Give The Gift

Training Teenage Worship Leaders

Animate, our fifth-annual program in worship leadership, will take place June 25-29, 2018.

Using biblical, Christ- centered principles, students hone worship leadership skills, adults sharpen their mentoring tools, and everybody works together to reflect on the intersection between worship, theology, and the arts.

Animate is sponsored by the Center for Worship and the Arts at Samford University in Birmingham, Alabama. We are grateful for the faithful support of C.I.O.S. and the Lilly Endowment, Inc., without whom we would not be entering our fifth year of Animate.

Our goal for Animate 2018 is to expand the program while maintaining the level of excellence participants have come to expect and keeping costs to individual campers as low as possible. Team registration for Animate 2018 is $449/person.

Thanks to the generosity of additional donors in previous years, we have been able to award a limited number of student scholarships for Animate 2018. Would you help make that a reality for Animate 2018?

Your tax-deductible gift would essentially help train the next generation of worship leaders.
