We hear time and again that one of the most impactful things that The Fellowship helps make possible for our members is the relationships that are built through the different events and programs we offer. Colleagues are introduced. Common passions and purposes are identified. Friendships are built. Creativity is unleashed. And with each new year, we rediscover what a blessing it is to be in ministry together to offer transformative worship experiences that glorify God.
These relationships, and the avenues for collaboration which they provide, continue to inspire new ideas and opportunities for our organization. As a result, there are many exciting things happening over the coming year in the life of The Fellowship of Worship Artists, and they help make this the perfect time to welcome new members into our Fellowship community. Lynne Stallworth, Nancy Farrington, and Bodie Gilbert are here to invite you to partner with the Fellowship Board as we begin our 2023 Membership Campaign.
So, will you join us on the #RoadTo400? It really is easy! Here are a few easy ways you can help make the 2023 Membership Campaign a success:
Share via your social media!
Share information about us with your friends and colleagues via social media. Share our posts. Share our website. Share links to the event pages for Music & Worship Arts Week and Convocation 2023! Let them know that with the launch of our new program, Fellowship Connections, there are built-in mechanisms for them to meet other worship artists and be cultivated and equipped by our national network and ever-expanding array of resources.
If you're not sure what to share on social media, you can simply share the items we post on our Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter pages.

Your stories are what connect other people to us, to each other, and to God. Your stories make a difference in the life of this organization, and the lives that are touched by our community. Tell your story!
No matter how, or where, or with whom you share the story of The Fellowship of Worship Artists on social media, please make sure to include these two hashtags so that we know and can share your stories, too! #RoadTo400 #BeTheFellowship.
Send a text message!
Another great way to spread the word is to take your cell phone out and send a simple text message to three of your ministry colleagues - music directors, tech teams, pastors, etc. It really couldn't get any easier than that...unless we gave you the wording to simply copy and paste! Which we have:
Have you heard about The Fellowship of Worship Artists? I am a member and I think you should consider joining us. You'd love the national events, online resources, and all of the people who are part of this ecumenical organization. If you want more information, I'd be happy to tell chat with you; or you can visit the website, www.thefellowshipowa.org, and learn more about the resources that are available, as well as the upcoming events for 2023. You can also check them out on social media @thefellowshipowa. Let me know if you have any questions.
Feel free to use the whole thing we've provided, parts of it, or simply create a text of your own. You know your audience and how best to share the work of this organization with your friends and colleagues, but we want it to be as easy as possible for you.
