Here are two exciting opportunities from inSpire, an arts initiative sponsored by the Pacific Union Conference.

We’re looking for new worship songs to include with the old favorites. The Psalmist invites us to “Sing a new song to the Lord.” If you are an Adventist songwriter, or have songwriters in your church, please let them know about the inSpire 2016 songwriting contest. Prizes will be given for the top three songs! Click the link for details!


InSpire conference 2016InSpire Weekend 2016

The inSpire weekend (April 15-17, 2016), at Carmichael Seventh-day Adventist Church in Sacramento, CA, is an awesome experience that is open to all. It is especially intended for Adventist creatives (artists, musicians, photographers, poets, songwriters, videographers and writers, etc.) who have a passion to use their craft in healing ways.

This is an event where we celebrate and explore the creative process, especially within the realm of spirituality, and affirm those who want to use their gifts to share God’s story.

PLEASE NOTE: If you are coming from outside of Sacramento for any part of the inSpire weekend, or wish to get on our FREE eNews  mailing list, register now! It’s all FREE! And songwriters, you DO NOT have to attend to participate in the Songwriting Contest.
