Singing with ALL ages!
Children’s songwriters and performers
We know singing is a wonderful part of a church’s life. But questions come when there are a range of ages present: How do we encourage children, without alienating adults? How do we point children in the path to maturity? And do I really have to do actions? This seminar aims to equip people to have constructive conversations about all-age music back home, and better serve everyone in their church families.
