The Agape Force Unchoir
The Agape Force Un-Choir album was recorded by Winkie Pratney in the sanctuary of an Assembly of God Church in Fresno, California. The pastor's name was Mohrmon and he was a great friend of the ministry, often teaching us during the week (we would come to the church for those sessions), even before the first official discipleship schools were formed. Those early, early days were a mix of ministry, study and work (chores). Not extremely structured. More impromptu, depending on the opportunities that presented themselves on a daily basis. I think the cover art (Paul Annan) is reflective, not only of the time (early 70's), but of the more fluid, organic, flexible nature of the ministry at that time. My recollections of the recording session for this album were that everyone in the ministry (with very few exceptions) participated. We gathered in the choir loft and Winkie set up a reel to reel recorder down in front at the mouth of the isle between the two rows of pews. I'm trying to remember more details about the sessions and the time leading up to them. Our custom was to have a prayer meeting before doing anything like this, but I don't have specific memories of that day, except my embarrassment over being singled out again and again because I was too loud. The following pages are mp3 files of the songs on the album. Enjoy.
