Dr. Dorinda Clark Cole's
6th Annual Singer's and Musician's Conference
Dr. Dorinda Clark Cole's 6th Annual Singer's and Musician's Conference
held Sept.22-25, 2004 A.D. at Greater Emmanuel Institutional Church
of God In Christ (J. Drew Sheard, Senior Pastor) in Detroit, MI., was
a Historical Landmark Event for both The Conference, and the Evangelist,
Singer, Songwriter Dorinda Clark Cole whom fans love and adore. Honored
by Mt. Carmel Theological Seminary with a Doctoral Degree for having
been recommended by Senior level Christian Administrator, and having
10 plus years of Christian Service among three other requirements which
Evangelist Cole flawlessly met, she graciously accepted her honor of
being awarded a Doctorate Degree with meekness,Praise to God, and joyful
reflections in her heart of following after the footsteps of her mother
The late Dr. Mattie Moss Clark.
Stunning in Appearance as well as Spirituality, Dr. Evangelist Cole
welcomed conference attendees with a Presidential Welcome on September
21,2004 at 7:30 p.m., for those who arrived for the Conference a day
or so early. The Presidential Welcome was very warm, friendly, and inviting
along with a staff of workers and volunteers who warmly extended hospitality
and The Love of The Lord Jesus Christ. Tuesday night's Presidential
Welcome was also facilitated by Evangelist Sabrina Jackson, MSW of Sabrina
Jackson Enterprises www.sabrinajackson.com and (888) 241-8195 who did
a very unique and interactive training session about Discovering Your
Personality Color Code with the purpose and intent for you to know how
to work closely and effectively with those around you based on each
individual's strengths. (that's a portion of what I gained from her
session). This lady came highly recommended by Evangelist Dorinda Clark
Cole for us and I recommend her to you too.
Each Day the Theme for this Year's Conference "God's Minstrels
Putting Ministry Back in The Music" 1 Samuel 16: 22-23, was reiterated
to conference attendees, especially during the daytime sessions. We
learned to put Praise back in the Music, we also learned to Discipline
back in the Music Ministry, as well as Putting Testimony back in the
Music Ministry, The Word of God back in the Music, and Putting WORSHIP
back in the Music Ministry. The Wonderful thing about this conference
is that Doctor Dorinda Clark Cole, being led by God, did ministry first,
then industry information after they ministered to the inward person,
which is the Believer of Jesus Christ inside of the Singer and the Musician.
There was a constant flow of the Holy Ghost during the day and the
night sessions, or evening services with Special Guest speakers in the
evening time such as Dr. Rance Allen, Bishop Richard "Clean"
White, Sr., and Elder Edgar O. Madison Jr. We conference attendees found
ourselves saying and thinking "we just heard the speaker in the
other session say the same thing, yet they built on each other's work"
It was clear and consistent Confirmation that The Holy Spirit was bringing
through each speaker, preacher, and clinician and each one built on
what the other was saying, only they presented it in their own unique
and helpful way.
The Singer's and Musician's Conference overall was very Enriching
and a Life Changing Event for those of us who wanted to receive the
Work of the Lord and be changed. Bro. Steve Harris from Los Angeles,
California stopped by the conference and out of a sincere heart to give
back and be a help and blessing to the people of God so that they can
succeed and prosper, gave us wonderful and insightful information and
advice that most people probably would not have thought of in order
to get involved in music industry and make things work for themselves.
Steve has a book and some videos that will help you. You should log
onto his website and buy something from www.brosteve.com or contact
