Worship Matters: Episode 46 - Rebuilding Church Choirs after the Pandemic

By Diana Sanchez-Bushong

The impact of the year-plus-long pandemic on singing in the church and on choirs in particular is difficult to overstate. Dr. Diana Sanchez-Bushong, Director of Music Ministries, gathered a panel of church musicians for a conversation on where we go from here with the church choir. Kevin McBeth, Director of Music and Worship Arts, Manchester UMC, St. Louis, Missouri; Rev. Amy Martin, Minister of Music, Reidland UMC, Paducah, Kentucky; Keum Hwang, Minister of Worship, First UMC, Heath, Texas; James Wells, Director of Choral Ministries, Brentwood UMC, Nashville, Tennessee; and Rebecca Garret Pace, Minister of Worship & The Arts, White Rock UMC, Dallas, Texas, share ideas and strategies and hope for the future of choirs in worship. Join us for this lively conversation.

“Worship Matters” is a podcast from the worship team of Discipleship Ministries, designed to deal with the intricacies of planning worship each week. Hosted by Dr. Cynthia Wilson, Executive Director of Worship Ministries and the Director of Liturgical Ministries; Dr. Diana Sanchez-Bushong, Director of Music Ministries; and Dr. Derek Weber, Director of Preaching Ministries, this podcast explores how to plan worship using the common lectionary while creating worship experiences and series that are engaging, relevant, and adaptable for any church setting.
