ABOUT

MISSION...

 

Our mission is to present high quality outreach concerts in a non-threatening, safe, supportive environment where artists can share their God-given talents and engage in meaningful discussion and fellowship with the audience.

 

WHAT DOES IT ENCOMPASS?

 

Music Forum encompasses both Classical and informal concerts throughout the series’ season. Classical concerts include a pre-concert lecture given by the conductor/artist informing the audience of the Christian significance of the work to be performed by the orchestra, choral ensemble, or recitalist.

The Stoop is an informal concert series featuring various genres such as blues, jazz, gospel, indie, pop, folk, and more in a casual, social atmosphere. Music in The Stoop music series is performed by Christians who are musicians of primarily secular music. We as an arts ministry and congregation provide quality musicians, both emerging and established artists, with opportunities to perform in an environment where the audience, artists, and congregation can fellowship. In between sets artists comfortably speak about various things including the process of songwriting from their unique, Christian perspective. The Stoop is designed to reach in a non-threatening way, not to preach aggressively. Quality music and quality relationships are key.
