Leaders from the church, universities and the Christian music industry focused their attention on worship and congregational song within the context of the postmodern church, during the 2004 Hearn Symposium on Christian Music - "Music and Worship in an Emerging Culture" - held Oct. 4-6 on the Baylor University campus.

The Hearn Symposium is a biennial conference hosted by the Baylor Center for Christian Music Studies. The symposium was established two years ago by Billy Ray Hearn, chairman of EMI Christian Music Group and a former member of the Baylor Board of Regents, to address issues in Christian music, to explore the role of Christian music in culture, and to ensure dialogue and facilitate interaction between church musicians, pastors, Christian music industry executives, artists and composers.
