First, we want to thank God for blessing this ministry for the past 17 years. We thank God for the support of pastors, church community and corporate sponsors. We praise God to have anointed and committed leaders from area churches that assist in organizing this great annual music and arts workshop experience for our youth and youth leaders. Their commitment to this ministry is a blessing.
As you already know, we present these workshops solely on your contributions. These funds help us to cover expenses such as: facilitators, musicians, publicity, audio production, and hospitality.
We are asking each church to contribute a minimum fee of $250.00. Your love gift is a show of support for this great learning opportunity. From this experience leaders are born, new leaders encouraged and old leadership values renewed. This is the only city/countywide music and arts program for YOUTH in the capitol city that caters to youth from the age 8 to 18. We meet every Saturday for eight weeks.
We need your donations. Encourage your youth to be a part of this program. Less fortunate young people will benefit through our sponsorship enrollment program as a result of your donations.
This year we are offering the following workshops:
6.) Praise Dancing
7.) Youth Mass Choir
8.) Public Speaking
10.) Adult Music and Arts Classes
Adult Classes are now available: Workshops begin on Saturday March 2
and end May 3, 2013
