Coulter, Dr. Neil & Joyce
n 1. The scientific study of music, especially traditional or non-Western music, as an aspect of culture. 2. The comparative study of music of different cultures.
Neil & Joyce are members of Wycliffe Bible Translators in Papua New Guinea. Neil studies the musical traditions of a people group in which a church has been planted to assist that church in developing a worship style that is natural to their traditions and culture. In a sense, he does with music and worship what the translators do with words and Scripture.
Joyce loves teaching high school English to the missionary kids at Ukarumpa International School.
