The name “Jesus Team A” is a play on words: “Jesús te ama” means “Jesus loves you”. But to tell you the truth, I think the feeling is mutual. Just like its names, JTA’s music displays a kaleidoscope of influences ranging from Rock, Soul, R&B, Latino, Jazz, and more. I’d be pulling your chain if I told you that I could actually pick them all out, but I’d be downright lying if I told you I didn’t enjoy their show.
JTA’s music dares to be different while at the same time universal. Its rainbow of melodic variations, chord progressions and syncopation is complemented by relevant original lyrics that tell you something, something you’ve always known, something you’d long forgotten, something you’ve yet to learn.
JTA is headed up by Vince Lujan of the Vince Lujan Project (VLP), and various of the members of JTA are also members of the VLP. While both bands have a crossover of influences and musical styles, each retains its own identity. Vince’s songwriting and guitar playing skills match his vocal presentation and make for a memorable performance.

One name, two meanings. Jesus Team A is an energetic bilingual praise and worship band. The group seamlessly blends Spanish and English songs and brings together faith communities from diverse backgrounds. By sharing personal faith journeys and exploring differences in cultural experience, the group is able to unite listeners as the body of Christ. Their message challenges participants to reach beyond personal borders and offer the unconditional acceptance that Christ offers to all of us.
Dos nombres, un mismo sentido: Jesús Te Ama es un grupo bilingüe y energético de alabanzas y adoración.
Mezclando canciones en español e ingles, el grupo une a comunidades de diferentes culturas y tradiciones. Compartiendo historias de la fe, experiencias, cultura de cada integrante y con su música; el grupo se une en Cristo y hace partícipe a la audiencia.
