The International Worship and Arts Summit will host an all day and evening event at Mt. Zion Baptist Church, located at 7594 Old Hickory Blvd., Nashville TN 37189 on February 22-24.
Award-winning singer and songwriter VaShawn Mitchell recently announced the new line up of speakers, performers and honorees for the event.
The two-day conference will include dynamic speakers, powerful teaching and gospel artists from around the country. Day classes and panels will cover a range of topics from publishing and recorded music to leading corporate worship and leadership in music ministry. The nightly sessions will be led by a diverse panel of speakers including prolific writer Israel Houghton; Rev. Jonathan Miller; conference host VaShawn Mitchell; and recognized teacher and evangelist, Dr. Jasmin Sculark (Dr. Jazz).
Other special features at this must-attend conference include evening performances from top worship and gospel artists, including: Tasha Cobbs Leonard; Casey J; Anthony Brown; JJ Hairston; and a host of others. Also on the final day of the Summit, Mitchell will put together a unique ‘Worship Together’ gathering, an acoustic worship encounter featuring both Gospel and CCM artists on one stage.
This year, Mitchell will honor CeCe Winans and Byron Cage with The Heritage Award. Throughout their respective careers both artists have been groundbreaking and vital to the growth of worship and gospel music worldwide.
Taking the helm at GHF earlier this year, Mitchell brings a fresh and bold vision to the foundation. Headed in a new direction, Mitchell hopes to expand the Gospel Heritage brand into a comprehensive and educational platform that continues to build, foster and support worship music and worship leaders.
“I’m honored to be lending my gifts to the continued building of the Gospel Heritage legacy,” said Mitchell. “It is our vision to provide a platform to educate and inspire the current and future generations of worshipers, leaders and artists. I believe the time spent receiving inspiration, instruction and impartation during the Gospel Heritage Summit will bring in a fresh energy to those ministering in churches around the country”.
