Chart-topping Reggae pioneers CHRISTAFARI have announced Ascend Masterclasses, equipping the next generation of musicianaries to grow and go! Taught online by CHRISTAFARI members, this four week, 40 class offering kicks off on Monday, June 1, and it is absolutely free. Sign up now at


"This is our boldest endeavor yet,” says CHRISTAFARI founder Mark Mohr. "So many other masterclasses and online tutorials and workshops and seminars and things like that are things where they give you just a little bit for free and then they want to charge you. Every one of our classes is free. You can go sign up for one, or you can sign up for all. You can sign up on the first day, or you can sign up on the last day. The only thing you have to have is Zoom, a device you can Zoom on, and an email address to sign up.”

The classes are taught from a biblical and evangelistic perspective. The first 45 minutes of each class is going to be a monologue, and the second 45 minutes is going to be a dialogue where the instructors answer questions.

"Our ultimate mission is to encourage others to equip others across all the nations to grow so they can ascend in their talents, their giftings, to go into all the world,” says Mohr.
