The Fellowship hosts two national events: the annual Music & Worship Arts Week and a biennial national convocation.
Wondering which event is right for you?
Music & Worship Arts Week, held at Lake Junaluska Conference & Retreat Center in North Carolina, is a week-long event designed for those who want to participate by dancing, ringing, singing, and/or acting. Work with top-level leadership in age-level choirs, handbell choirs, and dance and drama groups. Inspiring worship services, choral reading sessions, and seminars round out the schedule.
The Biennial National Convocation is for those who want to learn about worship arts in new and exciting ways. Large group lectures (plenaries), concerts, and worship services are the backbone of this event. While not heard to active participation, classes offer practical helps in various arts ministries and will inspire you to create, not just re-create. This event is an excellent opportunity for preachers, musicians, and worship artists to attend an event together and multiply the effect back home.
In addition to our two national events, our Chapters host a variety of events at the regional level, ranging from festivals to workshops to retreats and everything in between.
The national Fellowship Board and Event Design Team have made the very difficult decision that we will not hold our 202One event at Lake Junaluska in June 2021. We are extremely thankful for the understanding that the leadership of Lake Junaluska brought to this process and decision.
The 202One event was to feature the best of Music & Worship Arts Week and our National Convocation and to unite us in one large event that would be spiritually fulfilling, programmatically exciting, and financially successful. As we make this decision, the pandemic conditions do not allow us sufficient assurance that we can meet those goals.
For more information about this decision, view our full statement on our 202One event website.
Our Fellowship Chapters are a great connection point for members at the regional level. Our chapters host events ranging from choral and handbell festivals to day-long workshops and retreats.
