Welcome to the Winds Of Faith Community Band web site.


Winds of Faith is a faith-based community band open to all qualified musicians.
(Please view Membership page)

In 2008, the original community band began activities at William Jessup University to provide large ensemble opportunities for its instrumental music students. With the increase of WJU instrumental student enrollment, this band no longer served as a support for the college’s music department. Consequently, it was dissolved at the end of 2015. Not to be deterred, the members enthusiastically voted to continue as a separate organization, and the Winds of Faith was created.
