The mission of our Musician in Residence program is to provide space for local musicians to create (teach, write, and practice) and showcase (in worship, outreach/concerts, and educational workshops/masterclasses) their music in exchange for “in-reach” and “out-reach,” resulting in bringing people together through a common love of music in a safe and sacred space.
- The MiR program enables South Church to:
Enhance music and the arts for people of all ages in a welcoming environment
- Expand and diversify musical and artistic offerings to engage listeners on a deeper level
- Promote musical and artistic offerings as an outreach to the greater community
- Foster unique communication and expression among those who love music
- Provide spiritual and educational experiences through sacred music
- The MiR program enables South Church to provide support to local artists by:
Providing space to create, teach, rehearse, and showcase their work
