5 Inspirational Ideas From Faith-Based Music Conferences

By Stephanie Davis Smith, December 8, 2016

The planners behind these faith-based music conferences were aiming to inspire musicians, but they offered us some golden nuggets along the way!

Festival of Faith and Music

What: A biennial gathering of musicians, critics, journalists, artists and listeners
When and Where: March 30-April 1, 2017; Calvin College in Grand Rapids, Mich.
Idea to Steal: Gig Track, a popular series at FFM of intimate performances and conversations with selected artists, runs concurrently with the festival workshops.

 

AbbeyFest

What: A full-day outdoor Catholic faith, music and family festival with almost 3,000 attendees
When and Where: Sept. 24, 2016; Daylesford Abbey in Paoli, Pa.
Idea to Steal: AbbeyFest QuietZone was new to the event in 2016. It’s an area for the conference’s guests with sensory challenges.

 

Spring Into Praise 2016 Music Conference

What: Two-day event that gathers church music and praise leaders for networking, collective learning, and sharing of music strategies and fundamentals
When and Where: April 29-30, 2016; Berean Seventh-day Adventist Church in Atlanta
Idea to Steal: Each year, a mass choir of vocalists from multiple churches in attendance performs covers of songs from a variety of genres for the group. It serves as a catalyst for each choir to better serve its local church.

An event's livestream can lead to increased social engagement, marketable content and an insider’s perspective to those unable to attend.

Hungry For A Day encourages people to fast and donate what they would have spent on food to a partner organization.

Follow these steps to creating a welcome team that will give event participants the ultimate guest experience.
