In May 2017, Steve was invited by Fred Heuman, a friend for many years, to travel to Kiev, Ukraine to make up an International team. The worship conference ‘Music in Ministry‘ has been established for eight years now. Steve delivered several lectures and a few workshops. This is the first time Beracahmusic Ministries has travelled to the Ukraine (though 25 years ago, Steve was part of the Graham Kendrick team that delivered one of the first worship conferences in St. Petersburg, Russia).
During this trip to the Ukraine, hosted by the Ukraine Evangelical Theological Seminary the teaching impacted many, musicians, singers and worship leaders’ lives over three days (4 – 6 May). Such was the impact; Steve has been invited back in September 2017 to deliver specific training on Music Composition and arrangements (very similar topics he covers when teaching at London School of Theology). In fact, it was the conversation with the head of the Music Department at Seminary in Ukraine that triggered the possibility of Steve’s return trip in September.
As the economy is very challenging for many in the Ukraine, Beracahmusic Ministries International financed this trip to the conference in May as they also will this journey in September.
(We have also now partnered with the UETS to deliver several intensive courses over the next few years).
