Respectful Relationships: a webinar for worship leaders and musicians, September 26, 12pm EDT

We’re excited to announce that Music United, in partnership with the Edge Network of The United Church of Canada, is hosting its first webinar! A chance for everyone involved in worship and music leadership in the church to gather and talk about important issues. Here’s a description:

Respectful Relationships
A “Call”: which leader feels the greater sense of call? In co-leadership, how do we all get
along?  How do we balance the use of power, unique congregational cultures, and service to the Creator? How do we help make each other’s expression of ministry a collegial, positive and fulfilling experience? Join panel volunteers Fred Graham, Jason Locke, Rev. Bill Steadman, and Patricia Wright as they explore issues, resolutions and healthy relationship pointers during this open discussion.

You can register free of charge for the event and access the webinar on the day at http://edge.united-church.ca/webinars/events/music-united/

Please join us on September 26 at 12pm EDT, and help us spread the word!
