Creativity in Music & Worship: Break Free of the Stems in Worship - Get Creative!
Dr. Richard Hickam
Location: Durango 2
Many churches are using stems in worship and that’s ok. But that’s just it, it’s ok. God created us to be creative. Don’t be afraid to try and expand the possibility of what could be. New Spirit-led music initiatives often begin as experiments or even modifying existing trends. Dr. Hickam will provide examples and resources to re-energize the music in your worship services. Ideas about creative vocals, instrumentation, and genres will be used. Richard has a doctorate in worship studies and a master’s degree in music education. He is the Music & Worship Pastor at WholeLife Church in Orlando and the Corporate Director for Music & the Arts at AdventHealth, a healthcare system with 50 hospitals in 11 states.
