Story & Song is a call for creative people in The Brethren Church to submit work from their God-given talents and passions for the betterment of the entire body. The Brethren Church is calling for songs, lyrics, stories, essays, paintings, photographs, sculptures, poetry and more. We believe that the Church needs a creative outpouring. We believe the Church has a new song. We believe that God has placed more talent and giftings in our movement than we are aware of.
Story & Song will seek to gather our creatives together, collaboratively creating corporate worship albums, and exhibiting artistic work. We'll foster the development of abilities, collaborative times and more as the movement grows.
Story & Song has been a wonderful success in recent years. Exhibiting dozens of painting, photography, and sculpture pieces at General Conference, The Brethren Church also released an album of worship music written by and for Brethren people. You can purchase/stream that worship music at any of the links below:
Rules / Guidelines
|We suggest submitting works that exemplify some of the Biblical themes or values that Brethren have historically been identified by: simplicity, peace, humility, etc.||You are encouraged to submit partial works, especially in the songwriting category. Full songs, hooks/choruses, one-liners, chord progressions and melody lines are all welcome as submissions.|
|Selections from the songwriting category will favor corporate worship, both in lyrics and in style.||Please include a chord progression document with your submission, either in notation or in Nashville number style.|
|All works should be submitted through digital medium. For physical works of art, please submit a digital picture, and if selected for use, we’ll make arrangements for the actual piece.|
