First Apostolic Church participates in music festival

The First Apostolic Church of Maryville’s Music Department received a high honor recently when Lindel M. Anderson, Indiana Bible College (IBC) Dean of Music, invited the Sanctuary Choir, Praise & Worship Team, and staff members to participate in the college’s annual Music Festival, April 11-13, in Indianapolis, Indiana. The invitation was extended to Chad Erickson, an IBC alumnus, and FAC’s Assistant Pastor.

The Music Festival is a 3-day conference with over 90 classes designed to challenge and inspire those involved in church music and dramatic arts ministries. The conference is a ministry of Indiana Bible College and is hosted by Calvary Tabernacle in Indianapolis, Indiana. The teaching staff includes more than 60 of the most outstanding music ministers, drama directors, musicians, songwriters, and recording artists in the Apostolic movement. This year Chad Erickson and his wife, Fallon Erickson, FAC Music Director, were invited to participate as teaching clinicians for the conference.

A highlight of the conference is the evening concert which showcases singers and musicians from around the United States. The 3,000-seat auditorium of Calvary Tabernacle was packed each night. On Thursday evening Chad Erickson, nine members of the Praise and Worship Team, along with the 8-member FAC Band, led praise and worship by performing two songs. On Friday evening, 120 members of the FAC Sanctuary Choir, along with the band, took the stage to perform "Hallelujah," directed by Penny Carpenter, choir director; and "I Want It All Back," directed by Chad Erickson.
Choir members were treated to nice overnight lodging accommodations in Indianapolis hotels, and returned home on Saturday evening. Transportation was provided by FAC’s Silver Eagle Bus, Mini-Bus, and choir member’s private vehicles. Special thanks to the volunteer bus and mini-bus drivers who always do such a great job.
