Virtual Praise Band is a ministry tool designed, from the ground up, to serve the needs of worshiping churches.
We were started by two men with over 50 years combined ministry experience, serving some of the largest churches in the USA, Jeff Payne, of Nashville, TN and Beaumont, TX and Ed Ernsting of Dallas, TX.
Both men have reputations for being extremely evangelistic, and for recognizing the power and value of contemporary worship in the evangelism equation.
Having a very precise set of criteria in mind, and desiring to serve God with excellence through this project, they looked diligently, for almost a year, before finding the perfect software to effectively, yet economically make Virtual Praise Band a reality.
Once they found the right software, they entered into a contractual/development relationship with Magix®, the maker, and the world’s largest music software provider, to assure that the product would continue to develop to meet the future needs of what was sure to be a huge and growing customer base.
As a platform for this purpose, our software choice provides perfect playback, video support, ease of operation, quick loading, and dependable performance. We’re convinced that Magix® Music Maker® Premium Edition is the perfect software at the perfect price. Plus, unlike any other manufacturer, Magix® has contracted to continue developing specifically for our purposes. Furthermore, Magix® put some “skin in the game,” by making the Virtual Praise Band edition of their software available at an incredibly discounted price, exclusively for Virtual Praise Band customers.
