Unique internship brings local musicians to church

Even multicultural and economically diverse congregations tend to sing gospel songs, hymns and contemporary Christian music based in (or adapted to) Western European structures and harmonies. Such music, while comfortably multicultural for the American mainstream, does not represent the African-American experience or tradition. To address that gap, David Bailey, music director at the East End Fellowship church in Richmond, Va., worked with his church leadership to develop an annual summer internship for local musicians who are steeped in contemporary black music. Explore the initiative and its outcomes, access related stories, connect to additional resources and consider the discussion prompts offered in an article about how one pastor brought contemporary music to his church community, written by Joan Huyser-Honig and posted on the website of the Calvin Institute of Christian Worship, an initiative committed to Christian worship renewal in the Trinitarian tradition.
