2015 Breakout Sessions

The Ever-Changing Youth Choir
From middle school boys to senior-itis, our youth choirs are always in a state of flux. This session will address the many musical and non-musical aspects of change that exist within a youth choir and how we as ministers can guide them through those transitions.
Youth Choir: Basic Training
This session will address tried and true rehearsal techniques that foster beautiful singing and a strong foundation for spiritual growth.
Youth Choir: Developing a Lifetime of Worship
Beyond plugging youth into our worship schedule, are they creating authentic and formidable connections to God in worship? This session will seek to help directors utilize the collective and individual gifts of our Youth Choir for a lifetime of worship.
