The ILC choir was blessed to have Bro. David Howell from Indiana as our guest choir clinician. Starting on Tuesday and going through Sunday, he worked with the music team and vocalists as we learned seven brand new songs. Thank you to the musicians and choir for all of the hard work! God met with us on both Friday night at SoCal Sings and on Sunday night. Thanks for letting God use you!
Judah Effect 2021, our annual music workshop, was incredible! We had almost 200 registrants and eight anointed clinicians who shared practical and spiritual knowledge about worship and the effect of our praise. Multiple churches from California, Arizona, and Indiana were represented.
Bro. David Howell encouraged us to strive for excellence. Sis. Lorraine Bertram asked where the minstrels are and charged us with seeking the anointing and remembering that we are God’s vessel to minister to His Church. Bro. Josh Winkler spoke to us about “Crippled Hands, Closed Mouths” where he instructed us to not “let the voice of your adversary be louder than your voice. Your mouth needs to be bigger than your enemy’s mouth.”
We were also blessed by Sis. Erica Marxer who taught in Children’s music and administrative apps that help organize a music department, Sis. Kacey Lynn Clark’s vocal expertise and a rhythm class taught by the talented Bro. Seth Clark and Bro. Gentry DeCosta. In the songwriting class facilitated by Sis. Jana McVay, there 4 new songs birthed about God meeting us in the shadow.
A special thank you to the Judah Effect staff: Marissa McVay, Jessica McVay, Ashley Bennett, Lora Winkler, Alexis Dukes, Amanda Thomas, Billy Blair, Justin McVay, Joyanna Blair, Delaney Reighard, Darilyn Reighard, Frances Vasquez, Liz Machuca, Sabrina Tirado, Gracie Tirado, and Alexis Lomeli.
