joyful noise Xpress (jnX) is a non-profit missions organization serving churches all over the world.
We use worship and music training to help believers cultivate a worshipful life that is pleasing to God.
We need God, but have we ever thought…
that God wanted us to draw closer to Him?
“Yet a time is coming and has now come when the true worshipers will worship the Father in the Spirit and in truth, for they are the kind of worshipers the Father seeks.”
（John 4: 23 NIV）
God created men, so that they can worship and draw closer to Him.
Since then, God has been waiting for men to worship Him in spirit and truth. When we truly submit to God the way He originally intended, that is the best offering we can give Him. At the same time, we will experience God’s life-changing power, along with the fruit of that new life, whose blessings we can share with others. We will become a true worshiper in our society.
“There is a wave of awakening in worship throughout the world. As more and more churches are turning to a contemporary style of worship, we need to be reminded worship is not about the style, it is all about intimacy with God.”
－ jnX founder – Anthony Chan
God has revealed the need for more training and teaching about music and worship, and this is the calling He has moved us to serve as jnX.
This ministry started as a call both my wife and I received from God: “Both of you must team up to go from one island to another island, from one country to another country, to establish training centers”
－ jnX founder – Anthony Chan
Anthony and Isabella Chan first heard God’s calling back in 1990. After 8 years of financial difficulties and personal struggles, they ultimately accepted the fact that this was clearly the mission and vision given by God. The second calling from God happened in 1998. Finally, they both gave up everything to submit completely to God, and began the journey to serve full time by faith.
Joyful noise Xpress was established in 2001. Although jnX did not get much financial support and human resources, it was clearly God’s voice to call jnX to expand the ministry. By God’s grace, jnX has visited 19 countries and 124 cities for missionary and music training over the past 16 years. In addition, we also have jnX members and volunteers in Hong Kong, Macau, and other Asian countries. Over the years, God has faithfully confirmed our mission and strengthened His vision to us, continually proving to us that when something that is impossible in human’s eyes, everything is possible in Him, including this ministry.

Our official name “joyful noise Xpress” originated from Psalm 100:1 in the bible – “Make a joyful noise to the Lord, all the lands.” (KJM). We applied “joyful noise” and “Express” (by taking the “E” away), as “X” represents Jesus is our leader; so it became “jnX”.
Since 2001, jnX has visited 19 countries and 124 cities to serve churches with different cultures, backgrounds, and denominations. Wherever God asks us to go, the joyful noise Xpress will go and follow His guidance completely to finish whatever He entrusted to us as our mission.
Through worship training, worship concerts and music-related services, our desire is to lead other people into God’s presence and become His worshipers. As we worship God, we will experience the life-transforming power of God and His wondrous love. As our spiritual lives grow, we will continue to share God’s blessings enthusiastically to other people, and build a true community around following Christ.
In addition, we focus on those individuals who minister through music, helping them to use their gift of music more effectively, and to become our partners as we spread the Gospel.
What we believe:
The Bible is the inspired Word of God, the ultimate God eternally existent in the Trinity: Father, Son and Holy Spirit
Jesus Christ is the Son of God from whom God has made salvation possible through His death and resurrection. It’s God’s desire for all people to be saved and the only means of being saved is through repentance and faith.
All believers are God’s workmanship and have been commissioned to ‘…go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you…’ (Mt 28:19-20)
The Joyful Donkey
Once upon a time, a little donkey was running home and shouted: “Mother! Mother! Something amazing happened today! I was resting and enjoying the grass on the roadside, when someone untied my rope and led me into the town. Not only that, but he brought me into the center of the town and many people welcomed me there! Mother, I am really joyful, and you know what else? I became a SUPERSTAR!”. Mother donkey laughed and said, “My son, it was not you the people were welcoming! They were cheering for Jesus Christ, who was riding on you!”
This story is a great reminder. As Anthony Chan, the founder of jnX, has said, “As we serve others, especially worshipping on the stage, we have to be cautious. We can easily become the center of attention and forget about our identity as the donkeys. We sing and praise all to the glory of God!
As such, we should remind ourselves that every single moment, we are a humble yet joyful donkey. Do you want to know the unique story of each of our jnX’s donkeys?
