This summer, the Texas Conference Choir Clinic for Music and Worship Arts is happy to be hosting Dr. Marcia McFee, worship professor, consultant and Director of Worship for General Conference, as our worship leader for the week! This year, as we celebrate our 60th camp, we are offering a special Clergy Focus Day at Lakeview as a part of our Camp Curriculum. Bishop Huie shares my excitement this year as we offer special classes for Clergy for the first time on Thursday, June 16th. Of course you are welcome to come and spend the entire week with us June 13-17, and experience numerous creative worship services and workshops on a variety of subjects as we focus on “Seasons to Celebrate”, emphasizing the Seasons of the Church year, but if that isn’t possible, I would especially love to have you join us for the Clergy Focus Day.
Marcia travels across the country teaching exciting and interactive workshops for local congregations that send teams home feeling inspired for their work and with resources and tools to make it happen – no matter the size of congregation or “style” of worship. Refresh your passion and skills for the work of worship design and leadership! Learn how to use more sensory-rich and effective communication and how to plan deeply meaningful worship without getting burned out!
Some Clergy are joining us on Wed. evening, when we will experience a unique candlelight service with Marcia in the Tabernacle. On Thursday morning, Marcia will lead our morning worship with a focus on Pentecost, followed by several workshops with you in mind. You are not limited to those workshops, however, and may attend or observe any of our classes. In addition to Marcia, there are over a dozen other clinicians and performing artists and a variety of classes. Thursday evening, we will experience a World Communion Service. If you would like to serve Communion with Bishop Huie at that service, please let me know.
I hope that you will view the attached Clinician poster and the Cover Letter. I’ve also attached a Clergy Focus Day Registration form for your convenience. Please visit our website for even more information. www.TexasChoirCamp.org
And please share this information with musicians and other members of your worship team as well.
Let me know if you have any questions. I look forward to having you join us!
Grace and Peace,
Dean of Texas Conference Choir Clinic
