David Crowder starts church music conference

David Crowder of the The David Crowder Band is starting an event that is specifically designed for church music practicioners. Crowder’s Fantastical Church Music Conference will instruct and challenge attendees to cooperatively and creatively think about how to craft and choose church music.

The conference will take place Thursday, Sept. 30, to Saturday, Oct. 2, in Waco Hall on the Baylor University Campus.

A number of well know musicians will serve as presenters and workshop leaders. The artists that are scheduled to attend the conference include Israel Houghton, Jars of Clay, Rob Bell, Hillsong London, Louie Giglio, Leeland, Francis Chan, Gungor, Derek Webb, Charlie Peacock and Matt Haher.

This conference will give attendees a better understanding of music’s role in the church. The aim will be to promote diversity within music and give new inspiration to worship.

Some of the workshop topics will include: The Functional limits of Creativity; A Short History of Church Music, Worship and Justice; From Sunday to Sunday: A New Old Vision for Worship – liturgical spirituality for post-modern-semi-reformed-hipsters; Technology and Production; Electronic programming; and Children’s Education and Creative Identity.

I think this type of conference is greatly needed. In my experience, there are church musicians, worship leaders and ministers of music that need more guidance. They need to understand the imporance of song selection. They need to be creatively inspired.
