The Music Camp 2017 is the first ever recorded event in the history of PMCC 4th Watch with the aim of enhancing talents for the music ministry of the church, and to all the more be utilized in the service to our God. And the first day was indeed a success.
Starting the program was the physical warm-up led by a couple of Goodman Music staff followed by the short orientation guided by Bro. Kemuel Quillao.
Of course, the meditation of the Word of God will never be discounted in every service in the church, the campers relished the message in the spiritual seminar ministered by Pastor Leticia Ferriol. She emphasized the importance of being spiritual in the music of the church.
After this, Bro. Kem Quillao once again took over and taught some of the Fundamentals of Music. Pastor Sammy Bagcat shared some words regarding the proper music ethics and attitude to become a good musician of God.
Afternoon activities were focused on the sectional workshops to further improve the God-given talents of each delegate. The electives were divided into the following categories: song arranging, songwriting, chorale, different instruments such as piano, guitar, bass, drums, woodwind, strings; and even the technical aspect of music such as recording & editing and sound tech.
Reverberating songs and praises overflowed in the first night of the Music Camp which themed as the Music Ministry Night. Featuring our very own songs, which were sang by some of the Goodman Music Committee and by the other delegates of different local churches.
The day was then concluded by the meditation of the Word of God ministered by Pastor Ruben Ventura. He shared the purpose and power of music in the church. This encouraged the delegates to enrich their talents to be used more in service for the Lord. (E. Evangelista)
