ABOUT FFM 2017
The Festival of Faith & Music at Calvin College is a biennial conference that brings together musicians, critics, journalists, artists, and listeners for three days of discussing and celebrating insightful music that explores, in some significant way, issues of faith.
The Festival of Faith and Music is the gathering of a community of pilgrims who are on a journey to hear, promote and create the music of epiphany—music that catches our breath with its discovery of delight in the ordinary, eternity in the exceptional. We seek to revel in the mystery of the art form, comprehending it better through shared stories and experiences, allowing it to surround and teach us. We seek to discern the ways grace, love, compassion and the Christian faith are expressed in the world of popular music. We seek to be conscientious listeners, agents of renewal and prophets of the Light.
