Music & Arts

Choral Scholars Program

The purpose of the Choral Scholar program at First Baptist Church is to provide area college students with the opportunity to gain experience and training in church music while providing them a church home and a loving, supportive community to minister to them while they live in Winston-Salem.  Each student will receive a stipend for singing in the Sanctuary Choir and for serving as section leaders.  These scholars will be responsible for knowing all service music with acute accuracy, leading sectional rehearsals, and occasionally providing solo music throughout the liturgical year.

Ministry through the Arts

Because God is our creator, and our creation in God’s image makes us creative beings as well, our endeavors in the arts are an important reflection of our relationship to God. The Arts Ministry encourages the development of our artistic gifts and the use of those gifts in worship, discipleship, evangelism and service.  We invite you to express and deepen your relationship with God through music, drama, visual art, film and dance.
