ.” Bowman says, “Nice beats are cool. New sounds are hot. But, what I want most is for people to feel again.”
In an era saturated with throbbing 808’s accompanied with lyrics boasting of negativity and materialism, the purest and most refreshing breath is taken after hearing Bowman’s first offering. His sound is definitely different…in a good way. Bowman has pulled from his musical influences of jazz, alternative, gospel and soul music to present a work that will undeniably change the game. “Each song should stand alone. Sometimes, you only have one chance for a person to hear and connect with your message. I want every person who listens to this album to not only get that message but also to feel the FUN I had making it,” Bowman says.
Describing his music as “Christian & Gospel”, Tim’s debut album features gospel superstars, Vickie Winans and Dorinda Clark-Cole. His first single, “He Will” featuring his aunt, Vickie Winans, sticks pleasantly to the gospel tradition and will, no doubt, quickly climb the gospel charts. One of the strongest offerings is the moving declaration, “Healer.” The simple yet pure praise and worship ballad is a reflection of Bowman’s faith. Tim says, “It’s all there. Everything you need to understand about His power is in the words to this song.” Executive produced by his father, Tim Bowman, who has been producing his own critically acclaimed records for years, the album is nothing close to amateur. While the young artist is new to the industry, the quality stands with the best of them.
Pastor Efrain Perez (message)
Perez Pastors are a young couple constituted by God to be part of our Lord’s desire to perfect the saints for the work of ministry, for building up the body of Christ. This couple, native of the beautiful island of Puerto Rico begins his relationship dating in the city of Guayama. In this beautiful unity God has sustained for more than 18 years, of which 15 have been linked by a covenant marriage. Their lives have been impacted by the supernatural power of Jesus Christ and because of the good news of the kingdom of God, Jesus entered rule over his being nine years ago. Since then the Holy Spirit has been leading us into all truth and teach all that Jesus spoke in his word.
Perez LosPastores experienced rebirth in 2001 in the Light of the World Church-AG located in the city of Pontiac under the care of pastors Ippolito and Gloria Bernard. It was in this church where they were instructed by the leadership of this and developed for the work of ministry. During his seven years of commitment to God, with the pastors and congregation, the brothers Pérez had the privilege given by God to exercise leadership in youth ministry. Then under the guidance of the Holy Spirit and the approval of our Pastors Yazmin sister founded the School of the Bible Barea by Global University, which he called Adonai Bible Institute. Efrain’s brother acted as a youth leader in Michigan Sectional Presbytery of the Assemblies of God under the supervision of Pastor Ezequiel Torres-Priest. This couple passionately in the work of God have been involved in the mission field and participants from a mission trip to the Republic of Venezuela in 2004. In 2006, the Holy Spirit begins to reveal the sister Yazmin messages as songs and instructed him to record a professional level, this was the beginning of the ministry of Yazmin Reyes Music. In 2003, prophetic word given about his life through the mouth of Reinaldo Velazquez Evangelista a young hood. In this word God is pleased to express his ministerial plan for them in front of the congregation and visitors, stating that in five years from this time were exercising a pastoral role. This was a confirmation of what God was stirring in their hearts, so that by it God reveals part of his ministerial plan for them.
It was in 2007 where God introduces a transition from local church to the Latin Christian Center. Under the guidance of the Holy Spirit and the approval and blessing of Pastors Bernard these young people are sent to be part of a new plantation within the American District of the Assemblies of God under the leadership of Pastors Adrian and Silvia Falgetelli. It was under the cover of the family Falgetelli Pastore Perez entered ministerial mentoring as they formed the structure of this church. They were part of the leadership which began with 12 leaders. This beautiful church began to experience growth and development during the first year of life, while the work was developing the Perez brothers also experienced development in this new phase of his ministerial life. In 2008, after having been tested and found faithful by Pastors Falgetelli were named as Youth Pastors and sister Yazmin as Director of Praise and Worship Local. Just five years after the prophecy received regarding a pastoral role. This was the fulfillment of that prophecy. In early youth ministry for mentoring conversations between Adrian and brother Pastor Efrain, Pastor recommended that he continue his ministerial studies because God was leading them to a higher level ministerial. It was thus decided where Brother Efrain MISOM study (Michigan School of Ministry) by Global University while ministered Youth Ministry. In 2009 Falgetelli Pastors recognize them as the Associate Pastors and began a transition to greater leadership. God was commissioned to direct his steps towards what was to come later that same year. In the same year the sister Yazmin records and releases his first musical production entitled “The Creator” by Yamin Reyes (www.yazminreyes.com). In the month of October the Holy Spirit put an urgency about Pastor Efrain, which told him that it was time to pastor a congregation, but he did not understand why God spoke in this way. Silently continue seeking God’s guidance. In early November after a service at a church in Lincoln Park, a young woman approaches him and hands him a folded paper which had some words engraved with the following message: “before this year is over I’ll give you a surprise” . This was very shocking to him, but did not understand why God used this young to tell you this. Later this month the Pastor Adrian extended an invitation to his house for dinner, using the following words: “I invite you to dinner and I have a surprise for you.” This was very intriguing so I went to dinner with much anticipation. The day of the dinner Adrian Pastor express what God was doing in his family and where he was headed. God opened doors to pastor a church in Minneapolis, MN and through much prayer, time and confirmation of the Spirit decided to offer the opportunity to take the general pastorate the Perez family. It was at that moment that God confirmed everything I was doing in the hearts of Pastors Pérez, so cut to the heart instantly and began to mourn under the touch of the Holy Spirit. Pastor Efrain express all that God was doing and this was the seal of confirmation that everything that was happening in the two families was ordained by God.
Since then the family Perez began the transition of official recognition by the Assemblies of God. On April 4, 2010 Pastors Perez took the pastorate of the Center Christian Latin – God is Love as interim pastors. From that time until the day June 21, 2010 they waited patiently and got the reward for their patience and loyalty. Pastor Efrain Today is officially recognized as Pastor of CCL. God called them, prepare them, in time opened the doors and call recognized him in the eyes of men. The call and the ministry God gives. This ministry is under the coverage of the Assemblies of God, but not limited to it and recognizing the order established in the word of God. The coverage and the ministerial order is established in Ephesians 4:11-16 model established ministry in your congregation. The building is built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, with Christ Jesus himself as the corner stone (Ephesians 2:20).SHAPE
