Personal statement

Kevin Parks brings a diversified music interest and skill set to his role as University Musician, arranging and performing in jazz, R&B, gospel, pipe organ, spirituals, folk, piano improv, traditional choral and global genres. Kevin’s passion is to engage people in and bring life to the Gospel through a well-selected text and tune; to encourage everyone to participate in “making a joyful noise” regardless of perceived ability or experience. Music ministry has taken him across the country to serve in United Church, Anglican, Presbyterian and Salvation Army congregations, and as a leader in regional conferences and events. Kevin is a resource to church musicians,  worship  committees and clergy for developing best practices in music ministry programming, matters related to employment of church musicians, collegial relationships between clergy, musicians and lay leadership, and copyright/intellectual property rights in the church. Beyond AST, Kevin is Congregation Designated Minister of Music at St. Andrew’s United Church, Halifax.
