Louange Traduction Composition (LTC):"Mission is not the ultimate goal of the church. Worship is. Mission exists because worship doesn't. Worship is ultimate, not missions, because God is ultimate, not man."

We have, since the creation of "Louange Traduction Composition" (LTC) in 1989, tried to be a tool for the Church in the French speaking world. The songs, the materials, websites and CD’s are their so that our worship is a passionate expression of our love for Jesus and in turn ignites a passion to share the Good News around us.
Our main areas of action are in:

Out of the Ark Music:Singing resources for children of primary school age
In 1989 Mark and Helen Johnson were asked to write a short nativity musical by the headteacher of the primary school where Helen was teaching. 'Off To Bethlehem' was a huge success and within months Mark and Helen were given the opportunity of leaving their jobs to explore and develop their gift in writing music.
It was with a deep breath and a big step of faith that Mark and Helen went on to set up Out Of The Ark Music as a fledgling vehicle for distributing their songs to primary schools.
Helen recalls: 'Whilst reading the story about Noah and the flood, I was impressed by the task set before Noah - to fill the ark with "every creature that has the breath of life in it". What sparked our imagination was the notion of somehow containing the colour, energy, beauty and diversity of created life in a unique vessel, with a view to then releasing it into the next generation. This powerful image was to become our inspiration and the motivation for all our songs going into schools. Like Noah, we see our job as capturing and preserving all that is good - the breadth and diversity of life and the world around us - and passing it on through the medium of music'.
What began with only a tiny desk under the stairs, has grown over two decades to become a leading educational publisher that now supplies over 18,000 primary schools and nurseries across the UK and overseas.
Out of the Ark Music's goals are:
