5 Reasons to Develop an Internship Program

Internship programs are not a new fad, trend or concept.  In fact, internships, also known as apprenticeships, are prominently found in the old and new testaments of the Bible.  Think about the amazing training, nurturing and guidance that Joshua received from Moses or Elisha from Elijah.  Consider the same of Paul’s training of Silas and Timothy or the amazing life lessons that Jesus taught the disciples.  In essence, internships present the opportunity for practical training in real time within a real setting dealing with real people.  Whether in biblical times, or in contemporary settings such as within vocational, nonprofit or corporate situations, internships provide a safe and nurturing space to learn, to test interest, to expand social network and in some cases to seize opportunities previously unknown.  Although most competitive and prestigious internships are often compensated, there are many valuable opportunities that are partially compensated through a fixed stipend or not compensated at all.  Most internship programs last between 6-12 weeks while others may last as long as 6 months.  All internships, however, should have a formal vetting process that includes an application and an interview.

Here are 5 reasons why your church might consider developing an internship program:

Invest in Rising Talent

From the gifted individuals within your congregation to the amazingly talented members of your neighborhood (who have no opportunity to share their God-given gifts), our churches should serve as an incubator for rising talent.  Internships can offer a mutually beneficial, safe space where talented individuals can offer their gifts to God through service.  Internship programs offer a lucrative opportunity for congregations to invest in rising talent.

Groom Future Leaders

Through a structured and selective vetting process, congregations have the privilege to serve as a training ground to groom future leaders through providing leadership development and creating spaces for future leaders to serve.  Potential leaders are born everyday but most will never have the opportunity to be nurtured, developed and groomed into their greatness.  Internship programs offer an opportunity to groom future leaders.

Prevent Future Personnel Shortage

Across the country and beyond, churches of all sizes routinely lament shortages of personnel and talent.  Whether congregations seek musicians, choral directors, liturgical dance directors or other expressive arts ministry members, there is a trend towards shortages of not only personnel and talent but also for a variety of opportunities and experiences for the gifted and talented individuals seeking to serve as leaders.  For smaller congregations with limited financial resources but with an abundance of wise, knowledgeable and experienced servant leaders, an internship program is a wonderful opportunity to share your wealth.  Likewise, medium sized and larger congregations who are interested in pursuing a new area of ministry or looking for seasonal assistance can equally benefit from an internship program.

Potential Succession Plan

Internship programs can aid in creating a training environment for a potential successor to a transitioning member (or leader) of your current team.  Regardless of the rank, title or tenure, people are always in transition and a constant flow of interns could aid your congregation in not only experiencing the diversity of God’s gifting but also identify someone who might be invited back at some later point in order to serve in a longer capacity.

Share God’s Blessing of Success in Ministry

If your congregation has been abundantly blessed with vision, talent and success in developing best practices and effective strategies in ministry, why wouldn’t you open the doors to share with those who are interested, willing and ready to learn from you?  Internships can be a phenomenal experience for those who are interested in learning from you and your congregation.  Equally, an internship program can provide an amazing opportunity for your congregation to share God’s blessing of success in ministry.

Stay tuned as we discuss more about Internship Programs in our next post.  As always, if we can be of assistance don’t hesitate to be in touch.

Recap of Theological Reflection and Critical Dialogue Symposium (November 16, 2014)

This past November our symposium, Theological Reflection and Critical Dialogue on the Practice of Worship in the 21st Century was held on the gorgeous campus of Andover Newton Theological Seminary to an audience of sixty.  Eight traveled from New York, one from Georgia and another from Kentucky to join the Boston-based initiative with the goal of stimulating worship renewal in our local congregations through theological reflection and critical dialogue.

The half-day event began with a welcome by our visionary founder and president, Rev. Dr. Emmett G. Price III who shared, “transformation and renewal are the result of intentional focus and a commitment to study and prayer.  After we study and pray we must come together and exchange ideas, thoughts, best practices and strategies so that everyone grows.  Ministry should not be competitive!”  Following Dr. Price was Rev. Dr. Adam Hearlson, Assistant Professor of Preaching and Worship and the Director of Wilson Chapel at Andover Newton who offered an inspiring opening prayer challenging attendees to be open to the move of God.

SS0C9125

Dr. Ouida Harding, visionary and founder of Ouida W. Harding Ministries captivated, challenged and inspired all with her uniquely persuasive and well researched presentation, “Reuniting the Levities.”  Ordained as the first Minister of Music for Worship in the Baptist Denomination, the Robert E. Webber Institute for Worship Studies graduate offered insightful commentary on how we define worship as an active engagement while also understanding the role of praise within the context of worship.  Drawing from biblical evidence, Dr. Harding challenged the attendees to pay attention to the priorities of ministry and to not allow the music to get in the way of the heart.  “Our responsibility is to be prepared to serve as catalysts for transformation.”  Dr. Harding offered useful ideas, strategies and great ministry teaching aids.  Some of the material is available through Dr. Harding’s book, Choir Call! A New Approach to an Old Problem: Workshop and Training Guide for the Ministry-minded Choir Member (Guardian Books, 2013).  Dr. Harding’s keynote will soon be available on DVD through our BCMMP website.

After a short break attendees were split into three different critical dialogue breakout sessions in order to process, reflect and then discuss Dr. Harding’s keynote.  Clergy and seminarians gathered with Rev. James E. Dove, Pastor of the historic Congdon Street Baptist Church in Providence, Rhode Island.  Music ministry leaders and musicians met with Dr. Dennis L. Slaughter, Director of Music at Parkway United Methodist Church in Milton, Massachusetts.  Choir members, worship leaders and laypersons joined by Sis. Patricia Dance, executive assistant to the pastor and music department coordinator at St. Paul African Methodist Episcopal in Cambridge, Massachusetts.  Each of the breakout sessions were both moving and empowering as each broke the solitude of service and aided in building camaraderie and unity amongst servants of different houses of worship.  Each cluster affirmed the half-day event as extremely useful and timely.

Join us on May 31, 2014 at 9:00 AM on the campus of Andover Newton Theological School for Practical Applications and Training for 21st Century Worship: A Music Ministry Symposium.  More information can be found on our website.

The Need for Theological Reflection

The preparation, training and nurturing of music ministry leaders within the Black Church is a topic that receives more reactive lament than active discussion.  When things go array we talk a lot.  Yet, we spend limited time and energy creating environments of success for leaders.  For many generations, music ministry leaders have been selected and hired based on past performance rather than on their unleashed potential.  This is a bad model.  Many churches select leaders with amazing instrumental/ vocal giftedness yet with limited training in administration, relationship management, or actual leadership training.  This, too, is a bad model.  Although there are numerous conferences, conventions, and annual meetings doing amazing jobs at preparing songwriters, worship leaders, praise leaders, composers, arrangers, directors, conductors, section leaders, musicians (including vocalists) there is so much more to music ministry than repertoire and performance practice.  Music ministry within the Black Church carries a rich legacy of numerous Black theological perspectives including unique manifestations of theologies of liberation, sufficiency and equality.  Within our church music traditions reside a long and wide biblical heritage connecting contemporary leadership roles and functions to the innovations of God through the Levites.  Our Black church music traditions reveal the hope of ages past while simultaneously presenting prophetic visions for the future.  Our music has the power to heal, empower and encourage as well as to inspire us to pray, praise and promulgate the favor of God.  Our traditions are powerful forces that must be learned, understood and then extended by music ministry leaders who realize that repertoire and performance practice are fragments of the totality of music ministry.  Music ministry leaders of the 21st century must be well versed in cultural history, theology and of course the bible.  Yes, music ministry leaders must be well versed in the Bible!

Leadership in music ministry is as precocious as it is precarious.  There are so many areas of training that we can invest in that will lead to effective leadership and worship renewal.  Leadership in ministry is a privilege that must be balanced by measurements of accountability, obedience to God (and subsequently to one’s pastor/ bishop/ supervising elder), integrity and a commitment to excellence through life-long learning.  Leaders are servants whose record of service and ability to lead establish them as worthy of being followed.

As we move forward in the 21st century we must take more time to prepare, train and nurture current and next generation leaders.  Some areas of exploration have been mentioned.  However, one great place to start is through theological reflection.  When was the last time you brought your entire music/ worship ministry together to reflect on whether the theology expressed through music ministry is consistent and clearly aligned with the theology that is preached.  Do your musicians, directors and entire music ministry understand, believe and agree with the “theology of the house?”  Whether you are Worship Pastor, Minister of Music, Director of Music Ministry, Choir Director, section leader, soloist, worship leader, praise team singer, choir member, or a part of the music/ worship committee, theological reflection is a tremendous opportunity for growth.

Join us in the Greater Boston Area/ New England Region on November 16, 2013 on the gorgeous campus of Andover Newton Theological School (our presenting sponsor) as we host a half-day symposium titled, Theological Reflection and Critical Dialogue on the Practice of Worship in the 21st Century (click here for more information).

The Black Church Music Ministry Project Opens Invitation for November Symposium

For Immediate Release   

The Black Church Music Ministry Project Opens Invitation
for November Symposium

Theological Reflection and Critical Dialogue on the
Practice of Worship in the 21st Century,
a half-day symposium, will take place on Nov. 16

BOSTON—Sept. 10, 2013The Black Church Music Ministry Project (BCMMP), in conjunction with presenting sponsor, Andover Newton Theological School (ANTS), invites greater Boston area pastors, ministers, scholars, seminarians, music ministry leaders, musicians, choir directors, vocalists and laypersons to  engage in THEOLOGICAL REFLECTION AND CRITICAL DIALOGUE ON THE PRACTICE OF WORSHIP IN THE 21st CENTURY. The half-day symposium will take place on the gorgeous campus of Andover Newton Theological School (210 Herrick Road, Newton Centre, Mass. 02459) on Saturday, Nov. 16, 2013 from 9:00 AM to 12:00 PM.  Admission for this event is $25.  Group Rates are available.

With ANTS, BCMMP is convening the symposium both as part of its commitment to serving, nurturing and developing spiritual leaders within music ministry and to aid as a catalyst for worship renewal in our local and area churches. Participants are invited to register online here.

“It is time for us to have open and honest conversation about the current state of worship in our churches.  It is time to reflect on what has worked, to share what is working and to assure that the theology that is presented through expressive arts ministries is in alignment to the theology that is preached,”  explained BCMMP president and founder Rev. Emmett G. Price III, Ph.D. and Associate Professor of Music, Northeastern University.

“Andover Newton Theological School has long been committed to forming imaginative and able worship leaders,” added Adam Hearlson, Assistant Professor of Preaching and Director of Wilson Chapel. “It is our pleasure to partner with BCMMP and support their valuable mission of training worship leaders in the greater Boston area.”

The confirmed keynote for the session is Dr. Ouida Harding, an ordained “Minister of Music for Worship” who is also the visionary and founder of Ouida W. Harding Ministries, “a training consortium for persons who dare to rethink the possible by setting standards in music ministry leadership for the 21st century and beyond.”

Following the keynote, Critical Dialogue sessions will be facilitated by Rev. James E. Dove (Pastor, Congdon Street Baptist Church, Providence); Dr. Dennis Slaughter (Founder & Artistic Director, Boston Community Choir and Artistic Director, Boston Pops Gospel Choir); and Sis. Patricia Dance (Music Department Coordinator and Executive Assistant to the Pastor of St. Paul AME Church; and Co-founder, Coordinator of the NEC Millennium Gospel Choir).  Each will challenge participants to examine, ponder and discuss how we do what we do with the sole goal of initiating conversations that can be taken back to local congregations to aid in worship renewal.

According to Price, who also serves as pastor of Community of Love Christian Fellowship (Allston, Mass.), “There are thousands if not millions of people in this region who need to hear, feel, touch, smell and taste the gospel, and it is our goal to make sure we do diligence in having the challenging conversations that will lead to more powerful ministry.”
This symposium is one of two slated for the 2013-2014 season.  The second, to be held in the spring, will focus on “best practice trainings” in a number of areas relative to music ministry.

We’re Back in Action!!!

It has been awhile since we have been in consistent communication via our blog, social media or email, so I am certain that news of our recent Calvin Institute of Christian Worship grant may have come as a surprise.  Like most other non-profits the past few years have been challenging as economic resources, particularly within some of our churches have grown limited, if not scarce.  Nevertheless, let me assure you that we never left your side and in fact we were busier than ever as an invited guest to panels and conferences; doing tons of consulting; conducting church leadership trainings; facilitating Music Ministry retreats and serving a number of congregations across the country both in person and digitally.  We’ve been so busy that we’ve expanded our team.  Over the next few months as we re-ignite our regular communications via blogging, email and social media, you will hear from a number of additional voices that we are proud to have the privilege to present.  Stay tuned and spread the word as we embark on a new season of “serving, nurturing and developing spiritual leaders within music ministry.”  We’re back in action and ready to serve!  Check out our website, peruse the resources we have to offer and plan to join us on November 16, 2013 at Andover Newton Theological School as we present a half-day symposium titled, Theological Reflection and Critical Dialogue on the Practice of Worship in the 21st Century (more information to come).  In the meantime, let us know how we can serve you!

The Black Church Music Ministry Project Receives Prestigious Grant from the Calvin Institute of Christian Worship

The Black Church Music Ministry Project Receives Prestigious Grant from the

Calvin Institute of Christian Worship

With the support of presenting sponsor Andover Newton Theological School, the grant will fund two major symposia to bring music ministry thought leaders together in dialogue

Boston – August 1, 2013 – The Black Church Music Ministry Project (BCMMP) has received a worship renewal grant from the Calvin Institute of Christian Worship (CICW) in Grand Rapids, Mich.

The grant will fund a year-long project in which the Black Church Music Ministry Project will present two major symposia (Nov. 16 and May 31) in the Greater Boston area. With the support of presenting sponsor Andover Newton Theological School (ANTS), each symposium will bring together leaders in the area of music ministry and serve as a space for dialogue, fellowship and community collaboration in support of BCMMP’s mission to serve, nurture and develop spiritual leaders within music ministry. The grant is one of 28 awards totaling more than $300,000 awarded for 2013 by the CICW to churches, schools and seminaries across North America.

“These projects have much to teach us,” said CICW director John Witvliet, “and we are eager to learn from them. But we know too that worship renewal is not something that human ingenuity or creativity alone can produce or engineer. It is a gift of God’s Spirit, a gift for which we pray, rather than an accomplishment we achieve. So, even as we announce these grants, and as we look forward to the work these recipients will do in the coming year, we also pray.”

“We are very grateful to receive this generous grant from CICW and thrilled to collaborate with ANTS to bring our organization’s vision to fruition,” said Dr. Emmett G. Price III, President and Founder, BCMMP. “With this support, we are able to further our goal of empowering and inspiring ministry leaders by bringing together leading minds for reflection and planning over the course of the coming year.”

The first symposium, Theological Reflection and Critical Dialogue on the Practice of Worship in the 21st Century, will take place on the ANTS campus on Nov. 16. A keynote will be followed by breakout sessions led by distinguished leaders that will offer time for facilitated conversation amongst clergy; managing music ministry leaders & musicians; as well as choir members, worship leaders and laity.

“Andover Newton Theological School has long been committed to forming imaginative and able worship leaders,” said Adam Hearlson, Assistant Professor of Preaching and Director of Wilson Chapel. “It is our pleasure to partner with BCMMP and support their valuable mission of training worship leaders in the greater Boston area.”

The CICW’s Worship Renewal Grants program is now in its 14th year and has seen more than 600 projects funded since its inception.

“This year,” said Betty Grit, manager of the Worship Renewal Grants program, “the CICW received proposals from 16 denominations, 24 states and four Canadian provinces.”

An advisory board of pastors and teachers from a variety of backgrounds assisted in the grant selection and the 28 proposals being funded represent congregations and schools from 11 denominations in 15 states and two Canadian provinces.

The Worship Renewal Grants Program is generously supported by Indianapolis-based Lilly Endowment Inc. Founded in 1937, the Endowment’s major areas of concern are community development, education, and religion.

BCMMP Remembers Maestro Royzell L. Dillard

BCMMP mourns the loss of friend and colleague, Royzell L. Dillard.  A lauded educator, esteemed performer and highly regarded mentor, “Mr. Dillard” leaves a tremendous legacy through the lives of many in whom he invested much time, energy and inspiration.  A native of Tennessee, Dillard matriculated from Memphis’ Hamilton High School and journeyed to Virginia where he completed a BA in Psychology and MME (Music Education) from Hampton Institute (1983) and Hampton University (1988) respectively.  At the time of his passing, Dillard was in the process of completing a DMA in Music Education from Shenandoah Conservatory.

Since 1986, Dillard served Hampton University and surrounding communities in a host of capacities including: Assistant Professor of Music, Director of University Choirs and Minister of Music at Hampton University’s Memorial Church.  His jubilant spirit was matched by his stern pursuit for excellence.  Following in the steps of the great exemplars that guided him, Dillard developed a unique approach to challenging his students to unimagined greatness through the sincere pursuit of self-respect, integrity and academic achievement.  Dillard not only demanded students to execute, but he also mandated that they execute with intentionality, purpose and with conviction.  A scholar of the African American experience through music, Dillard was well versed as an educator and an extremely versatile performer.  Equally skilled at singing arias, spirituals, art songs, hymns, jazz standards and gospel songs (traditional and contemporary), his baritone/ bass voice was known for its strikingly brilliant use of just enough technique to reveal his depth of training and just enough power to reveal his width of life experience: an amazing combination that always brought the music to life.

In 2000, Dillard was chosen to serve as co-director of the Hampton University Ministers’ Conference and Choir Directors’ & Organists’ Guild along side Dr. James Abbington.  Equally committed to the training of future leaders in music ministry, the two launched the Church Music Academy in 2001; an endeavor where both committed time, energy and resources to intellectually stimulate and spiritually guide collegiate students from all over the country in an empowering and practical setting.  The Ministers’ conference and the Church Music Academy are only two of the many outlets through which Dillard shared, groomed, guided and empowered.  His life was a living testament of service.

Many musicians, choral directors, musicians, pastors and ministers of music around the country (and the world) are grateful and indebted to Mr. Dillard.  The entire Hampton University Family, the Hampton Ministers’ Conference and Choir Directors’ & Organists’ Guild will forever miss him.  Still, for many more of us who simply knew him as “Roy,” we too, will miss our dear friend, fellow musician and fraternity brother. We thank God for the gift and blessing of Maestro Royzell L. Dillard.
