One of the principal tasks of musicians who plan and lead worship is to lift up the voice of the congregation. But how do we invite people to join in rather than sit back and listen? Can you change the musical culture in a congregation from one that is passive to one where people actively engage in singing? What are the ways that singing together builds community? Chad_organ5_croppedThis class will address these and other questions, and explore the Biblical and historical foundations of singing together when we gather.

Quotes from Fall 2015 Class:

“This was one of the finest seminars I’ve been to in my 40 years of being a church musician. I left feeling inspired and refreshed, and appreciated having a lot of useful ideas and information that we could put to use in our congregation. Well done!”
