Virtual Gathering for Music and Worship Leaders (Facilitated Conversation)

October 28 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm

Virtual Gathering for Music and Worship Leaders

Date:  Thursday, October 28, 1:00 p.m. – 2:30 p.m. EDT

Led by:  Douglas Brown, Director of Music and Adjunct Instructor, Union Presbyterian Seminary

Workshop Description: This gathering will center around conversation among peers and will be facilitated by Douglas Brown, Director of Music and Adjunct Instructor in Church Music, at Union Presbyterian Seminary. This learning opportunity is open to all who play a role in worship or music ministry. The facilitated conversation and dialogue is aimed to allow time and space for music and worship leaders to gather virtually to discuss and reflect on obstacles and opportunities presented within the pandemic related to music ministry and worship. What challenges were faced? What solutions were created? What lessons were learned? How have you adapted music and worship in your current context? What will the future hold?

Time among peers will be provided to share and discuss opportunities as well as possible next steps. The objective is to connect and learn from one another in light of the impact of the global pandemic on how churches worship. We hope you will be able to join us.
