The Texas music and arts forces had a great time at Divisional Family camp this past weekend.
The Divisional Band shared throughout the weekend, even adding a bold touch of old army style to the parade as they marched from the chapel to the carnival. On Saturday, up-and-coming cornet players Matthew Burn, Collin Dunn, Dawson Booth dazzled the congregation accompanied by the Divisional Band.
The Divisional Praise Team led the assembly in Spirit centered worship during the weekend. The band was exceptional and added infinitely to the quality of worship, helping unite the congregations' hearts in song to the Almighty. Their focus throughout was to bring praise to the matchless name of Jesus.
The creative arts participants ministered through song, scripture presentation, drama, and dance. Saturday night was the highlight of their ministry when they shared excerpts of "We Believe"- a creative arts and praise team partnership that focused on the essence of the Salvation Army's doctrine. The Joy of the Lord was felt as their ministry was shared.
The massed youth chorus added the icing to the cake on Sunday morning. They gathered together to sing a spirited gospel number "Your Name is Great" that featured a rap solo by Jerrell Gomez., and "All for Thee", a beautiful hymn setting shared just before the message.
One of the most touching elements was sprinkled throughout the weekend. Several videos were shown that shared unforgettable facets of our great Texas heritage. Joshua Muir's media ministry spotlighted some of the greatest people and aspects of our rich history. These videos will be released in the coming weeks on this website.

All in all, Divisional Family camp celebrated 125 years of ministry in Texas. The divisional music and arts team was delighted to be a part of it!
