I really do not go to many conferences; however, one that I have attended for several years now is the Kentucky Baptist Convention Music Conference. This conference usually runs in conjunction with the KBC Pastors conference. One of the main highlights, for me, is that this conference is totally driven by Ministers of Music/Worship Leaders and for Ministers of Music/Worship Leaders. All the topics and breakout sessions are brought to the table by a committee of officers. In essence, the conference is peer designed and thus peer lead. This tells me that the topics that are presented here are topics that are currently on the minds of my fellow Ministers of Music.
As a Minister of Music in the Kentucky Baptist Convention, you are invited to join the Kentucky Baptist Music Conference. The purpose of the KBMC is to encourage Christian fellowship among Kentucky Baptist music leaders and to promote the ministry of music in our church and in our denomination. Membership is open to all Baptist church musicians, Baptist music educators and other interested persons.
