A Ground-Breaking One-Day Workshop for Clergy and Musicians
Collaboration – kəˌlabəˈrāSH(ə)n/ noun, the action of working with someone to produce or create something.

McFee and Bell leading WorkshopSunday comes around every week. And no matter the size or style of worship, clergy and musicians are in a constant act of working together to “produce or create something”–of co-laboring to bring the Word of God alive. Do you have a desire for the creative process to be more clear and have a common vocabulary to take the work to a deeper and higher level? Would you like to bring a sensory-rich expression of the Word that touches mind and heart in powerful ways week after week?

Dr. Marcia McFee and Mr. Chuck Bell are offering a ground-breaking one-day workshop that brings clergy and musicians together in a learning environment that will enrich collaborations with exciting creative processes and skills.

Topics include: strategies for planning together and planning ahead; layering of art forms for sensory-rich communication; the matrix of choosing congregational song and ensemble/instrumental music; writing and speaking techniques that make words come alive and create more deeply spiritual worship; accompaniment techniques for making sound beds and creating artful transitions; effective song leading and verbal introductions to music 

$25/person, includes lunch
