Greetings in the Matchless Name of Jesus Christ our Lord!
This communication is in preparation for our 2021 Annual Conference on Zoom,
July 19-23, 2021.
ZOOM INFORMATION HAS BEEN SENT TO DISTRICT LEADERS AND BEING DISTRIBUTED TO THE CHURCHES AS WELL.
This is another year that we are not going to gather together and see each other face to face, so we have prayerfully considered a way for us to reconnect as well as play a part in the conference this year. It’s been a rough year and this is something that all of the church music departments can do to help encourage our organizational body through music and song.
The National Music Department will be working together to provide a special virtual music presentation on Friday night of the conference, with the song, Psalm 34 by the Brooklyn Tabernacle Choir. Here is the link to the VERSION we are using: https://www.youtube.com/watch?app=desktop&v=XnrhfeuB3Kw&feature=youtu.be
Below is what we are asking each church music department to do to make this special project a success. If at anytime you have questions or need some assistance on this project, contact your district president for Bishop David's number.
You can call us anytime with questions or if you need anything on this. We will gladly walk you through the process. Most importantly, let’s all be prayerful as we execute this project to the Glory of God.
