For the last 14 year I have been blessed to have on my team Ed Kee. He has been active in many areas of the worship ministry at ClearView and his greatest impact is recruiting, mentoring, rehearsing and preparing instrumental teams to lead worship. Because of Ed's faithful leadership we now have an accomplished orchestra and jazz band...yes you read that right...jazz band. After over 35 years in the church music publishing business with a well known publisher, Ed has now moved on to start his own company that feeds another of his passions and meets the needs in many churches: gathering and/or creating and publishing Broadway style musicals for the church. Ed knows this genre and he sees the potential of how musical theater can be a great outreach opportunity for the local church.
I want to encourage you to check out Ed's website www.churchmusicals.com and see the great resources he can provide. In past years we have produced two of the musicals Ed has written and they have been a great success. One of those was The Gift. You can see some video of this production here.
Last week Ed sent me the following information, a special offer from churchmusicals.com to the readers of this blog. Take a look...
