The Florida Chapter of the Fellowship of United Methodists in Music and Worship Arts is pleased to announce that our 56th Annual Church Music Workshop will be held from Sunday afternoon, July 15 through Friday noontime, July 20, 2012, at Florida Southern College in Lakeland. Anyone involved in church music or worship planning, both traditional and contemporary, adults or youth, are invited to join us.
This year’s theme, “Celebrating Our Journey: The Seasons of Faith,” is based on Ecclesiastes 3:1-11. Clinicians for the workshop will be Adult Choral Clinician Ken Berg, composer and co-director of the Birmingham (AL) Boys Choir; Youth Clinician Andrew Minear, Director of Choral Activities at Dr. Phillips HS in Orlando; Handbell Clinician Sharon Brant, organist/music director at St. Mary's Episcopal Church in Dade City; and Workshop Pastor, Dr. Kandace Brooks, Director of Community Formation and Affiliate Professor of Worship at Asbury Theological Seminary in Orlando. Also included during this year's workshop will be a Pastor's Retreat and Worship & Song Event on Wednesday, July 18.
Our Annual Church Music Workshop is for adults and youth (College, High School and Middle School) and has a variety of seminars to meet everyone’s music ministry needs. We invite you to take this opportunity to connect with other church musicians and worship leaders and be renewed.
