Greetings!  

Hope your summer is filled with warm blessings!! It is a wonderful time of year, and extra busy for all of our Divisional Youth, Music, and Creative Arts Directors out there - in the HEAT of running the summer camps and conservatories!

I trust that God is revealing Himself in new and powerful ways as you all strive to follow His leading in the ministry you are in.

Commissioning June 4-5, 2011
Territorial Creative Arts Ensemble
Words cannot express how powerfully the Holy Spirit moved amongst the TCAE as they prepared and participated in Commissioning!

Once again the TCAE were given the humbling responsibility of working with the Territorial Band, Songsters, and transMission numerous times throughout the weekend. You may not know, but the TCAE do not fly in for the event until two days prior, in which they have to learn all the material!!!!

Saturday morning consisted of two presentations. The first being a dance purposed to enhance the worship experience for the congregation, as they joined in song with transMission during the 15 minute segment entitled "Bless Your Name"

The second piece Saturday morning, "Hymnody: Journey to Holiness" was a 15 choroedrama arranged by Nick Simmons-Smith for the Territorial Band, Songsters, and transMission. The TCAE were moved to the core, as they sought to represent the 'everymans' journey to Holiness.

They then quickly made it to the March of Witness in Marietta, where they performed the script "God is for Everyone" and offered face painting, stilt walking, and color guard routines.

Following the march of witness the TCAE hurried to change into their Victorian costumes to provide pre and post show lobby entertainment for the musical Our People.

It didn't stop there!! TCAE, for the first time, were given the awesome opportunity to join with the cadets in praise as the Ambassadors of Holiness took to the platform. Setting the Cobb Energy Center as Holy Ground.

Praise God for an amazing weekend!
