The Durham Men’s Acapella Gospel Group (DMAGG) was formed in 2007, the vision of Chris Beetham of The Embassy of God in Oshawa, Ontario. Chris has long been a fan and avid participant in men’s four-part harmony in the “Barbershop” style. When he gave his heart to Christ, it became his passion to share his New Love, and what better way than to do it through his old love, with other men who love God and love to sing. Acapella Gospel is the fulfillment of that desire.
Our growing group currently numbers a dozen plus, representing six different churches. We prefer to be thought of as “ministering” rather than performing or entertaining. Over the past four years we have visited churches large and small, within and beyond the Durham region, both as part of the worship service and for ministries within the church, such as men’s ministries or seniors’ groups. We have an active ministry to seniors’ residences within the region.
