The Florida Chapter of the Fellowship of United Methodists in Music and Worship Arts hosts an annual workshop for students and adults involved in the creative arts in service to God. This year's workshop features choral clinicians Beth Gibbs and Andrew Minear, handbell clinician Rick Holdsworth, inspiring worship and much more.
Participants work with gifted musicians who understand the creative artist who has committed their craft in service to God. "It is a wonderful opportunity to recharge, refresh and reconnect," says Jeff Faux, President of the Florida Chapter. "Our inspiration this year is Isaiah 55. The thirsty are invited to drink. With the promise of communion with God and an affirmation of our calling to serve God, we will go out in joy and be led forth in peace." Judy Weaver, former organist of First United Methodist Church in Fort Myers says, "Every year I leave inspired, and reminded of my calling as a worship artist. I would never miss this conference!"
Dr. Beth Gibbs of Florida Southern College will be leading the adult singers through a week of vocal training, worship anthems and her perspective on what it means to serve God through the arts. Dr. Andrew Minear of Alabama State University will be leading the youth participants and is back by popular demand.
