Your Music -- At a Church Near You
In Host Your Own Concerts, I wrote about churches as a viable type of venue for concerts you can stage on your own. The trend's really taking off, with more megachurches hosting evening entertainment. While most of the events are spiritually connected, like the Left Behind movies, you can often find a church music director that's willing to entertain the idea of hosting a concert if your music has an overall positive message. And if your music is spiritual in nature, you can support your ministry with a "love offering" that often racks up more cash in one night than two months of coffeehouse gigs.
