One Mission ~ One Heart ~ One Sound

Open Heaven Musicfest (OHM) is a non-profit organization dedicated to positively impacting the community through various outreach events.   The flagship event is the annual Summer musicfest.  More than an event or a series of events, OHM is a mission.   Touching lives is a labor of love that we are committed to.   In light of the current ills plaguing our communities, we stand as a beacon of faith, hope and love.   Our annual musicfest is a celebratory atmosphere featuring Christ-centered, Spirit-filled music that brings people from all backgrounds together.    Unity through diversity is certainly what we strive for.

Our recent partnership with the Ocean Grove Camp Meeting Association, provides us the opportunity to be of greater impact to our community through the launch of Summer Nights. Summer Nights will offer six consecutive Fridays of family fun, fellowship and dynamic worship. See the Upcoming Events tab for dates and times,

We are called “Open Heaven” because we strongly believe that the manifestation of God’s unhindered power is desperately needed to bring authentic healing and transformation to everyone who desires them. We are a blessed Nation but yet there is no shortage of needs in our communities and across the land. Besides such things as substance abuse, random school shootings and gang activity that threaten innocent lives, there are those in the shadows suffering in silent despair. The consequent decay of fallen humanity is everywhere, but the unconditional love of God makes all the difference in the world.

One song, one word of encouragement, one warm smile or one caring hand can open the door for a life changing experience. Open Heaven Musicfest provides the opportunity for genuine and enduring change to happen. As the salt and light of the earth {Matthew 5:13-14), we exist to make things better and brighter. We welcome you to join us and enjoy the great outdoors with powerful live bands, multiple food/merchandise vendors and fun activities for all ages. See the Upcoming Events tab for details.

God has positioned us to be the joyful sound of our commUNITY!

NEW JERSEY: This series of worship gatherings in various cities, is intended to further foster unity among local churches, while providing community outreach from a faith-based perspective. The Bible says in Matthew 5:14 that the corporal Church of Christ is "the light of the world." We are compared to a city on a hill that cannot be hidden. Through "Light the City" we are bringing Spirit-filled music and a message of hope. Our 2022 schedule includes Linden, Perth Amboy, Asbury Park and Paterson. Each city event will have a different dynamic, but the same mission. * August 5th: We Kick-off in Linden, NJ at the Robert Wood Brauer Promenade. This will be an exciting evening of Praise & Worship as the city celebrates their Gospel Night from 5pm to 10pm. There will be food trucks and vendors. Our "Light the City" mission will open up the evening with two hours of live music (5pm-7pm). Come visit us at our OHM tent. You do not want to miss this powerful opening night! Seating is available, but feel free to bring your beach chair. *August 6th: The very next day we head to Bay View Park in Perth Amboy, NJ! Come and lift up the name of Jesus with us from 4pm-6pm. Enjoy some free burgers and hot dogs. Also, Meet the Need (MTN) will be onsite to handout some free student backpacks filled with supplies. This is going to be another life-changing event. Don't miss it! Lawn seating so bring your beach chairs. *August 13th: We have a power packed two hours (4pm-6pm) planned for Springwood Park in Asbury Park, NJ. This city has a rich music history. We are not coming just to add to it, but to establish a legacy of godliness. We encourage you to come expecting a life-changing experience as we join our hearts to God's heart in worship. Bring your beach chair. *August 20th: The final LTC stop will be at New Barbour Park in Paterson, NJ. We are joining forces with Brother James Brown who leads "From the Street to Christ" Ministry. From 4pm to 6pm, we have the honor of closing out his annual community barbeque. We expect a great manifestation of God's glorious presence as we sing songs of Zion and fellowship. You don't want to miss this one either! Bring your beach chair. The LTC events will precede and build momentum towards our annual flagship music festivals. We look forward to seeing you at these God-ordained events. Read more below...
