Student Ministry Events
A Georgia Youth Choir Festival
Amplify is an exciting event for middle and high school students interested in learning more about the ways they can serve God through worship arts. Centered on a group choral experience, students will spend time working on group choir pieces as well as exploring their choice of a variety of additional tracks related to the worship arts. Throughout the weekend, students will explore ways to use vocal music, instrumental music, written and spoken word, visual arts, dance and drama to deepen their worship experiences. Choir leaders will also be provided with a time of learning and sharing.
The choir will be led by Stanley Roberts, who serves as Associate Dean and Arthur Lowndes Rich Professor of Choral Conducting at the Townsend School of Music as well as Minister of Music at First Baptist Church of Christ in Macon, Georgia. For more information about Stanley Roberts Click Here.
