It is seldom that you find a Gospel CD from a new artist that will rock you, lift you, make you laugh, cry and think all at the same time.
From the inspirational worship of Just For Me, to the high exuberant praise of King of Glory you will be left breathless, spellbound, held captive and set free.
Apostle Ladson's anointed assignment overflows in each arrangement both in music, and in lyrics. God has truly given him a complete Davidic gift, that has put Ministry back into the Music.
What once began as a promise has become a continued manifestation of favor on Apostle Ladson's life. He made a promise to his pastor, the late Pastor Rosa Ladson, that he would make an album and dedicate it to her. That promise has been made and surely kept time and time again.
Growing up in the church and around music, Pastor Ladson was determined to not just have another Sunday Morning Church Choir. Under the guidance of the anointing, he organized Eleazar with one mission in mind â€œto put the ministry back into the musicâ€.
The then Minister Ladson, picked up his entire family and moved them, under the instruction of God, from Savannah, Georgia to Erie, Pennsylvania. At that time the Lord gave him instruction to pastor. Christ Church of Transfiguration began on Easter Sunday of 2000.
Eleazar began in April of 2001 as a way to keep that promise to his grandmother. Enduring hardships left and right didnâ€™t deter the Pastorâ€™s determination to complete the project. He was the choirâ€™s director, and musician, all the while pastoring at Bread of Heaven Tabernacle of Praise. Throughout the recording process of the choirâ€™s first album, â€œJust Hold Onâ€, Pastor Ladsonâ€™s ministry began to attract a lot of attention. The choir was able to minister all throughout the northern Tri-State area and in Savannah, Georgia. The way this Man of God was able to convey the word, through both song and sermon enabled his ministry to grow at a rapid pace. Also in this time, the Lord spoke to the pastor again and called him to Apostle and told him to bring the ministry that he was called to back to life. Christ Church of Transfiguration was once again alive. They began holding services in the basement of a daycare center. Some thought it was impossible to pull it all off, but God made a promise and Pastor was determined to seek it out to its fullest. And to bring those that would follow, with him.
But the songs didnâ€™t stop there. Before the first album was finished, the Lord continued to drop songs into the spirit of Apostle Ladson and his congregation, which by that time included the entire choir. And before they knew it, â€œKing of Gloryâ€ was born. So it was only right to create a second album. This one would be slightly different. This one would be the album that allowed the high praise to begin. No longer would it be praising in the midst of, but it would be a praise that was given in the liberty that was promised by the One and only. So, as the songs continued to flow, the Lord continued to speak, and before they knew it, they had an entire albumâ€™s worth of songs over the course of a short while.
So, Pastor called upon his niece and nephew to assist him in the project that he would later entitle â€œLost In You. The recording of â€œLost In Youâ€ was done live at Christ Church of Transfiguration. While in the process of completing the album, the Lord spoke once again, and told him to move the ministry to Jacksonville, Florida. He was not to instruct his members to go or stay but to pray and make the decision on their own. So, the Pastor, his family, and Eleazar, sold everything they had and followed the man of God to their Canaan. While there provision has been made in every way possible. Eleazar was able to complete and release their second album that is continuously ministering its life-changing message to all that come in contact with it.
Eleazar means, he who God helps or Godâ€™s helper and He has proven Himself to be just that to the choir and the man behind the choir.
