What began as a decades-long dream by founder, Scott Dawson has become a unique sound in the Christian music scene.  Kerygma, derived from a Greek word meaning "proclamation", fits well the philosophy of this ten piece, horn-driven band interested in proclaiming the Good News of the kingdom of God in a variety of settings.  Combining original tunes with the best of others, and attracting listeners with quality musicians and catchy songs, Kerygma seeks to reach a broader audience with a message of hope and love.

Based in Rochester, NY,  Kerygma consists of a rhythm section and percussion along with bari, tenor, and alto saxophones and trumpets.  In addition to the vocals and other instrumental flavorings, as well as touches of humor, Kerygma presents a show designed to make you smile, laugh, ponder a bit, and even sing along!
