The Mississippi Conference on Church Music and Liturgy will gather at Milsapps College in 2022. Milsapps is located in Jackson, MS.
The week will be a time of spiritual renewal and learning. Year to year the faculty is made up of the country’s most respected musicians and clergy.
There are services daily, evensong to be held at St. Philips Episcopal Church, and the concluding service at the Cathedral Parish of Saint Andrew in Jackson.
Workshops on service playing, vocal techniques, children’s choirs, and service sheets will be offered.
You will experience great hospitality, excellent teaching, preaching, and singing. We are looking forward to making new memories in our new home at Milsapps College.
