The Faith Concert Series is a ministry of Faith Presbyterian Church, which seeks to:

  1. Give Glory to God through musical excellence. Music is given to praise God for his faithfulness in redeeming his people (Psalm 71:22-23).  Our artists combine God-given talents with years of study, practice, and refinement to proclaim Christ's excellence through heavenly art.
  2. Reach our community with diverse, professional-caliber concerts, offered always with free-admission. The Faith Concert Series hosts Carnegie-Hall quality musicians and is committed to making the gift of music available to our community at no charge.
  3. Educate and Edify our audiences. The musical selections of the Faith Concert Series run the gamut of the instrument on display, covering differing musical genres & periods, and always including sacred selections with a gospel emphasis. Artists' talking points provide historical context, explain musical technique, or offer personal testimony alongside the music.
