Maurice 6746Dr. Maurice Sklar's lifelong musical journey began at age four. Born in New Orleans, his exceptional musical ability took him to the Curtis Institute of Music (where he earned his Bachelor of Arts degree) and the renowned Juilliard School of Music. He answered the call of God to enter the ministry in May 1991. Since then he has performed and ministered throughout the United States, Canada, Europe, the former Soviet Union, Asia and Israel.

In June 1997, Maurice was awarded an Doctorate of Ministry degree from Word of Truth Seminary in Huntsville, Alabama, for his pioneering work in returning classical music to the church and for his revival ministry in the Holy Spirit. In addition, he has served as Artist-in-Residence and instructor of violin and viola at Oral Roberts University in Tulsa, Oklahoma, since 1990.

Dr. Sklar has appeared on Trinity Broadcasting Network's "Praise the Lord," “It’s Supernatural” with Sid Roth, “TCT”, Daystar, “CBN Asia” with Hugo Chan, "This Is Your Day with Benny Hinn," and "Richard Roberts Live!" programs. He is a frequent guest on "The 700 Club" with Pat Robertson, and recorded for the soundtrack of Kenneth Copeland's movie "Covenant Rider."

"El Shaddai," Dr. Sklar's first album as a signed artist with Integrity Music, Inc., was recorded with the National Philharmonic Orchestra of London in 1994. It stands as a tribute to his pioneering efforts to blend classical orchestral stylings with the Christian worship realm. His next album, "Songs of Zion," also recorded with London's National Philharmonic Orchestra, is dedicated to the nation of Israel and the Jewish people. Maurice participated in the huge Hosanna-Integrity Music project, "Shalom Jerusalem." In this live worship concert recorded in Jerusalem, he is the primary instrumental soloist, and joins his musical gifts with fellow Messianic Jew, vocalist Paul Wilbur. Released to nearly 100 nations throughout the world in 1995, it has been the largest selling video ever produced by Integrity Music. Maurice has numerous other recordings which can be found at our eStore.

In addition to ministering as a psalmist who ushers in the Lord's presence at major meetings, Dr. Sklar ministers powerfully in churches and synagogues. There is a rich anointing on his ministry of the Word, with awesome demonstrations of the Holy Spirit in supernatural healing and miracles, words of knowledge, and prophetic ministry. Healed from depression himself, Maurice has a special level of faith for those who are tormented in the soulish realm of the mind, will, and emotions. As a result, many people are set free from all forms of oppression, depression, and related illnesses. A spirit of revival and restoration continually manifest in his meetings, and a tangible outpouring of God's glory accompanies his music on the violin.

In 1995-1996, Maurice traveled to Uppsala, Sweden to attend Livets Ord (Word of Life) Bible School during this time.

Maurice is fulfilling his vision to establish classical music under the anointing of the Holy Spirit as worship to God, to reach into Asia, Europe and the United States with the combination of classical music and the Gospel, for the glory of God in these last days.

Maurice enjoyed the privilege of playing for the first Messianic Jewish Music Festival in Moscow, Russia, in May 1995. Led by Jonathan Bernis, more than 5,000 Russian Jews were born again in that Olympic Stadium gathering. This was perhaps the largest number of Jewish people in history to accept the Lord Jesus Christ in one place at one time since the book of Acts. Since then, Dr. Sklar has repeatedly performed with Jonathan in Riga, Latvia; Orlando Florida, for "Israel's Jubilee Celebration"; Budapest, Hungary, for Jonathan's Jewish evangelistic ministry; in Nizhny, Novgorod; and in Cordoba and Buenos Aires, Argentina and Montevideo, Uruguay. Maurice will be returning to Argentina with Jonathan again this year.

God has raised up Dr. Maurice Sklar to touch, bless, and change many lives throughout the world in these last days of harvest and revival before the Messiah's return. As he travels and ministers around the world, Maurice shares his unique vision for God to restore classical music and the arts to the church for His glory. The hand of the Lord is resting mightily on this man, husband, father, prophet, teacher, psalmist to the Body of Christ, and master musician to the world!
