Louisiana Christian to host student worship collaborative

Calling all high school church musicians and worship leaders to join us at Louisiana Christian University!

LCU will host its inaugural Nex Gen Worship Collaborative on Feb. 23-24. High school-aged praise bands will have the unique opportunity to visit campus and share their music while receiving quality feedback from our clinicians.

All participants will be considered for LCU scholarships.

“There are many students, throughout Louisiana and beyond, who are deeply involved in music outside of the school day at home and in churches, yet they likely have few opportunities to play in a setting like this,” said Jacob Wittkopp, coordinator of Department of Fine Arts. “We seek to do our part in helping to engage and equip the future generation of worship leaders.”

Next Gen Worship Collaborative provides a place where students can share their talents and walk away with new inspiration and a broadened community.

“We want to provide an outlet for youth praise bands to grow and learn more about worship and how to play skillfully,” said LCU President Dr. Rick Brewer.  “This annual event will also provide students with in-depth information regarding LCU’s new Worship Arts and Production major. “

Praise bands may register from churches, youth groups or schools. The event will be held in Guinn Auditorium on LCU’s campus in Pineville.
