The Sign-mime choir is another part of LUYHM. It is under the direction of
Karen "Kay" Rush. Our purpose is to minister to God's people through the medium
of Sign-mime (a combination of Sign language and pantomime). We have been in
existence since February of 1998, when we started rehearsing for our Director's
Holy Ghost Birthday Celebration. That was our first engagement and debut as a
choir. We are a community choir which consist of families, mothers, sons,
daughters, cousins, nephews, nieces, aunts, uncles, grandmothers, and

Some of the awards that the choir has received since its inception in 1998 are as

-- The "Christian Arts Award" by the New Hope International Association of
Christian Dancers, founded by Pastor Regina Patrick of Life Changers Ministries
Church of Detroit, MI.
-- The Spirit of Detroit Award from Detroit City Council for our work with Literacy
Volunteers of America in 2002, 2003, and 2004.

The Sign-mime Choir has ministered in and around the metropolitan Detroit
area,blessing God's people both hearing and Deaf. Some standing engagements
include,  The Children's Hospital's charitable event, Festival of Trees,  The
Gospel Fest, Detroit Culture Center's Noel Night, The Martin Luther King Gospel
concert hosted by Eastern Michigan University just to name a few.

The choir has traveled to Grand Rapids, MI, Lansing, MI, Chicago, IL, Racine,
WS, and Columbia, SC, to share their ministering gifts.

The Lift Up Your Hands Ministries Bi-annual Sign-mime concert is a spectacular
praise and worship experience that occurs the last Saturday of October every
other year. Past concerts include the years 2000, 2002, 2004, 2006, 2008, 2010,
