The Church Has Left the Building

Featuring Kyle Matthews 

Kyle is the featured musician during the Gathering Music Aug 26, 8:45 a.m. and then will also lead in worship 9:30-10 a.m. 

Singer-songwriter and teacher Kyle Matthews has been in demand throughout his 30-year career. His unique combination of inventive songwriting and spoken-word presentations bridge the gap between education and entertainment, setting him apart as an ideal concert artist, conference and retreat leader.

During two decades as a recording artist and staff songwriter for BMG and Universal Publishing companies in Nashville, TN, his songs were recorded by over 70 major artists and won the Dove, Stellar, GMA and numerous ASCAP and BMI awards. In 2008, he transitioned to local pastoral ministry and is now the Minister of Pastoral Care at the First Baptist Church in Greenville, South Carolina.

 “Artful Living, Creative Musical Writing”

Saturday, August 25 | 4:00 -5:30 p.m. | Assembly Room

The principles of "creative writing" mirror some of the wisest and most ancient biblical counsel on living a spiritual life. Contrary to the perception that art is reserved for "certain" people, this material is extremely practical and helps people see connections between spirituality and real life they may have never seen before. The Creative Writing stuff becomes an illustration rather than the point, and people come away with a sense that spirituality is an open door and that creative writing is a spiritual discipline anyone can do.
