GCES is an association of Christian schools around the world and is held once a year. This year, due to the pandemic, all schedules were conducted online.
Many schools attending this Summit are able to learn and exchange the process of set-up by department from the beginning of the Christian school. In addition, there are various tracks for each field, allowing effective exchanges between schools of the same character.
Jubilee School participated in the music track to exchange with various Christian music schools and explore ways to develop together. In particular, the focus was on the mission plan through the music education program.
This GCES, which was held for five days, ended successfully in the grace of God.
On October 24th, at 4pm, a Worship concert was held in the school concert hall. The concert was held as a collaboration between the school’s Chapel Worship Team and the Jubilee Church Worship Band. Because of the pandemic period, we had to do all the steps online, but the fever was the same as that of offline.
This concert was designed to provide opportunities for students living in various parts of the United States to worship together. After the pandemic, all the school contents were conducted online, and the chapel meeting was also divided into small meetings. This is because the number of members of the Worship Team living in Nashville was not sufficient, so it was difficult to prepare the same chapel size as before. Accordingly, the music director of Chapel was planning this concert with the Worship Band of Jubilee Church, which is in partnership with the school.
The song list prepared this time includes many old songs such as’So you would come’,’When I think about the Lord’,’No longer I’and’Habitation’.
“The lyrics of the old songs are really deep and the emotions of salvation are well expressed in them. So the meaning of the lyrics is kept to the fullest, but the music style is the current style, and we made it once.”
More than 80% of current students attended this concert online.
“It was so nice to be able to sing together after a long time. Praise seems to have a lot of power when we are together. The sound is so good that all the sounds are clear, so there was no problem with participating online. I wish there were many opportunities like this in the future. It’s good for us.”
The Chapel Worship Team plans to collaborate with the Worship Band of Jubilee Church in the future to provide this opportunity. In addition, in connection with Song Camp, it was decided to include students’ own songs.
In any situation, our heat of praise will continue to grow.
Jubilee School aims to become a so-called’small office’ that makes office space more compact and expands space for students as much as possible for students’ more free campus life next year.
The school’s policy begins with the worries to maximize the creative ability of students.
Jubilees School cannot use the outside space as a campus life space, so it must meet the campus life of students within the school. Therefore, the school is focusing on creating an environment where students can collaborate anytime, anywhere by expanding the classroom and practice space on the second floor as much as possible.
As a result, the library space is moved to two places on the first floor that were formerly used as offices. And each class room is expected to be turned into a music-only class room where classes and music work can be done at the same time.
The basic environment of creation is freedom. Heaven is a place where free spirits can settle. Jubilee School hopes that the school will be such a place for musicians.
Dr. Kim has been a director since the beginning of school. She ended her long term of office last September.
She is like a school pioneer. In particular, it has contributed greatly to the operation of the current school by strengthening the current school administration system with a small number of administrative team members from the beginning.
As she left school, she prayed and blessed God for the future of the school. The administration team also blessed and prayed for her next mission journey.
We hope that God’s blessings will be full in her future.
