Serving God's Word and Inviting People to Christ Through Music, Media, Outreach, Technology and Teaching


MSW Ministries is an inter-denominational organization that promotes unity found in Christ to the community at large. Each team member (though from varied religious backgrounds) strives to reflect Christ’s love to all.

The central beliefs of Christianity unite us. We agree that salvation is through Christ alone. We recognize Holy Scripture (both Old and New Testaments) as the only perfect rule for faith and conduct. We believe:

  • Jesus Christ and the faith of the apostles as recorded in Holy Scriptures.

  • The church is universal, and that we are a part of the community of believers that began with Jesus’ first followers, is alive today and will continue until Jesus returns.

  • That salvation is by God’s grace, through faith, in Christ.

  • The necessity of new birth, Christ’s mandate to evangelize the world, and the necessity of education and formation in a Christian context.

  • Baptism and Holy Communion as sacraments of the church.

  • In a Trinitarian understanding of one God as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit

  • We are dependent on the Holy Spirit who enables our obedience to Christ, conforms us to his image and empowers us to continue Christ’s mission in our world.

  • In the reality of freedom in Christ that frees us to serve the community of faith and our world.

MSW’s ministry team endeavors to live our faith by:

  • Serving Christ, His church and our world.

  • Worshiping God with all our heart, mind, soul, and being.

  • Sharing our faith with others, so they, too, will experience God’s beauty, love and joy.

A documentary about founder Bob Ravenscroft
and the development of MSW Ministries.
Bob and Gretchen Ravenscroft launched MSW Ministries (a private operating foundation) in 2006. 


Bob and Gretchen are committed to the cause of Christ, the renewal of worship, and to supporting music and the arts that serve God's Word.

An able and avid teacher, Bob has served on several university jazz studies faculties over the years. Additionally, he toured for a decade with the Christian ministry "Majesty." Today, Bob records an improvised musical and inspirational podcast called "Morning Glories." He also performs with his group, The Bob Ravenscroft Trio. Transcending mere performance, Bob is always in pursuit of that special place where, as he says, "music serves the Word." (more at bobravenscroft.com)
