Florida

The Florida Chapter of The Fellowship is a group of musicians, artists, and dancers who are passionate about worship. Although most of us value so-called "traditional worship," and we all have our personal preferences, we are open to contemporary worship, emerging worship, and other styles of worship that give us opportunities to use our creative gifts to honor and present Jesus Christ.

The Florida Chapter is one of the largest Fellowship chapters and sponsors an annual multi-generational Church Music Workshop that emphasizes worship arts as well as spiritual renewal. Adults and youth from Florida and the Southeast join together for this summertime, week-long workshop that brings nationally known choral and handbell clinicians together with worship leaders, choir and handbell directors, visual artists, dancers, and youth and adult choir members.

The chapter's current president is Jeffrey Faux (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.).

Illinois Great Rivers

The purpose of the Illinois Great Rivers Conference chapter of the Fellowship is to transform the world through worship. We embrace the sacramental life and affirm that worship arts are a primary means of worshiping God.

The IGRC chapter seeks to be a resource to local churches and the annual conference in the areas of worship arts. Festivals and workshops in various worship arts areas (including an annual handbell festival, a choral festival, preaching, keyboard, and other workshops) allow the chapter to reach a variety of church worship staff and lay artists.
