Integrity Music is honored to announce the signing of Indonesian worship leader and songwriter Sidney Mohede, representing Mohede’s albums and songs to a global audience with a forthcoming English language album slated for release early next year.

 

Mohede (pronounced Mo-heed-ee) serves on staff at Jakarta Praise Community Church in Indonesia’s capital city and is known for recording in English, Indonesian and Mandarin, ministering throughout Asia and beyond. With over 380,000 Twitter followers, a 300,000+ Facebook community and millions of YouTube views of his performances and work with JPCC and the ensemble Giving My Best, Mohede is an inspiration to worship leaders and worshippers alike. 

“Because Integrity Music is focused on serving the local church on a global scale, we are always looking for those gifted and passionate people serving in their local congregations all over the world,” said C. Ryan Dunham, President of Integrity Music.  “Sidney is doing exactly that… with over 20 years of ministry in Jakarta as a worship leader, songwriter and pastor. We are excited to represent him and eager to see his songs equip local worship leaders around the world.”

Born in Indonesia, Mohede immigrated to the U.S. as a child following his parents’ divorce. At the age of 10, he found himself thrust into a completely different culture, struggling to adapt to his new life as an American kid growing up in southern California. After some rebellious years leading into high school, Mohede accepted Christ at the age of 17, changing his trajectory and launching onto a ministry path that would eventually lead him back to Indonesia. 

Today, Mohede and his family reside in his birthplace of Jakarta, where he serves as the Network Pastor for JPCC, a 12,000-member congregation. He also makes time to travel, leading worship and serving as a guest speaker and teacher at conferences and events throughout Indonesia, Malaysia, Japan, Singapore, Taiwan, Hong Kong, New Zealand, Australia, The Netherlands, the U.K. and U.S.

 

Mohede has written over 200 songs and recorded numerous projects, including the English language album, The Rescue, which features a co-write and duet with longtime friend Darlene Zschech on the song “It Is Done.” Fans of Israel Houghton may also recognize Mohede, who penned the song “Hosanna (Be Lifted Higher)” featured on Houghton’s GRAMMY Award winning album Love God/Love People. Mohede has also led worship and taught at Houghton’s annual “Deeper” worship conference.

“Words cannot describe how thrilled and honored I am to be a part of the Integrity Music family,” said Mohede. “My primary desire has always been to simply live in His presence, and live out this grace He has given me, whether in my leading worship or in writing worship songs for churches to sing in our nation of Indonesia. I believe worship transcends cultures, geographical and language barriers, and I am grateful for Integrity Music for welcoming me to be a part of what God is doing globally.”
